The "Fat" Me

Everyone always wants to know the reasons hwo someone could get to be so big. For many the reasons could be simple-

busy taking care of others, eat all the the wrong foods, lack of fitness/cardio, addiction toward food

I had alot of combination of reasons. An emotional taxing childhood where I dealt with emotionally absent parents, lack of interaction involvement in my life activities as a child. I had an emotionally absent alcoholic mother. I have dysfunctional relationships with my parents and it was never my felt.

I grived some over family loss and dealt with a complacency and food addiction with my husband. We were active but not 'athletic' and we ate whatever we wanted. We socialized with food and found comfort in eating it all the time together.

I've had a series of life stresses that led me more toward food and that always packed on the lbs and that included infertility, financial issues along with a difficulty in taking care of preemie twins-one that had severe colic issues.

It was easier for me to find comfort with food. I had an intimate relationship with food. I loved it and it could always make me feel good.
