This is true. I guess since my calorie range became higher and I'm usually low on fat I've been compensating with snacks that aren't very nutritious or filling. No more Le Petit Ecolier for breakfast. Hahaha. emoticon

Thanks everyone!

I took a look at your food log and the problem may be not so much how much you are eating but what you are eating. I noticed quite a few starchy and sugary foods relatively high in calories with very little nutritional value. One of the problems with too much of those kinds of food is that they don't do much to sate your appetite. Try subtituting some foods higher in protein and fiber. I think you will find those will satisfy hunger better for the same or fewer calories.

Motivation without information is useless.

Willpower is nothing more than wishful thinking.

Discipline is practicing something until it becomes a habit.

There is a big difference between surviving and thriving.

TOM has and effect on my hunger as well as increased activity. Also what I ate the day before will affect my hunger the next day, if it's particulary lean, I wake up hungry.

If you havn't increased your intake up to your maintenance range, you may want to do that.

I have noticed the same thing as LEELYNN and TRYINGHARD60. But it could just be an off day for you.

Success consists of a series of little daily victories.

I find that when I've been in maintenance a time I start getting a bit more casual about simple carbohydrates which in turn makes me more hungry. I also found that the leaner I was the hungrier I was on the same amount of food.

I can't seem to satisfy my hunger today. I'm at 1,000 calories and it's not time even time for dinner yet! This is different for me because I'm used to being satisfied with less, but could it be that I'm adjusting to my "maintenance mode" calorie range? Once I reached goal I was excited to get to eat more, but also very nervous that I would gain once I increased my calorie intake. Did you all get hungrier when you made the switch from losing to maintaining?

(As far as activity, I haven't been working out much more than usual. I've been running about 4 miles a day 6 days a week for over a month now. Also, I've been drinking a lot of water too to be sure I'm not just dehydrated.)
