Just wanted to stop in and say hello! I hope that this will be my new stomping ground for the next couple of months.
I'm at the bottom and there's no where to go but up.
My name is Karen and I'm a wife and Mom and I am addicted to food. Just thought I'd get that over with.
I don't eat because I'm hungry. I eat because I like food. It makes me happy. It fills the void. Sigh... It is a drug for me and I don't know how to beat it.
Food is winning the battle.
I am depressed. Miserable. Ashamed. Tired.
The last straw was this weekend at the MALL. I had to go the "Fashion Mall."
You know... The one with Nieman Marcus and Henri Bendel and Coach, etc...
I walked in and one girl just glared at me like I was a piece of crap. And then she started whispering to her friend and they began to laugh at me. I was so ashamed and humiliated. I.wanted.to.die.
Anyway, I'm here. I've made an appointment to get my hair and nails done tomorrow. I may even buy a few new outfits to get me started. I need a new beginning.
I don't want to be like this anymore.
I want to be normal.
Sorry for the pity party. It felt good confessing that.
I hope to make lots of new friends here.
