Hunger Strikes

Today is a really hard day and I just need to vent. I want to eat everything in site and I am having trouble handling it. This weekend has been okay, both Friday and Saturday were high(er) calorie days, but I worked out and it was nothing out of control. Today though, I just woke up and WANT TO EAT.

We went to breakfast at a local joint the boy loves, and I got my usual veggie benedict. I was hungry but since that is a really high calorie dish I tried to exercise portion control so I only ate a little more than half and a few of the potatoes, so that was a success. Aside from a few errands, we've been home pretty much all afternoon watching football (HOLY COW BRONCOS, that was close) and it has been a constant battle to stop myself from going into the kitchen. I had some olives. Then I had some strawberries. Then I had some crackers and hummus. And a pice of cheese. Aaahh!

Maybe it's my period coming, or maybe my body is just fighting this weight loss thing but I am hungry! It's only 5, but I think I just need to make a big, healthy meal for dinner and be done with it. Nom nom nom.

Ugh. I HATE that feeling. It happened to me for a few days last week and it was so FRUSTRATING. I just wanted to eat and eat and eat. No idea why. Stupid band is supposed to prevent that! I can't wait until I get to full restriction.

One thing I liked about WW Core (er, when I was on it, long long ago) is that on Hungry Days I could EEEEEEEEAT. I'd eat a whole batch of popcorn, and half a bag of baby carrots, and a piece of leftover chicken, and two bowls of soup, and NOM NOM NOM.
