I'm tired...............

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

This is more of an online vent than anything. I am so tired..........of being hungry all the time. It is awful to eat all the right stuff and be so hungry. I am not talking about emotional eating or eating in front of the TV. I am talking about true hunger. I track what I eat everyday faithfully. One day a week I am just so hungry that I eat everything in sight until I'm full. I am at my wits end. I wake up hungry. I go to bed hungry. I even wake up in the middle of the night the hunger is so bad. I have been having headaches, dizziness, and general not feeling well. I work in a doctors office. I have my doctor check my BP everyday and its great. I no longer need my BP meds, But they are not my PCP and do not offer any advice except to go to my PCP or RD.

I have tried so many things to stay full it¡¦s not funny. Then I have guilt that I didn¡¦t stay on my diet and lack the will power to force myself to stick to my goals. My weight has been the same for 3 weeks but I can fit into some clothes that I was not able to get into in years. I know that even though my scale is not moving that I am making progress. I have listened to many of friends and sparkpeople suggestions. Why is it not working to control my hunger? I have tried exercising but then I¡¦m hungrier than I was to start with. I drink tons of water. Just ask the toilet. It has respectful asked that I stop drinking so much ƒº I have added fiber capsules to my diet. I eat fresh fruits and veggies as snacks. My doctor and RD tell me to just stick to the calories 1400-1600 per day and it will get better. It¡¦s been 2.5 months. My appetite has not decreased. However I do not eat as much at one sitting. I try to eat smaller meals more frequently and it did not help in the least. So I ask my fellow spark people, what do you do to control your hunger? Any suggestions at this point are helpful.

    Hey Brandi - Hang in there! You said you have tried more frequent meals, but are you combining a complex carb in there with some of your fruits and veggies? That is what helps me to feel full. Fruits and veggies alone don't do it for me... Good luck!

    PS Love your Eeyore background!
