WOW! What a great bunch of people you are! When I posted this I didn’t really expect that anybody would respond but hoped someone might share some ideas. Thank you very much. My cravings are not physical for sure. Often times I know that I am not hungry. What is difficult for me is that many times I can not even discern what I am craving and those are the worst times. I generally will eat many things until I come across what ever it might have been that lets me stop. I’m wondering if this isn’t behavior oriented. The only time I really have trouble is night time. After the family has gone to bed, I’m a bit of an insomniac, I lose control. I can adhere to my diet perfectly all day long and once I am alone I start sneaking food. Maybe worst about this habit is that I don’t record it in my food log. I assume I do this thinking if I didn’t record it I didn’t really eat it. I’ve tried for years to figure if there is something emotional that causes my obesity and continually come up with nothing. I had a great childhood, wonderful parents, loyal friends and got along well at school. I’m just ashamed of my “food sneaking” and need to get a handle on it. My diet has worked, I imagine, as well as it has because of how well I adhere to my diet during the daytime. I know I could do so much better if I could just get that late-night TV munchie thing under control.

What is that that causes me to eat something even when I am telling myself not to eat it? If only the mental gymnastics I perform in justifying eating "just a little something" when I know I shouldn't were physical I would never have a weight problem. I think many of us have been there before. Full of good intentions and will power only to have some craving creep ever so slowly into the back of our minds. At times I feel powerless to the point that I even tell myself "if I can just win "this time" I will have the strength I need next time." And then I proceed to pop whatever it was I was craving into my mouth and say I will do better tomorrow. WHAT IS THAT?

too upset with my weight
Fat doesn't turn into muscle. Fat and muscle are different. Are you drinking enough water? Try increasing your water, it will fill you up. Good luck! Jen
