My name is Allison. I never put a lot of though into having a food addiction until I stumbled upon this group. It made me realize that I am totally addicted to food. Not necessarily sugar, but food in general.
I almost always overeat at almost every meal. I think it stems from being scared of getting in trouble for not clearing my plate when I was young. My sister never would and she would have to sit at the table for an hour sometimes until she ate her supper. We weren't beaten for it or anything bad like that, just didn't want to have to sit there and hear another lecture on the starving kids in Africa again.
In general, I eat very healthy food. My problem is I eat too much of it. I can't seem to be able to stop eating until I am stuffed full and nearly nauseous. I can out-eat almost anyone. I never really seem to notice until I'm done eating and feel ill.
I hope that there is some way I can learn to manage this, since it's hard for me to get started on anything new, and I often have a hard time with support.
Thanks for listening.
