The hunger is killing me

I got on the scale this morning, as I do every Monday morning, and became a little frightened at what I saw. I'm slowly undoing all that I accomplished last year, and I feel shitty about it.

I've been eating like a total asshole the last few months, because for some reason I find comfort in food. That doesn't even make sense because it's not like I'm particularly unhappy or depressed about anything. I'm just annoyed with the situation.

So today I'm trying to do things right, and all I can think about is hitting that vending machine and getting candy out of it. If I can just hold out for two hours, I can have dinner and probably feel a whole lot better.

The funny thing is that I catch myself over-eating and feeling physically not well for doing so. After my weight loss last year, my body adjusted and it doesn't like large portions of food. I get all crampy and bloated when I eat too much. It would be a damn shame if I gained back the weight I lost, because God knows I feel better being lighter.

Don't feel shitty (I know don't tell me how to feel). Guilt is optional and only serves to make you feel worse. Which in my case makes me want to eat more. The infamous cycle of bad choices.

If you're hungry, eat something. The key is what.

Waiting until later just prompts poor choices.

Drink some water, have an apple or something similar.

I am down 85 pounds since June 1 and I'll be damned if the candy machine will get me.

Jeff doesn't like fruit, which makes his battle a whole hell of a lot harder. Fruit and vegetables are such fabulous weight loss tools - I could never do it without them. They have a high water content and high fiber, both of which make them filling. Oh apple, you sweet sweet fiber-filled friend of weight loss....

Jeff doesn't like exercise either...(

Hmmm . . .

a dislike for fruit and the like does make the choice concept more challenging.

Does the celery with my BWW's tonight count?

Only if you dip it in the sauce and blue cheese too.

I don't know who you are Mr./Mrs. Blank Name, but I would never partake of a naked celery stick. BLASPHEMY!
