Understanding triggers- Newbie post
I am a new user on this forum so I'll start with some background. I am currently on Cambridge Weight Plan SS. My goal is to loose 11stone 5lbs on this by December 2013 by doing the plan 100%. Currently, I am 21stone:( but that will soon change:D.
I was thinking about reflecting on my "food triggers" in order to break this habit. I know that I eat when emotional, excited, down, bored, hungry or when I see foods which I find very tasty. But also I sometimes experience an overwhelming feeling that can easily overpower me when faced with certain foods. No matter how much motivation I have, I still have difficulty overcoming that feeling and I am not sure what it is:sigh:. I was wondering if any of you experience that, and how you deal with that? How did you gain more awareness of your triggers, and what techniques have you used to overcome this....
I appreciate all your responses xx
