Quitting Food

I used to think life would be easier if eating were optional. Ten years old and struggling with food and self-esteem issues, I'd think about how great it would be if I didn't have to worry about what I ate, or how much I should be having.

It would be like an old-time ad. Having trouble with your weight? No problem, just stop eating! Use the time and money you once spent on groceries and cooking and do something else. Quit food just like you would quit smoking, easy as (not eating any) pie.  

 Now though, I’m glad that I still get to eat. I accept that I can’t eat whatever I went, whenever I want it, but it's pretty lucky that I don't need to cut any foods out of my life, and I don't need to have that "last [insert delicious food] ever."
