Another Reason I Love SparkPeople
Friday, April 09, 2010
I had about three days in a row this week when I could not eat anything close to the number of calories that my body requires. I'm not sure why. I think it may have to do with my being highly motivated to achieve some other successes in my life, and I got distracted and didn't eat much.
Then there was yesterday, when there wasn't enough food in the world to satisfy me. I went over my nutritional needs by several hundred calories. Yesterday, I was dealing with my can't-be-my-ex-husband-soon-en
ough about financial matters. I'm sure there was a connection.
So I logged onto SP this morning, having to log all of the snacks I ate last night and feeling pretty miserable about that, and what do I see but a status message from one of my most inspiring SparkFriends saying that she feels the same way I do. She's starving and wonders why.
I really appreciate that even people who have had great success and reached their weight goals still struggle with food issues. I appreciate being able to connect with so many people here on SP who share the same problems and solutions and ups and downs that I experience. Thank you! I feel understood here.
