mothers little helper

Tomorrow night on 20/20, on ABC, there is going to be a story about moms with alcohol or drug addictions. This got me to thinking about our vices, and wondering how many of you out there view your weight as a disorder? I guess we have sympathy for drug addicts and alcoholics, We even give a little room to cheating men by saying the have a sex addiction. But we, the overweight, do we have an addiction, or are we just fat and lazy?
They call it rehab when you go to get help with an addiction, but if you go to get help with losing weight, they call it a fat farm.
I never thought that I ate to hide my feelings, or to help get me thru a difficult situation. I dont hide behind closed doors at night and shove cookies in my mouth. I guess I have always thought my problem was just fast food and not exercising. Do we have addictions? And I am sure some do, but is it recognized by the public?
Well that said, I havent walked or worked out in 3 days when I had my nephew here, but hes back home now and this evening, I have to get back into my routine. I was up 1 lb on the scale this morning.
