Thank you for the spark Goodie and for the compliment on being positive. The compliment for my being positive should be given to The Lord because He lead me to the tools I needed to change my journey from a struggle to a journey of peace and being positive. I found a way to release the struggle by embracing that inner part of me that was creating that inner voice that says "Eat that. You know you want it." The voice had a positive intent for me because it wanted me to eat and gain to protect me from danger and pain that occurred in my childhood. Now when it speaks, I only have to respond, "Hey, it's okay. I know you want that but I've got this and we'll be okay." Believe it or not, the voice simply stops. No drama nothing it just stops. For the past 2 months, I've been free from compulsive eating. That's what makes me so positive.
