Junk food and me

Thursday, March 03, 2011

Well here I am, don't know what to do here but say that I am tired of being overweight. Or obese as this site said I was according to my BMI. I crave food, mostly junk food. I am addicted to it. I think about sweets and junk food all the time. I hate driving because it seems like everywhere I go there is a fast food restaurant close by that I know I can find something there that I like. I swear I had a panic attack today because I was trying to tell myself I did not need anything to eat right at that moment. I badly wanted ice cream leftover from my son's birthday party but Lord knows I don't need it. I tried talking myself out of it. I resorted to hard candy. I am a snacker, the more the merrier. I love food. I ate a huge dinner tonight. Biscuits and gravy. Some biscuits I put butter and strawberry jelly in- no gravy. Yesterday I thought I was gonna try to eat right. I stopped by McDonald’s- now I am the big mac queen- I love me some big macs. But I chose wisely (sorta) I got a crispy chicken wrap and a small fry. But I got a large coke (my absolute favorite drink and thing I would rather die than go without) I was gonna get me and my stepdaughter an ice cream cone afterwards but their ice cream machine was not working so we left and went to Sonic. Where I got a large chocolate shake instead….. Oh well I should have gotten the big mac now…..

    Okay, so you like junk, well, I am here because there was something not the way it should be, cause I am not on maintenance. I found that it takes some work, and sometime, small steps, one a time. Maybe you should start moving, walking with your children, and then see how you feel. You will notice some a change in your energy levels and also your clothes will be looser.

    Here is some suggestions that might help you, you know you have to be willing to change.

    1. Blog, when it is great and when it is not great, there is someone here, many who have walked this same road. Don't stop talking.

    2. Use the Trackers, record everything, I mean everything - if you bite it, write it, if you exercise, write it.

    3. Join teams, make friends and participate

    4. Use the exercise videos here, they are free

    5. If you can, use the recipes

    6. My own thing is - if you can add more greens to your diet and it works, it will cut cravings

    7. Believe in you!! I do!!!

    I am addicted to Junk Food as well. The more we eat it, the more we crave it. I often struggle with my mind saying not to eat this or that...it's hard.

    Try to go a day without sugar (especially that mmmmmm good pop). Then try 2 days in a row and so on. I try to have one pop a week and was doing really good, but last week I had some everyday. I only have diet pop but it's worse. It goes straight to the midsection (my major trouble zone). Diet pop makes you crave more sugar and so on!

    Good luck! It's a hard battle. I say it must be just as hard to stop smoking (never been a smoker).

    What saves me is Fiber 1 chocolate bars. It's only 140 cals and kicks my sugar cravings to the curb!
