I am addicted to sugar and sweets of any kind. Cupcakes. Muffins. Candy. Cakes. Even sweets I don’t particularly like, I can’t ignore the temptation to eat everything within my reach. To a lesser extent, I’m addicted to food.
I realize there are some people who are truly ADDICTED to food, so I don’t want to minimize what they’re struggling with, but I do have a less-than positive relationship with food. I overeat. Food satisfies me in more ways than satiating my hunger.
I am much better than I used to be when I was nearly 50 pounds heavier, but I still have work to do. I want to lessen my ordinarily high sugar intake so I can enjoy the times I do eat sweets without feeling guilty about the cumulative effect. Especially when I’m not sure I even want to eat what I’m about to put in my mouth. That’s my main goal. My other goal is to stop overeating at dinner. My portion sizes have gotten better, but I have a habit of eating leftovers throughout the night. This is usually brought on by boredom.
I hope this post provides some measure of accountability for me. I know Laura is tired of hearing me complain about my eating habits.
