Doctor Doctor Give Me the News, I've Got a Bad Case of Lovin' You

There are a few things in life that I absolutely hate, mainly dishonest or deceiving people, bad weather, and being hungry and having no food. There are also lots of things in life that I absolutely love, like my family, friends, the church, learning new things, getting lost in a good book, deep conversations, long runs, good food, and spending the entire day at the beach. But just recently, I realized I also have a few obsessions...and they need help. So, any advice you can offer me on how to overcome these obsessions will be greatly appreciated.
The obsessions include (but are not limited to):
1. Dark chocolate. Not milk, not white, just dark, and I'll eat anything that has it in it
2. Any dessert...especially if it's made with dark chocolate. I always want dessert after every meal I eat (even breakfast)
3. Food. Even if I just had a big meal, I'm always ready to eat again (that's not normal)
4. Sleep...as soon as I wake up, I'm ready for a nap again. I think I'm capable of hibernating, which is a new feeling for me. Normally I don't/can't sleep
5. Chips and Salsa...it will satisfy me for any meal and besides dark chocolate, It's all I ever want
6. Working out. My day doesn't feel complete unless I've done it. Plus, with how much I like to eat...enough said
7. Spandex. If I could wear them all day long, everyday of the week, everywhere I went, I would. They're just so darn comfortable
It's kind of sad that almost all of my "obsessions" have to do with food. So, maybe I answered my own question on how to overcome these obsessions...it's called self-control. Maybe that's where my struggles lie.

Maybe it runs in our genes, because I have an obsession with basically all of those except two of them. I wish I was more obsessed with working out, but 3 days a week is usually about all I can manage. Also, I don't own any spandex besides my swimming suits. You should defintiely work on that -- I don't know a whole lot of people who even look good in spandex, let alone are obsessed with wearing it. :)

I like food too it sucks huh, and it sucks how we spend so much money on food! It's okay though we just have to learn how to control ourselves!

Amy, you are so funny. Josh says that wanting dessert after every meal is a Thatcher thing. And I don't know what to say about spandex...the last time I wore spandex (besides working out) was in the 7th grade, when I used to wear black stretch pants every day...I had 7 pair. Looking back now, I imagine the other kids thought I wore the same pair of pants every day.
