I hate being hungry!
Wednesday, March 23, 2016
I am a carboholic and have been having a hard time with cutting them out, I especially love potatoes. I did change my bread to wholegrains but still find it hard to limit it. I know that the starchy foods fill me up so that I am not scavenging or hungry for a long time. While following a diet rich in protein and produce I am ALWAYS hungry. I don't know how many times I have said "forget it" but then I get back on the wagon and keep on trekking along. I've lost 22 pounds since the first of December, but I've been hungry the whole time. I hate being hungry! Not only does my stomach growl ALL the time, I am also cranky and exhausted. You know those Snickers commercials where they give someone a Snickers because they are cranky? That's me, all the time. This being unhappy, even passive when I lose weight, is really getting to me. It sure isn't conducive to conversations with anyone so work has become more of a burden. My kids hate it when I snap at them (and they are in their 30s). Sometimes I just want to eat 3 or 4 pieces of toast, some with butter, some with peanut butter. I'm good with the water/liquids intake. I've been able to curb my chocolate cravings, and my Coke (pop, not drugs) addiction.
I just want some frickin' potatoes, and bread, and pasta! I want more than Spark suggests. I honestly do not like many veggies or fruits. I prefer fruit in juice form. I could drink juice all day, no problem, as long as there is no pomegranate in it. I do like green beans, carrots and corn. That's pretty much it. Once in while cauliflower (but not as substitutes for potatoes) and broccoli (as long as it's cooked). I want lasagna, and spaghetti. I want birthday cake, and donuts. Yeah, I know those last few are not healthy but damn, I am hungry!
