Dying right now. Very close to hitting a new number, and I already ate enough today because I had some higher calorie items. But, it was not enough food volume of course. So to pass the time, I wrote a comment in the forums of a list of international dishes that are healthy and delicious. Which DID pass time. And for a while was fun! Until I finished it, and then realized I am frigging starving! :)
I refuse to prolong this weight loss a day longer than it's been going, because I am sooo sick of eating at a deficit for 3 years in a row!! I just want to get to my ideal weight already, so this can stop sucking up so much of my time and energy, and I'm not always tired from calorie deficit.
So, to that aim, I'm not going to snack. Because if I do, it will push hitting the goal back at least a day. Right now, I'm on track to hit it by Jan. And really, that day can not possibly come too soon. But ordinarily, I could push the cravings back with some tea, water, peppermint gum, a piece of fruit, or a little vegetable soup. Eating solids like almonds when I'm hungry, just makes it that much harder not to eat more.
Wish me strength! I suspect this is one of those nights that I will toss and turn, and when I finally fall asleep dream only of foods. I hope not though! Good sleep is the best thing for weight loss, which kind of goes hand in hand with low stress - neither of which I am great at.
I ate the same amount yesterday and fell perfectly fine. But that's how it goes. May be a hormonal thing. Sometimes I just desperately need more, and sometimes I have no appetite at all all day. No warning which type of day it will be. I hope tomorrow isn't so painful.
