This has been a really hard week for me. I'm grateful I'm only up a couple of pounds. This was the last week of a contract job that I have really enjoyed. Even though I usually do consulting / contract work, it's always hard when I end a job. I do worry a lot about the money, and I never know how long it will be before I get another job.
I think the thing that really triggered the cravings though was one day I was drinking Crystal Light all day for my liquid. I started snacking more, thinking I would just cut down on my dinner. But, I ended up being hungry at dinner and probably went over about 500 calories for that day. The next 2 days I was still much hungrier than usual and my eating got all crazy. And then I started feeling tired and hungry and yucky, so of course I figured eating would help all those feelings!
I was so tired last night that I came home and got into bed. As soon as I put my son to bed, I went to sleep and slept about 10 hours. I'm feeling much better today and ready to get back on board. I'm sick of feeling that hyped-up, foggy, high sort of feeling I get when I'm eating too much.
