Help! I’m an addict! I can’t stop gorging on ice cream!
What has happened to me? When I was younger, I was able to control such habits. Is it common when we age to experience such a shift in self-discipline?
In an effort to get back to healthier eating habits, I’ve joined dietbetter.com. I joined once before, and that was what it took to get me back on track. You can pick a group to join and the amount of money to bet. Winners, those who lose 4% of their body weight in a month, split the pot. Although I’m not an advocate of gambling, this gives me a kick in the butt to change my ways.
My plan is to eliminate sugar, cut down on food portions, and continue to eat real (not processed) foods. I also have to be careful, once the month is over, not to allow myself even one spoonful of ice cream, or I’ll be back to where I always am…compulsively eating ice cream.
I wonder, is this addiction worse because of getting older or because of addictive chemicals that are put into the ice cream? Or, have I evolved into another being altogether?
Yours in not aging so well with class,
P.S. Makes me think of my Dad’s poem, Suet Suit.
