OH heck where do I begin? I am like most of you - overweight all my life. I have tried every over the counter drug available and even some that weren't available! I live in San Diego and have even driven down to Mexico to get weekly shots and pills. Now you can understand the title of my page.

What I desire most in the world is sanity in all areas of my life but mostly in the area of food. I know without a doubt that I am a food addict. I have dreams of food and can conjure up a particular food's taste instantly. I can talk about food for hours. I have stolen to feed my addiction. I have hidden food in my purse, under my bed, even in my bra to feed my addiction later. I have binged and purged. I could go on and on...

But I am ready to face my fears head on and let all those darn skeletons out of my closet and share whatever I need to share to be free of this insanity. I am done being a slave to food. Done.

I have a wonderful husband and two adorable children and an amazing job. So many blessings ! I want to be free of the food to enjoy each and every one of them and not waste one more moment!
Too many wasted moments. Well not anymore - not anymore!

To do that, I need your help. I am holding out my hand, please take it...

Fitness Minutes: 865

My Goals:
Just to be happy and healthy. Everything else is just well - the icing!

I am also doing the 3 Day Breast Cancer walk here in SD - 60 miles in 3 days! Lordy, what was a thinking? An exercise program jumpstart? To say the least... but I can do it!

My Program:
I am seeing a therapist who is helping me understand why I eat. I write my food down. I am trying not to binge.
And I am working out more - 3 X a week.
