I am spending a lot of time this morning thinking about food. I woke up very hungry. I had an evening snack last night because I realized that I was way under where my healthy food intake should have been for the day. It was a crazy day of running with the kids and we spent two hours swimming in the early evening. I want to be really aware of what I am eating and make sure I am not teetering between extremes.
I kind of feel like the appetite suppressant is a cheat. I don't know why I feel that way. It is just a tool and will help me overcome this two decades worth of addiction to overeating and it really seems to be helping. I will beat this.
I am truly a mom over the top! I have been a compulsive overeater for most of my life. The first time I remember specific over the top eating behaviors was when I was 13 years old. That was 24 years ago. I started on this journey to health, to abstinence, to sanity in May, 2010. I hope that by blogging I can help, not only myself, but help others to know that they aren't alone. My tools on this journey are Overeaters Anonymous and SparkPeople.
