Cravings...(Fair warning, only read if you are NOT dealing with cravings right now)

Sunday, September 06, 2009

OMG! I've done so well this last month, but it's "that time" and so I'm craving anything and everything sweet. I was at my in-law's today and was going to eat a fresh baked cookie (it was going to be my second) and my husband actually took it from my hand. I was ticked, and my feelings were hurt. I know he did it "for my own good", but still. What is worse was earlier in the evening I told him that I really wanted to go to Braum's and get a treat there, but he said, "no, you can't have that". GRRRR! That just makes it worse! My sister-in-law told me that I should be grateful that he's being so supportive and willing to hurt my feelings to make sure I eat right. I love him and I'm not really mad, but my feelings were hurt and I still want a hot fudge brownie sundae.

Also, my cramps are much worse this time than they've been before I started taking metformin, so I'm sure that my PMS symptoms all the way around are worse too. I've tried really hard not to be TOO bitchy at anybody and have been up front and let them know I'm extra cranky, lol.

I'm heading to bed so I'm not too cranky tomorrow. Maybe I can convince hubby to take me shopping for new jeans since mine are currently falling off me. I'm sure that will make me feel better and glad I didn't have the ice cream and cookies. :)

    Thanks for the support everyone! We went to one store for jeans today but I wasn't happy with the selection and then we went to a buffet for lunch. I filled up on fruit and a barbecue chicken breast. After all that I hit the grocery store and let me just say, I am a huge fan of the Yoplait Delights. I had the chocolate/raspberry last week and bought the lemon torte this week and so far the lemon is my fav. It's perfect for a sweet snack, and doesn't taste like yogurt! I like yogurt, but sometimes you want a snack like a pudding and the lemon one is awesome!.

    If it makes you feel any better, you aren't the only one suffering from that time of the month. I felt like I ate my way through the house today! Thankfully, animal crackers and watermelon are both reasonably low cal.

    I know how much it sucks at the time, but that kind of DH support is fantastic. Many women are dealing with saboteurs. Consider yourself lucky.

    It feels so good to buy smaller clothing. I recently brought two pairs of jeans. Next Summer, they will be too large. I promise you if, you don't eat too many sweets, you will have one of the sweets moments of your life when you reach your goal weight. This is what helps me push through a craving. Happy shopping.

    Back away from the sweets! Smaller jeans are much more satisfying!

    The cravings are real, but my friend they are not what your head says you need. When t.o.m arrives the body is asking for iron rich foods and complex calories to keep up with making new blood cells..
    Exercise is our best friend, it can dampen cramps as hormones made exercising decrease pain, it can dampen our appetite and give a feeling of happiness which is equal to what most people seek in a junkfood binge.. Sweet junkfood contents a source of sertonin, thats why many women flip out we want comfort.. But exercise is more user friendly without the bash on the head of real weight gained going over board.
    10 points to your husband taking that cookie from you. He loves you and wants you to succeed, give him a huge kiss for daring to defy your whims..
    Many women would kill to have a partner that actively helps to avoid defeat..

    New jeans really make you feel good. That was one of the best things I did for myself. In the last year, I have had to replace my jeans twice. Since I enjoy them so much, I get excited when they start getting too big for me. When not working I live in them. Enjoy that great feeling and appreciate the Hubby, good ones are hard to find
