Asking For Help

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Some of you out there might already know this, but my major obstacle in my quest to lose weight has always been food. It seems that no matter how many articles I read or videos I watch I will always be drawn to eating copious amounts of junk food. In the past I've tried to reach out for help, but it was always half hearted and failed. Nothing stuck and I always ended up back where I started. But yesterday for whatever reason why I decided to make a change for the better and reach out for some *real* help! I've decided to get checked out to see if I, in fact have some kind of eating disorder. There is an amazing program here in the Twin Cities that deals with all kinds of eating disorders and helps heal in a very hollistic way and I feel that is something that I really, really, REALLY need right now. Now I'm not saying that I have an eating disorder, I just don't know what I have right now but whatever it is, emotional eating or worse these people can offer me the professional help that I've been needing. Unfortunately I couldn't get in until late June but I'm still very excited to start and maybe put an end to my crazy eating patterns! I've said it before and I'll say it again: I (and YOU, for that matter) can work out for as much as humanly possible, but it's not going to be worth much if your eating habits are awful!

I'll blog more later, I have to get ready to go to work! ttfn!!

    I'm not a medical pro but can you try eating more raw fruit and veg? I find them very filling.

Years ago when I babysat, I was told the kids weren't allowed to eat anything except fruit after school. The Mom said if they ruin their appetite for supper, she wanted it to be with fruit, not crackers or junk food.

Maybe if you started with that you wouldn't have to struggle with *not* eating, just what you eat. Make sure you have lots of fruit you like around and when you get nibbly it's ready to eat!

The specialists will have better ideas! Best wishes!

    I think that no matter the outcome (eating disorder or not) that this is a really good step for you. Learning more about yourself and possibly getting help handling it is always positive! Good luck! :)

    I hope the program can help you. My dad offered to send my aunt to something like that to help her get a handle of her eating habits. She was 450 lbs. but she refused and ended up with gastric bypass surgery. I really think it is great that you are reaching out for help and not trying to do it all on your own. Please keep us posted on how it is going.
