Present Medical Problems:
State of Mind:
Hooked on food. Hooked on sugar really I guess. Finding it very hard not to think of food. I tend to binge. It's a boredom/emotional thing. If I'm bored I eat. If I'm upset I eat.
I just really need people's support with this, since no one around me is helpful with this and they are always trying to coax me into eating. I really want to do this, I think it will bring me peace in what feels like an endless war in my mind. I want the clarity, and to lose the fat that won't go away with just eating well and exercising. I think it's more about my mind though. I feel so negative all the time and I know that's not the way I would be if I could break free of my food addiction.
