A horrible incident happened to me when I was 8 years old that changed me.
As a result of that incident, I began to eat. And, looking back now, I see that I used eating as a form of protection.
How many people have done that I wonder?
I am 43 years old. And I have dieted for most of my life.
I have went as long as 10 years staying on track and being thin, but that was a very long time ago. My goal now, is not so much to get thin, but to get healthy.
I have kept a diary for most of my life and I have looked back to see where I get off track. It is when I am stressed and overwhelmed. I comfort myself with food. I don't want to do that anymore.
I want to take control of my life. I want to eat to live, Not live to eat.
My self esteem has suffered over the years and I really want to feel good about myself. I would like to know if there are others out there who feel this way.
I will not withdraw inside myself anymore.
I am a strong, powerful woman. And I will keep telling myself that until I believe it.
For all of you who have battled your weight all of your life. Let's do this together. I need the company.
I am going to use this site for my journey. I will be posting about my progress, and healthy recipes. I will also add sites that are all about getting healthy. Please e-mail me with any questions or recipes you would like to share.
P.s Be encouraged
