A quest to learn how to have a healthy, normal relationship with food (and thus the end of dieting)

I've been obese my whole life and I am sick of it! My inspiration for losing weight is:

1) Clothes shopping. I want to be able to buy whatever I want! And I want some jeans that fit my 6' body! and since I sew clothes I'd like more selection in pattern sizes.

2) I am not living my life, and it is largely related to my size

3) I want to adopt older children through foster care in 5+ years. You need to be healthy. i want to have an active healthy lifestyle ...

3) I want to adopt older children through foster care in 5+ years. You need to be healthy. i want to have an active healthy lifestyle so the cycle of obesity ends with me.

I have been working hard over the last several years to permenantly change habits for the good, both food realated and non-food related. I am proudest of overcoming my extreme pickyness (love to try things now!), learning to love water, learning to cook decently, learning to manage my anxiety disorder, overcoming depression and ending an eating disorder (binge eating disorder) and I especially loved learning to love my body and finding my style to express myself!!
