Break-up with food !
I was unprepared for the gush of feelings I went through the day before Optifast !
I was grieving the break up with comfort food big time !
I am still a little shocked and embarrassed by how emotional I was lol It was like the feeling of getting ready to go to the funeral of my best friend and comfort - thought this time, I had an underlying feeling of wanting to push ahead and go through it ...
So bizarre to me that I didnt expect it - I know myself pretty well, and still it surprised me !
Such is life. Always full of surprises
I goooshed and boo-hoo'd about it and then, eventually and with great relief I walked away ... so long abusive, back stabbing, jerk of a comfort - AND don't come back !!! lol
In honour of my "angels" wise words - I hereby and officially FLIP you the BIRD comfort food!
Damn that feels good !

I was one to always have to have "the last one", be it pizza, junk food, sweets, etc. So I know where you're coming from. But I've also considered the role of addiction - alcoholics and smokers can avoid their addictive substances completely, whereas food addicts must face theirs numerous times daily!! We must eat to survive!
I like your approach to comfort food - abusive, back-stabbing. I need to think of those foods in that light. Not all food is our enemy, so I'll just kick those comfort foods (those nasty beasts!) right out the door!
Bring it on!!
