Let’s talk about food addiction. First, I want to start off by saying, I am not a doctor. I have no medical ability to diagnose you or myself with a disorder of any kind. So please, do not take this blog post as medical advice. For as long as I can remember, food has been… Continue reading My Struggle with Food Addiction
I have to work hard every day to find my value outside of my size and eating issues, and I also have to remind myself why I am here. I am called to love, and that includes loving myself, no matter how much the scale reads.
I’ll never forget the ridicule I faced for wearing sweatpants all year long, and I'll never forget the feelings of embarrassment, sadness, and shame that hit me every morning.
Happy New Year! As cliché as this sounds, I really can’t believe it is 2019. I swear I graduated high school about 2 years ago but I guess it’s been almost 9!

Drum roll please...
*awkwardly clears throat*
Ladies and gentlemen, without further ado,

My classmates and I would scoff at the thought… Continue reading Let’s talk about self-care
My birthday was just short of two weeks ago (belated presents will be accepted) and I am now a year older, but probably not wiser. I enjoy birthdays, probably too much, and while I would prefer to celebrate my birthday for the whole month of September, this year I settled for just one weekend instead.… Continue reading Tiny chair versus fat lady
“Don’t take this the wrong way but…you like to play the victim.” He wasn’t wrong. I do enjoy playing the victim, but did he have to call me out so blatantly?! My best friend (you know who you are) is not known for sugar coating things. He will tell me when my singing sounds great,… Continue reading This isn’t my fault
