I too can relate to the name of this group. Food is definitely my 'self-medication' for stress, and i've had a doozy of a decade. Now i'm 52 and huge. I look like Jaba the Hutt with hair. Humpty Dumpty with boobs. Its not good.
So, on Ash Wednesday, this coming March 9th, I'm giving up sugar. Totally. And i'm not going to try to sugar up stuff with fake sugars (splenda etc.) I want to train my tastebuds to find the sweet in healthy stuff. Hardest to give up: ice cream, and sweet tea.
I hope this will be the first step toward getting my weight and health on track. Its time. I carry all my weight in my belly, and i sincerely hope that some well-meaning gentleman will NOT offer me a seat on the bus because he thinks i'm very pregnant.
i pretend that i am pregnant and i'm grateful for his kindness. and then a little part of me dies inside. Time to stop dying.
Anyone else there using Lent as a spring board?
Whether or not you are, can you support me in my journey?
