My Name is Kristy McCammon
THIS IS A STORY OF MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY
Most of my life has been spent being overweight and food obsessed. Unfortunately, food became my friend and comfort at a very young age. This set up a lifetime of dependence on food for every emotion; sadness, joy, fear, excitement, happiness, anger, boredom, chaos – you name the emotion and food was the answer. I was in a battle with food daily. I was either white knuckling my way to stay out of the food or I was overeating and bingeing – there was no in between. No matter what I tried, I simply could not let go of sugar and flour laden junk food. It had truly become a stronghold in my life that kept me enslaved to food. The idea of moderation always sounded ideal – just one piece, just one bowl, just one slice, just one….. that never worked for me. Once I had JUST ONE, my brain was actively demanding more. I was in a place of desperation and my weight was the highest it had ever been.
