I Experienced My First Hater

A Message To Anyone Who Thinks Overweight People Are Just Glutinous

I read some words on Facebook the other day and they triggered something inside me.  I had to share my thoughts on this because I want peoples view to change.  I want people to see that telling someone who is overweight to just exercise more and eat less is wrong.  I want them to know that it doesn’t help and that these overweight people aren’t just glutinous or lazy.

4 Tips To Help You Stop Binge Eating

I developed anorexia in high school after a number of losses.  It was a way to find control as everything else around me felt out of control.  Shortly after high school I moved to another city with my family, as I was enrolled to take my EMR (emergency medical responder) there.  I began to struggle with binge eating and felt completely out of control again.   Continue reading “4 Tips To Help You Stop Binge Eating (video)”
