Frequently I need to remind myself that not everything is within my control.  I think that's part of the reason why I had/have an eating disorder.  In college I was going through an extremely tough year of school.  Academically it was my toughest year yet.  Emotionally I was spiraling out of control.  I was engaged to someone I loved as a friend (who was one of the most giving and kind people I had ever known) and didn't know how to admit I was in love with someone else (who is now my amazing husband).  I felt my heart being ripped in half.  I didn't want to hurt such an incredibly caring person but I knew that marrying him was not the right thing for me.  I felt that spark with JB and was too afraid to confront it head on.  I won't say that it didn't help being around a bunch of "Barbie" types at Miami all the time.  I felt pressure to be thin and hated my body.  Throwing up my food gave me some kind of control that I felt was missing in my life.  I'm very close to my parents and have always been pretty honest with them.  Holding all these secrets in was eating my alive.  I was miserable and unhappy.  When I finally let loose everything that had been going on to my ex-fiance, current husband, and parents I felt like such a load had been unleashed.  I was able to start recovering mentally and physically once I started being honest with myself and everyone around me.  

Hopefully you are able to be honest with yourself - losing weight isn't about just shedding the pounds.  It's also about being healthy both mind and body.  Honesty with yourself and others will give you the ability to find this success.
