So, a major premise here is that I am always hungry – I live my life in a constant state of hunger.
The goal is just to keep it under control – a low level hum in the background. Well, lately, the hunger, it has been assertive. I think about food. I dream about food. I obsess about food.
This, of course, makes it hard to focus – at work or at home. I get irritable. I get cranky. Even I don’t like me.
And then I start making bad choices. Like eating dangerous food …
Or just simply disregarding portion sizes.
And lord help us all if you set something edible down in front of me.
I try to eat the things that are supposed to make this better – I have protein, I have fruits and vegetables to get fiber, I eat all of my WW points for the day, and yet I still can’t get it under control.
Maybe I just need to get busier – maybe it is boredom.
Regardless, I’ve got to figure it out, because, yikes, this is getting crazy.
Three miles this morning – maybe I just need to work harder to earn the few extra calories.
Any big ideas, let me know. I’m open to all suggestions for appetite suppression at this point.
