    Inconsistent Care For Myself

    When I am with a man and happy (I hate that those are equated, but they are) I tend to gain about 14lbs.  I eat whenever he does, and nearly the amount.  When I am sad and romanceless, I skip meals and lose the 14lbs, which attracts someone new...again I cycle through...

    I know that this is what I do.  As I reach for the raw cookie dough, I know I am doing it to feel better about wasting my time when I should be accomplishing something.  I know that during the fourth trip to the fridge in as many minutes, nothing has changed, but I...

    Food Is <3

    When I'm bored I find myself in the kitchen looking for a snack. It always seems to cheer me up when I feel blue. Food is made of love, especially when I take ingredients and throw them together.

    I can't help it! It's a nasty circle.

    I eat when I am stressed. I also eat when I am bored. I eat when I am watching TV. I don't know why but I do but I feel better when I eat. I feel satisfied but only for a moment but then I just feel worse. It's a nasty circle!

    My Life and Emotions Revolve Around Food

    when there's a death people bring food to the family, when there's family gatherings the table is full of food, when we celebrate there is food handed out it's such a intertwined element in life it just makes sense to eat for no reason

    I hate being bored. When I'm bored, I usually just sit there, staring at nothing. And, after a while of that, my mind starts to wonder. Then it's just down hill from there.
