Note to self, do not go grocery shopping when you haven't eaten yet that day...

post #1 of 25

I am so gross. I was so hungry at the grocery store that I bought so much crap junk food...

-A four pack of twix bars (I can't remember the last time I bought a chocolate bar, let alone FOUR)

-A big bag of chips..again I can't remember the last time I bought that

-Another batch of pillsbury cookies (yes I already have one that I'm baking today, apparently, I thought I needed cookie backup)

-A Pack of milano cookies

As for fruits and veggies, I got some lettuce

What is wrong with me??

I think I might've rubbed off on you....I've eaten Doritos, Cheetos, Fritos, & lays potato chips for lunch sevearl time this week.

I honestly see nothing wrong with the shopping you did!

Nothing. You are perfectly normal. Last week Lee and I stopped after work to get some things for him to pack for lunches. We bought all kinds of junk we never buy. Come to find out Lee was starving and i was pretty hungry too. I normally never take Lee with me anyway cause he is a junk-aholic!

Nothing! I am the SAME way, although I have gotten better. When you are that hungry, anything looks good, and you want something right away just so you stop feeling those hunger pains.

I did that myself last night. We stopped at Aldis and I was starving so I bought things I normally wouldn't buy, let alone eat, so I hope DH will eat it.
Fortunately we stopped for food before we went to the next store and I was fine after that, not to much junk food ended up in the cart.

Yep, its always bad when you go grocery shopping and you're hungry...ugh!

Or in my case, I take my hubby along. That man just wants to buy everything! Our bill is always so much more whenever he tags along!

If I make the mistake of taking mine while he's hungry I cannot let him out of my sight.
He'll head over to the frozen food section and grab all sorts of overpriced stuff. If I shop hungry I usually buy more veggies and maybe one bag of chips. My stomach hates snack foods so I no longer really eat them.

I'm always sure to eat before I go grocery shopping, otherwise I buy too much. What also helps is looking at the balance in my checkbook, that always makes me sick to look at too, which makes me not want to buy anything

I went to the store and bought junk to, frozen pizza, fish sticks, frozen taquitos, just crap ...Then I stopped and bought 3 maple Bars donuts I already ate them now I wanna take the crap I bought back to the store

I don't buy stuff like that often either but when I do, I think it's more of a craving than being hungry. And I've tried to eat some of all of it the first night - this one. No, this one. Well, some of this one. Sometimes the sweet/salt combo calls out: Cookie! Chip! Then you have trouble balancing it out. Twinkie! Chip! Next thing I know, my stomach is on strike.

Help yourselves, I have lots of milk too..And like 2 dozen cookies. If I eat them all myself, I will surely pass out from sugar intake.

Rule #1 with grocery shopping is never go when your hungry. You never know what you might come home with if you do.

OMG, my stomach hurts..I already had EIGHT cookies
post #20 of 25
Ewwww 8 cookies!

If it makes you feel any better, I ate before going grocery shopping and still bought a load of junk!

What really helps me- is i put a granola bar in my purse on the way to the grocery store and eat it on the way there before i go in if i'm driving. (if i'm already there working- i just shop after my shift is over). That helps a little bit as far as compulsive buys go. I REALLY try to stick to my list. I won't shop without it (otherwise i'll buy lots of things i don't need.) We've all been there gorgeous- next time just take a list and a snack with you

one more thing- when you make your list- don't be a total drill sergent about it- allow yourself one thing that is a "treat" type thing- just write it into your list so that you can see you're allowing yourself something sweet and you don't need more. Works really well for me! That way i can still see that i'm getting something that i like- but won't feel the compulsion to buy it specifically since it's not on my list and wind up with more stuff.

That's the truth! We have expenses split between the two of us and the groceries are one of mine. Whenever he wants to come shopping with me I always twist the truth a bit and tell him I don't have much of my grocery budget fund left. (I don't even budget for food because I get whatever we need regardless of price.) Fortunately he doesn't buy junk food, but he'll end up with expensive deli meats, special breads, expensive cheese (he loves to try different cheeses), 3 different kinds of grapes, plus other fruit like bananas, apples, cherries, oranges, mandarins. He likes to have lots of fruit in the house. (I do too so that's not a biggie, but the cheese and deli meats sure add up.)

Taking him with me to Costco is a definite NO-NO. I got to the check-out one day at Costco to find a new range hood fan in the cart!

Nothing wrong with you sweetie~its normal!!

I also hate going after you eat because then nothing looks good and I know with me, I then dont wanna get anything because I am too full to even think about cooking again

Cant win for losing, huh??

Uh, I just found out this morning that those EIGHT cookies I ate last night had 100 calories and 5 grams of fat EACH...So, I consumed 800 calories and 40 grams of fat in a matter of minutes.

Boy, I am disgusting
