Six years ago I couldn’t indulge without purging. Indulging in my mind, meant too many calories and that meant gaining weight and that meant getting “fat.” And I didn’t want any of that. So indulging meant bingeing and bingeing meant purging.

Looks like there's more than an Avocado there…perhaps its the Jalapeño Chips? Mmmm. Chips and Guacamole. Now I'm hungry.
