My Food Addiction

Monday, March 18, 2013

I have finally come to terms with the fact that I have an addiction to food. I am sure some of you know how that feels. I have struggled with this for a long time. This weekend was really hard for me. I was under a lot of stress and all I did was eat. Previous to this I had been working really hard to keep tabs on my eating and had been doing well. However, it has been pointed out to me that as an addict I cannot control my eating for very long on my own.

So, with the help of my case manager, tomorrow I begin a regimented eating plan. I will be weighing my food and only eating certain things. There will be no sugar or flour because apparently those things affect your brain like drugs. This has helped her lose 88 pounds and keep it off over the last 5 years. I am very nervous and am not sure that I can do it.

I have planned out my meals for the next week and taped them to my refridgerator. I am going to throw out all of the sweets in my house. My boyfriend is on board with this because he supports whatever will make me healthier.

So tomorrow is emoticon of a new me!! Wish me luck!!!

    Hang in there! While it's true that many of us food addicts are addicts for a whole host of reasons - but many of us also fall prey to the addictive chemicals we're bombarded with in our food supply. Getting rid of these is tough in the beginning - but gets easier as time goes on and you'll feel so much better the further along you go.

    You can take charge of this!
    You can make your future!
    You can stare down your fear!
