The letter Jacki Monaco wrote was fraught with emotion:

“Dear food,” it began.

“You have given me a reason to live, a cotton candy cloud to land on, a spaghetti pool to swim in, a sweet and sometimes sour pat on the back after long days. You have been my dearest friend and my most painful enemy. My love, my hate, my utter confusion.”

It’s a letter Monaco still has, though she penned it nearly two years ago at a weight loss retreat. She reads it when she’s angry or upset and is starting to think, again, that food can fix whatever is bothering her.

“I was married to food for so long,” she said. “That was the only relationship that mattered to me. Every food has its own story.”
