I’m not addicted to food… Anymore.
I used to be– real talk.
I would totally use food to feel good (good, good, good).
In fact I would set aside an entire day for it and it was called my cheat day. aka. An entire day of trying to squeeze in all the things I could.
Before I even cared that much, I would just pig out whenever I wanted to wipe out a bag of cheetos or something though lol.
Food was a BIG deal, even when I wasn’t hungry– it helped me feel good:
at the end of a crappy day at a job I hated
after a night out doing total crap, just to fit in while I numbed out watching actors live it up on TV
I didn’t even know at the time but food was my drug back then.
I only noticed after it was no longer needed.
After I was finally able to really start accepting all the crap I held my self hostage for–
being different and
wanting SO much more than I thought was possible for me
Gradually food was still quite tasty but just a lot less of a big freakin deal.
I rarely eat junk food or even crave it.
Like now, here I am at the end of my 2nd day of a 3 day smoothie & juice detox and I am totally fine. 3 days is nothing ha ha!
It’s quite easy and mellow.
I actually feel really good & my tummy is happy.
Without realizing it, I traded my food addiction for living– really living and ALLOWING me to be me.
And nothing tastes sweeter than that.
I stay hungry for living a life that makes me #comeAlive.
