About this Blog

This blog is my attempt to keep it real.

I am a 27 year-old newlywed on a mission to get healthy and fit. I figure the more time I spend writing, the less time I’ll spend shoving food in my mouth.

My battle with food started in grade 9, when I had a momentary lapse of failed anorexia after some bully four years my senior called me a “fat-faced bitch”. I get shivers just looking at those words again! So after my stint with starvation, I missed food too much and ate everything I could. But I felt guilty about, and thus began my pill poppin’ Bad Romance with laxatives… That’s right, if you can’t bear shoving your finger down your throat and making it come out one end, there’s always option number two, literally.

In my adult years, I have been as fat as 150 pounds (I’m 5’5) to as skinny as 110 pounds. I am a human yo yo, a sponge. I’ve tried all the diets – no carb Atkins, Cabbage Soup, Three Day Diet, and blah blah blah. I’ve done a lot of damage to my insides. Messed up my bowel with the laxatives, took a bunch of random diet pills including Meridia (Sibutrimine Hydrochloride) and tons of Ephedrine at one point. I’d be skinny for a while, then it would always creep back (cue the TLC song, “Creep”).

I have learned there is no quick fix. You gotta get our ass to the gym and watch what you put in your mouth. Diet is 80 per cent of it. You can work out like mad, still eat like a pig, and not lose a pound. With this blog, I hope to inspire someone out there struggling like me.

I am starting this blog so that I can take a good look into the mirror that really matters – the one that reflects what’s inside.
