"Food Sobriety"

Once in a while--OK, more often than I should--I check out some very intense weight loss blogs.

Today, I spent a few minutes reading a blogger who proudly announced how many months she has maintained "food sobriety." If it works for her, it's not my business. She seems to be happy. But there are so many people for whom "perfect eating" becomes a constant source of self-hate, because most people just can't stay perfect all the time. I feel for them deeply.

Food: the new danger. Gag me with a spoon (what an appropriate metaphor!).


  1. Food is a tool...and a pleasure. To deny yourself pleasure when you eat is sad, because life is for health and indulge occasionally. Extremes on either end are limiting and dangerous.

  2. I'm with you on this Christine.

  3. I'm really, super happy. Thank you!!! :)

    1. If you're happy, Karen, that's all that counts!
