6/8/2010-I have realized I have gained 20lbs in the last three years. Not a trend I wish to continue! So its back to what I know works.. weight watchers with a little bit of food combining.

I wasn't overweight as a child, well not until I hit puberty. Then it all went pear shaped (literally). There's no mystery. I am overweight because I ate too much and wasn't active. I remember hoarding food, I would go downstairs to the kitchen while everyone was watching TV and gather candy and take it upstairs and store it in my drawer. To this day I don't know why I did it.

I went through various stages of food addiction/disorders. I would go days without eating and then binge. I once tried to purge but it didn't work (thank goodness!). I wasn't happy with the way that I looked but didn't really try seriously losing weight until the end of high school.

The summer after high school I signed up for an Outward Bound sailing course and had to start walk/running to get into shape for it. That sort of started a health kick and that summer before college I lost 30lbs.

Since then my weight has been within the same 10-20lb range up and down. I have never gotten very far away from exercising but its yet to become a natural thing for me. I'm currently 15lbs heavier than I want to be and have been for about two years now.

I'm 30 now and its not getting any easier but I'm determined.

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. you are so right about mind over matter. i thought I was the only one that could think about food and what not to do.

    The mind can be an enemy or a friend.

    stay motivated!

    ...for your kind comments on my blog today! I always try to remind people: if an activity isn't FUN, find something else: life's too short to settle on things we don't enjoy!
