I gave up but back for more

peej76peej76 Member Posts: 1,258 Member Member Posts: 1,258 Member
For those who don't know me, my name is Penny and definitley not new to trying to lose weight. Recently I completely gave up on myself, but I'm really sick of not being where and who I want to be, so I'm back for another go round. I know I just did this a few weeks ago, but I never did anything about it!!

Basically over the last little while I came to a realization about myself, and it's time to make it right. For awhile I had control over food, and while I did I was great at losing weight. But I've let it control me again and as funny as it might sound I'm pretty sure food is my drug. I use it when I'm bored, angry, stressed, sad, for social functions. I've started smoking off and on again. I'm slowly seeing old patterns reemerging and honestly it kinda freaks me out a bit!!

I've had alot of different things going on lately but I need to look them in the face and not use food as a crutch. So here I am back again for all your support and friendship. I really really want this. To be a happier healthier person. So I figure no better time to start then to a new season of biggest loser!! (my husband is getting on board too....let's see if he's up for a little friendly competition!!!) Yes the show kinda got me fired up last night with a new motivation.

So, I'm getting serious here and let's see where it leads me! See ya around the posts.....once again lol!!

    I also use food as a drug I am an addict pure and simple. I have actually started using the 12 steps of narcotics anonymous in relation to food and am finding out it works for food just like it does with drugs!!! how awesome to have a program that explains to me how to deal with so many things in life :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou: :flowerforyou:
