Hi! I have been struggling with my weight for years--I'm about 30 lbs. overweight. After trying weight loss plans and thinking a lot about my eating patterns, I think I'm totally addicted to junk food---mostly sweets. On my way to work, I always stop somewhere to get a cookie or a cake pop. I feel like I need something in the late afternoon, and I'm never satisfed after a meal unless I have dessert. Fruit or healthy desserts just don't do it---I need chocolate or something sweet or creamy. I know that many of my empty calories are coming from this habit, as well as eating up money on drive thrus or visits to Starbuck's. I think it also contributes to my moodiness.
How can I stop this crazy habit? I think if I were to drastically reduce this addiction, I could get a better control on my weight. I have osteoarthritis of the knee and losing weight would definitely help this.
Does anyone have any experience with this, or any suggestions?
