FOOD is my drug

Addiction,  we all have something, mine just happens to be food! Poor choices rule me from time to time and food IS my drug! What I struggle with the most, like any other addict, is guilt. When I fall off the wagon, I just need to get up, brush myself off,  and get right back on! HA!!! I made that sound really easy didn’t I? It’s the hardest thing I have ever had to do. Accountability stinks! I am confessing now before the proverbial “wagon” runs right over top of me! I have gained 20 pounds quickly and I have to get control NOW!!



There are days when I feel like I am drowning in a pool of negativity. Reading through past blogs tells me that’s exactly what I am doing!  Focusing on the fact that I am bigger than my teammates, not quite as strong, and struggling to find time to train IS NOT working. I need some positive vibes in my life and it seems like I get the most when I am with my Missfits in the gym. That hasn’t been happening a lot the last few months because of crazy schedules and life. How many of you let negativity consume you?


On a positive note I am getting stronger and have kept off 70 pounds of my weight loss BUT, I have to gain control of my eating before it consumes me! Each one of us has something we struggle with and that makes us human. Today, I am letting go of the negatives and focusing on the positives and I need all of you to hold me accountable! Like any other addict, one day at a time, and in my case,  one meal at a time!
