You were like a clear day with sunshine
You were my confidant when my eyes rained tears
You were like my prince when I needed saving
You were like the broken chains that set my free
I enjoyed our encounters together before I realized the reality
You really were the knife stabbing me in the back over and over again
You really were the hands trying to choke life out of me
You really were the wind constantly taking me under the water and you knew I couldn’t swim
You really were the monster killing a piece of me moment by moment
I was living in an illusion of what I thought you were
It’s amazing how I can see the real you with the same eyes that I saw the illusion of you
I am no longer confused about who you were
I see you for who you really are

I am what you may call an emotional eater. I wrote those words above to describe my relationship with foods. It seemed as though food was helping me but it was not. It was damaging me with the negative consequence associated with health issue. I was using foods inappropriately. I used foods to comfort negative or positive situations I have had in life. I am learning on this journey how I should view food. Tomorrow will start my third month on this journey towards a healthy and happy life. I am ending the two months mark with a loss of 30lbs. It has been 11 weeks since I have been on this journey. YAY!!!
