Food Addiction | The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


Hi, my name is Lisa and I am addicted to food. 

This is the post where I talk about my love affair with food and how I am having to give it up for the sake of my health and to lose some weight.

I love food.  I love most everything, but I especially love chips and salsa, coffee, popcorn, chocolate, salty snacks….have I mentioned that I love chips?  BBQ, sour cream and onion, doritoes, cheddar and sour cream, pretzels, ranch, Pringles… doesn’t matter the flavor or brand as long as there is a CRUNCH to them.  Yes, I love to eat and I especially love the salty snacks. 

Moderation?  During the week, YES.  The weekends, not so much.

Why can I hold it together pretty well during the week, but on the weekends, my healthy eating goes to hell in a handbag?  Have you guys ever heard that expression?  Did I get it right?  Sometimes I get the slang phrase/cliches a little mixed up. 

Anyhoo, this past week was no exception.  Wed/Th/Fri- I kept up with my food log, writing every down that I ate.  Drinking my water, eating in moderation for a nursing mother.  Friday evening hit and I went out on a date with my husband to celebrate our 10 year anniversary.  I had decided beforehand that I would NOT drink any alcoholic beverages so as not to waste calories.  That thought flew right out the window once we sat down for dinner.  I had not just one, but TWO drinks (boy, were they yummy!).  The gluttony started with dinner that night and just continued on through the weekend. 

I cannot undo what I have done.  I can only make better choices for today.  And I will.

Why does the BAD food have to taste so good? 

I don’t have any answers for ya’ll.  I am POSITIVE that I am not the only one who has this love/hate relationship with food.  I love to eat it, I hate it when the fat hits my hips.

Oh yeah, it looks like I am now an official Shrinking Jeans blogger, contributor, weight loss guru (HA!), expert on all things.  Man, now I really feel the pressure to do right.  If you click on my picture to the right, it will take you to my own SJ blog, where I will post, oh I don’t know, maybe “stuff” and “whatnot”.  Be kind to me along the way and make sure to give me a shout-out when you can.  I’ll shout right back : ).
