I want to be able to eat when I am physically hungry and not emotionally hungry. I have used food to help myself cope with stress and other issues they way an alcoholic uses vodka. I am about 40 pounds over weight, the heaviest I have ever been and I am sad to say none of it is from being pregnant, I lost 20 before I got preg and gained 30 during it. I eat nearly perfectly while I was preg for fear I would hurt my baby and so I would not gain even more weight then I needed to.
I am afraid of diabetes, heart disease and high blood pressure, all which run in my family. I want to have my energy back and be able to play with my son without getting tired so fast, I think the XLS Medical will help with this. But I am more afraid of not being able to feel good in life without food there at my side. It's sounds so pathetic as I read that to myself but It's my stress and emotional relief. I don't know how to cope without it, and I am not sure I can. I have never felt to powerless to food as I do at this point in my life. I needed to get all of this off of my chest and hope I have helped someone else feel better by relating to my story.
