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.

Hi Deb,

Just wanted you know I tried using Spark Mail to write you about orchids. It was my first attempt at using Spark Mail for a private message, so I hope you got it! If not, please let me know and I will try again or use a different method.

Hope you are hanging in there, taking it one day (or minute!) at a time. Be positive and grateful!

I'm still amazed and excited about the NoS Diet.

Blessings to you always and may your Christmas be joy filled.

Leanna

Just want you to know I have not forgotten you!!!!! We went out of town right after Thanksgiving and just got back yesterday. It is late tonight and won't be home tomorrow night so hopefully Wednesday I will be able to get in touch. I have been SO out of control through all this that I gained back 10 pounds! Oh it is so hard to say that in print! emoticon More soon, Leanna
