THIS IS MY STORY OF BREAKING FREE OF FOOD
ADDICTION AND MY WEIGHTLOSS 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.
