    I've Lost The Struggle

    I've completely lost my struggle with food addiction. I'm fat, and I'm gonna stay that way. I think it's all because of my "little friend"! Isn't it funny how much we're each governed by that "little friend"! I found that he liked it when my belly was full, so I kept making my...

    There I said it, I'm addicted to food

    and I can't stop. When I try to kick the addiction sometimes it works for a few days, even maybe a week but then when I feel an overwhelming rush of painful emotions overcome me, I'm back at the fridge, gorging on whatever is there. It numbs me. It makes me not think about it...

    Eating Disorders And What I've Learned

    My struggle with food all began my freshman year of college. I fell in love with a boy and ended up getting my heart broken. I started to think that it was because I was fat. Before this, I had no idea what the heck a calorie was. I was 5' 8" and about 150 lbs at that time...
