These two pictures are almost exactly two years apart from September. The first picture was my sophomore year of college when I started running competitively. I was way over exercising ,not eating nearly enough, had thinning hair, always was cold, counted calories, and had no social life. My ED consumed me and my life. I was miserable inside. The picture on the right was at the beginning of this school year( senior year). This summer was when I truly started to recovery and start to feel freedom. I no longer count calories or weight myself or food. I have a social life, great friends, an amazing boyfriend, and have mended my relationship with my mom. I am no longer scared to go out to eat in fact I get excited about it! I am able to go out with friends and live like a 21 year old. I have come such a long way in just this past 6 months. I do still struggle with somethings and have ED thoughts. But the difference is now I am strong enough to fight them. I know they are all a lie and will do no good. I have so many things I want to do in my life and experience. I told myself I would not let ED get in my way. Everyday is a challenge and a way to better myself. Great things take time and I am dedicated to fighting towards recovery everyday. There is hope after an eating disorder and a beautiful life to live. ?
Happy Sunday!! This morning I made some peanut butter pumpkin pancakes with @tryabouttime peanut butter protein and they turned out so well! They were so fluffy and thick! I will post the recipe in the comments! My mom and I are going to be snowshoeing up the mountain and then watching football later with my daddy! Man it feels good to be home! I hope you all have a great day full of relaxing and fun! ❄️? #pancakes#healthy#health#healthypancakes#nutrition#protein#healthyfood#healthybreakfast#healthyeating#eathealthy#cleaneating#fit#fitness#fitfood#eatforabs#eatforhealth#banana#almomdbutter#breakfast#yummy#pumpkin#peanutbutter
I just hope to inspire other girls, help them, and give them hope, because I know how awful it is. And it can seem like things will never get better.
? In recovery from anorexia ? at my highest weight ever in my "bulk" last winter ? today, working towards a #badassbody! ?? •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• So you guys know I don't share pictures of my body very often, since for me that isn't what working out and eating healthy is all about - even if it is a bonus! I also don't want my Instagram to be about how I look but instead about how I feel.. BUT I decided that I wanted to show you my progress and also share with you my insights. You see, even though these are 3 different looking bodies with different weights I have come to love and accept all of them. Why? Because they are all me. However I may look I will still always be, accept and LOVE me. ❤️ It took so long for me to come to this point, to realise that I am not defined by how I look or what I weigh and guess what? When I realised this and started working with my body because I love it, not against it because I hate it - magic started to happen. Today I am happy, healthy and stronger than ever. Living in moderation, eating ? and drinking ? when my heart needs it and ? with ? when my body need is. I'm killing it at the gym, growing and evolving and enjoying every second. ? I have found my balance. I have found self love and acceptance and I have grown more than I ever thought was possible. ❤️ You guys. Recovery is possible, it is worth it and if I can do it so can you! •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• ?http://eatmoveimprove.fitnessguru.com

Instagram is so far from real life... If you can’t stay distanced, you should stay off those kinds of platforms.
