I struggle with it! It sometimes feels like the more I work out the MORE hungry I get. I try to get myself to drink more water instead of eating, and I’ve been trying to remove sweets. My nightly dessert this week has been pears! I need to cut the soda though….

Sometimes you slip. Those that succeed are not the ones who never fall off the wagon–since EVERYONE falls off–it’s the ones that keep getting back on. So forgive yourself and move on. Tomorrow’s a new day and a new week.

I struggle too!  Sometimes I wish I could just wire my mouth shut, LOL!  To stop my snacking while watching TV (which is my downfall), I’ve been knitting.  It keeps me from eating because my hands are busy and I don’t want to get crumbs or food on my yarn.

oh.my.gosh. like you wouldnt believe.  i work out constantly but dont lose anything because of my bad eating habits.  i always do really well for a week or so and then ruin it when it gets to the weekends.  Weekends are diet-killers.  haha

I feel this way too especially during certain times of the month. I noticed that often times when I start craving for food, I am usually thirsty rather than hungry. The next time you see that cupcake, drink a big glass of water, wait 10 minutes, then check to see if you still want it.

Another tip that helps is logging your diet and learning the total amount of calories each meal consists of. When I learn how long I will need to stay on the treadmill for that cupcake, I usually decide against it. Or else, I get on the treadmill first, then have the cupcake.

I feel your pain :(.  I’ve gained 3 pounds, and JUST finished making an amazing batch of oatmeal cookies.  Well…the dough is in the refrigerator, but please believe those things will be in the oven in about 15 more minutes after it’s done resting :). 

I’m going to do better, and a I know you will also.  Sometimes we just slip!

I have this issue too once I start eating bad it is really hard for me to stop! Some things that have helped me are like baldor1 mentioned: logging everything you eat, weather it be writing it down in a journal or some phones have apps on them which can count your calories for you! pretty nifty…. when I acctually see everything I ate that day written out I either am encouraged by it or see the areas where I need help.

I feel you.  I work out a lot and find myself ravenously hungry All The Time.  Keep a food diary.  It’s a lot easier to pass up those snacks when you see you’ve already consumed 1700 calories that day.  And log the food BEFORE you eat it so you know how many calories you’re about to shove in your mouth.

Also, try to find healthy alternatives.  I usually always have a sugar free chocolate pudding snack for dessert (with some light whipped cream.)  60 calories.  My Fiance (who, incidentally is almost sickly thin and never gains an ounce no matter how much he eats GRR!) has a massive sweet tooth.  So everytime he’s eating something bad, instead of sharing, I bust out my puddin’ cup.  Or jello.  Or a 100 calorie snack. 

And remember, just because you’ve worked out that day doesn’t mean you get cart blanche to eat whatever you want!  Burning 500 calories doesn’t negate consuming 3,000. You’re still gonna gain weight.  The gain might be a little slower, but it’s still going to happen.

Weight loss totally sucks.
