When I began my journey19 years ago, I answered yes to every one of these questions this let me know I was a food addict!

Do you have more than an occasional episode of binge eating?
Yes, i binged all the time. The only time i did not binge was when i was sleeping then I dreamed about it.

Do you eat when you’re not physically hungry?
Physically hungry i don't think i have ever been really, really hungry in my life, but I alway felt like I was starving

Do you feel disgusted with yourself and/or guilt and shame after binging?
Disgusted every night when i went to sleep I prayed to not wake up.

Do you generally feel depressed?
Yes, i was either on the ceiling or in the toilet.

Do you isolate to eat?
Boy, did I, I considered me, myself and I a party of three.

Do you frequently attempt to lose weight and fail?
I tried every diet i ever heard of.

Do you eat large amounts of food throughout the day?
I could eat and eat and eat and eat, the eat some more.

Do you eat much more rapidly than others?
i even had people comment on how fast i ate.

Do you continue eating when stuffed?
Feeling stuffed just meant go lay down tell you can eat more.

I heard recently that over a million people are on a diet or starting one. I used to be included in that million, but my diets did not last long.

This is the beginning of my journaling about what has changed in the last 20 years. On July 8 2006 I celebrated 20 years of being on a liv......it and not a die..............it.
One of the first things i had to do was quit dieting. Dieting for me meant it was going to end. And what i needed to find was a way of eating that i felt i could do “one day at a time” for ever.

my beginning weight was 200+ it took me about 8 months to get down to 140 i bounced between 130 and 140 for 18 years.

on july 21 i will celebrate 2 two years of finding what it takes "for me" to stay at 128 give or take 2 lbs for two years.
