I asked you the other day if you stay in your clothes from the day or if you switch into sweat/pj's right away when you get home. So far 18 of you have answered and all most all of you have given some form of you switch almost immediately.
I figured/hoped this would be the case since it is exactly what I do as well.
I started to think back on this habit and when it started. For me it started in college when I started to gain weight, yes the dreaded freshman 15.
I realize that it is just so much more comfortable to be able to come home and put on something comfortable and forget your day. I think though that as we start to unwind so does our motivation and awareness of our bodies. We no longer feel uncomfortable in our clothes that may be a little to tight and that extra few end of the day points look so good.
The day that I asked this question I got home and actually stayed in my jeans that I had worn that day. It was SO hard not to rush to my room and change. Something in my mind switched though by not changing. I wanted to eat something but since my jeans were still on I was so much more aware that my stomach was already full. I was eating out of habit not because I truly needed it. I waited till my stomach felt better before I ate dinner. I am thinking that by waiting to change I will hopefully become more aware of what my body needs and not just eat to eat.
How many of us have great days then go way over our points in the evening.
Would waiting to change help this at all?
