Back on the road to recovery!

October 22, 2010

It has been almost three years since my last blog on this site. I ended up leaving FA thinking I had the solution, the food plan. I was almost at my goal weight, I reached 139 lbs., my goal was 132.5. I thought I had it licked and I was off to the races. I spent the first several months sticking to the food plan as well as the other tools given to me by my FA sponsor. Slowly I stopped doing the tools then having this or that instead of my food plan controlling and going back to the craziness. I spent the next year trying to control my weight all the while going up and up and up. (I was actually trying to go down still to my goal weight). I promised myself that if I got to 155 I would go back to FA. Well, 155 came and went up more and more and I did not go back. I spent the next year and a half trying to get myself back into FA. I am not sure why, I believe it was my pride. I feel very blessed that I was able to finally make it back in the doors of FA. I ultimately gained 56 of the 65 lbs. that I had previously got rid of. I am on the road back to recovery from this food addiction one day at a time. I think I am down about 10 lbs. by now. I will find out November 1st.

    Good to see you back Cecilia, it's not how many times we fall that matters as long as we get back up one more time. All the very best, emoticon

    i know what it feels like to have an addiction, mine was alcohol and all them empty calories add up. I have been sober for 12 days and exercising daily and I already can feel the difference. Good luck on your journey emoticon
