Giving Into Munchies

Thursday, February 27, 2014

I have been on Optifast since October and I should have reached my goal weight by now but I cheated along the way. I do fine during the day but in the evenings I get terrible cravings for something to sink my teeth into. I know I need to learn to overcome these cravings. I am going to try journaling and visualizations of myself at goal weight. I will blog later to let you all know if it works.

    I used to have cucumbers and grape tomatoes just for the chewing.

    I am on the Every Other Day Diet where you eat 500 calories every other day and what ever you want the next day. Some days it is hard not to cheat but I have lost 9 pounds since starting in Jan. I find that when I want to eat chewing sugar free gum helps, brushing my teeth helps and of course drinking black coffee or water. On a diet day today and just took a cold bottle of water from the frig to drink. There is a Spark team about the diet if you want to learn more.

    Don't you hate the cravings! I wish I craved things like broccoli or celery ; )
    Try keeping fresh fruit on hand or little fruit cuts (no sugar added). It's not chips or chocolate, but it does satisfy a little. Don't give up! Just keep tracking what you eat, drink that water and keep pushing. emoticon Eileen Hopeful Hearts
