My mother thinks that food can make anyone happy. It had the opposite effect on me though, but that is because I allowed it to get out of control. I was always chubby, but I became obese as an adult. I thought I was beyond help because I was in my 40s and well over a hundred pounds overweight. I felt worthless, but that changed this last year. That is when I decided one day that it was not too late for me, and I consulted a life coach in NYC to see if there was anything that could be done to help me.
My doctor had told me to lose weight, but I needed more than that.
