but I haven’t been able to go back to the pool due to surgery. As soon as I can, I’ll post the today picture where I am within 20 pounds of the weight a woman my age and height should be. Thank God. I am a compulsive overeater. The disease is physical. The cause is emotional. The solution is spiritual. The weight is staying off. It’s been two years so far. Being an addict is one of the symptoms of this disease where I ignore the reality around me and eat to numb my feelings rather than deal with the problems in my life. I no longer have to handle those problems alone. I’m working the 12 steps as part of the Daily Deal for recovery. And the program really works for me. Just like they said, it has worked for thousands and I am one of them. Yay!
