    My Story

    I am 26. Today, I am 5'11", weighing in at 334. Just looking at that number makes me feel hopeless. My addiction started when I was younger, around 12 years old, when my father was arrested. My family fell apart. Everyone was worried about him, and I felt overlooked. So, I ate...

    Food, My Weight And Working Out Are All I Think About.

    I've gone up and down with my weight my whole life. Being extremely overweight twice now by the age of 26 is terriable! I eat the most when I'm alone when no one can watch me stuff myself. I think about food every waking moment! Anything that is bad for me I want it. It's easiest...

    I like to go out to eat, it's a habit derived from my parents. Food is so comforting. Especially warm or hot food, like cheeeeeeee… oops, sorry. I was thinking about cheese again. I also like mangoes and pomegranates and raspberries and other fruits, especially obscure ones. I...

    Never Ends

    I'll wake up in the morning and think "just a bowl of cereal...that's all I need..." but things never happen that way. This morning when I went upstairs I found bacon in the fridge and so I cooked it up...fried it actually. Then I ate my cereal. When my brother woke up he knew I...

    Don't Know Why I Eat, But I Eat.

    I don't feel like I am an emotional eater. I'm not the type to get sad and eat a pint of ice cream. I'm not sure what causes me to eat. I just like the feeling of being full. I like food and I like a variety of foods. When my husband eats a cheeseburger, it makes me jealous. Why...

    All Day, Every Day

    I love food so much, that for one weekend my parents were away, I did nothing but eat and watch tv all weekend. Pizza, chips candy, it was soooo good. I don't mind that I am fat, but this is certainly a part of that.

    Mostly I'm addicted to sugar.

    I love sweets. Ice cream and chocolate are probably what I crave the most. A couple of years ago I gave up sugar for thirty days. I even went on vacation during that time period and managed to stick with it. By the end of the month I didn't crave sugar like I used to, but...

    On a completely serious note. It's a legit addiction, and I struggle with it. I eat even if I'm not hungry, just because it's there.
