Struggling With Addiction?

Addicted?
Obsessed?
Uncontrollably compulsive?

Yep, me too.  I live with addiction every day.  I am a compulsive eater, a compulsive overeater and a binger.  I’ve also been known to severely restrict my food.    I struggled with my weight for decades, my weight often fluctuating wildly from month to month.  For years I tried to pretend I was something I wasn’t: a normal eater.   But I am far from a normal eater.  Once I start eating certain foods, I simply cannot stop.  Just like an alcoholic with a glass of wine or a compulsive gambler at a slot machine.  Addicted people simply do not know how to stop when presented with their drug of choice.

It was not until I was able to vocalize and accept my addiction that I was able to turn my life around.  The world that has opened up to me as a result has been a lighter, brighter, and much easier place to be.

And now I find myself in a state of GRATITUDE for my addiction.  My addiction brought me to my knees and so deep into the depths of depression that I found myself desperate enough to ask for help.

And asking for help was the first step in the right direction.  I couldn’t fix this on my own.  No amount of willpower was going to help me.  I needed to let go of my desire to take care of everyone and everything, and learn to lean on others for a change.

Through a 12-Step support group, I finally let go of my need to control my food and my weight, and miraculously the weight came off and stayed off.  I have maintained a 50 lb. weight loss for 4 years.  Such consistency was inconceivable before.

If you are struggling with addiction, know that there is another way to live.  I will be sharing resources tailored just for you.  Check in from time to time.
