Let the Battle Begin

I am fighting the feeding frenzy monster. I recently had a nutritious and delicious lunch. I am not actually physically hungry. I am just in the mood to graze.

It is so stupid, this mood. I don't need to eat... I am nourished and satisfied. I am not having trouble with negative self talk and I am not bored, angry or sad.


What gives?

Habit, methinks. Just stupid, bad, ingrained habit.

Nasty one, too.

Quitting smoking was easier.



  1. Erika, you are GORGEOUS!

    I'm so glad you posted these photos.

    No sooner than I decided to go on a healthy eating path, I bought a huge dessert pan of frozen brownies today. I never buy stuff like that. It was like the devil was whispering to me, Tessa, it's okay, just a little bit won't hurt. LOL. I feel for you. It's tough, though, tough.

  2. Yeah, you can say that again. I battle that devil every day. Sometimes all day, for days at a stretch. Sometimes I wonder if it wouldn't just be easier to eat myself into a coma and float away... lolol

    You are too kind. Gorgeous is the last word that would ever come to mind, looking at me. But, thank you. *hug*

    I'm so glad that you stopped by. :D

  3. Stay the course, darlin'. You CAN DO IT!!! (Water with a wedge of lime and ice cubes do well for making me feel fuller and has zero calories, zero fat, I think.)

  4. You are right. :D

    I drink a lot of water and it helps. :D

  5. I know how you feel, I get the desire to eat just for the sake of eating every so often.
