Cravings & Crack ...

Saturday, September 24, 2011

It blows my mind how cravings for food resembles (to me) that of crack. Watching tv and a commercial comes on and I think OMG !! I can taste it. How do you control your mind to shut that out ?? How do I get past the urge to jump in my car and go to the corner store for a bag of chips that I will eat quicker than the effort it took me to go get them. My solution in the past was to just buy 2 or 3 to make it worth my while lol !! But I do want something different in my life. I can picture myself in the goal I'm setting. Sometimes that doesn't seem good enough though. I think people who don't eat sugar are amazing. When my sweat crystalizes I assume it's either the salt or sugar going back to it solid form (j/k emoticon ) Is it REALLY possible to have some in moderation and not go crazy ??

    I'm right there with on the cravings. I made a mistake going to buy a pack of cigs (which I am not suppose to have) and as soon as I wakled in the store the ice cream sandwiches jumped out at me. My weaker side bought one. I loved it but, as you said when it's gone you feel like crap. What I did was to exercise. I reied the walking tape I had but I couldn't even do a mile so I went and rode my recumbent bike. I think we have to compensate for our giving in sometimes. As long as it's not everyday(which is what got us fat in the first place) we'll be alright. I've learned not to blow the whole day on one slip. You hang in there. We've got each other's backs. emoticon

    I know what you mean! I was watching a commercial for a burger the other day and I could just TASTE it through the screen. SOOOoo tempting and the food advertisements are EVERYWHERE! Billboards, TV, magazines, radio, etc.

    I think it is possible to have some in moderation as long as you account for the calories in everything you eat and keep to your goals. The biggest help for me was actually looking up the calories in a "Large #4 with cheese" or what ever my usual was. I was shocked! Now that I'm trying to watch my caloric intake I'm almost disgusted at what I was just mindlessly eating back then.

    I'm also really stubborn and I tell myself that after all of the days I did eat right and all of the hard work outs I've done, I've worked too dang hard for me to just slip up and eat some fast food because it tastes good!

    I hope you find your motivation and I hope you stay on track!
