That box...it's so familiar to me. It looks like I've been there!
But, I haven't been there...not for over 2 years.
You see...there are some things I've embraced to be true for myself and I can't handle those donuts. I can't stop after one, and I can't just have a bite. The taste not only lingers on my lips, but in my mind...FOR DAYS...Then I'm in a war until I cave in and eat them...rushing to the store and inhaling them. They win! I lose...and I spiral deeper into food to comfort the loss.
Then there is the physical effect those donuts have on me...They drive up my blood sugar, and then my body releases insulin...and that insulin brings with it...Cravings and hunger light up my brain and all I can think about are the cravings and the hunger... You don't really know this until you've gone without...
When I simply removed problematic and controlling foods, everything changed! After a week of detoxing food became a bit more manageable and I became manageable again. Slowly I emerged from a very fragile place to strength because controlling foods were no longer around to control my brain and body... I could set diet and exercise goals and meet them, because I had more control...I began to increase the fats in the absence of carbs and I was easily satisfied and indulged.
It's been 25 months of living this way. I have embraced life and living on purpose again.
This is my story of addiction and the addictive nature foods had on me. Others will recognize that my story is their story.
