Food Addict

Sunday, June 26, 2011

I am a food addict. I love to cook and I love to eat. My kids are gone for the weekend and I am bored. This is the time when I want to eat, eat, eat. I know I have to change how I think and not get something to eat on impulse. Food is not my best friend, being overweight is going to kill me if I don't get it under control. I am working hard at changing the way I think. Am I hungry and if not; why do I want to eat? Now I drink a glass of water and wait 10 minutes and if I am still hungry, I keep veggies cut up in the fridge and I will eat some broccoli or cucumber slices. Another way I trick myself is I keep sugar free jello and I will have one of those. It is one day at a time. It is hard changing a lifetime of bad habits but I feel this site has given me the tools to finally get healthy. To those of you food addicts out there, I know what you are going through. Let's encourage one another!

    You are right. It is an addiction. I am addicted too and I know it will be a battle for the rest of my life. Let's do this together!

    I know how you feel. I didn't realize how passionate I was about food until a few years ago, when I finally moved out of my parents house.

    People compliment me on my cooking skills, and I appreciate it. One day, when someone complimented me, I had a really long speach about how much I love food. I love making it. I love eating it. I love sharing it with good friends... I think that I realized I had a problem when my speach went on and on for several minutes.
