The bag of Twizzlers

*warning* not a postive blog*warning*

So yesterday I went to the second cookout of the week. I had a little bit of everything one because I was hungry and two because it was good. I didn't eat the bread on the hamburger and I ate very little potatoe salad. For desert I was going to have a little piece of cake but I didn't like it so I had a cookie. Then I came home two or three hours later and was hungry. I wanted a milk shake. Instead I got the bag of twizzlers and finished it off.
No it was not a good feeling but I'm tired of being hungry all the time. Atleast twice a day I'm hungry. I make good choice and are full when I eat but it only last three hours and I need to eat again. I can't eat at work all the time. It seems like my life has to revolver around this diet... yes I said diet,,, for it to work. I have to buy the more expensive groceries, which have taken a toll on our overall finances. I also have to be careful when I go out which I have another get together tonight. I've been to the gym atleast three time a week,. I had 1300 fitness minutes last month thats more than most. The bottom line is I'm still not loosing weight.,

SO I know yesterday was postive and the scale just now said I lost weight but I can't do it any more. I can't stress and worry and always be about what I eat and when can I work out. My life has to go on. I'm done for now. I've done good and I've had a good run. I know given a couple months I'll come back but not now.

    I'm so sorry you feel this way. I just read your last two blogs and I think you mentioned some reasons why you are so hungry. If you eat some more protein and fiber and less sugar I think you would b a lot less hungry all the time. Also, your calorie range may be set too low if you are exercising so much. You can adjust this on your fitness tracker. I hope you change your mind and try to stick this out. There are lots of people here who understand what you are going through and would love to help the best we can. If you do decide to stop please keep being kind to yourself and try to keep up with the new healthy habits that you are comfortable with. Try reading all your blogs and your reasons for losing weight in the first place. If you stick around or come back later please keep in touch. emoticon

    I'm sorry you feel so down! Here's the thing though - you said that your life has to revolve around this diet in order for it to work. That's totally true. It's not a diet, it's a life change. I think you know that. If you feel deprived, like you have been, then the mental anguish will win and you will eat the entire bag of twizzlers.

    Do yourself a favor and read your previous positive blogs to remember why you were so excited about doing this in the first place!

    Try not to give up. I know the financial strain of buying the fresh groceries can be hard. However, cookies and candy cost a fortune too! Try getting frozen store brand veggies - I use them all the time and they are just as good as the national brands and have a much lower price. Buy meat in bulk and then divide it up at home and freeze in smaller size packages.
    Even if you leave SP, don't give up. You are worth more than that! emoticon

    I'm sorry your so discouraged CASTLELOVER. Its sounds to me like you need to adjust your plan. As you work out to get that cute butt you were so excited about on the last blog, you are going to be hungry more often and that's normal. this process is about finding the food/workout balance that you can live with. Nobody should be hungry all the time. maybe you could choose some foods that are higher in protein and fiber bit still within your calorie range to stay full. I know its frustrating, but instead of quitting why don't you make some adjustments? If you you cant do this now, then when? life is always going to be complicated and if you wait for things to calm down before taking care of yourself, you will never lose weight. I urge you to re-think you plan. may find a snack you can have twice a day (I personally cut luna bars in half for a high protein 100 calorie snack). There are ways around this problem and I know you can do it!
