Hi, My name is Barbie and I'm fat. Whew! Sure glad I got that off my chest. Anyways, I don't really want to write a sob story but I eat because I want to be happy. It sounds weird but my whole life whenever my family was together and happy it was always centered around a meal or a party with snacks (basically some kind of food). So, I guess I learned to associate being happy with eating. Then as I got older and became heavier my family started getting concern and they took food away from me or would make nasty comments; as a result, I learn to associate food with shame. I would purge and hide food sometimes. To say the least, I have a very disfunctional relationship with food. I love it, I hate what it does to me, but I literally can't live without it. I am going to school for a career in Anthesteology, I have a wonderful fiance` (no we haven't set a date), and I want a family someday. I slowly began to realize that if I am at a healthier weight then I am happier, and I can be a better person in all of those roles. I have to re-learn how to eat, re-learn what food is really for (i.e. not happiness), totally oblierate my old habits and replace them with new and healthy ones. I HAVE to do this. This page will symbolically reflect a long journey in my life. I'm scare, I'm nervous, I want to cry, I'm excited, I'm anxious, but I'm starting.
