Hello, my name is Lauren, and I’m from Boston.
Life has never been too easy, but lately things have been going much better for myself. I personally struggled with emotional eating/binge eating for my whole life, and was extremely unhappy with my body and self. I never felt comfortable, and when I moved to Boston from a small town, I decided to change things.
I wound up becoming addicted to the gym, and ate minumally (400-600 cal per day). I lost 40 pounds in a month and a half, and every one seemed to notice. I loved feeling skinny and being able to fit into small clothing, but it wasn’t too long until I started binge eating again. It was something I didn’t know how to handle, and I couldn’t even figure out what was wrong with me. Now, after gaining 20 pounds back, I think I may have found myself.
Life isn’t about the scale or the size on your jeans, but about health and developing good habits, so you can be nice to your body, and yourself. No one should deprive, just live in moderation, and with health in mind. I’m a vegetarian myself, and I can already feel the changes in my body as I begin to respect it and live life better.
