I consider myself a fighter. And I’ve recently become inspired – by other bloggers! These individuals are amazing! They are all focused on nutritional and physical goals, and are a bit like me.
Since college, I have struggled with bulimia. I cannot pinpoint exactly when my struggle began, but I remember thinking “That was the worst meal I’ve ever eaten.” and knew that purging would be the easiest way to correct my mistake. I spiraled downward from that point, always justifying my poor eating habits by “fixing” it later. I compensated with more time at the gym and became obsessed with eating healthier foods when I was around my friends and family. Meanwhile, I was secretly overindulging – even with healthy foods – and purging. When I started, I was at my highest weight at 160 lbs. At 5’7″, I was by no means seriously overweight, but I was definitely lacking muscle tone, endurance and heart health. More importantly, I was extremely uncomfortable in my own skin.
Fast forward 6 years and I occasionally take a few steps back, but with the help of my husband (My, how we’ve changed!)
I intend to move my own blog in a new direction – a documentation of my new, fit lifestyle and my nutritional choices. I hope that it serves to motivate me to always move in the forward direction.
