Good Morning!

I’m so happy all of you even care to read what I write. I lovingly share in case any of my words might touch any of you.

I’m a soon to be 56 year old (December 19) housewife from Fishers, Indiana who loves food. I had a rough emotional life and I tend toward emotional eating and binge eating, night eating... I find it hard to stop eating when things taste good and I’m full. Exercise is not my favorite and I’m not a gym rat. I have chronic pain. So no, I’m not a rockstar at perfect, I’m flawed and real. Sound familiar?

I got up to 460 pounds, but managed to lose 220 of that and keep it off. I did not have surgery or go on a crazy diet or exercise like mad. I started adjusting my mindset by journaling, figuring out where my crazy thoughts about food were coming from, correcting them, making action plans about my thinking, not just my eating... It all starts in the head. First we think- THEN we eat. So fixing thinking is crucial.

Something very enlightening that I’ve learned in coaching classes is that people have limiting beliefs that hold them back from succeeding at their goals. Google “Limiting Beliefs and overcoming them.” There are many articles out there to help you change your mindset and give you ideas.

Love 💕 to each of you today!
