The Adventures of a Thirty-Something Teacher and Musician

My name's Kathryn and I'm 30 years old. I have my B.A. in Music. I can work a bit in 2 other languages, French and Italian. I also have my certificate to teach ESL for adults. Right now, I work in a language school in Boston and I feel pretty darn successful but it hasn't always been that way. 6 years ago I was at my heaviest, somewhere in the 220's. I was afraid to leave the house, thanks to an anxiety disorder. But then something changed in me. I decided to go to school for music. ...

Right now, I work in a language school in Boston and I feel pretty darn successful but it hasn't always been that way. 6 years ago I was at my heaviest, somewhere in the 220's. I was afraid to leave the house, thanks to an anxiety disorder. But then something changed in me. I decided to go to school for music. Started walking off my frustration rather than eating through it. And weight started to come off! Don't get me wrong, I've had ups and downs since then. And I'm here to keep the good streak going!

I see that awhile back you joined the Living Binge Free team. Welcome!We concentrate more on learning to eat sanely in all situations with all foods rather than directly on weight loss. Over time, we can learn to be happy with and even prefer lot less manufactured food and less food in general. I've put in over 4 years and lost about 40 lbs., about 21% of my former weight. It wasn't easy every second, but it's been totally worth it!

Wandered over to your page after reading your post on the message board. I see you did join the LBF team right away! May you find lots of good insights there! I know I did. The leader, Oolala, writes very interesting blogs and posts about how she overcame her disordered eating. She's a big fan of the 'No S diet'. That is not for me, but I like the basic idea of the No S. 'Common sense', mostly! Making life more simple.
I just reposted some stuff I wrote about dealing with emotional eating in my blog. Wishing you the best of luck! AND wisdom, of course! emoticon
