Binge eater to personal trainer!

A few years ago food controlled EVERYTHING...

I used to restrict my calories to almost nothing and then I would have bouts of uncontrollable binge-eating periods. I would almost literally black out while doing this as if I actually had no control over the food I was putting into my mouth.

There was a point where it got SO BAD that I had to start going to binge-eaters anonymous support groups. I did this for 2 years.

I had struggled with binge eating and calorie restricting for SO LONG that I started to BELIEVE that this was just a part of who I was and there was no way I could ever change.

But on the worst day of my life, after a full all-you-can-eat Hawaiian BBQ buffet and MULTIPLE desserts FOLLOWED BY going home and eating a family bag of Doritos, a whole box of cereal, 4 bowls of oatmeal and a pack of Sour Patch Kids, I sat in the middle of my living room and I bawled my eyes out.

The VERY NEXT DAY I went for help. I hired a personal trainer and I became a trainer myself! I knew I couldn’t do it myself because I had tried and failed so many times before. But slowly and surely I regained confidence, started healing my mind and, as a result, healed my body. Then I started taking on clients and helping them change their bodies too!

If you’ve experienced an eating disorder, or have a bad relationship with food, and you feel lost like I once did, just know that I GET IT! I’ve been there and you are NOT ALONE! 💕💕

    Congratulations on beating your eating disorder and for getting the outside help you needed to do it. I think it's very helpful that you shared your story so that others struggling with the same thing can see that sometimes you just can't do it on your own and need help from professionals. You look absolutely amazing btw.
