Unhappy Really wanting to eat today!

I'm having a hard time sticking with it today, day 6 on phase 1. I've eaten well, haven't given in to the cravings, but the desire to just keep eating has really been attacking me, and I know I'm not hungry. I have sleep issues and I'm incredibly exhausted right now. I think I'm quite accustomed to grabbing sweet foods for a pick-me-up when I get this way, and right now I'm just suffering through Some shortbread that my son made last night is really calling my name though, so I thought I'd post this in an attempt to keep from inhaling the whole box! Hope everyone is having a good day!

I can relate Jenny when I am tired I really crave sweet carbs. Lack of sleep can be extremely hard on your diet. Taking a 30 minute nap if you can sometimes helps.

This time change really seems to stink this time too. Why is everyone having such a hard time sleeping? Messes up the whole day!

You can do it !!

Try to stay strong and hang in there, Jenny. Have some SF jello with FF Cool Whip or a no sugar added popsicle to help curb those sugar cravings! I found that chewing a stick of SF gum helps a bit, too, as does a hot cup of tea with splenda.

I suffer from insomnia, so I can sympathize with you on the sleep issues. A cup of Sleepytime Extra tea or Tension Tamer tea helps immensely.

When I feel like that, I usually try to grab a quick nap during my lunchbreak at work, which helps a lot.

I'm hoping you've stepped away from the shortbread and had a fudgesicle instead.

I agree about the hot tea and milk -- decaf, of course. You know, sometimes you just have to go to bed. If I'm asleep, I'm not eating!
Victory (over donuts) is not being free of the desire...its having the ability to say NO!!!
