Good reading! That was the topic at our group meeting a few weeks ago, and both times it makes you think how one just eats. Not to enjoy it but just to eat. If you slow down and savor you truly get the overwhelming enjoyment of your food. Feel the texture of the flavors, pick out the spices, the smells that fill your nose, and then in turn fill your mind w/memories, the sound of your body going "ahhhh" as it gets what it needs. Food itself is not the enemy, the way that we treat and react to food is. I am a foodie and proud of it!! I have found w/the new way that I am eating that slowing down and being mindful of what I am eating has been a huge help. If I am not eating as much as I used to I have to pay attention to what I am eating now and enjoy it. Thanks again Fullabella for the reminder!!!

Take care of your body. It's the only place you have to live.

Sunday is Fasting day
I do it every day and I live by it. Not a zealot, though. If my work schedule shows me working through lunch or things like that, I may eat at 10 or 11. But typically, my hours are between noon and 8pm. ...

WHY THE SCALES LIE
I read that you're somewhere around 60% more likely to keep your weight in check if you weigh daily, but then again 90% of all statistical percentages are made up on the spot. (I just made that up.)

A Diff. Kind of "Scale"
I'd agree with Deb. I'd take a few every couple of weeks. In most cases you're likely looking at a month at least to 'see' the progress.

That looks awesome. Unfortunately, I'm fasting today or it would be on for tonight. Will have to wait for tomorrow.
