My Long-Term Obsession with Food

I love food. I mean LOVE it. I don't always eat just because I'm hungry and it is something I have to do to stay alive. I eat when I'm happy, when I'm sad, when I'm bored, when I'm excited, when I'm lonely-you name it! Food has always been tied to my emotions.

And now, of course, it's caught up with me and something must be done! When I started my diet two weeks ago, my BMI was 28, which is overweight. Over the past two weeks, I have been eating healthy and exercising, and my BMI is now a 25, but my goal is a 20.

But the point is, I'm eating healthy, I'm feeling better...yet ALL I can think about is food! I try to focus on healthy stuff, like new recipes I want to try that are going to help me with my goal. However, most of the time it is about the food that I should probably never eat again. I decided that it may help me if I write this and compose a list of those foods I have been dying for!

So, here is my list of foods that I wish I were eating right now!

-Big Mac
-"Real" French Fries (I've been slicing taters fry style and baking in the oven)
-Fish and Chips
-Beer Battered ANYTHING
-Fried Chicken
-Baked Mac n' Cheese
-Arby's Roast Beef
-Anything from Krystal's
-Wendy's Spicy [Fried] Chicken Sandwich
-Pad Thai
-A Big Hot Fudge Brownie Sundae
-Canned Spaghetti (This is one of my favorite things in the world)
-Cheesecake-Chocolate Chip Bars
-Chicken Fingers
-Dove Dark Chocolate
-A Special "ABC" from El Torrero (it's two chicken or beef burritos covered in cheese dip and topped with lettuce, tomato, guacamole, and sour cream)
-"Real" Sour Cream (FF just isn't the same!)
-Golden Corral Rolls
-And many, many, many, MANY more, but that's just to name a few!
