Do you know what foods trigger your cravings? I have never really thought about it much but I think I will start. I am begging to think breads, sweets & my most favorite pizza are trigger foods for me. Saturday night we went out to dinner for Valentines day & I had a roll then we had bruchetta and what happened? Sunday I had cravings for more bread, salty food & sweets. I ended up having a few pieces of chocolate, some chips & pizza on Sunday, ( I only had 2 pieces because I made it & it was just not all that good). I thought my cravings would be over, little did I know it would just get worse. I already told you about my pizza catastrophe on Monday, well yesterday I am just sitting here at work working away & a big craving hit me like a ton of bricks. I had my lunch so I was not hungry but all of a sudden I was like I would like some chocolate. The angel & devil on my shoulder start arguing. I am tired maybe I will skip the gym & go home & pig out. This goes back & forth for about an hour. So finally I say no you can not pig out you have to weight in tomorrow, but you really want the food. But did I really want it or is it something else? I am not sure what else it is, maybe boredom. So what did I end up doing you ask? I talked my self out of the fridge & got myself to the gym. I did 50 minutes on the elliptical, when I got in my car after the work out I said out loud to myself I am so happy I came to the gym. So my new theory of exercising to ward off cravings worked for me again yesterday. Today is weight in day & I am not expecting a big loss but I am hoping for at least a loss.
I have been on Weight Watchers for almost 3 years. I started off great I lost 60 pounds. Now I find myself slacking & losing then gaining the same 20 pounds over & over. I have had a weight problem all my life. I am going to lose the last 50 pounds this time. I will not stop till it is dropped.
