I Want a New Drug (Sprint 4/Day 7)

Monday, November 12, 2012

I thought of this song while I was in the shower this morning. I realize it's technically Monday now, by the way. I guess I'll have to do another blog later on today since in my mind this is Sunday's blog.

Food is like a drug I think. For me anyway, at times. Some days, I want a new drug. Food is one of the only drugs that's obvious to everyone else. You can get away with being another kind of drug addict -- for a long time actually -- without it being really obvious, in terms of how your body looks. It's really easy to hide other kinds of addictions. All of them eventually catch up with you, but food seems to be the one that's really hard for people to understand. Fat = lazy. It's a shame that people have little empathy for people with addictions. And even less empathy for people with food addictions.

Spent today watching a movie with my son, shopping for craft stuff with my kids, putting away Halloween stuff with my boyfriend, making some things for the craft fair next weekend and wishing I didn't have to go to work tomorrow. Both my daughter and I have sore throats and sneezes, so I might get my wish, but for reasons I don't really want.

Oh, and I got to watch my recorded episode of Glee this morning, without anybody bugging me. That was cool.

    I think some people understand more than others. Not everyone is affected by sugars and starches the way we are. I know how some foods can trigger a binge and I just cannot eat them. I know that emotions will send me hunting for food. Spark People really helps... I can blog about what is going on, make a plan to avoid certain situations or foods. Baby steps towards feeling good about myself by eating MORE vegetables. Seems like adding more is so much easier than taking anything away. You are not alone.

    food is like a drug, and some food seems more addictive than others. having a problem with sugar right now. why can't it be carrots or even steak that i want so much, instead of candy/sugar?
