January 17th

Another quick post today...

Food and I have made amends.  We have made our apologies to each other and have decided that we can and will get along.  I vowed to stop abusing food and food vowed to not to put weight on me. 

I will be eating to live, not living to eat. 

Food is necessary for survival.  I was surviving for food.

I am an addict.  Food addiction is hard to overcome.  Food is your best friend night or day, good or bad, rain or shine, bored or busy.  You will always have a friend in food.  I know I have friends that are there for me and love me no matter what I look like or who I am. The people in my life are amazing and bring something different to my life.  I don't know what I would do without each and every one of my friends and family.  However, food is a different kind of friend.  It is unexplainable as to the kind of friend food is.  Unless you have an addiction to food or have food issues, you really don't understand this.  I'm sure though that every reader, every person can relate to this.

I think my friendship with food is going through a trial separation.  We have not gotten along in a very long time, so now I think it's time to try something new.  We are not separating completely, we are seeing other people.  We are still together, but food and I aren't living together anymore. 

Yes the analogy isn't the best, but I think this is the best way for me to describe my relationship with food. 

My readers, I would like for you to think about your relationship with food.  How would you describe it?  What kind of relationship would you like to have?  Feel free to comment below, I would love to hear from you.

  1. Undoubtedly, I have a addiction to food. My father says addiction runs in the family, and I completely and successfully avoided all drugs, alcohol, and tobacco in an effort to not go down that path. But oops..... nobody was talking about addiction to food when I started down that path.

    An another topic, I hope you don't mind but this blog has inspired me to start one of my own. I have really struggled lately, and I think this form of accountability may be what I need to kick start my life-style change.

  2. I got the idea from a co-worker! All it takes is one!
