to make a long story short. I have come to understand that I am a food addict and I am addicted to sugar, fried foods & processed food. for years I have struggled with my weight. I would gain weight and I would lose weight.
the last four years I did not have the energy to do the whole diet plan thing again. when I faced that my problems with food is because I used food to comfort myself, not to feel and nto deal with things in my life. When I accept that fact and joined oh OA the weight feel off. and I began to work my way though my problems nto eat my way through my problems...
i have kept the weight off since Oct of last yr... the 26 th of this month will be one yr that I have not binged on food...I joined a 12 step program and continue with that...

    For some reason your comment on my page got double posted so I deleted one of them. Not sure if a member gets alerted to such a thing. I wanted to reassure you that I welcome your comments!

    the best thing to be is fruit taste so sweet and good now.. it has amazed me the difference in taste..
    I as at th epoint I was going to need medication for my blood sugar
    and my colestrial was 186 the highest it has ever been
    but since i have lost the weight and do nto eat sugar
    my suagr levels are within normal range and my col levels are 138
    I also decreased y throid medication to the lowest dose..because the dose i was on was to much

    both my parents were diabetics my mom a fragile one..
    so the way I eat now is very good for me...i even have learned hwo to make yogurt :) emoticon
