Been there & done that. From personal experience I realize that only we can break our cycle/vortex. In other words, it's not something that takes care of itself (drat!). For many of us with food issues, or food whatever, we have to dig down deep over & over to find what works for us & for the motivation that keeps us out of the vortex. I experienced it as a downward spiral so I called it being trapped in my vortex of energy. It took me many decades of up & down until I found what did & didn't work for me & how to keep finding the inner strength to endure & maintain the momentum to stop falling back into the vortex.
