I still haven't found anything to replace eating as my coping mechanism.  I do notice when I'm stressed my first thought is to eat.  I have been so busy with work and the gym and so many other things it hasn't been a problem yet. Now that I am starting to add food back in though, I want to make sure it doesn't become a problem again. 

Yesterday, I think I experienced hunger for the first time in a long time.  It made me really nervous!  I forgot what that felt like.  I made myself try a few bites of soup and then stopped.  It tasted so good.  Then I noticed an hour later my stomach was growling.  I couldn't decide if I was really hungry now or if the soup was just so good that I was convincing myself I was to eat more.  I did have a little more soup but then focused on water and protein.  I hope I can keep this strength up!  I still feel like I'm battling food addictions but for now I'm winning.  The lower I see my weight go, the happier it makes me and I do feel like I can do this.  Except for the stalls or the paranoia of when I see how much other people have lost that had surgery around the same time. 

Thank goodness its almost spring. I can't take any more of this cold weather!
