My Struggle with Food: The Keys that Unlocked the Door

My Struggle with Food: The Keys that Unlocked the Door

In my previous post, I shared my 20+ year struggle with my relationship with food. Today, I will share how I began to heal.

I can look back and see that there were a few marked turning points. One was when I had children. I have two beautiful and impressionable little girls. They stole my heart the second they were born. I wanted to figure this out so that they don't ever have to struggle in this way.

My Struggle with Food: A Self-Induced Prison

I’ve struggled with my relationship with food for as long as I can remember. It was always my outlet, my coping mechanism, the way to turn off my mind.

It always equated to more confidence, more social adeptness, more happiness.
