Cold Turkey

I hit rock bottom today.

“Hi, my name is Pam, and I’m a junkfoodaholic.”

There. I said it. Now let the healing begin.

I don’t know WHAT has gotten into me lately, but I have been eating like shit. I still eat the good stuff, but I’ve just had waaaaaaaay too much of the bad stuff in the mix. A Pop Tart here, an Oreo a handful of Oreos there, a handful half a bag of Doritos here, and then today… good God. A coworker brought a sweet potato cake to work this morning, and I ate like three pieces of that cake. Not all in one sitting, mind you–it was spread out over the course of the workday, not that that makes it any less disgusting. It was just soooooooooo goooooooooooooood. *wiping drool from keyboard*

But that’s it! This has gotten out of hand! My cravings have gotten out of control. No more. Starting right now. It’s my own personal private little lent.

But the alcohol stays. Hey, a girl’s gotta have SOMETHING to hang on to.

  1. THIS (with the substitutions of jalapeno potato chips, Milk Duds and Hershey's Kisses) is *precisely* the reason I run. Otherwise, what's the point? 😉

    I used to be a follower of LMRP's blog as well . . . I cringed hugely with her crash . . .


  2. Oh, you were??? Well, I'm sure that didn't do anything to help your fear, huh??? 🙂

    We friended on fb after she stopped blogging. She looks GREAT now. I'm thinking she said that the surgery she just had a couple weeks ago was her second-to-last. She's had to have bone grafts and all sorts of painful stuff done before she can get her permanent implants. SUCH a strong girl!

    (Are you reading this, AJ? :P)


  3. You will survive, we are women we always do! Just look the other way, dont take the sweets TOTALLY outta the picture that's be a sin, and when you taste one you'd loss your mind.. Yum, sorbet, I make this super mashed up banana “ice cream” I just smush a bunch of bananers (that have seen more yellow days) and pop it in the freezer and BAM yum town!


  4. Hi Pammy,
    The first step is admitting that you have a problem…junkfoodaholic….you are so funny! I get the same way at times! Some days everything that is so bad for us looks so good:( Tomorrow is a new day…you will get back on track. Hang in there!


  5. Everything in moderation…right?

    I eat too much chocolate. I was super successful in giving candy up for lent, but probably have more than made up for my lent since. Ahh well 40 days without candy is really, really long. And CVS had Easter Candy after Easter for 75% off.

    Something that really helps me is measuring out how many chips I want to eat, etc. Personally, portion size seems to work better for me than eliminating foods from my diet. And yeah I've never lented alcohol… soda with the exception of mixers though 😉


  6. Ugh, I know all too well what that is about. I've been craving twinkies since watching Zombieland months ago, and I finally caved and bought a box. Months of twinkie cravings resulted in an absolute twinkie binge. It's disgusting and wonderful at the same time.
