Cuban Sandwich

I had my semi-monthly acupuncture appointment. The decision was made to treat me for stress, as always, and food addiction. Okay, I can work with that. I ended up with a multitude of needles in my ears, not the most comfortable of processes. Once they were in though, a transformation came over me. I could feel myself losing my appetite. It seemed as though my stomach were shrinking inside my body and I felt more relaxed than I remember ever being during this process. When it was over I skipped my usual Starbuck’s beverage and drank down 20 oz. of water on the way home.

My euphoria was not to last. An hour later I had consumed an enormous Cuban Pork Sandwich complete with caramelized onions and jalapeno. Oh, it was orgasmic!!!! Then I took my child to have Gelato at the local shop where true Italians make it for our consuming pleasure. What was funny was I never really was hungry during any of it. It was more about the experience than the food. This was a first for me. I love food, the taste the smell and the texture. I crave food, but today I ate to eat. Now its night and I’m not grazing in the fridge as I normally would at this hour. Maybe this acupuncture treatment will be successful. I’ve got my fingers and toes crossed.
