As most of you know, I am on an elimination diet. It is KILLING me. I crave chocolate - milk chocolate to be exact. But I can't have it. I crave ice cream - Chunky Monkey to be exact. But I can't have it. I crave cheese - mozzarella cheese to be exact. But I can't have it.
Because I am being denied of so many of my favorite foods, I have had to find a few new things to take their places. I am now addicted to Coca Cola, cereal bars, and tortilla chips. I don't really mind the cereal bars or the tortilla chips, but the Coke is really bothering me.
When I wake up in the morning, I need a Coke. When th kids go down for a nap, I need a Coke. When I eat dinner, I need a Coke. When the wind blows, I need a Coke.
I realize that Coke is just a bunch of empty calories, and that this addiction is doing nothing to help me lose weight. I realize that all of this extra sugar is horrible for my teeth. I realize that Coke is super expensive, and is making our grocery bill outrageous.
But it just tastes so fucking good! I can't stop drinking it. I am hopeless...
