I just wrote a mile-long blog detailing what got me here today. Feel free to have a read, the link is on my profile. It's long, but I needed a good vent. Haha.
In short, I blacked out today whilst bingeing on Dominos pizza. It was probably one of the lowest points I've had in my life. I lost about a half-hour of my life today and it TERRIFIED ME. So I called my girlfriend and cried. A lot. I went online, researched food addiction, and came to the conclusion that I have been abusing food for quite some time now. After the initial fear and tears, I have a nearly uncontrollable drive to beat this. My father is an addict, as are his brothers and his son, my brother. And I promised myself I would never let my need for something get to the point of addiction. Well food snuck up on me throughout a very difficult five years in college and I gained almost thirty pounds. I graduated a year ago as of May and I can say it's been the most anxiety-ridden, chaotic, depressed year of my life.
I am ready to take control of my life again. I am ready to beat this thing to a darn pulp. I'll be damned if it keeps me down!
But I can't do it alone. I need some friends! I am so ready to support you in return. So feel free to share your story with me and if you are struggling, I'd love to help. We can all do this, I know we can, if we stick together. I hope to lose thirty-forty pounds by August...which will kick off a jam-packed wedding season. And I deserve to be healthy...we all do! LET'S DO THIS!
