So this used to be me, it’s scary putting this out there but I feel like I have to talk about it for people to understand how truly far this journey has brought me, but also as proof that it is doable for anyone who tries.
I used to comfort eat as a child into my adulthood to compensate for everything that was going on. I knew I wasn’t attractive or pretty so I overcompensated by being a super friendly doormat, who just wanted to be accepted for who they were inside.
Food was the only thing that comforted me, it was also the reason I was bullied, ridiculed and teased by not only people I went to school with but by close family members and people I didn’t know. It hurt, but I learned things ill never forget about people and being judged, especially now I’ve lost all the weight.
