Things to Do Besides Eat:

Post  Snow White on Tue May 25, 2010 2:16 pm

Please add to this list:

give your self a manicure and a pedicure

brush & floss your teeth

brush your hair 100 strokes

do a conditioning treatment on your hair

wax unwanted hair

get yourself involved in painting something or making a needle craft or other craft (the thing about crafting is that your mind and hands are kept busy doing something positive---also you have to keep your hands clean so that you don't get your craft dirty---so you can't snack while you're doing it

read a book

watch a movie

do a puzzle

write letters to friends and family

I take a walk in the evenings after dinner

Sketch

mani/pedi (I know its a repeat but its a GOOD ONE)

sip bullion broth or hot tea

stretch (I used to be a gymnast so I sit on the floor and go thru my old stretches. lol)

GET ON HERE haha!

color... yes I know its childish, but it will surprise you how much it will take your mind off everything! I LOVE coloring pencils and printed coloring sheets)

read (I'm a nerd...)

Study (I'm learning my 3rd language)

I LOVE these tips, especially the last one about the movie. America's Next Top Model reruns always depress me because the girls are so darn skinny and beautiful.. and it reminds me of how I used to model as well. But now I know that instead of fantasising about what I want to eat, and then eventually giving in as always, I should flip on the TV and focus on that.

A friend of mine suggested checking urself out in the mirror naked before going to fix something to eat, but that has never worked for me... and is a bit weird...

I Freakin LUV this topic lol!!!

You could also try visiting a friend or walking ur pet or taking up a new hobby...

I think A LOT (not all people) eat out of bordem so it's good to have something other than eating to turn to Smile

PLEASE KEEP POSTING NEW IDEAS. It's good to keep giving each other options to revert to other than eating lol

yesterday i tried on a convertible dress.--> u know the ones that u can wear 15 ways or something. well i bought it when i was a little heavier than my starting weight- i would say around 129 or so, and i hadnt really put it on since then cuz i never really felt that great in it tho i loved the idea.

SO my point- After eating my 5 bites of dinner and being still ferociously hungry, i attempted to figure out the 15 ways that this dress can work, and OMG this dress fits like a dream now, i actually need to shrink it down a bit (its cotton so i hope that works out well). Im going to be visiting my boyfriend in philly in a week, and i plan on bringing this dress along with me, he btw hasnt seen me in about 2 months.... so im excited to show off my progress!!!

- that was dual distraction, and motivation! cuz my the time i was done flipping and tying this dress round and round i was done concentrating on my tum tum.

cleaning house

Post  Snow White on Mon Jan 16, 2012 10:17 pm

I wish I could be more motivated to clean my house...I'd rather just sit in hunger than do that!----So glad this thread is still alive b/c I started it forever ago! ; ))))

Here are a few other ideas:

have sex with your husband/wife

read a book to your kids

look at family photos

paint something

waste time on pinterest or facebook

learn how to do something new, something you always wanted to do

play Phase 10 (my favorite card game)

take a nap! that helps me put off hunger pangs, and I wake up not hungry.

These ideas are great!
Sexy123's about researching vacations is an awesome one! Maybe even go as far as book a vacation and make that your goal!
I waste a lot of time online shopping. Even if I don't buy anything and just put it in my wish list (for when i'm thinner)
Reading - a fav.
Online crossword puzzles
Walk the dog
