    @SModa61 - now that’s funny!

    I had a total meltdown yesterday and I can’t figure what triggered it. I’ve been eating over cals since vacation but within a maintenance range and not gaining weight, so I haven’t been concerned. But yesterday I went nuts. Chips, sweets, repeat. I didn’t even track it all, just completely abandoned everything. I’m not panicking or beating myself up, but I do know I need to get a handle on it before it becomes a problem. There were no stressors, nothing emotional, nothing unusual. I wish I could identify what caused it to help me avoid a repeat. It’s been a couple months since I’ve had that kind of meltdown.

    @biketheworld I’m sorry to hear this. Always odd when we can think of no reason...

    It took me a couple of years to figure out excess SALT stimulates my appetite!! I’d known for a long time sugar did, but salt was a surprise. (Part of it was some foods have a ton of salt - and I never knew. The latest surprise: sourdough bread & Campbell's chicken noodle soup (bought at beginning of covid to stock up.) I had that today to finish off... shocking really. I know I need to keep the water going & be Really Careful tomorrow. Also salty foods trigger my sweet tooth...in case that helps.

    Americans eat an avg of 3,400 mg salt per day.
    Recommendation is < 2,300
    Older folks < 1,500

    2018 avg 1,444mg
    2019 avg 2.022
    2020 avg 1,840
    2021... 1,803

    I only have one kidney so I’m careful. Blood pressure is great NOW. I was in lisinopril when I was heavy & eating out all the time.

    “The Past is passed.”

    I hope something here helps someone.

    Hugs,
    Maddie

    Yes, yes and yes
    Walking and stretching

    @MadisonMolly2017 That is interesting about salt being a trigger. I am going to pay attention to this. I don't eat a lot of processed foods but I know I avoid processed soups because I find myself wanting to eat like crazy a couple of hours later. I always thought soup was supposed to fill me up but instead I found just the opposite when I eat soup out of a can.

    @RangerRickL I am not in the winners group but I still think April went fairly well. While not perfect, it has been good practice for maintenance.

    Yes, and I always craved dessert after Chinese or Mexican (SALT!)

    I’ve wondered if the obesity epidemic is a sugar & salt epidemic. Fat at least fills me up!

    I've listened to episode #479 of the Half Size Me Podcasts twice now..... there's just so much good stuff in there! :lol: (or maybe I'm just a little slow!!). Episode #475 is a really good one as well.

    @SModa61 :lol: LOL about your nightmare! What a fright!
