In light of spurly's thread on the theology board about confessing our sins, it seemed appropriate to start a thread where we confess our diet struggles and sins, i.e., too many donuts...
I CAN'T QUIT EATING!!!!!
Something about being on a diet makes me want to inhale everything in sight. To further complicate matters, this week we are B-R-O-K-E. No money whatsoever for groceries, so meals are getting quite interesting. I should be conserving food, but my internal meal clock is screaming at me to eat everything because it's afraid I'm going to miss out on something. So I keep finding myself in front of the pantry trying to figure out what I can eat. Hubby was laughing at me - he said he wouldn't want to be stuck with me in a fight-for-your-life situation, 'cause I'd wind up making us all starve! LOL
Seriously, though... I eat when I don't want it and don't need it. It's like I'm trying to fix something, but I don't know exactly what. Sometimes I'm drawn to food like I imagine a druggie would be drawn to cocaine. It's like I must have the food, or I will just DIE. Obviously, I know better, but I can't seem to break this stupid draw I have toward food. I wish I could see it as a nutrient for my body and not an indulgence.
