MY BINGE EATING DISORDER JOURNEY

Since I became 'suddenly' fat about 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. I have yo-yo dieted, binged, joined every weight loss organization out there and took dangerous weight loss medications. You name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me seriously ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!. I realized far too late that my obesity was a ...
Since I became 'suddenly' fat about 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. I have yo-yo dieted, binged, joined every weight loss organization out there and took dangerous weight loss medications. You name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me seriously ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!. I realized far too late that my obesity was a symptom and the real disease was in my mind. This time, while I deal with my eating disorder and my health in a mindful way, I am concentrating on the the cause of my obesity. It is a long journey. So far, I have lost 80 lbs by dealing with the issues driving me to eat and NOT even trying to diet! I don't have a specific goal anymore because I now know that THE JOURNEY IS THE GOAL. I am seeking to connect with others on a similar journey.

You are right that an eating disorder needs to be dealt with or a person will regain the weight after having weight loss surgery. Robert on his channel HealingMagic on YouTube teaching EFT Tapping is a wonderful help, since obesity is a factor of many issues. EFT Tapping is a good tool.

Most people don't want to admit that Sugar is as addictive as cocaine, but it is a "drug of choice" and as Dr. Mercola says on his web site "Processed foods are full of Flavor Enhancers that make us crave the food and buy the product."
Drinking soda instead of water is another serious issue for obese people. When I first joined Sparks seven years ago, I logged what I was eating and realized I drank 1500 calories worth of soda, juice and milk each day and I cut that out first. I drink koolaid with Stevia now (NuNatural Brand has no aftertaste) and I have lots of water with lemon.
