Cravings suffering, suffering cravings

The old folks used to tell us kids not to fall asleep hungry, or else your soul will find its way into a cooking pot and will be trapped there forever. I never believed it for a minute -- it was an excuse for us to eat leftover dinners.

All this trying to lose weight business is taking its toll on my cravings. It takes a lot of will power and discipline and to be honest, I don't have enough of either. I think it's because I've been using the same types of food since January, that maybe it's time to change some of them. Depriving myself of yummy, greasy and sugary foods is a lot more difficult than I initially thought it would be.

Last night before going to bed, was the culmination of my suffering. I couldn't sleep without thinking about these:

Some dreamy Eggs Benedict with Hollandaise sauce. I swear I could've dreamed this out of desire.

The glorious Full English Fry-up. The baked beans on toast... the sausages... the bacon... fried tomatoes... oh how I miss them! *sniff*




Photobucket

Bicol Express.
Pork and chilis cooked in yummy coconut milk & shrimp paste sauce. Heaven! I've already got a plan to cook this baby up this weekend. I can nearly taste the chilis in my mouth!

I guess it's better if you eat a lil amount of everything once in awhile, then be sure to exercise to burn those calories, rather than to deprive yourself and suffer from craving...

how about going regularly to the gym so you can enjoy your food without worrying too much about gaining weight?

btw, you look fine, i don't think you look fat at all, just try to pay less attention to skinnier people.

its hard to go cold turkey when it comes to dieting. one thing i tried in the past when i lost 30 pounds over the span of Lent was to give myself ONE free day a week (usually sunday) where I could eat anything i wanted. That way, if wednesday or thursday rolls around and you are craving - you can always tell yourself you have Sunday :) also, if you are going out with friends on a friday, you can use that as your free day and make sunday a regular diet day. GOOD LUCK! but i must say, you dont look like you need to be dieting!
