In my last post, I was talking about my issues with food, and bad habits. I got some good feedback, including a mention of a weight-loss support group that a friend's mother used very successfully a few years back. I'm thinking of e-mailing the local contact person and see if there's a group that will work for me.

In the meantime, I am trying to do what I can on my own by being more mindful of what I'm putting in my mouth. I don't want to count calories or points or whatever because that just makes me stress out about what I'm eating. (One of the downsides to having an obsessive personality.) But that doesn't mean I can just shove whatever I want into my mouth without a thought, either.

Right now, I'm feeling a lot more focussed and mindful about my eating choices. Today, I have managed not to eat when I wasn't hungry, not to pick up my son's scraps and eat them out of habit. I haven't eaten without giving serious /thought/ to it.

I won't promise that this is going to be enough, but the admission to Oliver and then to you all has made me more aware and more thoughtful about the this. Hopefully that, plus the extra push I've given myself with exercise (which I only started a week ago, so I do need to be a little bit patient). And I think that joining the group might help me to /stay/ focussed and mindful. Which is what I really need, I think.
