I'm just switching from Weight Watchers to basic calorie counting on MyFitnessPal. Over the past month, I'm down 8 pounds even with several slip-ups.
My mom is a cook at a daycare and as one of her job perks, she gets to bring home leftover food from the kitchen. This time around, she brought home two large bags of french toast. Delicious, delicious french toast.
Sweet breakfast foods, along with cake/pastries, french fries, pepperoni, and barbecue potato chips are huge trigger foods for me. I have a hard time resisting them when they're around me, and when they are in my own refrigerator looking at me when I open the fridge, it makes things even worse.
I've eaten dinner, and I'm still not only physically hungry, but my craving for this french toast is overwhelming. Still, I've never been able to resist downing multiple slices of the stuff. I've never been able to only eat one slice.Typically, I can eat close to half a dozen slices without it even making a dent in my hunger.
At the same time, I know I might be going to IHOP later this week (I have several free entree coupons and no job, so coupons are how I pay when we go out to eat). AND I have a Memorial Day/Children's Birthday party shindig on Monday. However, no matter what I try- eating a healthy dinner, drinking water, etc- I cannot ignore the fact that there is french toast in my fridge and it is driving me insane!
