My dead (EDIT: after a couple of smart ass remarks from my dear buddies sk1nny and posterchild, I should probably point out that HCB in fact is NOT dead, and that this is simply a missspell. Should obviously be "dear". I found this to be too funny to simply delete and correct, so I'll let it sit) buddy HCB posted this in her journal today. I thought this was SO AWESOME that I needed to share it here in the forum:



Once we learn to know the difference, it becomes a lot easier to ignore emotional hunger. For me, it is often enough to simply tell me that it's just emotional hunger, and that I should find out what it is that I really need to fix - or I am able to simply push it to the side and ignore it.

I hope it helps you guys too.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

I agree to some extent, except that when I have really bad sugar cravings it is really tough postpone or eliminating them. I found an easier strategy to give in and make an allowance in my week for them before or more often after I satisfied my cravings.
It is not ideal because clearly having to still deal with cravings relatively often is a sign of bad food/emotional habits, but at least it is a way of managing them without sabotaging the fat loss effort

lol... yeah, I just saw that. Well, it's such a shame to correct the original post isn't it? Very Happy That would make your smart ass comments pointless for future readers... or maybe I just just do a little correction to make it work still. HAHAHAHAHA...

As far as I know, HCB is alive and well.

YES - I am here! Alive, well and "butt-kicking" everyone!
If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

I think I get boredom-hunger. And commercials showing tasty, sodium filled processed foods surely don't help in the least bit. Back from the dead, H? Glad to see it!

Stay the course, stay on point, stay motivated, dedicated, and you won't be stopped. Discipline. Perseverance. Focus. Dig deep and you will be victorious.

Hahaha - I don't know how I missed the dead buddy mistake! Smile Personally, I get every kind of hunger. Emotional hunger, boredom hunger, real hunger, and habit hunger. I think sometimes we get into a rut of having a snack at the same time or the same place every day, and then your body just feels like it has to have it, just because it's a habit.

There will come a day when you can no longer do this. Today is not that day.

Urgh! I am frequently, which has sadly increased during the past few months, attacked by boredom hunger, I'm feeling a bit chilly so I need to eat hunger, others are eating hunger, and the it's time I should feel hungry hunger. I probably am attacked by the I'm thirsty but don't know hunger too but I don't know about it.

Problem is that satiating this hunger with processed foods does not satiate it. Just makes me fell more hungry and yes extremely guilty.
