Even after almost a year, I still get them - those uncontrollable cravings. I'm just like you see on TV. I start breathing heavy, I literally grip something tight to try and avoid the giving in to the insanity, but alas, often it doesn't work.
I'm far enough in this journey that a slight derailment does not completely throw me off the path. 2 Twinkies and a swiss roll will not put on the weight that I've lost this year. However, I start playing the body game when these crazy cravings happen. I circle 14 days out on the calendar. Because I'm pretty convinced that my cravings coincide with hormonal changes at ovulation and then again at menstruation. We shall see if it still holds true. But I do know something is going on in my body to have these ridiculous, "I might kill someone if I don't have something sweet and chewy," feelings!
Boot camp is still going well, although, it's a little frustrating to be pitted up against these healthy people who have been doing boot camp for a while. I often come in last in a lot of the cardio stuff. It's kind of sad for me. Usually I feel so empowered. We played basketball, and that was quite fun. Best comment of the night though...another girl says to me: "You've lost 94 lbs? I think that's a Snookie! You've lost a Snookie!"
