Changing my life one choice at a time

For so many years and for reasons I am just beginning to be able to articulate, I never felt good enough or worthy enough for much in life.

I grew up in a lot of pain emotionally and used food as my comfort... and my comfort became my punishment as I became fatter and could not wear cute clothes and could not do all the things I wanted to do in life.

For so many years and for reasons I am just beginning to be able to articulate, I never felt good enough or worthy enough for much in life.

I grew up in a lot of pain emotionally and used food as my comfort... and my comfort became my punishment as I became fatter and could not wear cute clothes and could not do all the things I wanted to do in life.

I felt awful about myself. I had so much control over myself....why not something as simple as the food I put in my mouth?

I can't remember how, but almost 3 years ago I stumbled upon Sparkpeople's website. I enjoyed the website, but just wasn't ready for change. I have spent the last 3 years on and off this site.

I would like to tell you an "event" or some magic lightbulb came on for me, but for me it was more of an awareness....like someone had lit a fire inside my soul. An urge to eat less and move more came over me. In May 2011, I began to take my life seriously and have been here faithfully ever since.
