The Heart of a Bear

I was nine years old the first time I binged and I was put on my first diet at twelve. I wasn't actually over-weight until I was eighteen or nineteen years old.

I was nine years old the first time I binged and I was put on my first diet at twelve. I wasn't actually over-weight until I was eighteen or nineteen years old. That was when I was able to purchase food with my own money and could eat when and what I wanted. I put on about 20 pounds each year until 2 years ago.

In August 2007 and at 670 pounds, I started a binge eating program through my HMO. After that was over, I paid out of pocket for a different eating disorder program. During the last 18 months, I lost about 50 pounds. I realized; however, that I would need to do more in order to be able to lose enough weight to be able to move around and live the life I wanted. So, in January 2009, I joined SparkPeople.
