After a few weeks of being on the really strict diet, I am finding myself pining over old foods less…sort of. Or I just don’t fixate on them as much. It’s still really hard to be around them at work etc.
However, I attribute a lot of these feelings as part of what I’ve discovered to be a food addiction. I’m still a little in denial, but I have been to a few Overeaters Anonymous meetings and really identified with the folks there. I too was always skinny and could eat whatever I wanted, until my health started failing over it.
I look at the success stories on this forum as proof that yes, one day we will be able to have “normal” foods again – just not eat the way we used to. That is, yes, have a bagel, but don’t have them every day…or go to Starbucks, but not every day.
I’m just taking this as an opportunity to love my body and make peace with the fact that we are stuck together until the end, so we might as well be nice to each other. We’ve been in a war for as long as I can remember, with me shoving donuts and chips in my face and wondering why I had chronic diarrhea at age ten…etc…
It sucks, this thing is a nightmare, but the only way to make it better is to have a better attitude about it and look on the positive side. And remember that eventually, we will feel better and the crazy strict diet and million pills a day will be reduced to eating sensibly, relaxing and enjoying special meals with our family and friends, and just taking some vitamins and probiotics that everyone probably should be taking anyway :p
