Tuesday, January 05, 2016      5 comments

I think I can relate to nearly all of the emotional eating traps (The Diet Trap Solution, Dr Beck). I know I've used food to numb the pain of an unpleasant marriage and a home life not meeting my expectations. I know now that food doesn't meet t... Read more
