This one is a bit interesting because I remember that exact day... and I remember the hunger gnawing at me (in fact I experienced quite the similar feelings today!) and feeling as though I could just eat and eat and eat! I hate that feeling because of my all time fear of getting fat again. Thinking back, however, I never felt exactly like that when I was fat. It's kinda nice knowing that I've completely rejuvenated my metabolism.
So what stands out to me about this post is not so much what I wrote... but the comments that fellow Sparkers posted on it, so I shall include those on this blog, as well. This was about 3 months into my weight loss journey and I was approximately 35 pounds down. In fact, here's a picture of me from around that time to visualize:

find it so difficult to even remember being that big, I feel like that is someone else in the picture. Okay, now on to the blog!

I'm SO hungry... I've been snacking all day, too, I don't know what's wrong with me, but every time I eat something new it's like it doesn't affect my hunger or I'll be satisfied and then an hour later I'm hungry again. What the hell??? I've had almost 6 cups of water already.. I keep drinking and drinking... Arghhh I wish my stomach would just SHUT UP!
I really just wanted to share the support of Sparkers on Sparkpeople. The comments start at the bottom and work their way up, I deleted their names and such, because I have no idea how they would feel about me sharing this on my blog... I would assume they would be okay with it since my page is public, but no sense offending anyone when it's easily avoided. Life was so different almost three years ago (wow, has it really been so long!?!), yet so many things are still the same. This weight loss journey is more than being about weight loss, it is about all the obstacles that come with it and how I worked to overcome them and how much effort I still put into staying on top of them now (like that irksome bottomless pit feeling!).
Until tomorrow folks!
