[QUOTE=calee;1091779]Awww, not strange at all. Many of us have eaten for reasons aside from hunger. I can totally relate to feeling a sense of loss.[/QUOTE]
It's almost worse than losing a loved one. It's strange because I don't know what do with myself anymore.

First off, I feel you.
When my kids are being asshats, I want to eat gobs and gobs of stupid shit candy.
I don't know WHY this is, but, well, I guess, for the moment, it makes everything OK.
Second off, I felt the way you feel above, when I stopped drinking every.single.night.
I was like, "wow, people go out at night? holy shit! TARGET IS OPEN PAST FIVE! NO WAY"
Not that I was a drunkard., the hubs and I just liked to have our fun cocktail hour, and there
was no leaving the house after THAT nonsense.
But seriously, leaving the house after five to go to ANY store was like, WHOA.
I didn't know what to do with myself either. Store, movie, long walk in the dark.. Wow.
Okay so I just made a ridiculously crazy ice cream, it will most likely throw off your ratios (as it did mine) but it can definitely be adapted I would think.
The recipe came from [url=http://paleomg.com/chocolate-peanut-butter-ice-cream-with-chocolate-shell/]PaleOMG – Paleo Recipes – Chocolate “Peanut Butter” Ice Cream with Chocolate Shell[/url]
Here is the rough break down:
The recipe for the chocolate shell can definitely be reduced in half, in my opinion it made too much. You could probably do a vanilla flavor (which obviously will change your fat/carb count) and my suspicion on the shell is that what makes it harden is the coconut oil so you probably could omit the nut butter and still have it turn out.
For those of you that are familiar with the dove ice creams that have the ganache layer, it is EXACTLY like that. Insanity
I just set up on MFP as caleeMDA. I would love some friends.

[QUOTE=geostump;1091752]For me, I sometimes miss snacking. I miss feeling "normal" if that makes any sense. I used to always snack on stuff here and there but now the hunger isn't there and it gets really bad if I am bored. Like bad to the point that I don't know what to do with myself. I had a breakdown of sorts Saturday night over this because I was just so damn bored. I just don't know what to do with myself so I sat and cried. It seems weird but part of me misses the eating, yet part of me feels free. I know, I'm just weird.[/QUOTE]
Thx for putting how I feel into words. I have been tracking my feelings this week when I eat (Am I hungry before/after eating etc) & come to realize I don't mostly eat because I'm hungry but because I feel the need to eat something if you see what I mean. I've put a 7pm curfew on myself which is helping but I'm not there yet. I guess I miss the feeling of being really full
here is an interesting article on stress...[url=http://healthylivinghowto.com/1/post/2013/02/what-to-do-about-high-cortisol.html?utm_source=Healthy+Living+How+To+Newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=352c327281-RSS_EMAIL_CAMPAIGN]Help! What to do About High Cortisol Levels[/url]
I actually don't like the feeling of being full. It kind of irritates me sometimes that I have to stop eating something I am enjoying because I am stuffed.
I went on a weekend trip to a local casino and had a few gin and tonics. I also got my period while I was there. Before I left I was 172 now Im up to 176. I am really hoping that its all just water weight. I feel like I did a really good job with my food choices while I was there. :-(
ah, the tonic will get you every time. I am sure it will turn right around now that you are back on it.
So yesterday went well, my mouth, well yes the copper poop feeling is there. My MFP username is the same as here, feel free to friend me if you are interested in what I ate and drank.
I have yet to taste this copper poop taste.. must be the listerine!! LOL
