Weekly Secret


I'm learning about eating disorders with my youngest daughter, though hers is the opposite of this. Her low self-esteem leads her to eat in excess. She likes to sneak food when I'm not (or she thinks I'm not) looking. And, of course, she's not eating too many celery sticks; it's the greasiest or sweetest foods she can find.

I've never had to deal with this, so it is a learning experience. If she had the high metabolism I do, I would not be as concerned, but she does not. Her body type is more like her mother's and so she is piling on the pounds. She is in counseling and I am trying to do what I can here at home, but I worry it's not enough.
