Hollywood Addict

I am going to surprise you,I am an addict,and I got that way from eating sugar.Don’t laugh it started with a little extra candy after a meal.As my career was getting more successful in Hollywood,I produced TV programing about movies for local TV stations across the country,I spent more and more time on film sets where there was lots of sugared treats.I just ate and ate whatever was at the craft service table [treats provided for crew on sets] and before I was knew it,I had gained 40 pounds.As the weight came on my behavior became more erratic,more demanding of my crew,rude to people and sometimes angry,I wonder If I was really angry at me for self sabotaging my life,but I did not stop.This went on for over 7 years until I weighted 209 pounds and lost most of my business.Help arrived when I went into a 12 step for overeating .Besides a food plan that included portion control it also made me give up sugar and white flour.And then I detoxed for 3 weeks which made me aware that sugar was more than a sweet treat, for me it was my drug of choice.I lost the weight regained my business and found that I am not alone.
