I started when I lost my first baby got worse after i lost my second, when pregnant with my 3rd baby (now 6) I just ate what I wanted after thought I'd loose it but got pregnant again quickly with twins lost one but my daughter survived and is now 5 yrs old

It has taken years to get over loosing those babies and I always think of them x

My heart goes out to all of you:grouphugg:
I comfort ate to deal with issues around my adoption that caused depression for years.
Some things can never go away from our thoughts,we just somehow,hopefully,learn how to deal with it. I am now in a much happier place in my life:)

Well done to you all for making the change and starting the rest of your life.

I comfort ate because I was bullied a lot at school as a result of my skin condition, Icthyosis, I have this bad and it was not diagnosed until I was 29, now I have the diagnosis and the correct creams it is under control, as a result cannot have children as it could result in a harlequin baby.

I was called flaky and had the cadburys flake song sang at me in class everyday and my coat and stuff stolen and graffitied with flaky in big letters, I thought there was never a chance a man would ever want me and so hid in my room with books and food.

I have a very bad relationship with food.

I grew up in a house where there was not much love and listening to things my dad said to my mum about her weight; fat cow, fat this fat that, you should be ashamed of yourself.

Then when I got to about 13 he turned that on me, you will just be like your mother blah blah.

So I ate ...... in secret... and anytime someone let me down I ate ...in secret.

When I was at my happiest after my 3 rd son I lost a lot of weight and kept it off until my husband cheated on me with my friend at a party ( a one nighter) :cry:

Things are still a bit strange, but we are making plans and coming through it.

I put on a lot after that my confidence and security was shot. I couldn't leave the house for fear of seeing her.

2009 I decided enough was enough and joined sw in nov 09.

By April I had lost 4 stone and decided to go to spain to see my parents, the first thing my dad said "you look pregnant" my mum said well if you lost 4 stone you must have been "some size" and that was the first of the critiscm I got, it lasted days until I snapped.

my mum kicked me and my son out and we were left alone in the hills of spain trying to get to central Alicante.

My mum has told people lies about me, humiliated me, called me worse than ****, told my husband he has never achieved anything and said awful things about each one of my sons just after they were born.

I have not seen them since or talked to them. However, I got back from spain and struggled again with food once again my confidence gone.

You would think with all the things my dad said about her she would be a bit more careful about using spiteful words, but she gets a kick out of it.

Now my head is right I see light at the end of the dark and will no longer let them spoil it for me.

My mums mum is the most beautiful woman I have ever known and I love her so much. How can I woman like this give birth to my mother.

Wasn't going to put all that but it just kept flowing :sigh:

I have to stop letting other people dictate the way my life will go and start living for me. I do get hurt easy I think i'm just programmed that way.

Thanks

Small narrow minded people can be so rude and nasty, so pleased for you getting a diagnosis and being able to move on a little!! don't let the bullies win, they are the losers things can turn around as you get older, i was bullied at school and hate anyone who bullies others and can't help but make a stand against them even though it can get me in hot water sometimes!! stood up to a real nasty peace of work in my last job and even though it wasn't easy i felt i got one up on her and she left everyone alone for quite some time!! all the best liz

I have been off work with anxiety and stress for 4 months because of a bully, and I am 50 in May:sigh:
However recently decided "I am better than her" and intend going back to work soon and showing her I will no longer let her intimidate me:p
