Food is not a solution to emotions. Letting them be and letting them go; that's what works

I am 44 years old and have struggled with my weight my entire life. When I look back at the times in high school where I restricted my diet to 800 calories a day, I am amazed that I even felt like I should diet. I was a healthy weight for my height... but I grew so much early in life that I was quite tall compared to the other girls who were tiny little things and I lived in a culture where I felt like an amazon. I would be thrilled to be the weight I was then.

I am 44 years old and have struggled with my weight my entire life. When I look back at the times in high school where I restricted my diet to 800 calories a day, I am amazed that I even felt like I should diet. I was a healthy weight for my height... but I grew so much early in life that I was quite tall compared to the other girls who were tiny little things and I lived in a culture where I felt like an amazon. I would be thrilled to be the weight I was then.

I had kids and gained and lost weight. I was at my highest weight ever for me when I became pregnant with my second son and I vowed to not gain 50 pounds like I did with my first. I did well. I only gained about 20 pounds and when I was at the end of my pregnancy with him, I weighed what I weigh now. The heaviest weight I have been in my entire life.

It seems to me that I am heading in the wrong direction. I am getting older and much more concerned with health. I also have had many changes in my life, some good and some bad, but I USE FOOD in either situation. I USE FOOD to celebrate and too "drown my sorrows". Talk about a drug addict. I USE FOOD in order to try to make feelings go away... like that works.

Well, now I am aware. I have been working on myself and working to make my life what I want it to be. I am working on keeping the control in my life rather than giving it away. I am working on living each day and slowing my mind down. (I tend to worry) I am working on getting up and walking, or dancing rather than eating. I am working on sitting quietly with my emotions and letting them flow, then letting them go, instead of eating.

Let this journey begin.
