non-stop hunger: Day 2

I'm back again! I bet you didn't expect to see day two didya? :)
Anyway, yesterday went well and all of that snacking was due to hunger. The santa fe beans and rice was actually eaten at midnight on Monday (not sure if this was a good idea) and then I ate an apple, hunger, pretzels, hunger, salad, hunger, beef jerky, hunger... it went like that.

I'll admit that I've often confused other things with hunger such as thirst or emotional hunger, but this was stomach pangs. Which I will contribute to eating too much last week. The sugar cravings went away a lot yesterdayand that makes me feel good because I feel like I "suffered" a little one day by cutting back, which made the craving go away. Krissie asked (hi Krissie!) in yesterdays comments if sugar cereal contributes to sugar cravings. I really think so, but I'm not a nutritionalist (obviously, haha). I really do believe that eating a little sugar leads to wanting to eat more sugar. Even if its controlled portions and a diet brand, sometimes those can lead to even more cravings and leading us (me) feeling that we didn't have a real sweet, so we want more.

I'm working on being more disciplined with my actions and trying to push past the uncomfortable feelings I seem to get from doing simple things, like eating well and exercising.

PS: I got on the scale this morning and its even lower than yesterday, which is so comforting and obvious that if I follow the plan I can and will lose weight. Sometimes I get so tripped up in "oh, it wont work" or "I can't do this" that I don't even try.

I know how you feel. I finally went back to Weight Watchers last week, and I've been trying really, really hard to do well, but it is like I am seriously hungry all of the time. I will wait 10-20 minutes to see if I'm really hungry, and I usually am. I usually end up going over my points target by about 5-10, but at least I've been exercising more regularly. I'll see how it goes at my weigh-in on Thursday.

I beg you to check out my lens at Squidoo dot com / hcg
I realize from reading your lens that you have already passed judgement on 'The Weight Loss Cure'. Please reconsider. So many thousands of folks, including me, are finding this is a cure for the hunger that simply won't go away any other way. That is the real miracle of the protocol, not just that you can drop the weight rapidly, but doing it without hunger and having the hunger STAY gone afterward.
I have a video log on YouTube at YouTube dot com / sheepra that documents my experience so far with this inexpensive and relatively simple protocol. PLEASE check it out and see if perhaps it isn't the answer to your prayers as it has been to mine.
Blessed, healthy, prosperous & free be,

Hello, This is Mary

I am 36 years old with 2 toddlers. My youngest just started day care last week- which still feels a little strange. I haven't had this much time to myself in years. First thing I want to do is lose the extra pounds I put on during the last pregnancy. One of the girls next door has suggested I join her walking group two days a week. After my first pregnancy I lost around 35 pounds using the Herbalife products, but when I called the man that sold them to me three years ago he told me this week he doesn't sell them anymore. He told me to look on the internet. It's disappointing because he was really nice and he called me regularly to make sure I was using their products correctly. It was nice to have someone checking in with me every week to see how I was and it kept me motivated.

I searched on the internet for someone that sells Herbalife in New Jersey. I found many websites but I don't want
just to buy the products, I want to find someone trustworthy that sells the products so I can also meet them and get started again.

Could anybody here recommend someone in New Brunswick?

Thanks, Mary

Hi Mary,

>From one mom to another I think I have a solution for you!! I want to lose 40 pounds, and I've lost 28 so far!!! I am feeling fantastic and have more energy than I did when I was in college. I went through three different Herbalife distributors until I found the person I felt really actually cared about me and helped me to start getting results. The bottom line was that I wanted to find somebody that could offer me good prices, but that could also check in with me to make sure I was doing ok.

I used to drive two hours to meet with my first distributor in West Haven, Connecticut. I even brought the girls with me a few times because I couldn't find a babysitter. Today my Herbalife coach does everything over the phone and it is much easier with my busy schedule. You can order Herbalife online on his website, you get the shakes a few days after with FedEx and then you can setup a telephone meeting once a week to make sure you are doing the program right.

His name is Danny Castello and his website is www.goshape.com. The number is (310) 928- 3835. He and his girlfriend Michaela actually do most of the coaching together as a team, but she has an Herbalife site as well: www.puresteps.com. He does most of the motivation on the call and gives you important facts regarding nutrition. He can be a bit tough but he really wants you to get results. She is a bit softer- so they make a good combination. Actually I also recommend joining his newsletter first so you can see the articles on nutrition. They also have videos so you can see who they are before actually calling them. Its nice because they actually use the products too. You can see on their websites.

Hope this helps!
