the battle of the belly

i don’t know what is wrong with me..but i have been soooo hungry these past couple of weeks.
i am talking famished.

i am not over eating or anything, at least i have that in check…
but my body is restless.
my belly wants food all the time.

this has happened on more than one occasion, but i was laying in bed last tummy began to talk back.
i mean loud grumbling that woke up my puppy and put her in protective mode.
yes that’s right…she started growling back at my belly.
there i was laying in bed laughing at myself.  good times 🙂

i have woken up in the middle of the night…half asleep i raid the fridge…
everything requires some sort of prep…so i settle for some water and head back to bed.

i am pretty sure i know what’s going on.

i have been more free with my carb in take.  no, nothing insane…just introducing some stuff back in to my life…and i think my body is telling me i’m adding too much too fast.

since i stopped eating yogurt at home…i started eating it at work.  this is a fruit yogurt with fresh fruits and granola.  i am sure the yogurt is packed with sugar…and no…i don’t feel guilty for eating a little granola…but i think the sugar is making me hungry!  these yogurt parfaits are made fresh in the morning, so there is no nutritional info listed…so who knows how much sugar i am really consuming.

i had some rye toast on a breakfast date this past weekend…but again…i don’t feel guilty about it…but i think my body is having a hard time processing what’s going on.

it’s time i pulled out the ol’ Atkins book.

although i still wouldn’t mind if i lost a pound or two, that is no longer my focus.  i’ve been able to maintain my weight loss for some time…and i am pretty sure the gym is the reason.  i think that by working out…my options concerning food have opened up.
the gym is just going to be a reality for the rest of my life…and i love it enough to be ok with that.

but in the mean time…i want to start incorporating more foods in to my life.  it’s time.
i’ve been unusually scared of this place – the “maintenance” stage…and i have been putting it off.
in the past…i’ve come to this point, only to turn around and ruin everything i worked so hard for…
not this time.  there is no room in my life for failure.

so i am going to have a hot date with mr. atkins tonight…lay in bed and curl up with his book and read up on the maintenance stage.
lets hope my belly, and the puppy don’t duke it out!

    I’m laughing as I picture Kali growling at your stomach growling! lol I go through days when I am not hungry at all…don’t really think about food…and then there are those days when I seem to crave everything I shouldn’t…like a McDouble cheeseburger…why did they have to go and put that on the Dollar Menu!!! lol
