Where do I go from here?

How do we end up where we are today? From the first diet, from the first time we tried to starve ourselves skinny, diet pills, on and on. Some of us end up with eating disorders and some of us not. Some of us give up and some don't. I'm tired of it all....the restriction, counting, diets, and all of the solutions out there. What I have come to know it is not the food, but what we tell ourselves. The words we say that leads to the same cycle over and over again. Like being crazy, insane ...

What I have come to know it is not the food, but what we tell ourselves. The words we say that leads to the same cycle over and over again. Like being crazy, insane with food.

I'm 57 and I used to think, oh when I get older I won't binge anymore, well that was wrong as I still do. Gaining 25 pounds since February of this year on top of what I already had to lose.

I know my screen name is never give up - but I do feel I have given up on trying. Bottom line is look at life and see what is causing it, and try to fix the issues, NOT the food. Food is not the issue.

So where do I go next, have no clue, but keep on trying to figure it out. Right now I feel I don't have the desire, power or strength to keep on fighting this....but someday I hope to find the answer.

Hey, buddy.....thinking of you. How's it going?

I started the Winter Challenge yesterday, but exercise will be minimal now until I recover from the latest round of illness I have. DH and I ended 2014 sick and started the new year with another round of sickness. 2015 can only get better....

I'm already wishing for Spring.

Best to you with your goals for you this year! emoticon
