Craving Everything!

Monday, November 26, 2012

I've been craving food lately. Nothing specific, just food. I've already had my afternoon snack, so I need to wait until after dinner to determine if I have enough calories for a snack. I also have a list of things I really want to buy from Amazon. I'm craving the purchase and getting mail! But in 3 weeks I will be getting about $70 in Amazon credit, so I have to wait until then.

Resisting cravings is super tough. If I wasn't on SparkPeople, I would have eaten a bowl of Goldfish by now. If I didn't track my expenses and look up how much money I'll get for selling textbooks back, I would have bought at least one of my wish list items by now. But I do have these checks for myself and, as hard as it is, I am able to resist the cravings. And at the end of the day, I will be rewarded by a happy number of calories, a possible snack, and a happy bank account. And in a few weeks, I will be rewarded by (hopefully) a healthier body and (definitely) the satisfaction of not spending money I didn't need to.

    Good deal... in the beginning, you will probably feel hunger, especially at night. It's part of the process and if you expect it and deal with it, you'll get there.

    Hey good for you for looking at your cravings and deciding not to listen to them. You're a stronger woman than I! Holding off on spending money you don't have is the first step to financial success, so congrats on that front also.
    Sometimes I don't even really crave anything in particular, I just want to munch! And crunch! Until I'm really full!
    Not a healthy craving to listen to, and major props for not listening to that impulse.

    Happy Monday!

    I'm with you- I crave like crazy too but the Spark community keeps me accountable, too! Resisting the cravings is a huge victory! emoticon

    Please let me know what goldfish taste like. I'll bet a spoonful of sugar helps.

    I have been experiencing cravings as well. They are truly a demon.
