Comfort Zone

I have a sweet tooth beyond your wildest imagination, and as a once-obese person, I still battle my weight because of it. But if there’s one thing in the whole wide world that I could eat over and over again, it would be a Krispy Kreme doughnut. My favorite is creme-filled. It’s the texture, the freshness, the taste. They’re better than sex! Every time I pass by the place, I stop. (Fortunately, my boyfriend doesn’t have a sweet tooth—if he did, I’d be as big as a house again.) I usually get two creme-filled doughnuts, one original glazed and an ice-cold glass of milk. With a Krispy Kreme doughnut in my mouth, stress, anxiety and moodiness melt away. I’ve given up cigarettes, coffee and alcohol, so this is my one remaining vice. I know that when it comes to my health, they’re horrible for me, but indulgence is part of therapy and life, as long as there’s moderation.
