MY BINGE EATING DISORDER JOURNEY

Since I became fat 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. These things have taken their toll. Yo-yo dieting, binge eating, joining every weight loss organization out there and taking dangerous weight loss medications, you name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!.

Since I became fat 10 years ago, I have tried repeatedly to lose weight. These things have taken their toll. Yo-yo dieting, binge eating, joining every weight loss organization out there and taking dangerous weight loss medications, you name it, I've done it. All of these weight loss attempts have destroyed my body and made me ill. No more restrictive diets for me, no more miracle cures and above all, I NO LONGER WANT MY LIFE TO BE CONTROLLED BY FOOD!!!. I realized far too late that my obesity was a symptom and the real disease was in my mind. This time, while I deal with my eating disorder and my health in a mindful way, I am concentrating on the the cause of my obesity. It is a long journey. So far, I have lost 60 lbs by dealing with the issues driving me to eat and NOT even trying to diet! I don't have a specific goal anymore because I now know that THE JOURNEY IS THE GOAL. I am seeking to connect with others on a similar journey.

Good morning. I'm finding that trying to keep my fitness up is difficult on some days. I got into the pool this morning and swam several laps, although the lady in the lane next to me was furious that I didn't have a swim cap. It would seem that "mind your own business" is the theme for my week!

In the mean time I've managed to live Binge free for weeks now, and I'm proud of that!!

Thank you so much for commenting on my blog. I've been reading some of your blogs and although I haven't been a binge eater since I was 18, a lot of what you write speaks to me.
This is my 16th day of stopping a non-food/drink related addiction. Cheering you on with your streak!

The pictures are great. The woman with the glasses. I'm wondering what her expression represents.
