A binge eater for years, I stuffed my emotions down with food and buried them deep inside my stomach, constipating my being.

By sharing my own personal struggle of my addiction, how it started unconsciously, grew incrementally, and then took on a life of its own, My Big Fat Head has given folks with a range of addictions - from eating to gambling to drinking to shopping - hope. I share the journey of what I know now, and will be forever grateful for, would have caused me to cringe years ago - that mental, spiritual, and physical healing far surpasses that one bite, sip, or emotional high.
