Changing the way I eat.
2/7/2007 10:41:58 PM
I started to really get serous with eating healthy because I am over weight and I just lost 24 pounds I am so happy about this.
I am taking it a day at a time just like everything else this is not the first time in doing this. I have been up and down with weight for a while now. I am just sick of the feeling and I am desperate to change. I thank God I am because that is how I got help when I stopped drinking I got desperate to change and I did and I have been clean and sober since, that was in 1995.
Now food is a different story for me this addiction with food is much harder for me then stopping drinking and drugs. I feel it is because we need food to stay alive.
I am finding out that I have to eat to live not live to eat not use food as intertainment like I have been.
Food is like my best friend for me and this friend has turned on me, like my other friend did alcohol, so now it is time to change the way I think about food and the way I choose the foods I eat. I am now thinking of food as if it is my medication I take medication for Lupus and so now I think of food as that instead of recreation.
I wrote about changing my ways of eating in my book back in 2000 I was so happy I lost weight but I gained the weight back and then some.
In 2004 before I was diagnosed with Lupus I lost 60 pounds agian so this is not the first time for me, or second time, or thrid time, not even the 10th time. I have done this many times the reason I lost it in 2004 was because I thought all the pain I was having was from the weight then I found out I had Lupus and got on medication and started gaining the weight back and I gained it back and much more so now I am thinking of food differently not as a diet but as a new way of eating in my life. I am going to share little by little in my blog about how this new journey goes with my new way of eating. Writing is healing for me as I write a lot so I thought this would be a nice way to share with you as I feel and maybe get some feed back on how some of you deal with food. Thanks for being here
