...feels like eating a pint of ice cream. or a whole bag of tortilla chips with salsa. just binging in general, for no other reason than i'm tired. because i LITERALLY just finished eating dinner. and when i think to myself, do i REALLY want to eat a pint of ice cream? my brain nods its head frantically saying YESYESYESPLEASEEEE while my stomach is looking at me like "are you serious?"

i haven't actually felt that binging sensation in a long time, and it used to be that when i'd feel that sensation, 30 minutes later i'd wonder what i was doing in the pantry having just sampled every box of cereal, bag of chips, crackers, etc. right now i'm looking that sensation in the face and saying "NO WAY!" for once!

because i know if my sweet tooth doesn't abate in about an hour or so, i've got me a lil 60 calorie snack pack and an apple :] my stomach knows if its hungry enough for that, then that's just fine, even if my brain is screaming for ice cream.

    Believe it or not, artificial sweetener may be part of the problem. It interferes with the brain's "enough" mechanism. I keep fruit like grapes and cherries around for healthier nibbling, and, for extreme emergencies, high quality dark chocolate in single serving packages.
    Good for you for facing it instead of repeating the old pattern!
