Distract yourself

The NAWLS Small Bite for March 31st is
Distract yourself.  
Instead of counting the minutes until the next meal, put something other than food in your mind. Call a friend (you don't have to say why if you don't want to). 

Better yet, do something that will make you proud of yourself. Exercise, for instance. Many people hate it, yeah, but when you start substituting something that will make you feel good about yourself (exercise) for something that will depress you (head hunger), you'll, well, feel good about yourself! 

Action for the day: 
Instead of thinking about food today, find something else to think about. Every time you notice you are obsessing about food, change your focus. Do something to distract yourself.
