OK ... I did manage to lose a pound this week, but it was a major struggle and I slipped up a few times. I don't know what's going on w/ me ... but I can't stop thinking about food ... bad food. Just this morning I was dreaming of home made potato salad ... this is not even on my list of favorites and it's probably been 10 years since I last made it and about 3 or 4 YEARS since I last ate it.
Why potato salad?
If it weren't for my kids ... last night would have been a feeding frenzy. I was
dreaming of a late-night pasta feast ... I never did any late night cooking and eating when I wasn't paying attention to my intake ... of course I always had a lotof junk in my house that's not there now. I don't have a quick fix to late night muchies such as chips or cookies in the house. I also came very close to going down to the kitchen and making pancakes at 10:30pm
But my son wasn't feeling 100% and I had promised him I would NOT go to the first floor and leave him alone upstairs ... I was afraid he'd wake up and find "missing".
Any ideas why this is happening to me? It's too early for PMS ... and my PMS
cravings are usually salty things. I don't want to "fall off the wagon" so to
speak ... but I'm really struggling and I don't know why.
Any and all suggestions are welcome. Remember ... at night I cannot leave my house cuz I have young kids and my husband works in another state ... so please don't suggest a walk or something, it's impossible.
Also, I know lots of Atkins and Carbohydrate Addicts Diet success stories and people report decreased cravings ... but these plans are not for me. I tried it and quit when I started gagging at the sight of my breakfast. I'm on a self-devised plan that includes some carbs in the form of breakfast cereal and fruit and on rare occassions brown rice or wheat pasta ... but for the most part I limit "starch" as opposed to all carbs. And I've had some success ...
Thanks in advance for your help. Everybody here is wonderful!!
