I'm struggling. Bad. I've lost 2 pounds since the day before Christmas. I'm still working out, so the problem is clear..I'm overeating.
1. To cause to become physiologically or psychologically dependent on a habit-forming substance.
2. To occupy (oneself) with or involve (oneself) in something habitually or compulsively.
No I'm not an addict to drugs...but I'm addicted to food. Food is as destructive to me as a controlled substance would be.
All I think about is food.
I obsess over it all day long...dawn till dusk.
I bust my arse off at the gym so I can eat more.
I quit drinking water, and moved on to diet dew.
Last night I was at my calorie limit for the day...went in the kitchen and had 2 beef sticks, a lean pocket, and a piece of fudge that's been in my fridge for 3 weeks. I was sick with myself.

Quit the pop/energy drinks. I need to get energy from the food and exercise, not a Low Carb Monster. I've quit pop before for 5 months, I know I can do it again.
Log my food in the morning. My life is not that spontaneous that I cannot plan ahead.
Eat four 300 calorie meals a day. I think this will work for me.
Eat every 4 hours....and nothing past 7. This will stop late night eating for me....which is becoming a problem.
At least 64 ounces of water a day...no excuses. It IS important!
Sparkpeople is a huge part of my life. I need to be loyal to it and the people on it. Meaning....

So here I go...still fighting. These addictions will probably never go away, but I know I can control them.
