If you had asked me the question last year “are you addicted to anything?” I probably would have said “nothing” but secretly thought chocolate.
I have always had a weakness for chocolate – Cadburys especially. If I think about it now I had a weakness for biscuits, cakes and sweets too.
If I wanted it I ate it without thinking of the consequences, which was bad health and piling on the weight.
I always thought that addictions were drugs and alcohol related but you can get addicted to lots of things. Even exercise (that’s never gonna happen with me) or hobbies or, for me, certain food.
In January when I was last on the detox I had to practically lock away the chocolate, biscuits, cakes and sweets – all things I was addicted too.
I came into this detox without the addiction to all the food that are bad for you, but over the last few months I have found that I was starting to rely on oats. They were on my food list so I was allowed them but it came to a point that I was having to have some after every meal.
Today I have been really hungry and all I have wanted to do was pinch some oat cakes out of the cupboard. When I started this detox I felt that I didn’t have as much motivation to do it as I did last time. I think it’s because I am so much lighter now and my desperation isn’t as great as it was.
I am amazed that I have got this far. Seeing the weight go down every day has definitely helped me to stay motivated. Only 5 more days left and then I can have my oats back.
