Addictions... its such a huge issue today, and people will gladly support you when you say you're a recovering alcoholic or smoker or drug addict. But what happens when you're a food addict? Someone offers you a piece of cake and you tell them you're trying to watch what you eat, and they insist that you eat it anyway... that one piece wont hurt you... that you can 'diet' tomorrow. Some even get offended that you would not take what they offer you... I notice this in the Church especially.
Confession: I am a Food Addict.
I firmly believe in taking great care of this Temple, eating naturally to support my health, and avoiding junk & chemicals. Yet I'm constantly craving foods I should not eat. The desire takes over, and I cant even talk myself out of it. I'm definitely an emotional eater, even when someone makes fun of me for my weight- despite the sadness, I will intensely crave sugar, and even eat til I'm sick.
I hate this, I'm embarrassed by this, I don't want anyone to know... but I don't want it to go on either. So this is a desperate experiment... I am going to take a photo of every food I eat, and post it to this tumblr. Perhaps, knowing that everyone in the world can see exactly what I've eaten, this will give me an extra second to think before I stuff my face.
Please don't hate. Encourage me, if anything. Or just ignore me. If you're a Food Addict, message me, we could use some support. <3
