Whoops, I hurried so much, I put the wrong quote on this reply. I was actually replying to Dani's post about cravings, wanting to eat. Sorry, Alexis. I tried to cancel, but it wouldn't let me fix my goof, so here it is anyway.,
Dani, I kind of know what you're talking about. And this may not seem like anything to you. But as I'm doing my grocery shopping, which in times past would always result in some binge eating, from foods that caught my eye, (it could be sweets, it could be that premade rice, my indulgences would run the gamut....) I'll say to myself, ok that looks good, but I don't eat that crap anymore. I'll tell myself this in the grocery store, many times over, almost like a mantra--I'll also say these very same words to myself when I pass fast food places, which I used to haunt daily! I had Mickey D's for lunch everyday! And for some reason, it works. You say it enough, and you begin to believe, you really don't want to eat some of the crap you used to mindlessly stuff your face (speaking for myself). And you don't even feel a sense of deprivation. Maybe this is all looney tunes stuff, but it works for me. After many months of doing this. You could try it when you have cravings, find something you want to tell yourself, do it over and over, and u'll find you don't want to indulge as much. Maybe? Just a suggestion that I found works.
