No such thing as a “food addict” my foot! As I sit here I am thinking about what I can eat. I start to get up and go to the kitchen . . . then I sit back down again. I’M NOT HUNGRY!! But I DO want to eat. But I won’t. Because I’m on the road to recovery! Minute by minute, day by day. So THIS minute, I am not going to eat.
I’m no expert on food addiction or weight loss or ANYTHING, really. The term “expert witness,” in legal terms, means “a person who is a specialist in a subject, often technical . . . the expert is qualified by evidence of his/her expertise, training and special knowledge . . .” So, I guess, technically, I AM an expert and could testify in court! I have tons of expertise and special knowledge of being overweight! I AM a specialist in the subject! So, guess that means that if you ever need an expert witness to testify about what it feels like to be overweight and the emotional pain and garbage that goes with it, I’m your girl!! But then, there are probably millions of us “experts” out there.
So, hang in there all you experts! Today is a new day, and there are a lot of minutes left in this day to conquer!
