Don't do it girlie. You have the power, and this is another chance you have to show yourself that you are stronger than all those things that brought you here.

You know where your destination is. There are no pizza places along the way.

Use the power of your own words

Things i'm SICK of..

3) People saying they are going to start a diet and then still eating fast food, Chinese take out, etc. and then wondering why nothing is changing.


Remember that thread? You CAN do this. If you need to have that website up, then leave up the nutritional info. It's some scary stuff! Good luck!!! Go for a walk, a run, do a workout video, youtube some yoga, SOMETHING, to take your mind off of it!

Wait it out, I read once that cravings only last so long (maybe 15 - 30 minutes) paint your toe nails or go for a walk.

I tend to think of a staple meal of my diet that isn't my fave (for me it's eggs, spinich and lentils) and I say to myself 'well if I really am hungry I'll make myself that and see how I feel afterwards'

Not only don't I cheat but I don't make the extra meal because eggs, spinich and lentils is NOT worth the extra cals lol

If your dinner was actually a late lunch, was it early, like 3 o'clock or something? Then at 8:30 you were probably actually really hungry and your mind went to pizza. Part of this process (a big part) is figuring out how to space out the food you eat at the times you need to eat it to keep yourself from getting genuinely hungry. For some, that means small meals and snacks throughout the day. For me, that means eating a little lighter earlier in the day and having a substantial dinner. If I told myself "no eating after a late lunch!", yeah, I'd probably be thinking pizza by 8:30pm, too! Try not to set yourself up for a fall like that, because will power only goes so far.

My bf and I used to have a Pizza Hut tradition when we were in college. 2-3 months after being in the journey he was having a craving so I looked up the calories online just to see if it would FIT in my plan. It did fit but I could have 1-2 slices, not feel full and take up a huge chunk of my calories.

Papa John's Pizza Nutritional Info (from their website)

Large Cheese Pizza 290 cal per slice x 8 slices per box = 2320 calories
10 g fat (4.5 saturated) per slice x 8 = 80 g fat (36 g sat)
720 mg salt per slice x 8 = 5760

(It's about 2/3's that if you get the Thin Crust

I found just reading the nutritional info mind-blowing and would normally nip a craving in the butt!

Get yourself some wraps and veggies and make your own May not be as easy as pushing a button but cheaper, much more satifying and you can have a lot more of it before you start hitting too many calories.

I am far from giving advice to someone but this past week what has been working for me was: I think to myself, Lets say I got the pizza, and ate. How do i feel afterwards? I remember all the times I have had pizza and felt awful afterwards. So what is point of getting pleasure the first few minutes and then sickening feeling that follows it hours later. Not to mention increase in weight. Oh how easy it is to put on the pounds and so darn hard to lose it.

Keep frozen pizza in your fridge. The Lean Cuisine pizzas are REALLY good. If you absolutely must have a pizza, make one of those. Cut it into four slices, and put it on a small plate so it fills up the entire plate. You can trick yourself into thinking "Wow! I had four slices of pizza! I'm so full!"

Believe it or not, it works!

I think you have a lot of great suggestions for the immediate future. One thing that has helped me wean off of fast food pizza is making my own. I make my own thin whole wheat crust, sauce, and then use a moderate amount of fresh mozzarella and a ton of veggies and chicken breast. The pizza tastes infinitely better than what you can get at a restaurant and I can eat 3/4 of it and it's 600 calories for that amount (or eat 1/2 for 400 calories). Plus I don't feel guilty afterward.

I honestly don't like the taste of fast food pizza anymore (I do like real Italian pizza, though, but it's so expensive that we only get that on special occasions) so I'm not nearly as tempted to get something like Papa John's. I think become a food snob has helped a lot with my weight loss.
