Okay, Diane! You just made me face up to something I have recently been saying about myself. And, man! Is it uncomfortable to voice!
I am a food addict! Yikes!!!!
Okay, now I’ve got that out in the open. And, it doesn’t feel any better. Moving on then…
I saw a picture Diane posted on her blog, the one of the glass of milk with the Oreo cookie in it. Too yummy. I have been craving anything and everything that is not in the house (I am trying to watch my blood sugar levels and behave myself). Today, I have wanted cookies since breakfast!
Do you want to know the funny part? I’m not as “into” cookies as I am other things, and I don’t care much for drinking milk. And, I really don’t like wet food, so I am NOT a dunker! LOL! Shouldn’t have even tempted me, but sure enough it looks SOOOO good.
Here’s the thing. I am not the same type of food addict as some, where you binge on too much in a sitting, eat constantly, focus on food all the time, or drive from one place to another to keep eating whatever you haven’t had yet. I do have a reasonable appetite as far as quantity in a sitting goes.
My personal addiction with food is that I eat what I want, the thing that sounds, smells or looks good to me. So, if I see a commercial, picture or smell a scent that is wonderful, then that is what I want. Too often I get what I want, and sometimes I get it when I want it.
At the moment, my help is coming from a too-tight budget, so there isn’t an option to have things in the house that I shouldn’t be eating. I have to decide what to put the money on, so I am careful about the decisions I make in the grocery store, which ultimately helps the eating habits.
Truthfully, if it weren’t for the money right now, I would have juice bars, and drum stick ice cream in the freezer, and cookies and chips in the pantry. Once they are there, though it is not like I have to eat them until they are gone. Not like they call my name at all times. More like, if that is what I want, then I go get a little of it. It even stops me at times from grabbing something while out. I know I have this good stuff at home and I should just come home and have that if I want something.
So, as I am thinking of making a cookie run today, I see the cookie and milk picture and, almost simultaneously, my honey comes in and says we are out of milk and will I please go to the store for some tonight! I decided to watch The Biggest Loser first. LOL! O, yeah. Like that is going to help. Honestly, I have wanted cookies all day, before seeing the picture.
As a teen, my favorite Sesame Street character (yes, I started watching that as a senior in high school) was the cookie monster. Today, he is talking to me.
Alright then. Can anyone say, Cookies?
