When You are Totally Out of Control

When it is really tough, decide not to eat for 10 minutes. Set the timer. If there isn't anything you have to do, do something fun -- Spark, computer game, sudoku, whatever -- to pass the time. Reward yourself when you make it ten minutes (polish nails?) and set the timer for 20. Eat at next meal.

Meal Planning

I take a half hour on Sunday Morning to plan out my meals for the week. This way I don't have to scramble each morning making sure I have a healthy meal ready when I get home from the gym. I prepare meals in the morning befor work, so that my husband can put it in the oven when he gets home!

Put the fork (or spoon) down

Slow down - eat slower. It takes your brain time to catch up with what you're eating. Put down your fork or spoon in between every single bite - you'll be amazed at how slowing down and taking time to enjoy/savor your food helps! emoticon

Off and On Again

When I have a bad food day or meal, I get right back on track. Don't let it go beyond that meal or moment. It happens, I forgive myself, evaluate what happen and what's learned and move forward. I don't let it spin out of control or endlessly. Stop it quick and get back on track.
