I think I'm going crazy today!

UGGG! Crazy day! I am SO hungry today, but I want to eat all the WRONG things, so I haven't eaten hardly at all!  I want ooey, gooey macaroni and cheese. I know that is a big No-no for bandsters. I want soft, chewy garlic bread with cheese. Another no-no. I want caramel something.  I skipped breakfast today because nothing sounded good except for stuff I can't have. Biscuits and gravy sounds awesome, but I know I can't do it, so I just didn't eat. I did do a good lunch, my calories are only at a little over 200 for the day. I'm just in a bad mood and I'm not sure why. I've been doing so good, but today is just nuts! I did the Wii for a while thinking that exercise will improve my mood. NOPE!  How does everyone pull themselves out of a wicked funk? I think I could eat the butthole out of skunk today if it was slathered in caramel and chocolate. Ok, not really but, Damn, I'm hungry. I have a fill on Tuesday. It will be my second one. Can I ask for a BIG one because I can't even tell there is anything there! OK, enough ranting I need to take the kiddos out and get some fresh air, maybe that would do some good!


  1. I would eat something you don't want to end up starving and then eat to much too fast. I would try to satisfy some of your craving with something healthy maybe a carmel protein shake. Also make sure you are taking your vitamins...when I crave chocolate I am usually low in magnesium

    1. Low in magnesium makes you crave chocolate?? I'll be damned! I'm really bad at taking my vitamins. I will try to be more diligent about taking them! Where do you get your stuff for the protien shakes? Carmel sounds yummy! Thanks for the tips girls!

  2. I always try and drink at least 20oz of water when I feel like this, then if I still want...
    I say feed the beast. Don't go crazy, just eat something that sounds good and eat a bandster portion of it. Others out there may disagree with me, but this is how I roll! :)
    Chin up! We all have these days! Weekends are the hardest for me! I just think I should be able to eat whatever I want.

  3. Hey there! YOu are doing great!! I saw the post before this one said you were close to the 50 lbs mark. That is so exciting! I'm really happy for you. I can definitely relate to being hungry and craving . I bet it will be a lot better when you get your fill. I didn't have that surgery but my brother did and he's lost 250 lbs with the band . He said it is a bit like a science of getting it to the right restriction but once you do it's great. I definitely have my moods and they take me on some wild rides. I pretty much cannot handle white flour and sugar. They will send me the roof craving. I have to stay under 30 grams of carbs a day and eat nothing with more than 4 grams of sugar. I wish I wasn't like that but it's the only thing that keeps me from eating all the chocolate that exists!! Good luck on your continued journey!
