Eat All The Things!

I really hate feeling like that.

But I totally feel like Eating All The Things!


Yes, having VSG diminishes your hunger.  But trust me when I tell you, it can and will likely come back.  I am not one of the lucky ones who experiences absolutely no hunger whatsoever.  That would be my husband.I, on the other hand, have been physically hungry often.  Despite my best efforts to space out meals, drink nearly a gallon or more of water a day, and getting in activity daily, I still get hungry.

And I hate it.  I really, really do.  It makes me angry.

Don’t get me wrong–I don’t regret having the surgery and I’m not mad I did it.  I’m mad that I still get hungry.  I fight this every single day and most days, I win the fight.  But these past two days…I don’t feel like I’ve won the fight at all.  I’m trying so hard to fight the physical hunger but nothing is working.  At least it feels that way.  UGH…so frustrated!

Today I ate 984 calories, 97 protein, 52 carbs and 48 fat.  I drank exactly one gallon of water today and walked a hair over 3.1 miles  (2.5 of it in my classroom alone).  And the bad thing is that I still had gnawing hunger all day long.  Yes, I ate protein first–I didn’t have most of my carbs until dinner (probably not the best time to have them).  Stupid, stupid, stupid body.

I wish this hunger would pass.  Maybe it’s time to reintroduce my Pepcid.  Perhaps at mid-day.  I don’t know what the solution is here, but I’m in the thick of a nasty fight with my body and I feel like I’m losing it.
