Starvin Marvin...

Postby Whig » Wed Jan 08, 2014 12:16 pm

I'm just over 20 weeks and SOOO hungry ALL the time! I don't remember being this hungry with my first, but that was 3 years ago and apparently I've forgotten a lot in that time :)

I'm trying to eat healthy but sometimes it gets to the point where I just need to eat and I end up eating something not as healthy.. and then i beat myself up for not eating a salad or fruit or something like that... I do try really hard to balance out the good with the bad, but man... and THEN i start with the "well what if I gain more weight than I did last time, I'm going to be a cow, yada yada yada" and then I feel even worse for being hungry...

Please tell me I'm not the only one that this is happening with (more so the guilt rather the hunger. I know we are all hungry :) )

I hear ya loud & clear! I was doing okay until last week (I'm 22 weeks tomorrow) when all of the sudden I reverted back to starvation mode like in weeks 9-12. I've found a big lunch works wonders... after two breakfasts, of course.

Good luck!

Yup, same here. Started last week that I am constantly starving and cannot get enough food in me! It's hard to make healthy choices when all you want to do is just eat something. I understand the feeling of guilt too. I have borderline gestational diabetes so I have to constantly watch what I eat. I feel guilty when I eat something I shouldn't but reality is there are times you can't always eat right when you're starving! :)

I know! I'm learning (slowly) that eating slower and stopping when I'm full is better than pigging out, even though I WANT to pig out. I just eat til full, then try to save the rest of my food for the 30-40 minutes from that point that I'm hungry again... :-)
