My Story.

Like many other situations, I don't think one can come to understand what an eating disorder is like until they personally go through it themselves. It is an unexplainable addiction that I wouldn't wish on anyone. I was 20 years old when I looked in the mirror and finally saw the truth. I had a form of bulimia and at 5'6", I weighed in at 100 pounds. I had become my worst nightmare, and I couldn't stop. I was addicted to working out, and everything I ate, healthy or not, I wanted to sweat out by running another mile or 2. I disappeared from the world and my friends because almost all my socializing revolved around food. I became too anxious and overwhelmed because I never wanted to eat what was offered. There were several moments where I would eat something that I thought was "bad" for me and I would cry for hours. I stopped having my monthly period, my hair became dry and brittle, and my skin broke out into severe mind was possessed with nothing else but food and being skinny. People were no longer important and I had lost my happy spirit. Does this sound like YOU in any way, or do you know someone going through a similar situation? This blog is the start of something new that will tell my story and hopefully inspire others and give them courage--no matter what sort of obstacle they are going through. I overcame this huge obstacle in my life, and so can you. This blog will be full of tips, motivational stories, quotes, fitness, food.. just about everything. Im grateful for the opportunity to take you through my story
