Default Now that you don't eat...what do you do with your spare time?

I guess this is a question for those of us who are/were emotional eaters/bored eaters. Here is a list of some of the stuff I'm doing instead of stuffing my face (unless it's on plan of course!)

1. Exercising!
2. Posting on 3FC way too often!
3. Looking for new recipies
4. Obsessing over my food journal
5. Going through my closet looking for clothes that are too big to donate!

What are you doing?
My Journey

I'm learning to make toothbrush rugs and sewing a good bit

The only time we truly fail is when we give up and stop trying. Everything else is just information to help us find our way to success.

Short term goal Onderland
Mid term goal 185 lbs and no longer obese

I'm learning to sew too, but I also enjoy miniatures because they let me work with different craft skills.

The gym
Cuddling with my cat
Hanging out here

..but to be honest, most of the time that I would have spent eating back in my out-of-control days, I now spend THINKING about eating and wishing it was time to eat and counting down the minutes until eating is going to happen again. I'm workin on it! I really need to find something I enjoy besides food xD

Waiting impatiently for spring!

I stopped watching so much TV because that was when I would eat. SO, instead, I read, type on the computer, exercise, clean the house...I try to keep my hands busy.

Playing video games! Ha, I'm such a geek... but seriously, you can't eat when you are playing a baseball game on the PS3. I am also building a dollhouse. Can't eat with a paintbrush or a bottle of glue in your hand.

I try to make time every day to read. ( Currently reading The Poisonwood Bible - which I highly recommend.)
When my hubby is home we play video games together or he helps me try to make sense of my physics homework!

Oh yeah & exercise

I knit, sew, read and drive my husband crazy.

I play computer games while I wait for dinner to cook, I distract myself with projects. I like having my hands busy with knitting, that seems to be the best for me to "think through" why I don't need to eat.
