Do you work?....do you have anything to focus on other than food (& obviously your daughter)?

When I was pregnant I was so determined not to gain weight that I banished all junk food from the house. I swam almost every day. I even went downhill skiing the week before I had my daughter. It took mental toughness & determination. I was also busy working on my BS degree ehich I got 10 months after my daughter was born. I didn't have time to even think about food. I had 3 job offers before graduation & started working at my computer career the week after graduation.

My first career position was in Westwood Ca where there were wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed going out to eat BUT the rest of the week we all played racquetball at the gym the company paid membership for. I spent most if my career playing ravquetball at lunch so when I did splurge & eat out it had little effect on my weight.

I was so busy on my my work projects that I had no time for anything but a quick bite to eat & I did music (played my flute) & performances with groups in all my spare time along with keeping my house & marriage going & continually fixing the messes my H made. I was also treasurer for many years in the HOA where we lived & was always dealing wuth problems from that.

I never had time to think about food or eat anything other that what I needed to just keep functioning.....but it definitely kept me from having time to binge of any foods.

Just a thought.....MAYBE you have way too much time to dedicate to food in your life....though I have no idea what you are actually involved with in your life
