I Could Scream

Sometimes, I get so tired of thinking about, worrying about, analyzing and preparing food that I just want to scream.

One of the best parts of overeating is that you don't have to think about what you eat. You want it, you just eat it. No muss, no fuss.

I'm not giving up, but I'm frankly tired of cooking, measuring, weighing, counting and recording. It takes so much energy and time.

I can totally relate. It sucks sometimes! I can't wait for the day I meet goal and start eating to maintain rather than lose. And of course I miss the ease of eating unlimited amounts of food. But I definitely don't miss the weight I've lost since I quit doing that! :)

Stay strong! Stick to it - you'll be glad you did!

Hi, Carissa, and thanks for your kind and supportive comment. :-)

I'm not really so fussed about the reduction in calories anymore (but boy was it hard at first!)...though it is a struggle at times. I have a feeling that the being careful and counting part is going to be a lifetime thing because I may not be one of those people with a good sense of when to stop. Of course, time will tell. With years ahead to get used to things, I may yet develop a good sense of how much is just enough. ;-)

I am so curious where you stand on this subject but I am being patient and reading in chronological order. I believe that at this point, I've been doing this about as long as you had at the time you wrote this post, appx. 8 mos.
As you said in your comment, I fully expect that I will continue this way the rest of my life. Even the calories will probably be pretty similar, if not even slightly lower. I have to say that I have found my peace with it. I hope you have too, since I do understand, from you and others (like Lyn), about diet fatigue.
For me it is slightly less complicated because I enjoy such few things, I tend to eat the same things over and over again. I've always been that way and most likely always will. I imagine that cooking all the time, especially new things that contain a variety of ingredients would be overwhelming for me too.

There has been an evolution along this front for me. You'll see that as you get closer to the present. The experiment keeps changing so that I can adapt to my psychological needs. So far, so good. :-)

That is SO nice to know!
