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...
