And so it begins
Hi. My name is Jane. And I am a food addict. Oh, I have the proof. I could go on and on. And in this blog, trust me, I will. I lost 200 pounds. Yeah, big deal. Most people who want to lose weight have probably lost thousands of pounds over many years. So I did it all at once. However, as an addict, sometimes I slip. For instance. With the disease of obesity, I used to let myself eat a little bit of candy now and then. With my gastric bypass surgery, which I had in 2002, I found I could have some. But as an addict it just triggered the craving for more. So years ago I gave up candy cold turkey. But my addictive side made up some loop holes. Chocolate covered blueberries are fruit. The way God intended you should eat them. It’s a fine line. My addiction. My rules. So I don’t eat M&M’s. But my rational mind knows full well the caloric content of what I’m doing. So I need a constant reminder to knock it off. I love jeans. When I was fat (formerly super morbidly obese people can drop the f bomb like that), I never wore jeans. Now I prefer them low and tight. And after this, smaller. I know the size of the jeans isn’t important to me. I know that designers mess with women’s minds. I just know that I am a few chocolate covered blueberries too many away from my favorite jeans.
