MY BINGE EATING DISORDER JOURNEY

Since I became fat 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. These things have taken their toll. Yo-yo dieting, binge eating, joining every weight loss organization out there and taking dangerous weight loss medications, you name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!.

Since I became fat 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. These things have taken their toll. Yo-yo dieting, binge eating, joining every weight loss organization out there and taking dangerous weight loss medications, you name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!. I realized far too late that my obesity was a symptom and the real disease was in my mind. This time, while I deal with my eating disorder and my health in a mindful way, I am concentrating on the the cause of my obesity. It is a long journey. So far, I have lost 60 lbs by dealing with the issues driving me to eat and NOT even trying to diet! I don't have a specific goal anymore because I now know that THE JOURNEY IS THE GOAL. I am seeking to connect with others on a similar journey.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. There are so many hormones that play a role in appetite and weight regulation. Some are tied to our sleep cycle. I'm still researching some more. But the most important players are insulin and leptin. Stress hormones like cortisol will affect both and thyroid hormones regulate energy expenditure.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my blog. You are exactly the audience spark is trying to reach with those articles. I just wish when they write them they could avoid the labels (obsessive, or compulsive weigher) and give a nod to those of us who use our daily numbers wisely.

I have the same problem with blogs and message board comments about the horrors of "fat shaming" that descend into a put down of scrawny or flat chested women. I have been called both in real life. My chest size is genetic and my 37" hips are hardly scrawny.
