The Evolution of Me
In three years I beat an eating disorder. graduated high school, learned how to dead lift, finished my freshman year of college and successfully played two seasons of college rugby. These pictures represent my journey, from skinny and sick, to healthy and fit, to strong and athletic.
My eating disorder left me at 90lbs and on my death bed, and with the help of God I found strength to get healthy again.
I was still unhealthy, but I was slowly getting better. I could not bring myself to eat anything other than eggwhites, broccoli, tilapia and oatmeal. Most people would say that I was eating well, and I was, but it still was not enough. My life was consumed by what I was eating.
Then I found strength, I started bulking and using IIFYM, slowly building muscle and strength, along with my ability to eat actual food. And you know what? I was kickass. I looked amazing, I felt amazing, I was finally achieving everything I wanted.
With college, I lost everything. I became more athletic in the sense that I could play rugby and run longer, but I lost most of the muscle mass I had gained, along with strength and replaced my weight with more fat than I had ever wanted.
I’m not happy where I am now, but I’m not giving up. I can finally eat the foods I have always been scared to eat, but my body is not where I want it to be. So you know what? I’m doing IIFYM. I’m lifting again. I’m running. I’m training for rugby and I’m going to climb my way back to the top if it fucking kills me.
If I can overcome and eating disorder, than I can do anything. Keeping positive and fighting through life like the Spartan I am.
If you played with Barbies,
Slip N’ Slide,
Listened to the Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, NSync and the Spice Girls
On Hit Clips, a Boom Box, or a Walkman,
Collected and traded Pokemon cards,
Wrote with Gel Pens,
Wore butterfly clips,
And Snap Bracelets,
And remember watching these guys:
I’ve been trying to fall asleep since 10:30 and it’s now 1 am and I’m still awake. I hate this
some girls do a messy ponytail and look like magical fucking fairy princesses
i do a messy ponytail and i look like a goddamn founding father
that’s fucking badass and if anyone tells you differently you should declare independence from their stupid ass
