Farfelu's Journal, 26 June 2013

I am cleaning out my pantry. You know, to walk into my house all appearances are that I am an average, normal person. Pristine, artfully decorated living room, fastidious kitchen with never an unwashed dish in the sink, but underneath I am a closet hoarder. Why am I having such a hard time throwing out old pantry items I have saved "just in case?" I confess I have actually put BACK expired food. I think hoarding is part of my eating disorder - oh yes I have one. I wouldn't be using fatsecret if food weren't a problem for me. Well, today I am throwing out all those expired, over-sized, or unhealthy foods I have been hoarding. Wish me luck. I am already having misgivings about the #10 size can of sliced black olives that are there JUST IN CASE I have a chance to make tapenade for a crowd.

Congrats and good for you! I hoard food, too (along with lots of other stuff), so you have my sympathy. Hang in there!

I love black olives :) good for you cleaning out! Maybe write down reasons you are doing this. Tape them to the inside of the pantry? Keep one in your purse with your grocery list so you dont buy more than you need or anything unhealthy?

Confession is good for the soul. I think we all struggle with self-awareness. I believe that self-criticism is healthy if it's not over-done. It's hard being human. It's hard to have parts of us wanting different things. I want a smaller, healthy body, but another part of me wants to eat everything in sight. So, it's a battle ...... At least, for me. These journals remind me of the battle .... And when I'm conscious of the battle .... it is only then, when I have some success. Maggie .... You are doing great. Your self-awareness not only helps you, but the rest of us too. Keep it going buddy.

We all do.. here's a thought ...why don't you donate those foods that are not yet expired to a Food Pantry. Will make you feel even better and lots of hungry people will bless you for helping them.
