Day 72- Sneak Eating

From 100 Days of Weight Loss by Linda Spangle

Oh man, this is one of my pitfalls- Sneak Eating. I am horrible since I will eat while I am making dinner. No one sees me eat because they are busy doing homework or they are not home yet.  Then, I will eat while it is  time to eat dinner too, but I am good with my portions and I make myself look good at the table. Then afterwards, I will pick at the food as I am putting it away.  I am a good diet eater in front of my family, but I have this nasty habit of Sneak Eating that I have to break for good.
Now, I have been working on this. So what works for me may not work for you. I chew on gum while I am making dinner so that I don't sneak food and I will drink only water after dinner instead of pick at the food when cleaning up.  It works for me. 
When I was sneaking I was sabotaging my own goals and I was feeling miserable about it.  So another thing that Linda Spangle suggests is to always in front of the presences of others. This stops me from pigging out on that carton of ice cream straight from the freezer. I have asked for support on this and it has made a world of difference.

Come up with your own-
No More Sneak Eating Plan
Share it!
And do it!
It will make all the difference!

Always on the move,

I have been sneak eating more lately...think because I am not doing my mini meals during the day. So, when dinner comes it is snack here, munch there and then have dinner...thanks for the good idea about the gum!!
