It's Frankly Friday... and frankly, I think you should sign up for the Christmas Swap if you haven't. :) Click the button for all the info. Today is last day for sign ups so get it done!


And now on to the real Frankly Friday business.

Let's talk about food.

Food addiction.

I am a food addict.

It's bad guys. I eat all the time. I eat for my meals. I eat when I'm bored. I eat when I'm happy, angry or sad. I eat when I'm celebrating. I eat when I fail. I eat at night while watching tv. I eat when I'm hungry. I eat when I'm not hungry.

I. Eat.

I'm an addict.

I need help.

This has been such a constant struggle for me. Food is my go-to thing. I like food. Food tastes good. Food is fun to eat.

But it is not good to eat like I eat.

This is a problem. Food does not and can not make me happy. So why do I always turn to it?

Here's the thing... almost a year ago I felt like God was asking me to give up sugar for a year. So I did. I haven't had sugar. But I've had sugar substitutes lately and I'm starting to feel like I'm cheating. Yes, I am doing what was asked of me... I'm not eating sugar. I'm glad I'm not eating sugar. BUT... I think it's really about breaking the cycle of comfort eating and learning to let God be my comfort in those times. Learn to let HIM fill me up.

While I have been successful in not eating sugar I have failed miserably at eating well and breaking the bad habits.

I do not eat sugar... but that does not mean I eat well.

So there ya have it... the ugliness of my food addiction. I feel like I have hit a low and when I hit a low the only way to go is up and I feel that I have taken a step or two. Now to continue in the right direction...
