I'm another knitter, although I usually only do that in the winter around Christmas for some reason. I'm also a quilter, and that helps although lately I haven't felt like sewing and I'm not sure why. I spend a LOT of time surfing 3FC, time which could better be spent out walking or cleaning house I'm sure! But this place has been immensely helpful in helping me to realign my thought process, so I'm not going to beat myself up too badly over that.

Short-Term Goal

One dancer for each 5 lbs lost!

I do beadwork. Like knitting, that keeps my hands busy and I never eat while I'm doing it. I just need to do it more often or find some more things that help.

Echoing so many other responses here...
Reading, cleaning (though sometimes that'll backfire if I clean the kitchen, hehe), 3FC...Sometimes I'll just pop in a pilates dvd and be at that for an hour or so, or I'll blast my music and dance around if my roommates aren't home.

read, play on the internet (that's what i'm doing right now, actually - avoiding eating before dinner), and play with my dog - if i eat while i'm playing with him, he steals it.

Running and movies are my distracters. Boredom eating is a killer for me.

Default Dishes

I'm usually only binge-crazed in the evening. I find that doing the dishes is perfect. I tell myself if I'm still feeling the need to snack after doing the dishes then I can, but the amount of time it takes to do the dishes is about perfect. We don't have a dishwasher, so the dishes take about 20-25 minutes -- just the right amount of time to get a grip.

I like going outside with my boys, praying, or going for a run.

and i like to read magazines. it's hard to flip pages and eat at the same time

Definitely 3fc.. I spend a lot of time on here reading and it's very motivating! The wii, world of warcraft (i also am a dork haha), and walking/hiking are good distracters for me

Coming to this website and reading through posts is definately a source of distraction and motivation...also, taking hot baths, ebay, playing the wii with my son, anything that gets me away from the kitchen!

Trying to distract myself when I'm home and alone is the worst! I'll try to call someone, or talk online, or go find a roommate to take my mind off it. Otherwise, sometimes I'll brush my teeth! Because I usually snack at night, once I brush my teeth its a signal to my brain that I'm done eating for the night (or I'm just too lazy to brush my teeth twice).

I like to go driving- I fill up a huge bottle of water, crank up the car radio, and just go. I drive the back roads, and just chill.
