Recovering bulimic and working on bettering the quality of my life.. Working on building building my strengths and motivation to push myself out of the box daily. i am on a journey to a happier, healthier & more well balanced me..

Starting weight in 2011 was 315 lbs.
Lost 114 lbs and weighed in at 201 lbs.
This last year I have regained 108 lbs, putting me at 309 lbs.

This journey will primarily be about healing mentally and emotionally first, and then followed by physical. I was diagnosed as bulimic at the very young age of 9 years old and have a lifetime of food abuse and self abuse to heal. I learned to stuff the food and ignore the feelings and it became my safety net and best friend (the food). So, feeling really vulnerable and confused when I take my known safety net away. It's like re-learning everything from the very start.

I am tired of being miserable and having self-pity parties. I'm ready to get right for me and me only, no one else. I want to feel better, feel joy within and find inner peace. I also want to build my self-esteem and find my inner supergirl!

I'm ready to fly!

i have a blog about my weight loss & recovery journey.. link is below ..

    Are you still here? It's been a while since you've updated your status or since I've seen you around... Hopefully you're just lurking and quietly still chasing your own goals but in case you're not, please remember:

    People disappear for all sorts of reasons. Life gets in the way, we forget or change our views on what we deem is important, we get buried under stress, frustration, illness. We sometimes give up, throw in the towel, or just promise ourselves that once things get better/easier/calmer, we will hitch up our socks and come back fresh. We've all done it. We've all been there. And if perhaps, you just need a supportive hug, or a helping hand or a word of inspiration, please know that I am offering it to you with no judgment, no guilt. It seems like it's been a while since you've been here and I just wanted to let you know that you are missed.
