Any Advice On Managing A DD during Tom...or any times you are white knuckling it?
 
It is a week before my tom...and had a DD yesterday.

Well...I wanted to EAT! Stuck to under 500 cals...but I was fantasising about food...honestly, when you give the cats their dinner, and think "mmm, that smells appetizing!"...you know you're in trouble! :rofl:

First time..other than my first DD, when I was really white knuckling it! :(

funny thing was...i wasn't hungrier than usual...just wanted to eat!:confused:

Drank gallons of hot tea...and ate tons of veggies so I could be munching as much as possible. By bedtime I had a very round...and very noisy tummy!:lol: Good job Dh is a snorer..or he would have been kept awake! :hyst:

Just wondered if any of you had any strategies...or recipes...for those white knuckle DD's?

Annoying thing is...today...my UD....I feel quite "normal" appetite wise :confused:..but come tomorrow....

hugs

Gluc pudding...large portion, sweet fix, little calories. In fact, I'm making some this afternoon for later (DD today).

SF jello (store-bought or homemade)...see above. :)

Diet soda...something about the fizz seems to satisfy me.

Napping...can't "starve" if I'm asleep.

Good luck, hon! You can do it!! :console:

Hang in there! How are you doing? Are you in bed for the night? It's after 11:30 pm there. Hope you got through this hard DD and held to your calories. Tomorrow will be a rewarding UD. :hugs:

Made it through ok, under 500! It was actually yesterday, had a great 1700 UD today, and as it's 1am here, I am officially on my next DD!
Just find my appetite is so much higher the week before Tom!

Makes my DD's a bit harder, but I have no intention of going over my cals!

Wish me luck!

You are definitely a Night Owl! :laugh:

Good luck on this current upcoming Down Day then, and glad you had a great 1700 UD today.
