Anybody else ever do this?

I'm pregnant, so it was worse this time...yesterday I wanted to have chinese food delivered sooooo much. But DH doesn't like it a whole lot, so he agreed to go and get pizza. Such a disappointment and a waste of money cuz today I want the Chinese more than ever. Anybody else do this? Sometimes I just keep eating and eating hoping something will hit the spot...but until I get this ONE thing I'm never satisfied. I hate it! So now I guess today will spend more money ordering not only did I spend double the money, but I also ate fatty foods two days in a row. Ugh! I will eat healthy the rest of the day and week to make up for it, but still!

  • I'm on my way to get salt and vinegar kettle chips. Possibly organic root beer.

    I'm not judging you. I fully support your need. It's not even your need. The baby needs it.

  • I just went and got chinese for lunch because I've had a horrible craving for weeks now! I wanted chinese last night but SO wanted tacos so we went with tacos. Then yes, I ended up spending more money today and got chinese! You know the funny part? I'm not even pregnant!

  • Tee hee - anon that is what I was thinking! Pregnant or now, we want what we want and trying to curb a craving w/something else only postpones the inevitable! Mama's gotta have what mama's gotta have - end of story! Sure, pizza or tacos are fine for a compromise because it's not ALWAYS all about us, but sometimes, it's gotta be your turn and you gotta go get that fix! Have an eggroll for me! : ) Enjoy!!!!!!!!!! And yeah, since you are pregnant, screw compromising and say it's for the baby like the other poster said, ha ha! Work it, you deserve it! !!!!

  • I know what you mean. I wanted a MacDonald's fish sandwich and couldn't get it. So the next day I was focused on getting that sandwich!

  • I do it when I'm not pregnant too, it's just more often now! Some days I feel like I am just stuffing my face all day when it would all be over if I'd just cave and eat what I really want! Then I could go back to being healthy...instead of shoving anything that might sound kind of good down my throat in the hopes that the craving will go away. It's a vicious little cycle, it is. So this time, I'm just ordering it so i don't end up in my kitchen at 2 am taking bites out of everything.

  • I seriously figure if I'm craving something bad enough then there MUST be something in it my body needs. Honestly I justify all food cravings that way pregnant or not.
