Recommended Posts

Not that I recommend it to anyone..

So a week or two ago... I kept smelling a funky order in my home and I thought maybe a mouse had died in my sofa because it was coming from that area and after a thorough search under and around the couch I couldn't find anything. I told my bf to throw it away because well, mice creep me out and I certainly don't want a dead one in my couch. So he did... and maybe 2 hours after he got back from the dump... I noticed the smell was still here, got to looking and found out I had stupidly forgotten Water in my carpet shampooer and it became stagnent ( sp? ) and started to reek. GREAT! There goes my couch for nothing! ( it was old and worn out anyway )

Anyhoo... to my point.. Since the couch is where I'd always eat my meals and watch tv and snack all the time since it's gone and I don't like my bf recliner.. I don't sit and eat anymore.. lol

I think I've lossed maybe 3 lbs since the couch has been gone and more to come --- if this makes sense or you can relate.. let me know so I don't feel so strange. lol

I can sorta relate. I didn't get rid of the couch but I do insist that every meal is eaten at the table. That was always a rule growing up and now it is a rule here too. ~Mandy

When I was working with a therapist to overcome my eating disorder, she asked me where I usually did all my eating. I said on the couch. She told me in order to break the pattern of the addiction to break the pattern in how I go about it. She asked me to eat in a different spot, different chair, different room. It really does help!

And hey! You get to go buy a new couch!

We eat at the table and the TV must be off. It is in another room but I don't even want it in the background. I was raised that meals were to be shared by the family and that was for family time, no tv no radio, it was food and family time. I have enforced the meals at the table and every now and then we have Snacks while watching tv but not very often. I may be old fashioned but my daughter is proud to say that she eats dinner every night with family. ~Mandy

      Hey October Surgery friends...how are you doing? I've lost 15 lbs since surgery on 18th.42 lbs overall. Wearing clothes that feel great. Had a bout of cold and stomach flu and still having some nausea off and on after that but getting better, I think. 
      Seems like I fill up and have minor pain quicker when I eat hot foods rather than cold. Anyone else notice this?
      Still sooo glad I did this.

        I had surgery Oct 29. Lost 35#. Plateau now. But seeing what clothes fit now is encouraging.
