A friend of mine who is also COE remarked that she was going to begin overeaters anonymous. She's been reading a book called Overcoming Overeating where my friend says:
"...my book tells me that any binge food, such as cookies, I have to go and buy 6 packs of them from the supermarket, they say that overeaters are the ones with empty fridges and cupboards...I have to train myself to believe that they will always be there that I do not need to eat them all at once. If I eat the whole pack I must not get angry and just replace them the next day. It is a good concept and does work I am just not quite there with it cos I just eat more and more cookies!"
Well damn, so would I! Geez, would you leave a heroin junkie in the same house with six fixes in the cupboard for them? A pack of cigarettes for one not smoking? It's a mental idea! It's downright cruel - sets that person up for failure. It's rubbish, I say, RUBBISH! Besides, I'm COE and I have cupboards bulging with food. I mean where's the logic in saying someone who eats all the time wouldn't have food in their house?? So here you are - a bunch of pictures of my tiny, messy and overflowing kitchen.
Top cupboard (with stains that cannot be removed)
The counter (which is tidy now, but that's all the workspace I have)
Tonight's dinner(chicken and stir-fry veg with sweet soy and spring onion sauce)
So, definitely not empty. Not even very tidy - but I try. I don't have a lot of storage space, but I am promised a new kitchen next year so That'll be nice. For the new owners. Seems like everytime we get a new kitchen we move house.
Could anyone find the sweets??
