This just hit me this morning. I LOVE sweets!! I crave sweets and when I gain weight, it is mostly do to sweets. Cakes, ice cream, candy bars....I realized this morning that to me, sweets represent prosperity. They are extras, not the absolute necessary in a food budget and to me, if I can afford sweets, then I am ok and not lonely, desperate for companions ship which is more the truth for me.
If you want to talk with me about this, please email me at either email address, just know that I am NOT a professional therapist, but I can listen and offer you encouragement.
Give me a heads up please, cos I usually delete items in my spam folder without opening them up.
