What does your favorite food mean to you? Be personal and intimate, and really descriptive. What sensation and pleasure is it giving you? My addiction was ice cream. I just couldn’t live without having at least a pint, or preferably a half gallon, every night. It took a long time to solve the mystery of what ice cream meant to me. Finally, with spiritual practice and counseling, I was able to see that I connected it with my mother. See, Mom and I used to sneak out every night after dinner, and hit several local ice cream parlors. It was our way of connecting with each other–binging on ice cream.

Explore how your favorite food is connected with others, with pleasures, or with needs. Dig deep in your personal well of experience; it will be worth your attention, and may help you unlock the mystery of your weight concerns.
