I have had in my life a real tough battle with food. Food is not my friend by my enemy. It some what of a love hate relationship I suppose. I go from eating food because its nutritious to my body to I want it and have to have it. I read a book someone suggested called or am reading a book called "Women, Food and God" and in that book it says to look at your food and eat food because you need energy not because you are emotional and need it cause the day was tough. Some times I have had these thoughts: tough day, lets go out for dinner (way too many calories). When I get there I just wanna go home. I have a food problem does anyone else out there have the same problem?

My boyfriend of 4+ years told me once while we were on a trip that my food or thought of food consumes my being. I may not be starving but if I don't get food right then and there I will like a 2 yr old have a melt down. However, in my defense when we go on trips he can go all day without eating and I can't which is when this food problem comes up. I need to work on having a relationship with my food and myself, any advice?

    Laura, You are not alone. I do the same thing about "have to have it now". I am working on it though. Yesterday we went past my regular lunch time. I was almost paniced but I stopped myself and thought about what would happen if I don't eat right now? I made a choice to make it home except for the small snack we got at the store. LOL. The other choice was to eat out which like you say is way too many calories. I don't know if I'm helping you or just rambling. Just remember food is an addiction for some (me) like anything else can be an addiction. It takes time to change your thinking about food. Before I read your blog I was sitting here with my lunch thinking how much better food tastes when you wait for it.

    This is a great start--making explicit your relationship with food. Keep doing this. I believe you'll see changes in how you relate to food as you continue to reveal to yourself what's going on. Small changes are ok, and some discipline will be important. You're doing beautifully! emoticon emoticon
