    I am a MAJOR Pinterest addict! I am nearing 10,000 pins and that's AFTER I just deleted my desserts board and some other random boards. Buy I've always been like that... Although if I'm not careful it makes me WANT to binge!

    I was actually doing this tonight. I had a super intense craving for chocolate, so I grabbed some Jello and started looking up Pinterest dessert recipes instead.

    I actually have become ridiculous obsessed with both reading and social media since quitting smoking, and now adding dieting to it has sent me over the edge in constantly needing to feel occupied. I'm trying to turn that focus to fitness instead but, baby steps!

    I literally have a board specifically for stuff I will never make, unless I'm 100% sure someone ELSE will eat it x3

    Oh Im obsessed with Pinterest recipes. Its my way of dealing with cravings- better to just look than eat it!

    On the other hand, Ive found many great recipes there.

    I'm not alone! :D
    That makes me feel less crazy, yay.
    less crazy yet because I do it too. Same as the OP I never really thought of it that way but it's as if it's a fix just to pin the cookies or whatever it is ...like I'm now satisfied as if I ate them or something. It's weird thinking of it like that but hey whatever works right?! Works even better when the ingredients aren't in the house:tongue:

    That IS crazy how so many of us do that... again, never gave it much thought until the topic was brought up. I mostly have healthier versions of things but even browsing the less than healthy on others boards kicks the craving.

    :wink: Funny stuff, our minds! :drinker:

    Don't know about that! Pretty good way to do it if it's working... not pathetic at all.:drinker:

    I just recently joined pinterest, and I can totally understand how it would help curb cravings (or distract you until they go away lol). I do pin recipes but I mostly use it for workout ideas and motivation. Although my original goal was to pin outfits I want to get my hands on when I've lost the rest of the weight. I'm officially hooked!

    Yup! Everyday. I love pinning *kitten* that I'll never make, wear, or buy. Good times.

    Ditto. Pinterest has the best motivational pins.

    I love Pinterest. I could easily kill an hour there if I don't watch the clock. I started with no followers then people starting coming out of the woodwork to follow me. Guess it's that old "if you build it they will come"..:laugh:
