Addicted to Food
Compulsive overeater, 32 years old, 5'1", 265 lbs.
At just 32 years old, Tinisha is worried that she is going to die young, before she gets a chance to live at all. Her doctor has told her that she already has arthritis, high blood pressure, and she is at risk for a stroke. Raised in a home full of addiction and violence, Tinisha learned to fend for herself as a youngster. Food became an escape from her troubles and she hasn't been able to stop eating as an adult. Tinisha has been married to her husband Don for seven years, but during that time she's seen her weight spiral out of control. She's tried countless diets and even attended Overeaters Anonymous, but to no avail. Tinisha wants to know why she can't stop herself from eating before it's too late.
