Welcome back, cravings!

Friday, April 06, 2012

Since I got my head on straight, got serious about watching what I eat, cravings have all but vanished. It's seemed remarkably easy to say "I don't eat that" or "I don't drink that" and move on.

But today was harder.

The other day, at the grocery store, they had ready to bake stuffed mushrooms...with ritz cracker and seafood stuffing. They looked so good, but I know that if I get them, I will want to polish them all off. And at 100 calories each, that's a I just said no and didn't really think about them. Until tonight, when I couldn't get them out of my head.

It was a hungry kind of morning, so I was low on calories by evening. Not having other plans, I took myself to the movies. And the POPCORN...the smell.....

And even though I didn't get anything (and haven't craved popcorn when I go to the movies in a while) I sat in the theater wondering if that's a food I will ever be able to eat again.

And who knows, maybe next time I go I will be smarter and not as hungry and it won't even tempt me.

But today I was tempted. I resisted. It's all good.

    I know what you mean about most of the time walking past without even thinking about it. For me, shopping Saturday the thing that nearly snagged me was the smell of peppermint patties. I do like them, but not enough that I'd normally crave them, but it was all I could think about for a few aisles - whether I could fit them into a few days. Ultimately I opted not to this week.

    When I go to the movies, I make an individual 100 calorie bag at home and stick it in my purse. But great job!

    Good For You! I know for myself that once those cravings hit it takes a lot to keep your mind off of food.
