    Thank you for this story. It is a great reminder that a binge is a binge is a binge. Any addiction/compulsion can lead to insane thinking where we cannot see the obvious and wind up hurting ourselves. I am a firm believer that together we get better and I appreciate hearing your story.

    I believe a key to keeping the pounds off is the ability to maintain the weight without exercising more than 30 minutes a day. If I need to step up the exercise because the weight is going up and I m already exercising 30 minutes 5 days a week, that means I need to look at what I am eating.

      I think there should be balance in everything. You’re right about obsessions. You have an interesting point about food & exercise. I think everybody’s goals and bodies are different. For me 30 minutes isn’t enough but 60 works for my body. I don’t think limiting things too much is a balance either. It’s easy to slip back into old habits.

    Thanks again Lisa for sharing my 8 mistakes here. I was actually kind of therapeutic writing it.

      I’m sure it was! I know that writing about my injury helped put it in perspective for me.

    As a longtime follower (is a year a long time) of Steena’s blog, and claiming her as my Twitter sister, I’m very happy to see this post. I knew it would happen eventually. 😉
