I think I actually did make this thread awhile back. This was meant to be posted on a totally different website in a p rivate forum of all females. Woops. Mom brain.

Eh. I was a bit "chubby" when I was 14/15/16. Chubby in quotations because I wasn't CHUBBY - but I was chubby for my normal body - if that makes sense? I just kind of over ate and didn't really eat healthy. It didn't really help, that my parents have been vegetarians all of my life (I was too, in phases), and when we moved in with my grandma I ate stuff like salami in tons because it was new (to me).
Around the second half of 16 I drastically lost weight and looking back - I was anorexic. Doesn't help that generally I have a fast metabolism and my genes really help keeping thing. I lost about 40 pounds (I weighed 145 at my heaviest - I'm 5'8") and we extremly underweight.
I did end up catching myself and am happy with my weight now. It's taken me a few years to stop counting calories, though I still find myself slipping now and again. Esp. when I unintentionally loose weight because of stress (I stop eating, because I don't have the time) and its a "Hey! my body looks great this way!).

I do eat pretty healthy though. We make a meal plan before we go grocery shopping and pretty much plan what we're going to eat that week. Lots of veggies - hardly any meat (I can't cook meat). All and all pretty well rounded.

You are the whisper in the wind, and the silence in dark.
You are the autumn rain, and the spring flowers.
You are the joy when I laugh, and the sorrow when I cry.
You are the earth beneath my feet, and the air in the sky
But most of all, you are my heart.
Run free, Beautiful Girl.

No I do not.

I know I use it for distractions, to self medicate, comfort, and probably some other things I'm not thinking of at the moment. I am over weight, and have always been on the edge of chubby my whole life.

Bad eating habits and using food to cheer you up is what I learned to do growing up. Old habits die hard.....actually, I don't think old habits ever really die, I think we can tame them if we try very hard.

Yes and no. I'm conscious of eating healthy, but I have a tendency to over eat... I'm hungry a LOT. I enjoy eating bad things. And I eat when I'm stressed and to celebrate/commiserate etc.

Guess it sort of depends. I have Crohn's. mostly hates me, regardless.

Otherwise, I just eat what I can and try to eat healthy. Some of it is for comfort, I guess, since I prefer warm meals some days because I get cold easily.

Not really, I hate cooking with a passion. When the kids were all younger we had a sit down dinner every night, but now that the kids are older, it's your on your own. I tend to eat what's quick and convenient in the house. That could be a bowl of cereal or a bag of rice. Sometimes canned soup and a grill cheese sandwich. Not the healthiest choices. I have never had a weight problem but the last year I have noticed my middle getting thicker.

I don't have any real emotional attachment to food, but my eating habits still aren't healthy. I consume it in varying degrees of too much and not enough, eating one or two larger meals a day instead of four small ones. I drink way too much diet redbull and eat too much salt and too much carbs. I feel like **** and look worse.
