Confessions of an addict...

Ok it is time for me to confess...

I am an addict.

There I said it! Luckily my addiction is seasonal, so I have about half a year where I get to detox and 12-step myself through my withdrawals, otherwise I would really be in trouble. But come spring I am drooling and shaking in anticipation and I dive right back in where I left off as soon as my obsession becomes available again. Sigh. It's pathetic really. I should have more self control. But there seems to be no cure, and my craving does not abate....

I wonder if there is rehab for this kind of addiction???

So what is my addiction? WATERMELON! I literally can not get enough of the stuff. I am the only one who eats it in my household and I can quite literally eat it until I can't fit any more in. I can easily eat 2 whole watermelons per week - or more maybe?!? ON MY OWN. And not little ones either. (I bought one on Monday and another yesterday...)

Don't tell me it is healthy, it is not, not in these quantities! ;) Today and yesterday it is pretty much all I have eaten all day. Both days I have had 2x 1l lunch boxes FULL of it for lunch. My tummy is bloated from the stuff!

YUM!!! YUM!!! YUM!!! YUM!!!

LOL I just remembered that I have blogged about this before... see it has been going on a for a while. I see back then it was one a week... now I am doing 2. Oh dear! My summer handbag is a watermelon too I am using that one at the moment actually!


  1. Oh LOL I love that your handbag screams fetish too!

  2. i knew exactly what you were going to say when i saw the headline! LOL.
    Strangely enough i havent eaten much watermelon this summer. And remember my warning to you as per last not eat before a run! LOL

  3. OH LOL Jane!!!!!!!!

    I cant eat too much of it but I suppose there are worse things to be addicted too!

  4. I like watermelon but can't describe myself as an addict.

  5. Just be careful. Aparently Watermelon has an incredibly high gluten index.
