My name is Emily. I am going to come right out and admit it, for the first time in my life.
I am addicted to food.
Since 5th grade I have felt that I needed to be smaller. I am by nature very short. Very short. Yet I eat like a teenage boy! I eat healthy, but I’m realizing I eat healthy when people are around, but when no one is around, I eat unhealthy things.
I am very embarrassed to say this.
The worst part is, I needed to be tiny in order to be recruited by a coach for my sport. I planned to loose it all this past summer, but instead, I gained 10 pounds. I never, ever, ever! gain 10 pounds. I am not this girl. I’m lucky that now, I have actually chosen another school that I like much more and I cannot be recruited anyway. Now, I’m doing it because I want to be healthy, especially before college.
I went through a very hard time last summer and since then, I have lost a lot of self confidence in my health. I have gone on so many diets that I feel like I can’t loose weight, but deep down I know it is my own fault because I quit.
There’s a lot of things that are on my wish list right now, but I know I can’t get any of them without cutting this addiction first. It is truly holding me back from everything else that I want.
So, that’s me. I’m a food addict that needs to loose weight before I can make the rest of my wishes come true. Please help support me. I know I will need it. I know I can do this, though.
From here on out, there are no wish lists, only will lists. And will starts now.
