I started my journey of emotional eating when I was 17 years old and had an emotionally and verbally abusive boyfriend. I hid butter cookies in my room to deal with the hurt and pain of my first love.
If I'd know then what I know now....I would have become a lesbian.
Fast forward 20 odd years later and I'm still eating my feelings. I'm a sugar addict.
I have tried most every diet plan out there (except for the one's that you have to purchase food...that doesn't work for me, I have a family to cook for).
I did find great success with the hCG diet and lost 30 pounds. But through the stress of moving and my husband finding a new job....I gained it all back. I'd do it all again but it was really hard! EDITED: Oops....I did hCG again. Lost 13 pounds and have now gained a little bit back. These fad diets are not for me....I need REAL CHANGE.
January 2013, I've hired Leslie Gail....Health and Life Coach to the stars to help my family make a dramatic transformation. It's now or never!
May 2013...Life is awesome and stressful! I just became PTA co-president with my best friend and I'm ready to focus on fixing my hormones! Getting older is hard but I know I can make my golden years the best of my life. Yes, I'm 42 going on 62....that's what I get for having an old(er) husband. Join my support group today!
