Thank you all for the support. I will take your considerations in. I think I felt hungry, after looking at what I ate yesterday, was because all I had for lunch was a tossed salad. No protein what so ever. That I'm sure could have been the problem. I have never done that before and I think I may have been a little depressed because of how I felt unactive as well. I don't over eat when depressed, this was the first time, ever. I didn't like that. But I am doing so much better today. Thank God!!! Well thank you all again, I really appreciate your help.
Our family are HUGE pizza lovers!! I now make mine "home-made". I have found ways to "skinny" down my pizzas. I use tortilla shells as the crust and put lower cal/fat toppings on. More veggies- like slices of tomato and lots of mushrooms. I also add some extra seasonings too! We will throw in a treat nite every other month or so and do go out on a Saturday nite for pizza. I'm a firm believer in a life style change not a diet.
You said you felt extremely hungry last night. Why was that? Did you undereat during the day? Did you meet your protein/fat goals?
If I let myself get extremely hungry, I want to go berserk on food too. The key is to use food to manage the hunger and try not to let it get to that extreme level. Keep good snacks on hand and don't skip meals. I really get uncomfortable when I have to "muscle through" extreme hunger. It feels awful!

I think it takes an incredible amount of strength to resist and maintain control. Think strong. Get a glass of water and require yourself to DO something before you feast...A walk, a load of laundry, write a letter, clean the bathroom. Sometimes it helps to just trick yourself into thinking of something else.
I have that problem about once every two weeks, knowing I am not hungry, but indulge in something. I think it is mind set.

I failed miserably last night. I have an issue with pizza. I knew I should have had a piece and I indulged. I need to know if there is a way that works to help control the temptation. I am not usually an over eater but I felt extremely hungry last night and gave in. Does anyone have any advice? Appreciate anything.
