This book is called, “It Was Me All Along” and is written by the well-spoken and beautiful Andie Mitchell. This is a book that touches me very deeply, as it sounds similar to my story. She tells of her childhood and how she bottled every emotion into eating. Happy? Eat. Sad? Eat. Mad? Eat. and so on. This is often how I explain my issues with food. She tells of how she came to grips with the reasons she was eating and what she did to change not only her mind, but her body too. She tells things that generally the outside world wouldn’t know, unless they felt it too. She states things in such a way that it helps others know that they are indeed not alone in this fight. She has opened my eyes and allowed me to know that I am not the only one that has had this relationship with food. It is a battle, a non-stop, on going life long battle. But all along, that person was her, and this person is simply, me. I received this book from Blogging for books, for the purpose of review.
