I’m 18 years old. In all my life, I’ve never been thin or skinny. I grew up in a food-loving family and so growing up I attained the habit of eating a lot.
I’ve been on a diet for the longest time, going on and off, going up and down. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t obsessed with my weight.
Throughout my weight loss journey I have tried purging and starving. I even went through a mini bulimia and binge eating disorder for several months, and I’m lucky I was able to fight through them. It wasn’t until recently when I decided to try to do this in a perfectly healthy way. I’ve always wanted to be skinny and thin, but now my version of a dream body is one that is strong, fit, and toned, and healthy. I’m still struggling with keeping control of my cravings, workouts, and willpower. What I know for sure is, I’m going to get there.
