Addiction as defined by Merriam-Webster dictionary states it is a strong and harmful need to regularly have something or do something.
Now being on the weight loss journey I have come to grips with the fact indeed one can have an addiction to certain foods.
I know there are some things that I just need to not have at all.
They set me down on a wrong path, one that I find hard to get back on track from.
I clearly can see this as evidence of an addiction as stated by the definition above.
The saying of “All things in moderation” just does not apply to me….an addict. I CANNOT have just a little of “this” and expect it to not to have a detrimental consequence on me.
I wish I had accepted this a long time ago. You see I absolutely have no regrets over the decision I made to have surgery, how can I with the positive results I have had, I only wonder f I had accepted this long ago and acted upon it would the decision of surgery ever really have needed to be an option.
Just like a drug addict or alcoholic I too MUST steer clear of certain things…forever.
I am OK with this.
I accept this.
I move on.
Yesterday I had a tuna boat for lunch accompanied by grapefruit segments. Delish!
Dinner rolled around and I completely enjoyed my Thai Tofu that I just have not made for a long time.
I am loving my journey and love that you are here right with me. Thank you!
Until next time…
