Unhappy sooo frustrated!

oh goodness. i'm new so i've been going through reading a bunch of posts and getting a feel for the sight and now all i want to do is eat!
i was just reading the "triggers" forum and it's taking everything i have not to run to the kitchen and eat the brownies sitting on the counter. the sad thing is i'm more of a salty binger but the brownies are the only thing we have that isn't good for you! how messed up is that?
sometimes it's so hard to imagine I will ever change. I was just saying today hopeful and dedicated I am to my weight loss and now i'm totally faltering.
ahhhh it's so frustrating!

Trust me what you are going through is not uncommon at all. Everyone gets cravings and coming here is a good way to deal with them. There are also many other ways to occupy your mind/time to keep from binging or grazing. I usually paint my nails, take a bath, do push ups/crunches, read, etc. Find some acivities you can do and enjoy in situations like this. You will feel way better once the craving has passed and you did not give into it! Oh and stay away from those brownies!

Oooh, 'food porn' like that triggers thread is an ideal cravings-maker. I'd avoid it- the more I think about and read about and obsess about food, the more likely it is that I'll have a massive binge, I find. Like Bikini ready said, doing something to occupy yourself can really help reduce those urges. If you can, get out and go for a stroll around the block

I too read the "What Triggers You" thread yesterday and before I knew it, I was on a binge. All those decadent foods listed one after the other just sent me over the edge! I came home from the store with 2 different types of cookies and a bag of chips. Plus, I ate anything and everything else in the house. I will never again read a thread like that. I am a food addict and I have to remember that.

I belong to a mental health forum too. When someone posts something that might be a trigger for someone else...they put a little icon on the post to indicate it could be dangerous to others. We could do that here.
