The Dreaded Sugar Addiction

Monday, January 14, 2013

I am always amazed when people think I'm being funny by saying I am a "food addict"...because I am! I love food, crave food, binge with food and think about it all the time...pretty sure those are the signs of a true addict.
BUT SP has become my 12 Step Program...I still struggle, this weekend was wicked but tonight while fighting the urge to just eat everything in sight I quickly went onto SP to get motivated again. I am writing this to all the other food addicts out are not alone, it isn't easy but we CAN overcome it....I'm not giving up and neither should you!

    That's great that you were able to control your cravings I'm proud of you! Yes it is hard but saying No is such a accomplishment in itself!

    Thank you for sharing! I am also a food addict, and SUGAR is my downfall! I am looking into cutting it out completely for a week just so I can feel like I have some control. emoticon

    I just had a late night craving and decided to have some veggies instead of whatever bad decision I could have came up with..
We are rocking this!

    Yup. We hear you but unlike other addictions, we can't quit food cold turkey! Sigh....
