TWEET..don’t EAT !

21 Jan

I might be all brave and say that I am not going to have the same old boring New Years’ Resolution, like a 100 million other people, to lose weight this year…but what if reality tells you that you HAVE to ??!!!!

Yes, I just returned from one of THOSE holidays…EAT, DRINK and be MERRY !!!

But..I have also read that it is not that simple to just decide something and then it is done.

“THEY” say… only 3 out of every 200 people can change a habit by simply taking a decision about it.

They ALSO said that you can only break a habit by replacing it with another one.

So, here goes… I have a habit of nibbling…. mindless eating when I am not hungry…..just boredom…comfort…..time-killer….. whatever the reasons might be.

So, I decided that I am going to put a new habit in place – to TWEET every time I want to EAT when I should not or need not be eating….

If you are not on Twitter – sign up ..come on !!! Get with it!! It’s 2011…..

Find me at

Ok, you are going to hear a lot from me on TWITTER then this year ! But I don’t have a following on I guess that is a fairly safe place to go and dump my thoughts every time I get the urge to stuff my mouth. If I would do that on Facebook, I can be sure to be blocked from a few friend’s feeds, as I too can’t handle the traffic when people start telling you when they put ketch-up on their food…or just blinked. I promise not to tweet non-stop about my eating habits or what I did or did not eat the minute before, but rather tweeting about something on my mind, something I might see or feel right that moment. So, if you want to be in for a huge chunk of what is going on in my life on a daily basis, follow me on Twitter, because I am going to bring it on BIG time !!! Please do note that I will sometimes tweet not out of a need to eat..but simply because …

Follow me on Twitter to share my journey.

Or let me in on your secrets of how to shed the pounds after the Christmas eating frenzy, by leaving me a comment on the blog.

Or just for fun – tell me about your solutions for breaking old, bad habits?!

Would love to hear… and if you tweet about it – let me know …

Sorry, gotta go…need to go TW-EAT !!

    Hi Ilse,

    I too made the resolution goal to lose weight which just keeps creeping up on me. I weigh 30 pounds more than I did in high school! My new trick is to say to myself, “I love God, my husband and my health more than I do SUGAR” I have stopped eating most sugar and bread (which turns to sugar) I feel a bit tired but good and have lost 2 lbs in 6 days. Decided to stick with this at least 6 weeks and maybe for life……..

      Diane – sugar is the big evil – I agree ! And on top of the weight – I get regular have to REALLY watch that…and the bread – big one too??!! But do I listen…no??! SO bad…anyway – good thing we keep on trying !! Good to take it in small chunks like the 6 weeks and then extend . Much more achievable !!

    Thanks again for all your comments in the review. Good luck on the weight. I am in the stage of acceptance.

    Seriously I like your idea but mine would be more like…
    cheat don’t tweet
    tweet and then eat
    or how about
    eat, tweet and then cheat!

    • Ilze January 26, 2011 at 6:33 am #
