My strange addiction...

Anonymous

I am addicted to... cake frosting. Pillsbury vanilla to be exact. I eat about three tubs a week. Oddly enough, I started trying to lose weight and have been successful, despite still eating cake frosting. Calories in vs. calories out I guess.

No one knows. I hide it. I run out to the grocery store for whatever random item and eat it in the car. I keep it in the center console. Sometimes I bring it into the laundry room... because God knows no one is going in there!

I'm seriously addicted. I crave it whenever I'm stressed... and that's pretty often. What's worse is I hate the way I feel after I binge on it. I'm so irritable from the sugar overload and the red 40 dye.

I'm not super overweight or anything. Maybe 20lbs away from my pre-baby weight (after baby # 3).

Aren't you scared of diabetes?

This can't be good. You could end up with diabetes. If you looked up the sugar intake for a woman, you'd see you're exceeding it. Can you at least cut down?

YES!! There was a period where I'd feel a little groggy after I ate it. I stopped for a little while but eventually caved. I don't get the groggy feeling now.

It's going to have to be an all or nothing thing. I'm hoping by posting this someone (or many someones) will scare me enough to stop.

I'm pretty sure if it weren't socially unacceptable, at parties I'd eat only the frosting and leave the cake.

Just spend some time on Google and look up women's daily sugar intake, stuff like that, it will scare you. But I know what you mean, I love vanilla frosting, but I never eat it. Maybe if it's on a cupcake at a birthday party, but I just can't let myself go nuts. Also look up the evils of sugar.
