This has been a recurrent problem with me throughout the years. As I'm typing this right now, I'm surrounded by the sweet smells of some cooking going on in the neighborhood. Something sugary and buttery. UGH! I don't need this this early morning.
When I'm not trying to lose weight, these smells just drive me to go and stuff my face with something similar...or anything at all. I remember when I used to pass in front of a bread bakery everyday *sigh*. I would just have to walk inside and buy me some bread even though I didn't need it nor felt hungry.
I realized it was a problem when I was with a thin friend one day and she asked me: "Must you eat something JUST because you can smell it
?" Well yes! And I feel so guilty for being so weak and for allowing food to control my life that much!
Do you relate? How do YOU cope with smelling good and heavy food odors entering and filling your house when you're trying to leave lean?
right now. ***PLEASE HELP ME***
i know exactly how u feel-the smells of nice foods drives me insane especially when im not eating them as trying to lose weight!i cant watch ppl eat food im craving either-it makes me jealous and angry 2bh!and i have a v sensitve sense of smell 2!
