The Reasons I Eat #knockoutthefat

I am down two pounds from last week! Woohoo! I now weigh 186.8 and have a BMI of 30.1. So far during this challenge I have lost 4.8 pounds. I have been eating healthier and using my George Foreman grill to “knock out the fat” in my meat.

I have been noticing recently that I tend to turn to food when I’m stressed out or bored. I’ve found myself taking breaks from what I’m doing to walk into the kitchen for something to eat. I’ll open the fridge, then the freezer, and then the snack cabinet. I  used to grab whatever looked good at the time. Now I open them up but I ask myself the following questions- “Am I hungry?” and “Is that healthy?” If I’m not hungry I will get a water bottle and walk out of the kitchen. If I am hungry I will look for a low calorie snack. I have found this to be helpful in losing weight because eating when I’m not hungry out of boredom, stress, or another emotion does nothing but put the weight on. I sure don’t feel less stressed, less bored, or happier after I am done eating whatever it was I chose to snack on.
