Those of you that know me or have read some of my words, might realize that I am drink, drug and tobacco free. Typically, when we remove one addiction another one will step in its place. My present addiction is food. Some of you might know that I have lost a lot of weight (on purpose) since my congestive heart failure on February 10, 2021.
I have planned days to eat higher carbohydrates (carbs) during my weight loss program. Sometimes it is difficult to get back on track, but that is a topic for another day. Today is the fourth day of returning to the plan. During the first three days is always an eating frenzy to taste the things I have been jonesing for. This action is similar to the same as with any other addiction. My energy level takes a big hit during this time – all I want to do is eat tasty high carbs and lay down. Not only does my energy take a hit, but so does my self-esteem.
My desire to write, walk or socialize is diminished to almost nil till the fourth day. However the fourth day is two days too many. I hope to eventually learn to eat better and not be on some kind of diet. Habits and addictions are hard to change, but I feel it will eventually take place, but I should remained to be vigil and take it one day at a time.
