  1. She does y’all. Look fantastic that is. I’ve been trying to figure out what my deal with food is. I’m not sure mine is so much an addiction as a control issue. I won’t give all my thoughts here, but good vost. (video post)

  2. Hi Cindy, I am Wendy, Dusty’s cousin. I have looked at your blog a couple of times because Dusty posts the link on FB. I really can relate to this. I have never had to worry too much about my weight until about 7 years ago right before I had my last child. Now, everything that goes in my mouth is a concern. I LOVE food and I love to eat. My worst times is at night. Right now I count points with Weight Watchers. I know food should be our fuel just to keep us going, but how do you keep that thought in your head when you are loving the taste so much? That is what I struggle with. I know why I should be eating and we have to have certain things to keep our bodies going, but how do you get that mind set that that is the only reason we should be eating? I will certainly stay stuned this week.

  3. I totally love you….And they are right, them people up there ^^^^^^^^^ You look fabulous!!!

    Love hearing you too. Makes me want to sit on your porch and do nothing with you!!

  4. I’m tuning in. I have no self-control. I have lots of food issues. Have to clean my plate. Guy issues where I ate to make myself unattractive. Depression. List goes on and on. Cleaning up after my kids. Tried WW, tried other things. I have so much to lose (125lbs) that I feel like I can’t. Even tried making small goals, but the big picture overwhelms me. I know I can do it. I just don’t want to or maybe I’m afraid I won’t have anything to wear. I don’t know. But I’m going to be watching!

  5. Looking forward to hearing more. I have a food issues too… practically my whole life. In fact, I think it is part of my identity. I can’t even imagine my life without thinking about my weight and size. Thanks, Cindy, for taking the time to share this part of your life.

  6. so interesting… now that you’ve defined the concept of “reward” i’ve realized i do that myself too!!!! with pete out of town i’ll sit down in the evening and have a bowl of ice cream just because i made it through the day, etc. thank you for making me aware or that concept!

  7. oh my goodness…thank you for this. it’s nice to know that i am not alone. i mean, i knew i wasn’t, but it’s great to hear someone speak BOLDLY about it. i am a food addict and have been on and off WW a few times. thanks for the encouragement.

  8. I found myself doing this “rewarding” myself for getting thru the day with a Reese PB or ice cream. I soo relate.

    But one of my roots was that I have found was that I was “self-medicating” I would self medicate through the “valley” days. Then after I grew enormous, I just blamed it on Life circumstance and kep medicating myself.

    I am learning very slowing that I can “self medicate” by meditation at the beach, wrestling with my sons on the bed,
    a long hot bath. Take a breather.

    Perfect post for me!
