Today I did well with my diet. I’m not hungry, but I think about food a lot (chocolate chip cherry smoothie is today’s topic). I want to improve my relationship with food. Good have us the need to eat but also the ability to enjoy many smells and tastes. I don’t want to eat out of boredom or distress. I want to eat healthy food that tastes good and will nourish my body. I think I’m going to experiment with sauces and seasonings with this goal in mind.
Midfielder, I struggle with water intake too. I get dehydrated really easily. What has helped me is getting five water bottles (about 17 Oz each) and numbering them. Then I set goals to drink one every couple hours. I leave them on the table or in the fridge so I see them throughout the day. It has really helped me keep my water goal in mind.
Kazz, the imagery was gross, but I get the feeling behind it. I hate sometimes watching people eating something I’m abstaining from. Especially sweets!
Thanks for the encouraging words Allie, Wendleg, and everyone else. I don’t have much of a support system here, but I’m glad I found this forum. It’s really great to get and give encouragement.
