A New Journey

When I first started on Spark it was 2008, and I weighed less than I do now. The trouble was, I was extremely bulimic, and had been for about 28 years.
With the help of Spark, I was able to quit vomiting-which was something I never even thought was possible.
My hope was to quit vomiting, (I also exercised obsessively),lose my excess weight, be skinny and live happily ever after.
Yeah, right.
Of all my addictions, food is the oldest and the root of them all.

Yeah, right.
Of all my addictions, food is the oldest and the root of them all.

Since I quit vomiting, my relationship with food has progressively escalated into free for all compulsive eating.
The obsessive exercise came to a halt after I hurt my back in a car accident and then hurt my knee playing tennis to such an extent that I have been unable to exercise in any way that I used to or want to. I have insurance now so I will get it checked out and hopefully back to normal. I hope to exercise some-right now I walk an hour four times a week-whoo hoo I know. But honestly I think my body has needed a break.

I am currently doing low carb/low sugar diet and for the first time since I can remember my obsessiveness about food has gone away. I would have staked my life on living a low fat life. It just goes to show you, I don't know everything!

Hi Cindy!
Okay, I think you might like this. Whole 30 (in a nutshell) is a 30 day "reset" by way of eliminaton to help identify foods that have a negative effect or efffects and also help form a healthy relationship with food. There is a website Whole30.com but the book is invaluable. Let me know what you think!

Don't know how you're doing. Perhaps no news is good news? I may have told you before, but there is a long-posting woman on the Living Binge Free team who used to purge and got over it, but binged for much longer. She's pretty much over that, too. She has health issues such that she does track her food. Just recently, her nutritionist told her that she eats and overeats like a normal person. Yes, normal people overeat sometimes! She doesn't have a weight goal anymore, but got to the least she has weighed in her adult life in the last year. She's on vacation now, but she frequently posts on the Hour Commitment thread on the team, if you want to be in touch. And there's always me!
