Many who have a vested interest in shaping the scope and nature of the issue want to make obesity your problem. And it is in many ways ,but I feel we need to expand the conversation, to include many many contributing factors.
I am responsible for my food intake ,but I never understood I was using food to self soothe and self medicate . Food has been my drug ,and I Lived to Eat ,instead of eating tolive. I do not believe I am all alone in this ,and now I face my drug fully aware of the issue. My argument is based on knowledge and education ,and I spent 2 years receiving Mental Health Treatment for my Binge Eating . I have a better understanding , and I can care for myself ,with foods. And yes ,I often struggle , but at least I am mindful of what I am eating. Rarely do Ifind myself passively eating.
My food relationship has been strained ,to say the least. ” Is food a substance “? For me food is my drug ,and I am working to engage others ,and I hope to assist others to fatten up on knowledge. Let’s be mindful of what we are eating,why we are eating,how we are eating, etcetc…..
Obesity is a byproduct ,and my strained food relationship contributed in me reaching 350 pounds. I ate my stress . Food allowed me to soothe and destroy my sense of self.www.obesitythunderbay.ning.com is eager to find supporters and offer education about food and the foodenvironment.
Let’s build a community obesity action plan ,one with Integrity and Dignity. Obese People are not the Enemy.
