I've always been an emotional eater and for the most part of my life I've been overweight to some degree. In 2009 I turned things around, I was watching my diet, I started exercising and I lost 50kgs and was down to a size 10-12 and felt fantastic
. I swore I would never ever go back to my bad eating habits
. I worked too damn hard to lose that weight and I achieved those results in just under 12 months.
Fast forward to 2013 and I've gained 30kgs of that 50kgs back
. I just can't seem to control my food, I never have. My main areas of lack of control are when I'm at home bored, I can just eat and eat and never seem to fill up.
This will be the first year in many years that I'm back to working 5 days a week (my youngest starts school this year). I seem to have my eating under control when I'm working, so I'm hoping it might just sort itself out because as I said my trouble areas are being home along with my youngest.
Why is it that some people have such a healthy relationship with food and others don't. I'm not a lazy person, I'm an attractive girl who has always taken pride in her appearance, but can never seem to get my food under control.
I almost liken it to a drug, some people are addicted to alcohol, some drugs, smoking etc., well my addiction is food and I would really love to overcome this obsession I have.
Has anyone else had issues with food and been able to get on top of it and stay on top of it.
