Food has also always been central to my life. From family get togethers and holiday meals. Baking with my nana, in fifth grade when I went through a traumatic (yet common) experience, in high school when my mother went to work full time and she stopped cooking and we ate out literally every evening.
To getting married and having my own home, then being able to eat whatever I wanted, when I wanted, to raising my family and having to make the perfect meals, the perfect holidays and be the absolutely perfect hostess. And all the days in between when I would plot what I would eat next, out of boredom, frustration and just plain old bad habits and not caring enough about me to stop it.
Finally turned it around September 4, 2006. The first 2-3 weeks were EXTREMELY difficult, but got throught it and I have managed to lose over 60 pounds since then. But I gotta tell you I'm just as obsessed with food as ever, if not more so, no definitely more so. I plan constantly and shop constantly, I'm always chopping vegetables and cooking a lot. But at least it's in a healthy way. I have mustered up more willpower these last 3 months then I have had in my whole entire life, I just turned 43. So as far as food still being central to my life it most certainly is, even more so then before.
I wonder if there will ever be a day, or even an hour where I am not thinking and obsessing about food.
