so freaking hungry



Recommended Posts

Folks. I know I come here and post every couple of days about my cravings, but I don't know what else to do. I feel like I'm going to buy a slice of pizza, take a bite and toss the rest when I'm out walking my dog.

I'm legit hungry all the time and there's no way I'm going to successfully resist temptation by just gritting my teeth. It's been constant. No relief from hunger at all. Today's day 12.

Also, when i eat cottage cheese or yogurt or some other tide me over fat free soft treat, my weight loss either stalls or goes up the next day. Called my nutritionist about it last Friday, she told me to drink one fewer Protein Shake a day so i show good numbers at my first weigh in.

Frigging losing it.

Yay!!!! So glad your NUT had some answers for you and unfortunately some people never lose the hunger sensation. Eat as close to plan as you can for the best outcome and safe journey!

Have you thought about a pizza "replacement" - bear with me. Maybe take pizza sauce and some low fat cheese, along with (very soft) vegetables and bake them? It would not be the same thing as you won't have crust, but you'll have everything else.

I posted a recipe a few days ago that I find a great replacement for pizza and other Pasta dishes. It has Ricotta, Parmesan Cheese, Mozzarella, marinara, one egg, and a few spices. You eat it with a spoon, but I look forward to it every day. If you break it down into the servings, then each one is right around 150 calories, about the same as a Protein Drink.

I was really missing my staples probably around where you're at, but now I seem to be fine without them. I can't explain it other than I suppose I wrapped my head around it finally.

When I got to soft foods I made this:

Just be careful of the toppings :)

Sounds good! Could you post another link, please? I tried to find it in your previous posts, but was unsuccessful.

Thanks!

      Thought I'd give an update.  I'm over half way to my goal, which is awesome, and I've lost over 12 inches in my waist!  The weight isn't coming off as quickly as I had hoped, but I am also not exercising and still not getting even close to the amount of water I should be drinking, so slow weight loss is not all that surprising.  Sometimes I'm just "over it" and try to eat huge portions like I used to, but, thankfully, I feel the restriction of my smaller stomach and can't go crazy.  In general, I'm quite good, just trying to live my life.
      I now have a motivation to start exercising, though... I booked a plane ticket to Germany for the end of September, so this is a good chance to get strong, get hydrated, and reach my weight goal.

      Wow looking through my own eyes I just don't see 50 lbs done.  I took the side my side picture from 4 months ago to today's and can only see some change.  I hope I can keep loosing.  I just read that the window or the honeymoon stage of weight lost is in the first 4 months after that it will slow down and you have to work even harder to keep it going.  Trying to keep positive even if it is one pound I lost in 2 weeks.

      So I had my surgery on Jan 7th. At this point I haven't eaten anything for 2 weeks am giving myself my injections. I can barely stomach the protein shakes that I am to have twice a day. I have noticed a small weight loss not as much as I thought I would have since I haven't eaten anything. I haven't started working out at the gym yet. I broke in a horrible case of hives from my incisions but have since been cleared up. I didn't really have any nausea from my surgery. I don't even feel like I had surgery. I am sure once I start eating  I will notice. To ask others. I have sleeve surgery so wondering if anyone else out there had this surgery how did you feel after. When did you start eating foods. I am nervous to start eating. I drink my 64oz plus water a day but that's about it that I am taking in other than the occasional sugar free Popsicle.

        In the beginning, I was sure that I would go straight to malnutrition hell if I missed even a dose. Turns out, it takes several weeks to months to get yourself in any substantial trouble. My excellent labwork has proven to me that it's not just okay to skip (out of laziness or accidentally) your supplements, but it probably saves you a couple of bucks here and there. Mellow out is my new mantra. Go the best you can with hydration, protein, and your recommended supplements. Trying to live a stress-free life is infinitely more important than your supplements for any given day. (None of this little blabfest was intended for the lovely and ever-knowledgable GT.)
