Food cravings are a weird thing. Last week I really wanted broccoli of all things. I eat a ton of veggies and broccoli is a staple for me. But must be something that broccoli has in it was missing from my diet because I just wanted a plateful. Which I indulged in.
Unfortunately, my cravings are rarely for something healthy like that!
I crave sweets WAY more now then I did when I was fat. At the time I would knock down a DOOR for things like bread covered in butter, but chocolate? Nah. I probably ate 2 candy bars a year.
But now I crave sweets a LOT. It is difficult to manage sometimes.
This week though, I've had a bizarre craving - I want PROCESSED foods.
I literally have not eaten an Oreo cookie in probably 3 years. But I could sit down and eat through a bag right now.
It's not even specifically the sweet taste I'm after - I am totally fantasizing about things like Little Debbie snacks and those terrible packaged cake things. How weird is that?
The scale ignored my plea for mercy yesterday - I weighed in this morning at a dismal 127.1. I keep reminding myself of that. But Fat Jen doesn't give a flying fuck right now - she just wants some crap in her PLEASEANDTHAANKYOU!
She will, instead, get haddock and a pumpkin/sweet potato bisque for dinner tonight.
I hope that will shut her up!
