Golden Rules

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.

  1. 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!
