Weight loss, I ate myself to over 220lbs :

Weight loss, I ate myself to over 220lbs
See that girl on the left? That was a girl who was days away from losing her dad. I was going through the hardest time of my life, and I turned to food. I ate myself to over 220lbs when my dad was dying/died. You know what I now realize? Food didn’t make my problems go away. It just added to them.⁣

So here I am now, facing another tough time in life. And I am so determined to not turn to food as my coping mechanism. It’s so easy to throw in the towel on yourself when your faced with some tough times. But why? What does that do? What will not taking care of myself and undoing what I’ve worked so hard on accomplish? Will it make the problem better? Absolutely not. ⁣

Don’t get me wrong, I am not sitting here obsessively tracking every single thing and worried about the number on the scale tomorrow when there are so many other important things I need to focus on. But I do know going to McDonald’s right now isn’t going to make anything better. I will make as many good choices as I can and focus on myself so I can be there for people that need me. ⁣

It took me years to transform not just my body but mind to realize these things. To realize food didn’t bring my dad back. It didn’t make him stop being sick. But it did make ME sick. And unhealthy. So here’s to being stronger than that little voice inside me telling me it’s okay to just eat everything bc you’re sad. Tough times don’t last, but tough people do ☺️­čą░⁣
