Hi, I’m Kim Fleming, and I’m on a journey of health and wellbeing. Like you, I know what it’s like to feel out of control around food, and the confusion and low self esteem that comes with that. I understand the negative thought patterns racing in your head.

It started in my teens.

I couldn’t understand the draw I had to certain foods, specifically refined carbohydrates like cookies, cake, bread, and granola, to name a few. I did everything I knew to do to try to control my cravings. Years of starving myself and then binging. Years of closet eating, and not understanding why I would eat until I would pass out, and wake up with a food hangover the next day. When I wasn’t eating, I was thinking about food. The thoughts were constantly spinning in my head. What was wrong with me?

In my twenties, I started searching.

I read a book about sugar addiction, and knew in my heart that it was talking about me. I would swear it off for a period of time, and then give in once again. And the cycle continued.

I attended Overeaters Anonymous for awhile and sought some counseling at one point. I was married with a supportive husband, and had no reason to be unhappy, but I felt depressed and defeated.

Finally, I understood and accepted that certain foods robbed me of the life I wanted.

I didn’t have the capacity to control them. I accepted the fact that just like the alcoholic needs liquid (but not alcohol) to live, I need food, but not sugar and refined carbohydrates to live. I had to learn to deal not only with the food, but with my negative thought patterns. It was a journey of self-discovery and one that brought me to where I am today.

Now I enjoy:

*Feeding my body healthy food to keep my blood sugars stable

*Moving my body a little every day

*Controlling my thoughts, which create my emotions

*Feeding my spirit, through prayer and meditation

I live a productive, intentional life without being controlled by food, and you can too.
