I've been "hungry" all day. I ate my meals and snacks and I'm still "hungry". I drank tons of water and I'm still "hungry". I watched a movie and I'm still "hungry". I come to 3FC and read and look at all the progress pics, and I'm still "hungry". I exercised to keep my mind busy, but yep you guessed it... I'm still "hungry"!
I stayed on plan and I actually still have 170 calories left for the day. I think I'll save them, I'll probably have a salad later on.
I know you know the feeling... You eat your dinner, you know you've had enough to eat but you're still "hungry" for something else. It's been like this all day long. These are the days I fear the most when I'm so desperately trying to stay on plan so I can become a healthier person.
Foods start calling my name. That evil temptation rears it's ugly head and says "go ahead Glenda, you can make up for it tomorrow, one bite won't hurt". But I know it will hurt. It's times like these that I know if I give in and have what ever it is I'll most likely eat the whole bag, box, package, etc...
But on a good day, I can have these same foods and be ok with it. I don't eat the whole thing and I can have a reasonable portion.
It started yesterday, My 8 yr old daughter wanted to eat pizza. I let the temptation override and I wound up inside the pizza place. Then something miraculous happened. They told me the buffet was just over and I would have to order off the menu if we wanted to eat. I knew we wouldn't have enough time to order something so off we went to Wendy's, my go to FF place for half way decent and healthy fast food. I don't eat there very often though, only when needed really. I did fine for the rest of the day.
And then... Today happened. Like I said it's been one of those days and I just needed to vent a little and I figured I'd vent in a place where other people actually understand me. I actually feel better now that I got it out. Less "hungry" now.
