    Was wondering what you all do to distract yourself from the hunger or cravings!

    I'm thinking a nice hot bath, or painting my nails or something like that will help.

    Thought we could all share different ideas.

    Watch telly
    come on here and Facebook
    bath
    early bed

    work full time, and apart from a 11:15 snack habit that appears to be the hardest to break ( I have half a bar then, cut into little squares)
    I also walk most of my lunchbreak
    OH is very good in wanting a walk after teatime

    oh, and I play with my computer, stuff like sort out my music
    put DVDs on my iPhone

    and up n down the stairs to pee
    a lot
    Must go.......

    Im the same maggie up and down the stairs to pee. Starting to wear the carpet out. I half the shake so ive got something for mid evening when the hunger sets in.

    Online window shopping and looking at holidays dreaming about actually being about to wear a bikini without it looking like cheese wire.

    Wish I had room to grow veg, but have the tiniest back yard known to woman - and it is full of the council bloody bins, bins for this, bins for that, I know we have to recycle but this is getting rediculous! Nowhere to even sit and catch some rays when we get some.

    Lost 10 stones on LL/Exante a couple of years ago, have regained several stone so giving WW a go.
    This may sound a bit screwy and might not be for everyone, but I scrutinise cook books and cooking magazines for great sounding recipes and work out all the nutritional stuff and then save it in my phone for when I am eating again. Bit sad but it floats my boat.

    When I can't even face that and there is tasty food about owing to husband & daughter's dinners, the bath is the only place - no food smells, just a deep hot soak when I contemplate where I have come from and where I am going diet wise.

    Like the others, coming on minimins can also be very helpful.

    I have been watching Masterchef - sort of to deliberately de-sensitise myself to food imagery!
    I don't have a bath in my flat, just a crappy little shower, but I went to my mum's the other night and had a nice long soak. Made me feel real nice! I bought a sachet of face mask and everything!

    Seems to be a lot of it about lately - across assorted fora, as it happens. Personally I blame the weather causing cabin fever, and everyone needs a bloody good party.

    Cross stitch is brilliant, it is really addictive and takes your mind right off food, I usually have the radio on in the background.
    Gardening, it makes you move and tone up.
    My standard fallback if I don't feel like doing any of those things is either spring cleaning or making curtains/bedspreads for the house.
    Finally checking out the internet for all those brilliant clothes I'm going to get when I'm thin :)
