Good Morning Sparkpeople

Wednesday, April 20, 2011

I am really getting a lot of good information from that new TV show Addicted to Food....if you feel you have food issues you might check it out.....it will not be for everyone....last nights show sure hit a few raw nerves with me......I like to re watch it again during the week when I have time to digest what I saw....then each time I pick up a few new things as well, one thing I have learned is that turning to food can be a complicated issue, and that I am not weak or bad for doing this.....and I am not alone, I also learned that you don't have to be overweight to have these food issues, they can be hidden in other ways as well...

So a silly thing happened to me, last night I was hungry and told myself I had eaten enough, I checked my food tracker to be sure and sure enough my total calories was where it should be, I always try to stay at the low end....and this morning I am so very hungry again.....gee I think, why am I so hungry....I start to fill in today's food and go back to use my lunch from yesterday and see where I added my afternoon snack twice adding over an extra 100 calories that I did not eat , not a huge deal but I sure do feel it in the hunger department.....I'm thinking this is a good thing that I can feel hunger when in fact I am hungry......I also feel good that I can control myself with the positive self thought of "you have eaten enough " and I did not go and still eat just because I was hungry......I have learned that being hungry is not the end of the world and I will survive until the next meal......I use to be scared of being hungry as it would lead to me over eating the next day or so.....so good lessons seem to be coming to me.....see what 5 years can do for a person if you want them too..

Have a blessed day......for me it's Holy week and starting with tonight's dinner fish, I need to back and change my dinner, it has chicken on there but I'm having baked fish.....I love fish

    I am hoping the show will be repeated --it was on and I was watching Jamie Oliver and BL at the same time.

    I love what you have learned,Kitt, thanks for all your great blogs, you keep me coming back for more.

    You're right -- hunger is not a bad thing for those of losing weight. It is a very sad fact of life for people who are literally starving elsewhere in the work, but not in our land of gluttony. Good for you sticking with the fact and not giving in to the emotional side of eating!

    Happy Holy Week to you, Kitt!
