A New Journey

When I first started on Spark it was 2008, and I weighed less than I do now. The trouble was, I was extremely bulimic, and had been for about 28 years.
With the help of Spark, I was able to quit vomiting-which was something I never even thought was possible.
My hope was to quit vomiting, (I also exercised obsessively),lose my excess weight, be skinny and live happily ever after.
Yeah, right.
Of all my addictions, food is the oldest and the root of them all.

Yeah, right.
Of all my addictions, food is the oldest and the root of them all.

Since I quit vomiting, my relationship with food has progressively escalated into free for all compulsive eating.
The obsessive exercise came to a halt after I hurt my back in a car accident and then hurt my knee playing tennis to such an extent that I have been unable to exercise in any way that I used to or want to. I have insurance now so I will get it checked out and hopefully back to normal. I hope to exercise some-right now I walk a half hour four or five times a week-whoo hoo I know. But honestly I think my body has needed a break.

I have not really chosen a "diet", and am in the process of checking out OA to see if it is a fit for me. My brain and body still reject any kind of prohibitive food regimen. Right now I am trying to just eat when I am hungry and stop when I am satisfied. I'm also trying to eat 35 grams of fiber a day. I can't say no sugar, no cheese, etc., but my goal is to lose weight.
So here I am, back again.

My Goals:
I want to have a strong and healthy eating base that is binge/and mostly-sugar free. My new goal is to end eating as an emotional salve and have good balanced baseline eating habits.


I want to be a normal eater. Be recovered from my eating disorder, heal my body image, and love myself. Be happy and healthy.

My Program:
Figure out how to eat normally without binging.
Workout 4-5 hours a week.
Exercise with a healthy attitude and not to compensate for excesses.

Personal Information:
My name is Cindy and I am 51 years old and live in Portland Oregon. I have been overweight my whole life, and would really like to figure out how to be a normal eater.

Other Information:
I am living my life in joy and acceptance, doing what makes me happy. I will move freely and energetically throughout each day.
