Being a Food Junkie Isn't the End of the World

by therinamartins

I love food.

Yeah, I know. Typical food lover here! But how many of us love it , but hide the truth because we want to fit in?

I eat because I like to eat.

But people look down on me because of it. What?! Why?! Am I inhuman to love the way food tastes, its textures, and endless loop and slips that make my tastebuds burst in ecstasy?

I love it. I cherish it. I savour it.

Is it a crime? Is it an offense to have a soft spot for food?

Food was once considered an art.

Today, it is considered a hazard to beauty. Beauty? Is beauty more important than life? Than living a good, tasty life?

Who are you to say I can't?

Is it your body, per say? Do you have to maintain it? Does it make you anxious to get it up to "scale?"

I know how far I can go.

And i know what my own beauty scale is. So please....

Don't ruin the pleasure of others.

Let me indulge in my love while I may.

I know when I go too far.

And I promise I won't. But please don't dictate what we can and can't eat.

That's for me to know.

And you to find out on your own body.

You wrote this for me. Thank you! My soft spot for food is between my chin and my bellybutton.
