Oh, ice cream how I love thee!
Oh how I wish I could enjoy a single serving of ice cream and be able to walk away happy. With a big, happy grin on my face like the little one above. But I can't! Ice cream is my addiction. My heroin. My drug of choice. When times get tough I turn to ice cream and unfortunately it goes right through the band with no problems and so I can eat, eat, eat with no problems. I have been struggling lately. Struggling in my mind. I miss being able to eat so much I was uncomfortable. I miss certain foods. I miss being able to drown my sorrows in food. I miss a lot and need some help. I need to find a therapist that knows about food addiction because this is an addiction. I am unhappy with so many things in my life but I don't know that there is a valid reason for the unhappiness. Marriage, work, family, my body, just plain life and everything in-between! Oh don't worry, I am on Prozac but lately it isn't working so well. I am depressed. And it sucks!! Big time! I used to eat myself into a coma when I was depressed and then just sleep but I can't do that anymore. I want to...oh trust me, I want to eat! So...how do I find a therapist that specializes in food addiction? My surgeon's office doesn't have a recommendation and there isn't anyone locally, I have looked. Please tell me this is normal and will pass. Please tell me this is just one of the "stages" of weight loss. I am so hoping it is.
