As a woman who used to be over 300 pounds, carrying my weight as a very visible coping skill, I can tell you that losing the weight will not release your pain. It's the other way around: When you release your pain, the weight will no longer be necessary for you to cope. It's burying your pain that keeps your weight on. You have NOTHING to feel shame about. Shame and blame is squarely on the shoulders of your abuser, the pedophile, your father. None of what he did is on you; all of it is on HIM. Your weight is about pain, not shame. Please seek out some form of counselling or therapy in order to help you deal with the effects of the sexual abuse, and deal with the betrayal that it was your own father who was the offender. Not to mention that their may well have been enablers, family members who had to have seen signs, but did nothing. June, you didn't deserve to be sexually abused. You certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
