Donut Envy

When I was active in my disease, I would look at the long line of cars in front of me at the coffee shop drive-thrus and wonder how so many people could order a coffee, nothing more, and drive away.  It made absolutely no sense to me whatsoever.  I mean, while you’re there, you might as well “tank-up,” right?  Specifically I remember, at times when I was feeling especially depressed and ashamed about what I was about to do, trying to imagine what it must be like to be able to purposely go to a place that you KNOW is selling all kinds of stuff you love to eat, money-in-hand, and just not “feeling like” having anything.  And ya know what?  I could never do it.  My mind could not wrap itself around even the possibility of not eating foods that were so accessible.


Over the past two years, I have been able to go to drive-thrus and just get a coffee without even one single thought of getting food!  This may sound like a small thing, but to me it is such a miracle!  Just one of the many promises of the program that have come true in my life!   “It works if you work it!”  Thank you, HP!
