Bottomless pit....

Oh my goodness... The last week or so I've been STARVING! Usually this only happens for a day or two at a time, and I associate it with a growth spurt from baby. I guess the home stretch is kinda like one big growth spurt though. I think I read baby gains a half pound per week??

Anyways... I've been trying to make healthier choices since I can't seem to stop eating. So far today (since 2:00pm, I didn't have breakfast bc I had a presentation I was nervous about and couldn't eat until I got home from school) I've had a spinach/bacon salad, 1.5 pounds of watermelon, half pound of italian pasta salad, and now I'm polishing off a pound of strawberries.

WTF is wrong with me! WHERE does it all go? Normally I can only eat a few bites of something and it starts backing up. Has anyone else been starving, or is it just me!?!?

Omg I can totally relate. I have been eating like a maniac lately. I fear the scale since I cannot seem to stop myself.

At least you are making smart food choices. I have been eating crap like ice cream sandwiches. Right now I am eating carrots while I make dinner so I guess sometimes I make good choices Smile

LOL-- Yum!

I feel like I get full more quickly these days-- but I still have to eat small meals frequently and lots of protein. I'm certainly hungrier on the days that I workout (like today!)

Enjoy! Just a few more weeks......so long as that eating doesn't give you heartburn. Wink I've been dealing with HB lately. Ick.

I too have nasty heartburn and so have been eating less and less. And no more desserts or meals after 5 PM. Otherwise I wake up in agony in the middle of the night with heartburn.

I actually just realized today that my heartburn (that I was getting on a daily basis for a few weeks) has disappeared. Super weird! I am feeling hungrier lately, and then tend to pick all afternoon. Boo! At least you're making healthy food choices! I ate iced oatmeal cookies this afternoon when I was starving. Wink I am afraid to get weighed at my appointment tomorrow!

I really just want sugar. Not good. Oh and also still ice. But mostly sugar. Sigh.

It's a very good thing that 7 Elevens around here don't have drive-thrus. All I can think about are Coke Slurpees. But it's inconvenient to park, unload my 2.5yr old, get a self-serve Slurpee while trying to prevent her from running away (or too much work to take out the umbrella stroller for a 3 min trip lol) and then pay, and load her back up.

In the end, my laziness wins out over my craving. Biggrin

My heartburn is so severe that I find myself avoiding eating. I try not to eat after 6PM or I'm up most of the night. No fun!

However...now I want italian pasta since it was mentioned above...and watermelon!

Acid reflux. Sad Though not stopping me from eating huge amounts. Hubby got mad at me for eating all the cheese in the fridge one day (he bought .5 lb of brie for his dinner and came home to it gone!!!! lol) and for eating all the grapes. Fruit and Cheese.....I cant get enough!!!!!

There are definitely things I am not eating for this same reason. When I want something easy (drive through) I officially have only one option- Taco Bell, because all other fast food that I could eat (Panera, Subway or any other sandwich, Chipotle or any of the other mexican ones, etc...) you have to go inside for!
