When I was young I always said I would never be fat like most of my family members. when I was fifteen I would eat two big macs with double fries. I was over weight and never had an energy. when we would run at school I was last or next to last out of my class. As a child though I road my bike everywhere or else I would walk everywhere which kept the weight off, but when we moved to the east side of town there was very few places to walk to or ride too. at that point I began to put on weight.
We ate out allot mainly at sit down diner's. I never ate good healthy food, I grew up on meet and potatoes chips and cold cereal. the only veggies I ate was green beans and corn. maybe some peas if mom put it in tons of fatty sauce on it. I ate bananas or oranges that was about it for fruit.
when I hit 16 I decided I was to fat too and starved myself. the weight came off. I went down to 112 and that is where I stayed until I got pregnant with my first child. I also had started smoking to help keep the weight off. the next few years I kept the weight off smoking instead of eating. Than I realized I needed to quit and I did from that time forward I have gone up and down in my weight.
Until recently I was not even sure why I had so many problems with my weight. I knew I did not eat right and I realized I had to learn what was healthy and what was not. I also needed to learn balance. As I studied myself I also realized that I am an emotional eater. I kinda had seen that in behavior in myself before, but not until I sat and faced myself and studied why and when I over eat did I realize the real issues or that this was a major to factor in why I am 30 pounds overweight. If I do not get a grip on my weight it will go to ???? I can not stay where I am at I know myself that well.
I have tried so many diets it is unreal so many eating programs. yeah you can do many things to help get the weight off but the real key is what to do once you have lost to weight so you keep it off. weight watchers helped me the most lose the weight. but sparks taught me the most how to lose the weight and how to keep it off. and it is free go sparks
I sat and got on here already this morning and read an article on emotional eating and here I am thinking what did I get from it as a child why do I got back to it..
we ate out allot. we ate together as a family. that was one way I got my moms attention and time..so there it is .:)
