Why I eat

I don't want to steal the thunder from my video, so I'll keep this brief ;) There's lots of videos out there about gastric sleeve. And they're mostly focused on what people eat, what's happened to their hunger, and how much weight they've lost. It's all very encouraging. But I wanted to talk about an issue that's very personal to me; and that's why I eat, and how I got to 250 lbs in the first place. Knowing that I use food way beyond it's intended use of nutrition, I know that I'm going to have to deal with these underlying issues of using food to deal with my emotions.

I've been in therapy on and off over the past six years to try to work on some of my issues with processing emotions. But I've never focused on the food/eating aspect specifically, and I think now is the time. Wondering if others out there feel the same. Best, gastricsleeve4me
