I'm Gina, normally I'm a happy & adventurous person but....

When I realized I was 5'2 and near 200 lbs I felt devastated and decided to turn my life around. I would avoid looking in mirrors and my health was declining. That's not the pathway of life that was intended for me; or ANYONE...LET'S DO THIS TOGETHER!

The first time around that I lost weight I fell into an even unhealthier obsession with food because I restricted myself from everything and I had no idea how to handle my emotions and daily life struggles causing me to spiral down and develop a binge eating disorder which I am slowly conquering one day at a time.

50 Day Binge Free Challenge

Day 7: Are there specific times of day that you have trouble avoiding a binge? How are you working around that now? (Congrats on making it one week!!)

I tend to binge usually when I am frustrated or angry. Ive also realized that I tend to binge when I am at family members house but I do it so discretely that they don’t notice what I’m actually doing. I think this happens because in their house they tend to store a lot of junk food and in my house we don’t buy chips, soda, or candy.

As sad as it is to admit I haven’t been working on it. In my house I feel like I have all control and power but when I’m at family’s house I lack all will power so I haven’t been visiting them due to that which sucks. It sucks that I cannot go hangout with my cousins because there’s an eating disorder that scares me enough to keep me hidden at home. I know that I must work on it but I have no clue how.

Bitch, I do both. How dare you criticize someone just because they don’t prefer or have access to the same physical activities as you. Not to mention that the two activities serve two different purposes. Zumba is more cardio-oriented with mild full-body toning whereas lifting is going to target specific muscle groups more intensely.
If you genuinely think your workout is better than someone else’s, you are a problem. You are one of the reasons our world is so fucked up. Health isn’t about badges, bragging rights, or physical superiority, and your perpetuations of those notions are part of why eating disorders, body dysmorphia, and depression are so rampant in modern society.



Amen.
