Food for Thought

I guess everyone is doing this , but I got it from Fat Bridesmaid and wanted to play along. I think everyone should think about the answers to these questions!

1. What types of food were you most likely to overeat?
Salty and fatty. I love french fries, potato chips and dip, nachos & cheese with jalepenos and sour cream.

2. What times of day did you overeat most often?
It starts late morning and goes all day. The worst is at night though...if I can be good all day, then I usually break after @ dinner

3. What feelings were you having most often when you overate?
I'm the classic over eater. I feel great while I'm doing it, but soon after it's guilt and disguist

4. Do you think you have a binge eating disorder?
Yes.

5. What circumstances in your life do you believe contributed to your weight gain?
I come from a long line of overeaters, but really it's not getting help for low self esteem and depression early on. It started as poor choices and escalated to a disorder.

6. Do you 'blame' anyone for your weight?
It stopped being about other people a long time ago, although it took me a while to stop the blame game. I do blame myself, which doens't help getting better. It's something I'm working on.

7. What other behaviors made you overweight?
Overeating, laziness, bad choices. I have a global problem...no one thing has caused it.

8. Were you active or exercising while you gained weight?
I've been off and on (although more off), but not gaining when I would exercise. Hmm....maybe there's something to this? lol

9. What made you finally want to change?
I have aches and pains that shouldn't be here. I'm tired of having trouble when trying to do more simple physical activity. I don't want to die early. I want to shop and find clothes I like instead of clothes that fit. I want to feel sexy for my husband, because right now I don't. I want to feel attractive in a dress...and feel like a woman.

I think finding the answers will help me. I never really thought of why I eat & when. Thanks!
