Love is the desire to see unnecessary suffering ameliorated
Truth is the handmaiden of love
Dialogue is the pathway to truth
Humility is recognition of personal insufficiency and the willingness to learn
To learn is to die voluntarily and be born again, in great ways and small
So speech must be untrammeled
So that dialogue can take place
So that we can all humbly learn
So that truth can serve love
So that suffering can be ameliorated
So that we can all stumble forward to the Kingdom of God.
– Jordan B. Peterson

Somewhere in March 2020, here in Australia, things were locked down due to Covid 19.
This massive change triggered my over-eating obsession. Every day (lunch time), I would buy a large ammount of food, and gorge myself.
I first noticed the obsession with food around age 19. I was addicted to chocolate and would eat large ammouts each day. This also included other unhealthy foods as well as chocolate.
This problem was a three fold issue…
1. Addiction to drugs and alcohol.
2. Addiction to over-eating.
3. Sex and love addiction.
All three were out of control big time. They would also effect all aspects of my life.
I vividly remember me as a young child, being obsessed with sweets. If I heard a wrapper, I would come running to see if it was sweets. My family used to laugh at me because of my behavior.
So back to the lockdown….i felt like I had nothing to look forward to, and that’s when I turned to food.
I’ve put on about 1o to 15 kilograms!!!
My correct weight should be between 80 and 85 kilograms.
So I’m finally addressing the issue head on.
I fast between breakfast and diner, thus avoiding the huge meal at lunch time. This seems to be working, for now, so I will stick to it.
I’ve heard that other people are also putting on weight with the lockdown…which is very understandable. It’s a stressful time for all of us.
By writing this, I’m hoping that it will help with my commitment.
