    Hunger is physical. You feel it in your stomach... sometimes you hear it from there too.

    From my experience the food noise in the brain is often just urges, cravings, and dissatisfaction. Dissatisfaction is one of the worst. It is that deal where you roam the kitchen, streets, or universe in search of "something good" and eating various other things during your trek.

    Sometimes it is a combination of the two. You can be hungry and dissatisfied at the same time.

    A lot of my so called “ hunger “ today is probably due to stress...concerned about the spinal injections husband is getting in the morning...but I still felt hungry...I tried to eat 1220 calories today for a 2 lb a week loss but I was really active this morning and I think I needed to refuel before I did...I usually dont eat breakfast but I should have had a string cheese or something this morning besides coffee....I only had a 240 calorie lunch and when I wrote this post I really was hungry!...after I wrote this I had an English muffin and a cup of lite hot chocolate which held me till dinner and then I got a 45 minutes swim in so I can have my snack later and stay around 1450 calories for the day!...yay me!

    Sometimes thirst presents as hunger, I always drink a glass of water and wait a few minutes.

    Just a quick question... How much do your daily calories drop as you lose weight? I know you can input it through MFP and it's supposed to automatically lower it every, what, ten pounds or so?

    But, I'm not using the calorie goals given to me by MFP, I'm using what my dietician told me to do. So, I'm just curious? I've lost ten pounds since my last meeting with her, and I have another appointment with her on the 15th. But I'm still just curious :p

    @rieraclaelin From what I've seen when I go through the guided set up after every 10 pounds or so, it looks like it decreases 5 calories for every pound lost. Just recently I saw someone post that it's a 5.5 calorie decrease for every pound lost so that seems close to what I've been seeing.

    Weird question, but, as you lose weight, does the way your fat feels change?

    Like, for example, I have a lot of fat around my stomach, both upper and lower. Moreso upper, though. And it used to be kinda tight? Still squishy, but also pretty tight.

    But now that I've lost almost 42 pounds since June, I noticed today that it's very, uh, jelly like? Well, kinda like a waterbed, actually. I poke my stomach and it wobbles like water :p and it's not nearly as tight there

    Just an observation I made, and was curious!

    Honestly, I thought MFP readjusts calories when it is appropriate - I didn't really give it a second thought. But now reading your response above, I kinda freaked out...I went thru the goals and had it recalculate my calories and sure enough, it dropped them, just over 5 calories per pound I've lost.

    I had no idea I had to go in and do this myself!!! UGH!!! Not that I'm against having to do the work, I just didn't know, I thought the system did it. Anyway, so is every 10 pounds when you would recommend recalculating?

    (And now having this knowledge, I could just hug you!) :)
