Hey, I'm recovering from a 5 year eating disorder and I would really love to get to know some people in the fitblr community.... I could really use some support right now. Maybe we could motivate each other on the path to health and happiness? Also would you mind recommending a few blogs to follow or maybe publish this post so others can find me? Thanks so much. xx

Definitely! I’m so happy that you reached out to me; I can’t tell you how much that means. The fact that you have decided to get healthy is AMAZING, and I totally commend you for it! I know it’s hard, and it will be for a while—it’s hard for everyone, but it is so, so worth it.

Here are some amazing people and blogs to check out:

Girls of College Sports- real girl fitspo! Some of the top athletes in women’s sports are featured here. There are lots of sports represented, and they show the real, uncut side of women’s sports

MC Barao- MC is a fitness model and has a lot of experience in the health industry. She’s absolutely gorgeous and fun! She has a lot of knowledge about fitness and nutrition. You can’t go wrong with MC!

Becca’s Fit Life- Becca is amazing. Her journey is super impressive, and she is super sweet. She is open to all inquiries and gives great advice. Everyone loves Becca!

TheFbombs- Oh my gosh this woman. She is hilarious, motivational, and overall just delightfully REAL. She has an awesome physique, and has a lot of knowledge in health and fitness as well.

The Fame of Health and Fitness- Theresa is just a few days from competing in a big fitness modeling competition, the WBFF! I’ve been following her for a while now, and she is super awesome and knows her stuff front, back, sideways, and upside-down. She was even featured in Oxygen Magazine!

Before and After Weight Loss Pics- inspirational healthy weight loss pictures. A lot of the people who submit here are able to vouch for the value body composition plays in obtaining a certain physique. In other words, the scale lies sometimes! These are awesome and super motivational.

Run-Faster-Eat-Better- Jennie is ADORABLE. That sounds weird because she’s older than I am, but seriously. She’s witty and she has an attitude that doesn’t tolerate bullshit, all while being totally down-to-earth and sweet. Definitely check her out!

Wonder Girl Fitness- Marta is a straight-up BEAST. She is so awesome. She lifts HEAVY, and is just all-around awesome. Marta is a personal trainer and is going to school for nutrition, so she’s totally a good person to go to if you have any questions or concerns!

Weight-A-Second- I love Brynn. She’s funny and insightful, and her weight loss journey has been and is an amazing one. If anyone has dedication, it’s her! Brynn is also refreshingly real, and it’s nice to read her posts and go “oh my god I know EXACTLY what she’s talking about”!

And last but not least, I’m definitely here for you, girl. I’ve been through a lot of emotional stuff myself, so I know what it’s like to not be totally happy with one’s circumstances—trust me. I can and will help you (and everyone reading this) to the best of my abilities!

And everyone check her out! Let’s show her how awesome the fitblr community is! :D
