I had always been the person that everyone turned to, the confident and the support system. I had a really hard time putting myself first and talking about my own pain with friends and family who often felt so comfortable divulging what they were going through to me. I turned to food as means of letting out how I was feeling. I used to hide food from my family, do separate grocery shops and eat in my room It took me a long time to realize how harmful this was and how I really felt about my life and my size. I tried to convince myself that I enjoyed my body. I had boyfriends who liked me but I still found it a challenge to look in the mirror.
Today, my life is completely different I have lost over 17 pounds in 12 days!
Health and fitness means so much to me. I eat clean, I work out several times a week and I feel great about where I am now.
I would love to have my story posted and have the chance to help others with these struggles as I know how hard it can be to get started but how good it feels once you have.
