Default Comiserate with me! TOM hunger and cravings

UGH! I just want to shove my face into the biggest bowl of (you fill in the blank) I know it's completely TOM related and it's timing couldn't not be worse! The week before TOM is ALWAYS like this, I'm a bottomless pit and I want what I know is not best for me, and of course it always drops off those few lbs of water retention and b&@chiness!

What a pain to have TOM on your first week of reaching goal. Something's
always got to steal our thunder! But you are a pro and have been through many many of these monthly roadblocks. Besides, you look mahvelous!
This too will pass.

I'm waiting for TOM too and enduring the blahs and urges for crazy junk food.

Hang in there!

Oh man, I am in the same boat. But i found such a fantastic solution!

So my favorite thing ever is, embarrassingly, cookie dough. Not cookies, the uncooked stuff. But I found Smart Ones makes a chocolate chip cookie dough sundae that is 170 per dessert, in a 2-dessert pack. That was what I had yesterday when cookie dough was all I wanted in the entire world, and I feel like I made an ok choice, gave myself what I wanted, but didn't go over my allotted calories for the day. And because I let myself have something I wanted, I didn't go totally insane and eat everything in sight. woo!

TOM is the absolute worst. For four days I eat like total crap. I try not to go too hard on myself though, because if I do, when I snap out of it, I'll be miserable and depressed that I ate so much and give up on all the hard work I accomplished before it.

I am right there. Ol' Aunt Flo arrived today. However, I haven't felt the urge to binge just yet. I think because I have taken care of my salty craving with my daily regimen of whole grain pita chips and hummus. Salty snacks are really my vice - I don't usually crave sweets. So, I am proud of myself for staying on plan, despite the presence of potato chips in the house.

omg, NC...yesterday, the day before TOM...was the absolute worst. The hunger was crazy! I food journal, i was still kind of hungry when i had written down my food and was planning on something for dinner. When I was done, my food journal showed I had already gone over for the day. I also had my premenstrual migraine as well.

so i totalled up the exchanges, put the book down, and decided not to eat dinner. I felt in control. I knew if I kept going i would just feel worse.

remember, it is your body, and YOU are in control.

this thread resonated with me because I'm on my TOM right now

I had a dreadful case of the PMS munchies a few days ago. I binged and binged and didn't even care. On top of that, I was extremely depressed and the five-pound bloat made me ask, "Huh?!?!? WHY did I gain weight?"

It's true... it IS your body and you ARE in control, but I totally commiserate with you on how difficult it can be. Even when I was at the absolute top of my gain, I'd lose control during the TOM.

If you shoot down the cravings, they will go away in a few days and everything will be ok
