I'm crazy. I'm a ballet dancer who wants to get out of the corps de ballet, and be a principal. The thing holding me back? My weight. The reason my weight isn't changing? I binge. And don't purge... at all(luckily enough!). A 152 lb ballet dancer is not what most people expect when they go to see the ballet. They want someone lean and toned and beautiful. I don't currently fit that profile.
My journey actually started a few years ago, with it becoming more and more prominent in the past year. I used to hover around 130, and remember promising myself (after seeing terrible pics of myself) that I would never get over 140... That diet failed, leaving me weighing 145. Then came the two piece tutus, causing myself to join a gym, but only get down to 140 before the show. UGH! I was hopping mad, and managed by Nutcracker time to get back to 130, by using intermittent fasting, however, I felt like I had a huge eating disorder the entire time, so that went out the window. I managed to stay in the 130's for the next show, however, then we had a huge horrible break, no class, no rehearsal, and I creeped up to 150. The largest I've ever been. I fasted for a week before the next show, getting down to 135, but broke the fast badly, and am now back to 150. I want to at least get back to 130 by Nutcracker, and probably 118-120 by Sleeping Beauty, on Valentine's day. I can and I will do it!

No, I don't have any recent pictures... And I don't really want any. They make me depressed, and undermine my general positive attitude. :P
