When I was young, I wasnt really obese or significantly huge, but I admit that I was overweight. But remember how kids can be really childish especially when making fun of people. I was the butt of all jokes being cord and all.
Though I was playing it cool as if the jokes were not affecting me, I felt the other way around. I was 10 back then and instead of fighting back, I just smiled and laughed with everybody else as if I was made of stone not feeling a singly hurt. I didnt cry with tears, but I was crying deep inside.
During that time, all I had was flight reactions. My confidence started dropping. My self-esteem went as low as it could go. Instead of making friends with everybody else, I went straight home after class. Instead of being teased, I preferred eating. Everything went down until I found my one true comfort in food. I didnt care anymore about my weight, up to a point that I was in denial that I have already gotten obese. My diet turned from bad to worst.
Food can really make us feel a lot wonderful and relieve us of stress. Various food groups influence our brains to release happy hormones such as endorphins and serotonins. Examples of happy foods are chocolates, cream pies, ice creams, and pasta. I found the soothing effects of food to my crying heart. Food made me feel good. My sadness pushed me to eating and find comfort in happy foods. I was in a state called emotional eating, wherein I ate relentlessly as dictated by my emotions.
I had no control over the pounds that were piling up. Eating became my best friend and I turned a blind eye when it came to my health. What once was emotional eating became compulsive eating. Dieting didnt work for me, it just made my life hell. I kept losing pounds, but gained more than what I lost afterwards, and the cycle was like that of a yo-yo. I tried weight loss pills as well, but I didnt want to do that for a long time.
By far, the most effective weight loss program for me is the master cleanse method. It focuses more on detoxification of harmful checmicals. The master cleanse method has a lot of juicing recipes to help us detoxify.
