Hi, my name is Tonya and I am addicted to food. *Hi Tonya*
I am an emotional eater. The only problem is that it doesn’t matter what emotion. Mad, glad, happy, sad. Any of them will do. I LOVE FOOD. It is my comfort. It is my drug. I am sooooo over it and yet, I can’t leave it alone. Thus, I am here. I am hopeful that by bearing my soul here about my addiction, perhaps I can start to overcome it.
I have been a “gosh, she’s got a pretty face” girl my whole life. Even when I was normal sized (now that I look at the pictures) in high school, I was the biggest of my friends. It’s only gotten worse as time has gone by. I don’t think I’m ready to put the number out there just yet but let’s just say that I have a long long way to go. Every journey begins with the first step right?
I can’t remember the last time I shopped in the “normal” sized part of the store. Now, don’t get me wrong. I don’t need to be skinny but I am no longer comfortable in my own skin. I need to be less and I don’t know what the number will be until I get there.
Thank you to everyone who started this blog and have allowed me to participate. It’s the first time that I’ve contributed to a blog outside of my own and I do hope that I’ll do it justice.
