When the year started, I thought I would start journaling to put my thoughts and feelings down. I thought that it would be a good way of dealing with my emotions. Now that June is almost over I am going to give it a try.

Since I got back from vacation, 10 days ago; I have been focused on losing the almost 4 pounds that I gained. I had just started to try Keto when I left and definitely did not eat Keto while I was gone. I wasn't totally unhealthy. As I have tried to get back to Keto/Atkins, I have found that I don't miss french fries, potato chips or candy. I do miss bread from time to time. I did have a piece on my birthday along with a slice of cheesecake. Right now I am trying to learn to tell if I am hungry or just bored. We all know what it is like to eat when we are not really hungry.

Today I am focusing on eating only when I am hungry.

    Good on You. I find if I think I am hungry to drink something and then see if I am still hungry or I was just thirsty.

    I play hungry? thirsty? or bored? with myself. I blogged about it yesterday, but it's as simple as it sounds😉

    Learning to know whether it is real hunger or just boredom or something else, is difficult. Writing can be helpful. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I downloaded a journal on my phone. I’ve found it’s so much handier than pen and paper. If I’m somewhere and I want to write it I don’t forget it by the time I get home even tho handwriting is so much nicer!!

    I'm doing something a little different. I'm trying to eat every 3 hours- whether I "feel" hungry or not. I am more in control (no getting caught hungry and can't eat right then) and I make better decisions.
