From Out Of Left Field

I am feeling hungry today! It’s that growly, deep down, want to buy twenty dollars worth of junk and stuff my face with it all type of hunger. Ug! So far, I have concentrated on the produce and I am planning on keeping it that way, but right now I feel like I am fighting a losing battle. I don’t feel bitter or upset about anything nor about these cravings I am currently having (which, unfortunately could turn out to be a problem), but I am sort of astounded that this seems to have come out of nowhere. I’m not sure where to go from here except to try and keep it under control. I will do my best to eat healthy and forgo the sweet, salty, and fattening treats that my mind is so focused on right now.


  1. ugh, i am right there with you. ditto to everything. good luck, keep your chin up!

  2. Cravings are a b*tch, but consider your options: (a) give in to them and experience a moment of pleasure and days of guilt and regret or (b) power through this tough spell and enjoy the feeling of empowerment that accompanies it.

    It does get better with time. I promise...

  3. Oh, I hope you made it through! I've made it and NOT made it, and it definitely feels better afterwards when I make it.

  4. Hang in there girl....strut around in those new size 18 jeans!!

    I've been craving Zaxby's like crazy....fried chicken tenders and seasoned french fries with their special Zax sauce.....been fighting it for 3 days now, so I finally got online and looked up the nutrition facts today to see if there was any way I could fit it into the calorie budget.

    1,300 calories for that one meal. Nope. No can do. Craving squashed. Losing this weight is more important than eating a bunch of fried crap. I know it is for you, too. Put your head down, keep your blinders on, and power through it. You've done it before...you can do it again. I believe in you! :)

  5. Hang in there. You are strong and will make it through this rough patch. You have done too well to screw up now.

  6. Gooooo....tooooooooo.....sleeeeeeeeeeeep......
    (I hope that worked ;o/ )

  7. late to this and hoping you were able to stay strong and try to embrace the void and not try to fill it.

    xo xo,


  8. I did pretty well. I could have done way worse so I at least have that to be proud of. Cmoursler, you made me laugh out loud with that! Thanks!

  9. Oof, I'm right there with you today. I don't know what's up with this hunger but all my usual stuff isn't keeping me full like it usually does and I am struggling! Hopefully it will pass soon. I'm doing okay but I don't know how much longer I can hold out! :-)
