Whenever I need to eat less, I imagine...that I'm a homeless or poor person...or I'm on a deserted island...and I CAN'T EAT no matter what I WANT, no matter how bored I get or how much I crave. It sounds a bit crazy and silly, but it works for me SOMETIMES...it depends on how good your imagination is. The "problem" is we are surrounded by food...almost every single TV commercial has to do with food! It never goes away! SOMETIMES I just wish I could move away...to a poor third-world country where so many fattening foods aren't so readily available...I hope I helped...please don't give up on losing weight AND please don't give up on walking...I know it's much easier said than done but...Good luck!
PS--Drink tea or coffee when you're hungry if ya can
: Hi. I am a 24 year old female with muscular Distrophy. 18 Months ago when I got married I was 5'3"tall and weighed 112 pounds and was able to walk some. Because of MD I fall alot and 4 months later I fell and broke my knee. I then became more dependent on my wheelchair and gave up on walking again because I fall so much. Because I no longer get out much, I spend most of my days in front of a TV set and I am almost always bored and very hungry. I eat 3 meals a day but I usually find myself munching on a bag of chips or eating a bowl of icecream. As a result I have gained a tremendous amount of weight and there are now very few exercises that I am still able to do. Last week I weighed 187 pound with most of my weight being in my belly which is nearly 50 inches round. I am starting to have much difficulty wheeling my huge body around in my wheelchair. My husband also has a very hard time lifting me out of my chair.
: I'm not able to do many exercises because of limited arm strength and I can't seem to stop eating during the day.
