When I first started on Spark it was 2008, and I weighed less than I do now. The trouble was, I was extremely bulimic, and had been for about 28 years.
With the help of Spark, I was able to quit vomiting-which was something I never even thought was possible.
My hope was to quit vomiting, (I also exercised obsessively),lose my excess weight, be skinny and live happily ever after.
Yeah, right.
Of all my addictions, food is the oldest and the root of them all.

Since I quit vomiting, my relationship with food has progressively escalated into free for all compulsive eating.
The obsessive exercise came to a halt after I hurt my back in a car accident and then hurt my knee playing tennis to such an extent that I have been unable to exercise in any way that I used to or want to. I have insurance now so I will get it checked out and hopefully back to normal. I hope to exercise some-right now I walk an hour four times a week-whoo hoo I know. But honestly I think my body has needed a break.

I am currently doing low carb/low sugar diet and for the first time since I can remember my obsessiveness about food has gone away. I would have staked my life on living a low fat life. It just goes to show you, I don't know everything!

My Goals:
I want to have a strong and healthy eating base that is binge/and mostly-sugar free. My new goal is to end eating as an emotional salve and have good balanced baseline eating habits.


I want to be a normal eater. Be recovered from my eating disorder, heal my body image, and love myself. Be happy and healthy.


My Program:
Figure out how to eat normally without binging.
Workout 4-5 hours a week.
Exercise with a healthy attitude and not to compensate for excesses.



Personal Information:
My name is Cindy and I am 51 years old. I have been overweight my whole life, and would really like to figure out how to be a normal eater.


Other Information:
I struggle with depression.

    Thank you for reading my blog and leaving a comment! I will definitely try some strength training at home ~ just to help build up something. I do a couple days of training at the gym, but nothing major.

    Hi Cindy! Thanks for the add & welcome to SP. I'm so happy for you that you've discovered clean eating. I too have always struggled w/ being overweight. The Eat Clean Diet book changed my life this year. I've learned so much about food & my body, too.
    For me it's a journey to transform my life- that includes my body & my way of thinking. And there's trial & error involved. So just stay plugged in to SP & use others as your motivation until you can keep it rolling on your own. That's how I started. Once you start to see your own progress, you'll be inspired by yourself. You can do it!
