Have you ever been so hungry?

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Week 2 on Jenny Craig. Going well and the biggest achievment of all is steady sugars and NO INSULIN before my meals. I am still on my night time shot and my oral meds, but hey how much can a girl ask for in 1 week, I still can't beleive it. Any way, I was so hungry yesterday. My program is basically 1200 calories. But that's basically, somedays it's 1100 something, somedays it might 1300. Yesterday was actually a 1300 day and I was hungry really hungry. I must say that I've over eaten for so long, that I can't honestly I know the difference between being full and being stuffed. Because for me they have always been the same. I am trying so hard to learn about my body, to understand what it really feels like to be hungary. Am I bored? Am I just used to having somethng in my hands? Am I just used to that process of always eating. I know this is something that I will need to work on over a period of time. So yesterday, I tracked my food, I ate everything I was supposed and finally at 8:30 I was so hungry I just went to bed. I so didn't want to go off my program. What's strange is, I looked back on other days, when I had much less calorie wise but didn't feel so hungry. Maybe it's just my body. So last night before I hit the bed early in attempt night to derail myself, I tried to convince myself. That I had more than enough to eat and shouldn't be hungry. But bottom line, it is what it is. I was just hungry, not starving but hungry. Not that kind of if I don't eat right this second I will be sucking paing off the walls hungry, but just this strange little feeling in my tummy. A new day has begun and I'm feeling good. I've had my breafast my day is packed and ready to go and onward to conquer another day.

    I am at the end of week 2 as well. I am not doing jenny craig just watching what I eat and portion sizes. I can tell you I was FREAKING STARVING the first week but it has tapered off a lot this week. A handful of raw nuts helps when it gets really bad and drink, drink, drink your water. That is what s saving me. And I just want to add that on the first week I was so hungry at night ( my usual snacky time) that I too when to bed super early just to keep from feeling so hungry and to keep from cheating.

    I do have some hungrier days than others. Not sure why that is but I try to talk myself through it and drinking water helps. I think it was great that you just went to sleep (everybody can use some extra of this) and avoided temptation. You are learning new behaviors and I am proud that you worked through it instead of giving in to the mindless consuming. I won't deny it I have given into the hunger from time-to-time but use how I feel as a learned lesson and know that one error does not take away my hard work of where I am now. We have to get rid of the all-or-nothing mentality. I just recently placed a picture of me at 270 pounds on the fridge and I look like a lady wearing a fat suit...I know I do not want to feel or look that way ever again. I find this an awesome visual reminder. Kudos to you and have a super healthy day!
