Been living large for way too long. I keep looking for the magic plan that will take this weight off but there is no magic. I just need to eat less and move more....easier said then done!

I am a FOOD addict! I just plain and simply love it all!! And the more I like it, the more I want to eat it. So portion control is HUGE for me. I just eat and eat and eat ... even when I know it's not good for me! It's like I just can't override those feelings of intense longing for more ...

Evenings are the worst ... mornings are generally ok until about 11 or noon and then look out...the hungry/munchie monster shows up! If I am stressed or angry...Wow!!! Then I get the Super Powered monster!!

Does anyone else have to deal with this?!! I Hate being like this and it is almost as if someone else is controlling my urges to eat!

Let me know if this describes you ... I need soul mates to help me do this! No one else around me really knows how awful this is for me. I feel like I have an eating disorder that is the opposite of "anorexia".

I know all about healthy eating and I could probably write books on nutrition and weightloss. It's the follow through that I have trouble with ... the staying committed to healthy choices. I always slip back to my old eating habits and then I gain back what ever I worked so hard to lose.

ok .... that's enough for now. Sorry about all the whining! I actually am a pretty happy person for the most part. But would be even happier if I weighed about 150 lbs less!! *Grin*

I agree with the ... "Hunger ... what is that?!" The people that I least understand are those that say they forgot to eat! How do you forget to eat?!! It seems like no matter what I am doing or where I am if I am not eating, I am thinking about it. Of course TV and the internet with the endless parade of ads with food or recipes for food don't help any. I am so glad there are others like me ... and especially those that are working their plan and having success!!

I love to eat also, can not understand people, who say, I only eat when I'm hungry! Hunger, whats that, I do not think I have ever been hungry. I do try now, to only eat foods that fill me up, like oatmeal. Love it that Walmart's no sugar is only 110 calories. I have to watch the size of containers that I buy food in, One container, one spoon, one serving. that had to stop. We are all in the same boat! emoticon

Dear Lola Jean,

Congrats on your 7 year anniversary. You are truly inspirational at this time since I am going through difficult times and stayed away from spark page going into a paralysis.

Today I opened my mind and heart again to the site and realized how blessed I was to know all of your and receive the love, support and encouragement I don't get like I get on here.

Thank you for being a beacon for us all.

Love Yvonne

Hi, Lola Jean, I just dropped by to say emoticon on your 7 year Sparkversary. On reading your page I see we have WAY too much in common, including the Over 60 + team. Imagine a disorder called BED. I haven't had as much trouble with it since eating mostly vegan. Eating out is one of my downfalls because I mostly don't buy anything for home that I'm not supposed to eat. (I say this with a package of ham sitting in my frig.) emoticon Anyway, enjoy your day. I admire your perseverance.
Janet
