Hard Day

Today is another reminder that weight loss surgery doesn't "cure" food addiction. Food is ALL I CAN THINK ABOUT today. Even when I am not hungry. Things I want, but can't have. Things I used to binge on, things I don't have the ability to eat even if I wanted too. I have these days on and off where there is nothing but food in my brain. :(

I have days like that too. I just can't get food off my brain somedays. I have to keep myself so busy and find anything to do that is out of the kitchen and away from food! Good luck.

Girlfriend,
I know the feeling all too well. I also know how strong you are, and that you will succeed!

I absolutely, totally relate to this. And I know what you mean about not having the ability to binge anymore being hard. My stomach has shrunk a lot and I find it impossible to eat even 1/4 what I used to and while that is a blessing, it is also hard. It really is an obsession. Hang in there, it will go away and you will feel better soon.

I hate those days. Sometimes the best you can say is, "I'll do better tomorrow." Hang in there.

I cannot tell you how much I relate - I am finally truly dealing with my addiction, and joined a 12 step program. I am feeling hopeful that I can work through my addiction. If you ever want to talk, e-mail me! kelliannfesta@yahoo.com

I wish there was a surgery for our brains, 20 months out and I still struggle with this. Being a food addict sucks and will never go away!
