Have you ever made a decision even though you know better??? Yeah that's me today. I finally got all my dental work done yesterday emoticon which meant I ate hardly anything besides breakfast. Then PMS is here in full force ( the MONSTER)

So what does that mean- I want to devour EVERYTHING!!! emoticon It seems like all the "sometime" food cravings are turning into EAT ME NOW screams in my head.

Started this morning with a coffee roll emoticon from Dunkin Doughnuts! It is almost time for lunch and my cravings are ranging from a corned beef special, jerk chicken, or onion rings! OMG this is crazy

So I am struggling with 2 parts of me
#1- Giving in today- I could just eat what I want today. I am so close to my goal weight that giving in today would not send me into a spiral of eating. I am not eating to stiffle my emotions. Emotionally I am in a good place emoticon So this is not about emotional eating. I just WANT it! Once I get it I can just add some extra workout time to burn the calories and get back on track with my food intake.


#2 Fight it- I have come so far. I am so close to where I want to be. Why tempt fate and a possible weight gain with a binge today emoticon I know what to eat so it it. I mean I just need to no longer be hungry right?? Not indulge in some high fat food frenzy

I have not made a decision about the rest of the day but whatever I decide I will NOT beat myself up about it or REGRET it. This is life and I need to start learning how to manage it on a daily basis in order to keep my weight steady for the long haul.

    emoticon Just keep making one choice at a time and don't beat yourself up. If you give in for one meal today it doesn't mean that the whole day is lost. You have several choices to make throughout the day so just know that you can always turn it around. emoticon

    I gave in to my hunger monster Wednesday and all it did for me was give me a giant stomachache!!! Hang in there and don't give in but if you do just eat a little and see if it is really worth it. Better yet put it in your tracker before you eat it and then you can see if you want all those extra calories and fat in your nice healthy body. emoticon emoticon

    I am SO there with you! Today is the worst as far as cravings go.

    Mine are mostly sweet cravings so I've been chewing gum & eating frozen mini marshmallows (chocolate mint flavor) between meals. Less fat & cals than real chocolate, & freezing them makes them more chewy, so they feel more substantial in my mouth.

    Stay strong!

    I feel you on the PMS thing.... It definitely not easy.... For me I HAVE to eat something, and zero regrets included lol..... And you've got stellar mindset- it's a marathon, not a quick dash. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
