December 12, 2019
I feel like I approached the first step in the wrong way. Because I thought it would be difficult, it was. Having to answer a few questions every time I ate, my subconscious seemed to say... either don't eat so much or don't write everything down. I pretty much tripped on the first step before the first day was over.
It's been a few days since I tried the first step and I think I've learned a few things from that attempt...
-My overeating seems to be on autopilot a lot. Like I'm not always in control.
-That resisting a desire to eat is met with a stronger desire to eat. I can sometimes try to fight it, but I usually give in.
-I am often doing something "lazy at home" at times that I find myself wanting food.
So what can I do?
-Train my subconscious to not immediately worry that something's going to be difficult before I even try it.
-Be mindful, especially when eating.
-Go for a walk or be active some other way.
PS: Even though it says not to skip a step, I think I might jump to the second step on Monday.
