If you've been around these parts for a while, you are probably familiar with the term "food addict."
For a pretty long while I've been very comfortable using that term to describe myself, or more accurately, using the term "processed food addict."
But I've witnessed many people in the community who are very bothered by these terms. At first, I kind of blew off their opinions, but recently I've had a chance to really think about their reservations.
I started to toy with the idea of dropping the label for myself, based on some reading that I've been doing (Women, Food and God by Geneen Roth) and working with the concept of The Law of Attraction (inspired by our work in the HGK private book club with the book The 30-Day Sobriety Solution by Dave Andrews and Jack Canfield).
I'm not saying that I have the answers, I'm just saying that I think this is a conversation I need to be engaged in.
