Can't stop eating!!


I'm finding today quite tough, possibly because I'm not working, trying to keep as busy as possible but getting really strong cravings over the last few evenings and this afternoon.

Also can't stop eating! Don't know if it's the hand to mouth thing but I've tried to keep (most) of the snacks healthy but feel I deserve chocolate for doing so well! But having been on the scales, I'm realising this is catching up with me :( Never mind I'll deal with that later, but in the meantime I still really want a cigarette!!!!

Eurgh this is hard!!!

Same here

... am eating like a woman possessed, almost constantly! I think you are right and it's a hand to mouth thing, but I wish it would stop, clothes are getting tighter already.

Think it's best to focus on one thing at a time though - must just alternate the chocs and mini cheddars with carrot sticks from time to time...
