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.


Facing reality isn't easy.  I stepped onto the scales Sunday morning and had gained a total of 14 pounds since the beginning of November.  How does that happen?  It happens by thinking I can do this on my own.  It happens by passing by the steps that I know work.  It happens by ignoring the need to turn to God.

I am once again starting the day new.   I have had one huge strawberry, two spicy black bean burger patties, a cup and a half of diced tomatoes and 1/3 of a cup of raw almonds.  I have had plenty to eat, water to drink and am trying to keep busy instead of keep thinking about food.
