I struggle with my weight and food issues on a daily basis. I actually cannot remember a time when I did not have a problem with eating. I was an overweight child, I was anorexic and bulimic in my teenage years and into my early twenties, and now I am an overweight adult.
It feels like I am always searching for the newest way to lose weight quickly. I do well during the day but at night I always succumb to late night overeating. I do not technically have an eating disorder anymore, or at least not one that threatens my health. Food is like a drug for me and sometimes it feels as if I do not have control over what I eat even though I know I do.
Lately I have been trying to be aware of what my body is telling me. If I feel actual hunger I eat. If I want to eat because I am bored, tired, or upset I try to refrain. I don't always win but I try. I have also been walking which helps curb the binges.
