View LYNNABEL's food & exercise for this day
After many weeks of a very manageable appetite level, I have sudden gone into a 5-day run of excessive hunger. Like STARVING. I wish I knew what triggers this - could be the time of year or it could be my body trying to make me gain weight or both. I am more and more convinced that my body does not really want me to maintain weight loss. I don't mean that I am not able to plan or adjust or that this means there is no hope or that this is an excuse not to try anymore, but I think that acknowledging the biological and physiological drive to not starve is very appropriate for me. I have no proof of this, but I suspect this is just the way it is for many short women, especially post-children.
So, I'm off to gnaw on my arm until lunch.
