Food is the drug of choice for millions of people, and most do not even realize the self= medication involved with the process of eating. I am acquainted with alcoholics sworn to never drink again, who now turn to sugar for their "fix". For them it becomes a new struggle. From my own experience I know that some foods can be very addictive, and they have been chemically modified with additives to make us want more, such as a component in a well known chip, that contains an additive that is used to fatten up livestock. Studies have shown that rats would prefer water laced with sugar over water laced with cocaine.
There are no easy answers. Lord knows I would be skinny right now if I could find the right path and stay on it.
I do know that there is a higher power that is here to give us strength so that we may rise above it and move on. This higher power, for those who are not religious , can be the inner strength that we dig deep within ourselves to find. But this higher power can be the strength that comes from deep spirituality for those who are religious.
There is comfort in knowing there is a part of each and everyone of us that can rise above the struggles of losing weight to achieve goal.
LOOK for inspiration! I do search for inspiration every day! If he or she did it that so can we !!!
We shall rise above it no matter what!
