Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. ~Colossians 3:23-24

Hi ya'll

My name is Briana Berne, but everyone calls me Bri. I'm a college student, and I play on the varsity women's tennis team for a DI university in the southern conference. This past summer, I buckled down with my fitness and though I had several binging episodes, I exercised so much that I wasn't set back much at all. Anyway, I came to school this fall feeling great and like I was on the right track, but then well...college happened. I started eating all the wrong things in the dining halls and then I started getting into drinking hard liquor and whatnot at least once a week. On top of all this, I was struggling with my bingeing habit still. Still, my weight stayed pretty steady since I was playing a lot of tennis and working out often. Then, winter came and my fall tennis season ended. And let's just say the holidays are no good for someone struggling with major overeating. So...now I just know I've moved from 150 lbs to 170 and I just hardly trust myself anymore. Right when it seems I'm done with this destructive habit, it comes right back and hurts me worse. I've always had trouble accepting that I went from being extremely fit and 120 lbs to what I am now. And the thing is, I've come to love my curvier body, but I can't love the extra curves that come from this overindulgence. I love myself when I'm doing the right things, not so much wrong. Ugh. I just want to be a slow foodie again and someone who really takes care of herself and is confident in herself. So, though I definitely want to lose weight, I want to consistently and constantly live healthily. I want to trust myself again. I need a community I can grow and go on this journey with. I hope I've found that here.
