    Hello, my name is Denise and I'm addicted to food.

    It only took me 45 years to learn that no one dies of hunger between lunch and dinner.

    I've surrendered 75 pounds and maintained that loss for over ten years. But, fat or thin, supersize or average, I'm still—and will always be—addicted to food.

    Some of you may think, "She calls that addiction? I'm a real addict, hooked on drugs or alcohol or gambling; what wimp considers eating an addiction?" And you'd be almost right: I haven't lost my kids, my home or my job; I haven't broken the law or been incarcerated or ruined my life.

    Yet...

    A recovering drug addict can go cold turkey on drugs and alcohol. A recovering gambler can avoid those places and people that trigger your addiction. But I still have to eat. Three times a day, I have to face my addiction.
