Chew, chew, chew

The bubble blowing experiment is helping!

A few days ago, as I was returning home from a chiropractor appointment, I realized that I would driving past a grocery store. Suddenly, there they were, the urges to eat. So I popped a piece of Bubblelicious bubble gum into my mouth and started to chew, chew, chew. Now don't get me wrong, I still planned the binge in my head; what I wanted to eat, when I was going to eat it, how I was going to hide it from my husband, but somewhere I found the strength to drive past that grocery store. The fact that my mouth was already occupied with a flavour, the texture of the gum, the sweetness and the actual chewing motion really backed up my decision to not pull into that parking lot.

It may not seem like a big success, but I will celebrate each success as they come.

I'm trying your chewing gum therapy. You're right, the more popping and cracking and socially unacceptable noises you can make with the more effective it is.

I'm wondering if I could do it but each time I saw success stories in losing weight I became more determined to do it it's only that I don't know how to start.I have heard
something about a formula that will give you a gastric bypass effect but no surgery by Roca Labs, is it true?

You look amazing... I just found your blog so I have alot of reading to catch up. I had a lapband, lost like 133 pounds and had some issues. So I had it removed and I am revising to the Gastric Bypass... I can't figure out how to follow your blog. *Maria*~DiZneDiVa-Confessions of a Cupcake Addict www.danceofthesugarycupcakes.blogspot.com
