It Was Me All Along {book review}

I recently read a wonderful memoir by Andie Mitchell. The book describes her life of fighting food addiction and binge-eating, then overcoming the battle and living a healthy life.

From the description of licking the gritty brown sugar from chocolate chip cookie dough off of the beater, Andie Mitchell had me addicted to her story. The story of love. Loss. Family. And most importantly food and all that it does for a person. I, much like Andie and countless others had a rocky start to life and found comfort in the wrapped packages of Little Debbie snack cakes, cupcakes with inch-thick fluffy frosting mounded on it's moist tops...yep food and I love each other. 
The journey that Michell takes us on is enjoyable, heartbreaking, and relate-able. I root for her and hope that finds the will to resist that late-night binge every time stress comes around. 
Andie Mitchell's memoir is written beautifully and with such grace that I could visualize myself there beside her in each and every moment she talks us through. Through every morsel of cake or last bite of pasta. I was there. I am happy with the life she was able to turn around for herself and found myself smiling at the end. Happy for her and the journey she took, because without it she wouldn't be who she is and be able to write a story that opens my eyes to my own food demons. The demons of food addiction and being able to over come those and rise above healthy and vibrant. I recommend this book to anyone who has one too many cupcakes, chips, or soda pop to fill a void that needs to be filled.
