OMG. I just saw your question on my post. I'm such a terrible sparker. We have been bad about P90x. It is hard, but do-able if you have done a botcamp before. I definitely definitely was sore afterwards, and we had to modify our days and couldn't do it straight through because I have derby practice twice a week. We really like the kempo video and my husband hates the yoga video, lol.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my latest blog. I totally understand how you feel--I also enjoy the feeling of being full. The problem is that I don't feel like I can tell the difference between comfortably full and Thanksgiving-style full until it's too late. I have no problem understanding that I'm hungry (which is most of the time), but whatever mechanism it is that tells us we've had enough is broken in me.

I don't think the feeling of being hungry most of the time will ever completely go away for me. Adjusting what and how I eat sometimes helps, but my big appetite is definitely still there. Most of the time, tracking takes care of that for me. I plan out what I want to eat for the day and do my best to stop when I've eaten my way through everything. Dealing with my huge appetite and wanting to be moderate presents another challenge. I basically strive to be moderate, but still track most of the time. I generally give myself one free meal a week plus extra flexibility on vacations and holidays. As I described in my blog, it's taken a while to get those meals under control, but I am getting better. I still eat too much at them (often to uncomfortable fullness), but not to the point that I end up writhing around in pain from eating so much, which was happening for a while.

I don't think this feeling is in our heads. Although we may have had enough to eat, I think there's something in our bodies (not our minds!) that's telling us we should eat more. I think we just need to ask ourselves honestly if it's reasonable to listen to what our bodies are telling us and eat more (i.e., if we've done lots of exercise that day or it actually has been a while since our last meal) or if we've really already had enough and we should just tough it out (easier said than done, of course!).

Sorry for the long post, but I hope at least some of this is helpful!

Thank you for the friend add! I did WW probably 6 or so years ago so I know it's much different now than it was back then. (Sheesh I feel old!) I did really enjoy it while I did it. I loved going in for meetings and getting the support I needed. Unfortunately when my favorite leader switched to a day that I couldn't go to, I lost my momentum and couldn't get it back again. He became a crutch for me at that point in time and I didn't know how to get back up.
