I’m working hard at eating healthy. It’s not an easy thing, but I’m trying. My doctor was talking to me about getting healthy and losing weight. She kept talking to me as if I was stupid and didn’t know what I’m supposed to be eating. I explained to her that I know what I should eat, but knowing doesn’t really mean much. There’s a huge difference between knowing something and putting it into action.

With food, my worst time of day is at night, specifically in the middle of the night between 11pm and 5am. I don’t know why I eat things then. When I can’t sleep, it seems like I fill my bored, tired body with food. It’s completely unnecessary, but I do it anyways. I can eat healthy all day long and then I go and mess it up in the middle of the night for no reason. I’m going to keep working on it. I’ll try again tonight not to eat for no reason.

Food is another addiction of mine. I’m already sober from drugs and alcohol. I know I need to add food to that list, but it’s a really hard thing to do. I’m grateful to have all the love and support that I do have. My family is understanding and encouraging.

  1. my affirmation for you is that you can pick one or even more things that work for you and your success follows.

    the thing a food as an addiction, you need food, no food-you die. no alcohol, no drugs-you can easily survive.

    i do recognize the 12 steps get applied to things outside it initial target, alcohol, and rightfully so. it’s the similar behavior that exists. it’s the mindset that needs to change and the 12 steps can do that. but, because food is a necessity, it makes it easier to justify out of bounds behavior which makes in harder to counter the behavior. tricky indeed.
