As a recovering food addict, I have maintained a 60-pound weight loss for ten years. I say that with tremendous gratitude because for more than twenty years prior to my recovery I suffered the immense frustration of perpetual dieting and an escalation of self-loathing. My high self-esteem, firmly fostered by my parents, was slowly eroding. Eventually, the way I felt about my body was the way I felt about myself, and suffice it to say, those feelings weren’t positive.
I would have to say that I had the good fortune to know and love other addicts. In doing so, I began to understand my own suffering better. I was convinced that my inability to maintain a healthy weight, or a sane relationship with food, was because of some tragic character flaw. Although I was successful in many areas of my life, in my mind, there was something deeply wrong with me because of my failure to stop compulsively eating. It wasn’t until I started to work with, know, and love others battling addiction that I came to realize that I was fighting with a disease – the disease of food addiction. My problem wasn’t some terminal lack of self-restraint, it was a process in my brain that high-jacked my willpower.
