Oh, Man. I'm Hungry and Used Up All My Points

I'm about to hit another glass of water, cause I am feeling mighty peckish.

I had a sizable breakfast (egg white with spinach, mushroom, and red pepper frittata with cheese and apple juice),and a too large late lunch after Pilates--which was grueling, cause I'm still congested--and used up all my points. I just seemed to be this aching hole and instead of being satisfied with sandwich and veggies and soup, added on yogurt with fruit and granola and a latte.

I'm gonna try to ride it out a bit, but if it gets worse, I'll cave and have something light (ie, 200 to 300 cals) just so I don't have a total binge. Maybe some Cheerios and berries, so I don't have to fiddle with heating stuff up and smelling food smells.

Grrr. I hate when I don't spread the points out better.

I hope y'all were smarter than I was today.

I'm glad I exercised. :)

if you are hungry, definitely eat! if you used all your points up, just go for something really healthy and filling that you absolutely cannot feel guilty about like a salad, some almonds, fresh fruit - stuff like that.

thanks for your note on my blog - it helps to have that support!

I agree with Heather. Eat something if you are sure that you are hungry.

I use the WW points system, but haven't been to a meeting in years. So maybe my info is out of date, but I seem to remember a list of zero-point foods. Don't they have that anymore?

Your late breakfast sounds so yummy. I'm blog reading to keep from eating. Hang in there your doing great.

Have you ever heard of the book 'Skinny Bitch'? It's really good and you might find it helpful. It certainly helped me to stay on my weight (I have a healthy weight now), but I used to have problems with food when I was younger. I had Anorexia and Bulimia and ended up in the hospital for 8.5 months.
I've been following your blog for a while now, by the way. You inspire me.
And you seem like a great person, even though I don't know you personally. Never let anything bring you down, because if it brings you down, you know it's not worth the energy of being down. (:

Stay good.

It sucks when you use up all your points early. I count calories, and there are days when I've used the majority of them up by lunchtime. Not often though, thank goodness!

Sounds like a scrummy brekkie.

Im no expert on WW at all so you may wanna discount my .02.
can you add in a proteinsnack? scrambled eggwhites or eggsubstitute?

or is that a NONONO?
