    Default food addiction - ot, xp

    Well ladiesn you might be thinking I'm crazy after reading this, but I think I've actually figured something out and felt comfortable about coming here for mmaybe some support or help.

    I've always dealt with no self-control when it comes to eating food. I've even gone so far as to when I'm substitute teaching and the kids aren't in the classroom, I go on a "food hunt" to see what I can eat from the teacher's desk/cabinets. Horrible, I know. And lately, my anxiety (which had actually gotten better after Maxton was born) has started coming back and I've been noticing a correlation between eating or craving certain things and my frustration and anxiety levels. So I did some research and found some information on Food Addiction. It seems to fit me pretty well (it even falls in place with my ultra low sex drive - the last time DH and I did anything remotely sexually related was about a month ago ).

    So, it says that basically I have to cut out sugars, carbs, and flour - my 3 biggest cravings. (Heck, when I'm baking, ill sneak a spoonful of plain flour!). I've been talking to DH about it this morning and he seems to understand it a little bit. I'm thinking people are just going to laugh about it and call me lazy or something.

    I guess all I'm doing with this is just trying to talk it out, and thanks for reading.

    I can relate a bit to those sypmtoms. I have realized my habits seem to come around when I am stressed out or over tired. I would suggest replacing those forbidden foods with your favorite fruits or foods that are really good but feel bad for you...
    I started the new Weight Watchers program back in February (had to put that on hold while on all of these steroids and antibiotics to prep for!) but it worked amazing. I am a huge fan of fruit and 99% of them were zero points so you could snack all day and still maintai or lose weight...AND get my crvings under control. Just a might help retrain your thinking and redirect it somewhere positive. Good luck and
