‘I Used To Be Fat’ Poll: What Drives You To Overeat?

During last week’s episode of “I Used To Be Fat,” Janelle learned that the extensive amount of time she was spending hanging out with family negatively impacted her health. Her relatives weren’t driving her up a wall like some kin can; rather, they drove her to overeat. The large amounts of fattening foods that they chowed down during their weekly shindigs was harming J’s body, and part of her road to weight loss meant acknowledging this bad habit. Once Janelle learned how poorly she was eating at family functions, she was able to change her diet.
