I'll be open and honest here. I'm having emotional food issues.
You know what I'm referring to, don't you? It's when you eat junk food because you believe it will somehow take away the emotional low you are experiencing. This is something that I had overcome months ago, but it has made a comeback in the last couple of weeks.
Did I ever tell you about being tagged The Donut Girl? This nickname was attached to me over a year ago when I shared a story in my First Place Bible study about my weakness for donuts. They had been my nemesis to weight loss. I could smell them way in the back of the grocer's dairy department, even when the bakery department was a mile away. Yes, it was that bad. So one of the ladies in my study tagged me The Donut Girl. But I had overcome that.
Well, The Donut Girl? She's back. With a vengeance.
I have to drive past a grocery store almost every time I go out. Do you know what I think about as I drive by? Donuts! I don't even buy donuts at that store, but I know that's where they can be purchased. And I want one. It's a good thing I'm just lazy enough that I don't want to go to the trouble of parking my car, walking into the store, and buying one on my way to wherever I'm going.
Oh, what a mess I am.
