I have a confession: I'm an emotional eater. For years, whenever I was troubled or stressed about something, I'd eat. Not just eat; I'd overeat!!! It didn't matter what it was; if I wanted it, I ate it until I was stuffed!!! I live alone, so nobody really knew what I was going through. My family and friends would always talk about how strong I am in handling situations, but what they don't know is that I turned to food for comfort.

BUT TODAY IS A NEW DAY!!! There's a new sheriff in town, and THAT'S ME!!! I'm determined not to allow anyone or anything to sabotage me!!! I'm meditating and finding other things to keep my mind from focusing on food. It's a struggle, but I'm determined to win this battle. If I slip and fall, it's okay. I won't beat myself up about it; I'll just pick up the pieces and get back on track. I'm just going to deal with it one day at a time. :-)
