Eating Before I Get Hungry

I woke up this morning and did some writing over at No Credit Needed.  I’ve written an article about time management that you might like.

As I was writing the article, it hit me that I never wait until I’m in crisis mode to make financial decisions.  No, I have plans in place for managing my money and my finances.  But, when it comes to eating, I am almost always in ‘crisis mode’.

I usually eat – and then over eat – only when I am ‘hungry’.  And, by hungry, I mean starving.  So, I create this never-ending loop of starvation, gorging, starvation, gorging.

As hard as it is to admit, I haven’t done very well the past three weeks.  I haven’t gained any weight, but I haven’t lost any either.  And, I think that the main reason is that I went back to my old habits of trying to ‘diet’ – instead of following the 4 Golden Rules.

This morning, I sat down at the table, well before I actually ‘got hungry’ – and I ate a very small amount of food.  Now, two hours later, I’m not quite ‘hungry’, but I know that I will be in just a little bit.  So, I’m going to go ahead and eat, BEFORE I feel like I’m starving, and see how that works.

    Well, at least you didn’t gain! I’d take that as a success. Keep on keeping on!

  • On the positive side you’ve maintained your weight and haven’t gained. Plus, you’ve recognized the behavior.

    Keep going. I’m cheering for you!
