Brilliant. Just Great!

My range to eat - after adjusting my goal on sparkpeople has shot up to 1990kcals per day to maintain.

Yesterday morning I thought I would pig out or something.

But the happiness of reaching goal made me so happy that I wasn't hungry. All day. Like, please not right now, maybe later!

I'm so confused! Is it my body adjusting?

And today is the same. It's noon and I've had nothing but tea and I'm not seeing myself having anything for lunch because I'm just not HUNGRY!

If this keeps up I'll forget what it feels like to be hungry - I'm serious.

It's a strange new world.

Before - even after having had a proper meal I was craving sweet things - now forget the sweet things, I don't even want food!

This is the longest (closing in on around 29 hours) I've not been hungry.

Yesterday I had to force myself to have lunch - then force myself to have dinner when I realized that it was 6pm. By then I still hadn't reached the 1,100kcal mark so to bring it to a half-decent 1300kcal mark I had to resort to 2 reese's peanut butter cups to get to that total in fear of going into starvation mode.

Even then I was going into a deficit of 600kcals at the end of the day. *shakes head*

I've got no idea what's going on.

Was it the pressure of losing weight that was making me hungry?

Physical cues are heavily reliant on psychological factors. It feels strange.

    I'd say listen to your body. I think a lot of us gain weight because we overeat when we're not really hungry but we're stressed or the food just looks good. Wait until hunger kicks in and then eat in moderation. Also, spark is just a general rule of thumb, your body may actually need less cals to maintain depending on your metabolism. I definitely think you're on to something with "the pressure of losing weight making you hungry"! emoticon

    Could very well be! Its like when I decided to make a conscious lifestyle change instead of going up and down here and there (decided and actually believed it!) it just made me feel so much more powerful and took a weight off my shoulders because in life we all make mistakes but we have time to fix them.
