There's been countless times that I've felt hungry after already having dinner. 2 nights ago I felt super hungry and wanted to go out and buy very bad food like a large pizza, cheesburger and fries, pasta, and everything else bad. I told myself no though over and over and instead had vegetables and kept telling myself I was not going to eat it because I already ate. It felt amazing to overcome that bad craving and not give in to thousands of excess calories. The next day I got intense cravings again but I also did not give in at all though I felt like I was literally starving. Again I told myself I already ate, and I did not need more food.
Now comes today. I already ate dinner but just an hour ago I started feeling like I was very hungry out of no where and like I had to eat. This time though when I told myself "No, you already ate and this is just a craving" it's like my mind actually listened. The hunger went away and I feel satisfied again. I feel very happy as well knowing I overcame my cravings! I hope to continue to be able to do this from now on :)
