I’m Not Gonna Miss 95% of my life to Weight 5% Less

For 20 years (you read that correctly), I dedicated my life to weight loss.
Smaller was better. Thin meant WIN!
From calorie restriction to over-exercise, anorexia to bulimia- I abused my body for two decades.
I passed on events where I would be expected to eat (especially if I assumed that there wouldnโ€™t be healthy options).
I missed stuff- missed my life. I passed on vacation time with my family because I ๐™๐™–๐™™ to get a run in.
I was miserable and my relentless pursuit of losing pounds was never rewarded with a lower number on the scale.
I lived with constant frustration because I was working ๐™จ๐™ค hard- being ๐™จ๐™ค diligent about my food choices, but couldnโ€™t lose a single pound. My body was stressed out from being under-nourished and over-cardioโ€™d and it was struggling to recover after my years of bingeing and purging. Everything was out of whack and stress took such a toll on my body (and contributed me to holding on to extra weight!!).
Today, I genuinely enjoy my life. I order the cocktail. I work out a few days a week. I eat when Iโ€™m hungry.
And I weigh less.
