You are NOT hungry right now. You are T-I-R-E-D!

That’s what happens when you wake up at 5AM and go to the gym before work. Pat yourself on the back and treat yourself right by hitting the hay early NOT eating to simply stay awake (like you normally do.)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Note Roni: You deserve an early bed night. Enjoy the comfort of your sheets and pillow. Sleep well :-)

    Roni!! Thanks for commenting on my blog. You are like a superstar in my book. I don’t wanna sound like a cheese ball… but I just love you! You are so down to earth and real, and I just identify with you so much. I watched the video post where you were talking about loving yourself, and you were crying, and I just sat there and sobbed because I look at you, and you are so put together and adorable, but hearing you express these feelings reminds me that once, you felt like me. But you pulled yourself out of it, and it reminds me that I can do it too. Thank you thank you thank you for ALL you do.

    Exactly! I’m glad you went to bed! The other night I was in the same situation. I had spent the entire day (11AM – 8:30PM) at my daughter’s high school making, sorting, fitting, altering and repairing costumes for their musical opening tonight. When I got home and sat in the living room with the husband, all I could think of was a bowl of cereal. It was after 9PM by then. But, like Roni, I realized I was not necessarily hungry, just tired. I listened to my tired old body and went to bed instead. I felt much better in the morning and had no guilt over having eaten that bowl of cereal. And, you better believe, if I’d eaten cereal the night before, it would have Reese’s Peanut Butter Puffs NOT Puffed Wheat!

    Yep. Tiredness can manifest itself in the form of hunger. Kudos on spotting the difference!

    This one thought has helped me alot lately – in the evening I want to munch and munch … I now make myself think about it. Am I hungry? Am I tired? Am I bored? – most of the time its bordom! And unless Im actually hungry then I dont give in – sometimes just a nice glass of hot tea will do the trick. It has really helped me stay away from my weekly extra points that I used to use entirely and mainly from night time!

    I have often fed my tiredness instead of just going to bed. It is a learning curve, this thing of figuring out when am I acutally hungry verses is it something else? Being an emotional eater, food is the first think I reach for to fix whatever feels broken. It takes practice to stop and ask myself what I am really feeling and what do I need.

    Kudos to you for knowing the difference.

    OMG! I do the EXACT same thing. Once I recognized that I was eating because I was tired, and I allowed myself to just go to sleep, no matter what time it was, losing weight was a lot easier!
