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!
