Is there rehab for this?
So we sold our house, finished another quarter of school, and went out to eat to celebrate it all.
I recently went to Fargo with my mom and sisters for a girls day. We went to a restaurant I haven't been to since I was in high school. It was then that I realized I might be additcted to food. I ordered a pizza. I could have easily ordered an individual, but I ordered medium. I told my mom and sisters it was so I could take some home. But in all reality, I didn't want to miss out the taste. This is where the addiction comes in.
If something taste good, I don't want to miss out on it. Example: last night we went to Buffalo Wild Wings. I wanted to get an appetizer because I love their Chili Con Queso, but I refrained. I ordered eight boneless honey BBQ wings and was full after seven. But...I love their fries, so I had to eat some of my sons. I also love pasta so I tried some of his mac & cheese. Then he wanted dessert. While knowing full well he wouldn't eat the whole thing, we ordered the chocolate cake with a scoop of ice cream. Let me tell you, it tasted amazing. Did I need it, no. I was full after my own meal, but I continued to eat. This is why I think I may have an addiction to food.
I need to find the will power to stop eating when I'm full and know that at some point, I will be able to eat the food I love again. It's no the end of the world if I can't have something to eat, but it's forcing my brain to understand that.
