Hey. I'm a 55-year old woman. I've had a conflicted relationship with food all of my life - it's my comfort - and when I eat, I can't get the comfort fast enough. I have a fairly healthy diet - I don't eat much in the way of sweets or junk food - but I think about food all the time. I am about 25% overweight. My partner of 13 years is disgusted with me & my eating habits - how fast I eat, etc. We had a big fight this morning over how I was pushing my food around the plate. I ended up throwing my breakfast away. My challenge right now is living in one and ten - in response to this morning's events, I just want to not eat - which I know is not the answer. Then because I don't know what to do, I'm anxious - which, of course, makes me want to eat. I can be disciplined for short periods of time - up to several months - but then I fall back into mhy old patterns. So -- that's my story
