It's possible to end emotional eating permanently: here's how.

They told me I was too thin, and then told me that I was too big.⁣

They said “with your frame, you just can’t pull off carrying extra weight.”⁣

By gaining some weight, I had finally got my period again after years of not having it.⁣

I left the office of the artistic director of the ballet company where I was dancing and thought to myself “f this shit.”⁣

At that point, my body had been through so many extremes and I was unwilling to put it through anymore. I was DONE. ⁣

I had no idea what I would do when I left the ballet world, I just knew I couldn’t continue to put my body through this hell anymore.⁣

The next few years were not easy.⁣

I gained weight and panicked as I lost control. I realized I had never been as “in control” as I thought I was.⁣

I had no idea how to eat “normally.”⁣

I only had 2 approaches to food: either I was controlling what I ate in order to lose weight, or I was completely out of control.⁣

But I was committed to finding freedom and I KNEW there had to be another way. I could not accept that this enslaved relationship to food was my destiny.⁣

I was willing to stay committed to healing even when I looked in the mirror and absolutely hated my body.⁣

I was willing to stay committed to healing even when I had gained weight and felt like a complete failure.⁣

I was willing to stay committed to healing even when it meant my body was unacceptable to the standards of the ballet world.⁣

I was willing to stay committed to healing even when I felt sick and disgusted after eating 7 different desserts.⁣

Being enslaved by food is not your destiny. If you have even felt a GLIMMER of hope that there’s another possible way, CLING TO IT.⁣

Don’t let anyone convince you that there’s something wrong with you or that you should be ashamed of yourself.⁣

Trust that you are healing. Trust that this is NOT your destiny. Do not give up on yourself. There is a life beyond this that you were always meant to have and you are ON YOUR WAY TOWARDS IT 💪🏻✨🙏🏻💕
