I used to be (literally) suicidal over my eating…

Here’s something most people don’t know about my story…

I thought long and hard before revealing this because I know everyone looks up to and depends on me now…

And you CAN… because I never would’ve done anything about it given how responsible a person I am…

But I think it’s important people know because I know I’m not the only one who’s felt like this…

Because towards the end of my binge eating days, I was literally suicidal over my eating…

I felt I’d done EVERYTHING possible to fix the problem…

Psychiatrists, psychologists, overeaters anonymous, etc…

I even went to an attorney and tried to set up a crazy contract where a bunch of money I deposited would go to a god-awful organization I’d NEVER want to be associated with if I didn’t lose weight! (Thank goodness he turned me down or I might actually be associated with that organization)

I really thought that I’d lost my fight with pizza, pasta, and chocolate…

That I was a forever casualty of this war…

But obviously it wasn’t true.

One thing which kept me going was the research which said people who keep trying to find a way out eventually do…

Just keep getting up again, I thought…

And I was right.  I not only got out of it, but out in a big way.

I’m sorry if knowing this about me disappoints you in any way…

But I thought to myself if I can reach even one more person who’s feeling like that and convince them it IS possible to get out…

It will have been more than worth any embarrassment I feel.

And you should know I’m the farthest thing possible from suicidal now…

I love my life…

I love my friends…

I love my work…

And I have love in my life again…

Love I can be present for…

As compared to searching for it at the bottom of a bag, box, or container.

Onwards!
