I'm craving sweets, salt, and fatty foods and I'm trying to get rid of my addictions and learn how to express how I feel and be able to deal with life problems in a healthy way. emoticon


I got want to do it and do this for me. My mind is in battle and my body is at war. I'm in battle with myself and if I can over come myself than I can over come it all and do it one day at a time, let it go and get one step closer to my goal.

Hello. I'm new and definitely a food addict.....I am following a paleo-plan to help break my addiction to sugar and wheat. So far, I'm liking it and I'm sure I will feel better once my system calms down from the years of food abuse I put it through. (Although, at times, a life without pizza....or at least pizza as I know it....seems a bit grim.) To make matters worse I am an emotional eater too...ugh. Not eating at night is probably one of the hardest habits to break for me.
I'm looking for buddies/friends; had to make my sparkpage private because of the crap I get at home, but if you sparkmail me, I'll add you.

Yes, I mock all who seek to tell me revenge is cold...it's not...it's the only warmth I know....

I'm okay today. I'm learning there are some days that I get that out of control food feeling and honestly there isn't much I can do to stop it. Hasn't been happening to much lately but I think me jogging/running and thinking of doing this 5k thing has been keeping my mind busy with other things besides food. I thought since I've also been smoke free for well over a month, I would have been more out of control but thank goodness it hasn't.
It's there though. It starts with a few dips into the frosting, then I want pickles, then I want ham and some over crazy mix and then I'm running for bathroom.
It's never going to go away...just one day at a time.

Healthy changes everything!

Just move! No matter how slow you go...
Your still lapping everyone on the couch.

I am feeling very over whelmed. I don't know where to start and I'm not sure if I want to lose the weight it just seems like a lot of work, that I don't want to do. I go to school and work 11 hours a day.

I'll start by saying I'm new here. In answer to the question:
In a nut shell...not good. I am a food addict...and it sucks. I am not overweight, but the women in my family are (mom, 2 sisters) and I am terrfied of getting there. So I went on a calorie restiction diet. 2 weeks of measuring and writing it all down. It went great, I lost a lot of fat in my butt and thighs, then I just got sick of it. Sick of raw vegetables, no grease (hamburgers, french fries, even cheese was out of the question), and having to KNOW what I was eating. (I actually can't think about sqaush or zuchinni right now.) So I stopped and 3 weeks of no "diet" and I look like I just had a kid, with the muffin top, saggy skin, and the clothes I've worn for a year are snug.

So I'm trying to get back on track and put myself on a Slimfast diet. 2 shakes a day and 1 meal. Snacks are fruit or veggies. I'm not doing well. I snack when I make the kids breakfast lunch and dinner. I munch when there's a bite left on their plates. I don't eat at the table anymore. I eat in secret, so no one knows my "cheating".

The truth is, I love food. The taste, the eating, the time I share with friends and family making and eating. I guess I don't know where to go from here.

Hey we are all trying to figure that out too.. hope we can support each other!

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. As we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.

Hi Holly!

Welcome to the group.

I completely identify with what you're saying. My boyfriend is completely baffled with how I will obsess about certain types of food (sweets too, or those fried onion pieces that go on top of green bean casserole, or lots of other things - good bread...).

For me, the best strategy has always been to just not have the food in the house - which is difficult when living with someone who likes to have them... but whenever I would break down (When I lived alone) and buy something "bad," as soon as I was able to let myself I would throw it out - I might do a little damage, but not as bad as eating an entire package of something bad!

Hi everyone! I'm new to this group but have been a compulsive overeater since I can remember. I will eat all the food in the house just because it's there. Especially sweets... if there are cookies or cake in the kitchen I'll obsess about them until I just go and eat what's there. It's been very discouraging and I just don't seem to have enough willpower to break out of it for very long. I'm really trying to not buy things that are bad for me and focus on eating healthy things. Looking for any support and ideas that are out there and happy to be part of your group!

it's true that we don't really need many cals at night as our bodies begin to wind down and prepare for sleep. when i want to eat, just because the food is good, yet i feel full and need to stop i tell myself: the food will still be here in 5 minutes... 1 hour... tomorrow... if i still really want more. but right now i need to stop because i am full. it somehow takes the edge off.

i have the same problem with sometimes telling myself im really full...sometimes when the foods in front of me, i just want to have more because its there...i started to cut my meals off at 7pm ..it has helped me because i used to snack at night and not on the best foods. So I have kind of trained myself to not be hungry after 7pm and then start off with a good breakfast in the morning. its hard at first but you just have to tell yourself no when youre going to the fridge or cabinets to get a snack. Another suggestion is just drinking water at night or snacking on veggies if you need to snack a little instead of ice cream and chips like my habit was. thanks for the other advice too! =)

I am having serious issues with being able to tell when i am full- especially in the evening, and very especially when i am fatigued. One night i snacked so much that i was only able to eat a bowl of cereal and
a piece of fish the next day ( not together)
any thoughts ? i am, by the way a recovering bulimic
( 9 years no purge) but i obviously still tend to binge and starve..

good to hear that you're eating healthy. keep up the good work. when we do overeat, it is the body's response to a famine... either quality or quantity. so just make sure that you are getting enough quality calories and eating whenever you are hungry, or you could easily slip into a quantity famine and not even know it. take care!

hi everyone! so i'm doing well with eating healthy and stuff but i really love food...like if i have never tried something before, I try it. I'm not one of those 'picky' eaters. It's really hard because I am trying to lose pounds and every once in a while i eat more than i should. =/ ive been keeping track of my calories, etc on sprakpeople and i love it b/c it really keeps me watching. but ahhhhh...i just don't know about that "every once in a while crave for everything at once" ..haha i figure I would join this group for some tips/motivation ....any suggestions?

I'm doing OK. I'm still kind of in the mode that if I'm not "dieting", then I'm over-eating. Not very good at listening to my body yet... But hanging in! emoticon

How have you been? Are you still craving high sugar, high processed foods? How are you dealing with that? Are you beginning to eat on demand? Are you just beginning to learn to listen to your hunger signals?

Just some questions to see how ya'll are doing!

My answers...
I've been pretty busy, hosting the FILs and doing US government stuff (like meetings) that wastes my time when I could be doing other things, like, traveling or sleeping.
I haven't really been "craving" sweets, though I have had them in the last week, so my body must have needed the fats or sugars or something.
I am just taking it one day at a time and not beating myself up over it. I have not lost in the past 3+ weeks, however, I have not gained.
I have been (trying) to eat on demand for the past month. I'd give myself an 80% for that and I have really been able to heighten my awareness to my hunger, so I'd give myself a 95% for that.
