I am traveling on a journey to HEALTH and FITNESS. Having experienced years of an eating disorder I now just aim to be be FIT.
In my journey I had to cross the bridge to being healthy and fit. I have experienced a weight that took me to size 18, I binged and binged and used any excuse for my binge except that I was over eating.
I then rushed to the other side disregarding “healthy”, I went from an 18 to a 2 and then 4. How I went days without anything and when I ate I headed to the bathroom did not want any thing in my stomach or the medicine draw for laxative and sometimes I workout out. You think workout was good and it is if you are not trying to burn up twice the few calories you have taken in.
I vow not to be thin but to be healthy fit. I now ignore the STOP sign to deter me from daily workout using specific programs, (thank you BeachBody). I do adhere to the yield sign indicating I need to use portion control on some of my favorite foods. I respect the green light that tells me to stay focus on my goals.
The bridge of my journey to health and fitness does not allow for U turns, (discard all eating disorder habits). Every thing in proportion nutrition, workouts, positive thoughts, hydration, and sleep ……Yes this journey is still on for me.
