one year later.

Although I posted my Anniversary post on Monday, my friend, Shanika, suggested I write about how I've changed over the year I've been blogging. So here goes:

It's an annual thing for my school to host a free Thanksgiving dinner. Here are photos of last year's, only a couple days after I'd just started blogging.

Even my face shows I was heavier then.
I hated it. I hated the energy my being overweight took from me and how much power food had over me.

So how have I changed?
                                             (Me & the famous, Sheryl, this past summer)

I'm so more grateful for my body. It's healthy, it's mine. And it's not to stay I don't overeat/binge anymore, it just happens less frequently. I still have issues with disordered eating. I overate just late night actually. My school hosted the free Thanksgiving dinner and I ate so much that it hurt. I was feeling so sorry for myself and I was mistaken that delicious, rich food would make me feel better about myself. But as always it ended up making me feel even more sorry for myself.

The difference of a year is that I'm much more aware of what's best for my body. I still make mistakes, but I've learnt to forgive myself, learn my lessons, and move on from there.

I thank God for all the friendships I've made here. I really appreciate your support and I love supporting you. Happy Thanksgiving!

I see a big difference in your energy :-)

What I hate, is that I willingly GAVE the Energy away!
Food didn't have to "take" it away, per se.
I threw myself away with the Energy!
Now finding both. Day by day.
Lots to be thankful for, eh?
*Like bloggers*
