Christina, to the team! We all understand where you're coming from; I can't believe how many times I wake in the morning and my first thought is of food. That's just crazy! Might I suggest that your first step might be to 'fess up to your wonderful hubby? I'm sure he's aware of more than you think anyway. And come here to visit any time; we'll all get the sugar beast whipped together!
Lisa Leader: Spark Nebraska - The Official Team 'If you're tryin', you ain't'
My name is Christina, I am 27, and married to a wonderful man while currently living in PA with him and our cat.
But what he doesn't know is I am cheating on him with a pint of ice cream!
Obviously, I am new to the group but not so new to weight issues especially emotional eating and an overwhelming, what feels like an addiction to sweets. I wake up wanting donuts and cakes, I will eat dessert for dinner if I have the option, and I have to turn off the voice in my head that says go to Dairy Queen even if I am full or just eaten and it is cold outside.
But enough is enough. I have come up with every excuse from I don't have a problem, to big is beautiful, to they were running specials at the grocery store, to if my husband doesn't know I bought it, I didn't eat it. I do have a problem and I am paying for it by clothes fitting tighter, my body going into shock when I don't have sweets (and other things in general) and just plain feeling exhausted because of what I put in my body.
