So I haven't completed the book yet. I have checked out from the library about 4 times over the span of about 15 months or so, I would read about half and have to return it. Today I finally purchased the book so I can finish it. YAY! But every time I would read it, I felt like the book was written for me. I have always been able to identify with things from all the chapters I have read. Never really being able to pinpoint one HUGE factor in my weight gain, until yesterday.
My husband and I have been married 9 1/2 years. They have been rough years. He isn't abusive, but he isn't real emotional. He would rather sweep things under the rug than discuss things. So I always feel frustrated and like things never get solved or dealt with, just forgotten about. So yesterday we were having a disagreement, I felt very frustrated and suddenly it hit me, this is the thing that has driven me to fridge! I have sought comfort in the arms of refrigerator!! Food has been my lover, so to speak. Food doesn't ignore me or reject me, it's always there for me. I now realize that I have to learn to deal with my feelings and not just "eat" them away! I can see where my weight gain really started after we got married.
I feel like this is a huge break through. Has anyone else experience similar things? Or have any advice??
