Seems like there might be something to this...Maybe more than carb addiction, or genetics...there probably is a psychological aspect as well.
I am still thinking...This is not a complete list...it's more like a maybe list...but here goes....
* Protection in cold weather
*Stores estrogen (keeps you younger)
* Substitute for real life issues
*Reason to not be fully engaged in living
Why I don't need it:
*I can buy beautiful clothing to keep me warm
*I will look and feel younger if I slim down
*I can deal with problems a day at a time
*I want to live my best life and conquer my self esteem issues
