The Beginning

My name is Sheila and I started this blog because my boyfriend is tired of hearing me babbling constantly about food. Like everyone alive, I have a long history with food, and like some people, it’s not always been the best relationship. As a child, I was constantly teased for being too skinny, and I was taught to eat as many calories as I can to gain weight. I’ve been called anorexic, told I need to eat a cheeseburger, and called twig. I’ve been sent to nutritionists, who taught me to eat a lot of ice cream, add ALL the toppings, add mayo to all of my sandwiches, and charged me $300. As an adult, a lifetime of learning to eat junk has caught up with me and now I can’t smell a brownie without gaining another 10 pounds. Now I am trying to learn to eat healthy, which I have come to learn means I can no longer eat anything I normally ate.

I have two reasons for making this blog public. First, I hope to raise awareness that teaching a skinny kid to eat fatty foods, for the sake of gaining weight, isn’t necessarily always the best solution. Healthy eating habits are best learned young, and being “too skinny” doesn’t mean that the person should eat more junk food. A skinny child that eats junk food to gain weight turns into an adult with high cholesterol. Second, I would like to have some input on my journey, and I welcome anyone who wants to join me.

The main thing I hope to accomplish is gaining and sharing knowledge of how to eat healthy. I want this to be a collaboration between myself and all of my readers. See something that could be improved upon? Please, leave a comment and let me know your suggestions!
