My group, T.O.P.S. is working on eating Mindfully. Last week, we tried dropping a hundred calories, daily. I had planned on doing this by making 3 small changes to my life style. I didn't do so well.
My three changes were (1) drink more water (2) make half my plate vegetables and fruit (3) more exercise.
I sometimes did # 1. I did do # 2 faithfully. I never did # 3.
My weight remained the same.
At least I didn't gain!
This week, I'm going to eat with my left hand. I'm right handed. Eating with your opposite hand will make you eat slower and give you time to think about what you're eating. Using the opposite hand will also give that part of brain muscle some exercise.
And there # 3--MORE EXERCISE! (See I am smarter than the average bear.)
