Well thr past few days I have been feeling incredibly hungry.. I am not sure why-as since my weight loss surgery almost 1 1/2 yrs ago--I am craving berad and I did conquer my addiction to bread--but i feel like it is haunting me once again..I think i am just so tired of the same foods.. And eating high protein.. I have Lactose intolerance among other gastro probs and other health issues--that one thing or another make me sick ..
Trying to eat right and exercise gets so overwhelmiong doesn't it sometimes--I have to make sure my diabetes stays under control --my BP my Chol etc etc.
Hopefully this is just a case of PMS-tho my gynnie says i moving into the Post Menapauseal stage ..Thats another story! Early Menapause..UGH--well not too early I am 46 now! Yikes
I am just feeling scared that i am gonna gain weight--I have had several plateaus- with up and down with my fluid probs from my kidneys--But I do not like this feeling at all..
Of course the Depression is trying to beat me up also..SO I can use some support and encouragement and prayer once again. I know this feeling and stage will Pass--sooner or later--but do not want to gain weight..
I also think i am eating out of Extreme Boredom sometimes..
God Bless Everyone and Have a Wonderful AUGUST!!!

    Susie ... and this too will pass. You are strong and you are beautiful. I find that if I don't deny myself anything, I am able to get past the cravings.

    Bread ... used to love it ... now, I can take it or leave it.

    Your body may be telling you it is missing an essential nutrient ... especially if you are pre-menopausal.

    We are here for you ...

    Hey SusieQ

    You have some great comments here. Just keep telling yourself, these cravings will pass and stay as strong as you can. I battle cravings everyday, I sometimes give in (I need to practice what I preach) Just remember what that bread can do to your body, and say NO! It's funny, when I get the night time munchies, I brush my teeth and use listerine - it gets rid of my cravings :) works for me.

    I will say a prayer for you to stay strong. Everyone hits a plateau every once in a while, just keep plugging away and you will see a difference.

    You CAN do this. Take it one day at a time or one minute at a time. Believe in yourself.

    Sometimes it's just a matter of hanging in there until the mood passes. It's hard, I know, when you are feeling terrible - but you just have to keep asking yourself if the food will make things better? It does momentarily - but not in the long run. Hang in there, we are all thinking about you and pulling for you!

    Changing your life habits is a daunting task, if we were born athletes we wouldn't be heavy in the first place so exercising does get boring and having to watch ever bite that goes in your mouth feels like a job but we have to do it and stick to it. The best advice I can give for the bordem is maybe join the Y or somewhere with a swimming pool and go for swims or join Curves if there is one in your area because you get your exercise and also enjoy the conversation of other women there. Anyway, I wish you all the best and just know that you will get through this, I've had my share of bad days, I haven't even got the exercise thing going yet.... so I completely understand where you are coming from. Just try to stay positive and it will get better.
