So, everyone who follows my blog knows the whole point of it was to avoid the notorious freshman 15 pound weight gain. (Also to help focus on my eating disorder recovery and nutrition). Well guys, here is my progress:
At the beginning of the year, I was about 140 pounds. Now, I weigh about 110-115, depending on the day. I run about 5 miles on the treadmill at college every day. I restrict myself to 1100 calories, for my body type this is acceptable- I am a 5 ft tall, petite girl as you can see. I used to vomit everyday instead of eating healthy. Now most of my diet is salads, vegetables, usually a small snack or two a day, and just generally good food. I keep it all down, most of the time now. I have become obsessed with exercising, my doctor says it is still a form of an eating disorder. But I consider working out a lot more healthier than vomiting. Even though my freshman year is over, I still am going to post everyday. Keep track of what I do. It’s a lifestyle for me now.
My new goal is to get abs. Abs people can see. Not just lose weight and beat bulimia for college. I want to be fit and healthy, for life. I might rename the blog when summer starts. But I wanted to say thank you to all who have supported my journey. It really means a lot. All of you who have fitness blogs or are on your own journeys… don’t give up. Make it a lifestyle too. If I can do it, you can too :)
I know people have been asking for an update on my progress visually, so here was me today after the gym. The scale said 115 lbs, but I did not eat lunch yet so my stomach is pretty much empty… still, what do you guys think? It’s been about seven months since I have started this blog, and really tried beating my eating disorder.
