Me vs. This pizza
Tuesday, September 13, 2016
My children had their pizza for lunch today and have finished to go play, I'm left staring at it.
Normally, me vs. the pizza usually means, can I eat all of this without someone noticing? Usually I'd sit here and read and polish it off. Usually I would do that and feel guilty and mad at myself.
Today I'm waiting out the craving, the urge, that compulsion. Then I will get up, get a plastic bag, and put the left overs in the fridge. I had chicken and broccoli. I ate and was content. I am not hungry. No, I am just facing a compulsion to eat. And it is not easy. Instead of giving into it, I'm writing about it, and taking its power away.
