Snow Days Meant Food Haze

October 17, 2017 10:28 pm Published by

Before FA, Peggy spent 18 years in the classroom as an elementary school teacher. Her average weight during those years was around 325 pounds. A snow day off from school was synonymous with a day of unstoppable binging.

The binge always began the night before with a run to the grocery store for food — boxes and bags of sugar and flour products, a whole host of salty items, and a minimum of two 12-packs of diet soda.

The morning of snow day, Peggy would bounce out of bed as she dove into a breakfast of sugar and flour items, followed by a couple of diet sodas and a four-hour nap. When she woke up, the feast would continue. Evening would find her in front of the TV calling to see what restaurants were still delivering.

Six years later, a snow day for Peggy is very different now that she’s lost 160 pounds and kept it off for six years. She still does night-before grocery runs but for very different kinds of food. She still wakes up early the next morning, but in anticipation of very different things. Peggy has not only found help to stop binging but she no longer wants to binge.

The best part is that when it’s time to go back to school, Peggy’s ready, has no sugar hangover, and her clothes fit just fine.
