I Did Not Think I Was Lovable, Today I Know I Am
Host Susan Branscome talks with a recovered food addict, Dee. Dee has maintained abstinence from sugar and excessive food consumption for 37 years. She has successfully kept off 100 pounds of extra weight during that entire time. The discussion about how shame and secrecy accompany the misuse of food to cope with life's stresses and challenges, is a compelling story familiar to many addicts who use food in a way that is similar to other substance use disorders.
"Recovery from food addiction has let me become the person I was meant to be," shares Dee.
After many failed attempts at dieting, Dee talks about the misery of not being able to control food on her own and how she finally found the solution to her food addiction in recovery. She believes when she became completely honest and embraced the practices around abstinence and worked with other addicts, she was able to achieve long term recovery from the disease of food addiction. Today she lives a full life and loves the serenity of not being focused on her weight or food.
