Default Take a deep breath.

This is something a read about a while ago. I find it helpful. Before you eat take three deep breaths.

First breath - say aloud or to yourself: "I am strong and in control."

Second breath - "I love myself and eat better."

Third breath - "When I eat better, I feel better."

It's doing a couple of things. It's starting each meal with positive selftalk. Also, it's making you take a few seconds between the meal being in front of you and you starting eat. Also - deep breathing is so good. It can help you focus and feel centered as you start your meal.

I find it actually helps me eat a little slower sometimes.

Just thought I'd share.

I can't lose 100 pounds....but, just maybe I can lose five pounds twenty times.

Thanks for posting these. I need some help eating slower! Since the baby, I eat ridiculously fast because I never know when she's going to melt down. But I do it even when the baby is no where to be seen!

The other thing I try to do before eating that helps me is to start with a large glass of water. I finish that water before I eat.
