I have a struggle with food. Sugar addiction, compulsive overeating, yep, hi, that’s me. If you too have a struggle with food maybe the title of my post grabbed you. It’s so true isn’t it? The holidays are a hard time for most people because of the abundance of delicious meals and treats but I think it’s especially hard for those of us with eating disorders.
For me, the holiday parties, the office parties and even family get togethers prove to be a challenge because I worry about giving into cravings and temptations. I practice abstinence from sugar and foods that trigger overeating and quite frankly the holidays remind of how much it really sucks that I can’t eat like everyone else. It’s tough to be sitting with co-workers, friends or family and feel like everyone else gets to eat a piece of pie or that yummy looking cookie but I can’t. But I also know that if I do give in it will lead me down a path of overeating and I’ve done that about 23423408 times in my life.
