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.

Thank you for your thoughtful comments on my blog this afternoon -- how funny is men's "greatest fear." LOL

My husband said his greatest fear when he went on a few internet dates prior to meeting me was that he would meet a psycho too. I guess at that time, Fatal Attraction was still rolling around in his mind.

You wrote an excellent comment on the Spark article this morning "3 reasons you're not losing weight." You should make that (yo-yo dieting & metabolism) a blog topic. I bet it affects a lot of people.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my blog, especially the kind words. Marilyn Monroe had a 24" waist. In today's sizing she would be a size 4 or 6 from the waist down. Her bust was another matter. At 38" she would need a bigger blouse. Her curves were amazing.
To understand what sizing used to be check out Simplicity patterns. They didn't change their measurements. Pattern sizing used to match off-the-rack sizing.
