Here’s to a week for the unconventional before and after photos, National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. For most of my life, I’ve been heavier, and consequently shamed and belittled for my weight. When I started college, however, I weighed 103 pounds, was eating 400-600 calories a day, doing about 90 minutes of cardio daily, and most importantly, I was anorexic. I was 15 pounds underweight, but no one thought to say anything because they were too busy applauding me for my unnatural weight loss. This is me calling them out. This is my telling them they were wrong. This is me thanking my real life and tumblr friends for everything they done to get me to the wonderful place I am today. So fuck you traditional pictures of “healthy”, I may be fat, but I beat my eating disorder.
FUCK YEA this makes me ridiculously happy.
ALWAYS REMEMBER THIS

Josh Peck stated that:
“I made a conscious effort to lose weight because I knew I could be happier as well as being healthier. I started by going on a diet a year and a half ago and I got a personal trainer, but I definitely have a healthier lifestyle now. Also I feel that because I do so much television, I am a better role model. I don’t really understand why I should be a role model, but I know that kids do look up to me, so it is my responsibility to motivate people and be inspiring. I hope that I can do that for kids. It doesn’t really matter what you look like though, it is who you are that matters, of course.”
Inspiration for both males and females.
So i’ve been super MIA for the last month or so, just getting back into the swing of university and work and all that. I’m super busy, but I think I can always find time for tumblr :P
Exercise: At the moment i’m training for a half marathon. I’ve got all sorts of fun runs coming up in the next month :)
Electric run: 5km
Nike She Runs: 10km
Half Marathon: 21.1km
Mentally: I’ve been struggling quite a bit, but I have a good support network here and I live with my best friends, so that’s alright I guess. On that note, boys suck.
Nutrition: I’m just eating everything in moderation. Not dieting or counting calories but just eating healthily and working out seems to be doing wonders for me (not quick progress or anything, but it’s so nice not obsessing.) This is the first time i’ve been exercising towards a fitness goal rather than for aesthetics and a physique.
Progress shots - still a long way to go
