Looking at who what when where why; and how much Who? It's me. What? Eating peanuts, peanut butter, sunflower seeds, cheddar cheese. When? After work. Where? Arriving home. Why? Hungry. Not waiting until I've heated ... Read more
More Food

Yesterday I was telling myself: "I do NOT need more food." "I do NOT need more food." "I do NOT need more food." And: "Hunger is not an emergency. It just means that I will enjoy my next meal more." Reminded myself... Read more

I'm keeping my Advantage Response Cards right by my computer and rereading them more regularly to reinforce what Beck teaches. Eating sitting down. Key for me, and one of the first Beck lessons to fade. My recommitment to eating "on p... Read more
