For those of you who have been with me awhile, you have heard extensively about the many addictions I have fought over the years. When the opportunity arose for me to do a 31-day series via The Nester, the first subject that came to mind was food addiction. This is one I have been allowed to keep as I have told myself it doesn’t hurt anyone else in my life. However, the time has come to face the facts, it does hurt the people I love…
Because of my food issues, I am a terrible influence on my kids. They end up eating the same junk I do and we get very little exercise due to the exhaustion lack of good nutrition causes. I will certainly not live as long as I should or with the quality of life I deserve if I continue to binge on the fried, sugary, and highly processed foods that make up my entire daily intake. I plan to dive much deeper into the reasons for cutting out these types of foods over the next 31 days.
Please keep coming back to support me this month and I know you will gain something in this process as well. Whether you are a food addict or not, we can all use some help in eating healthier.
If you are not already a subscriber, you may join our community here and never miss a day of this exciting, nerve wracking, and life changing adventure!
I will post every weekday something related to issues with food addiction and how to live a healthier lifestyle. Taking the weekends off from writing (but not my food plan), I will give updates every Monday as to how I am surviving, including wins and losses for the week. As the days progress, the links below will go live and the list will grow.
Thank you so much for your support!
