found that for me, being fat was a shield against having to be close or
intimate with others. It was protection from possibly being hurt. That
compounded my problems, though, I began to see over the long-term. I was
overeating in the short-term moment of pain, to soothe my pain, but in
the long-run, I was making my pain worse. This snowballed into a massive
obesity problem
(400 pounds of misery). It’s not easy to look at yourself, and see your
problems. It helps if others are doing this kind of self-analysis, too.
