Pictures don’t even do justice but #transformationtuesday from back in college when I couldn’t get skinnier if I tried. Back to when I weighed myself before every meal, back to when I would carry my scale around in my back pack. Back to binging and purging and ruining every relationship I’ve ever had. Self hate and depression took over my life and I suffered alone. I look back and all I see is pain. I don’t even know the girl in these pictures anymore. I tore myself apart and literally have rebuilt myself from the bottom. Every day is a god damn struggle that I choose to survive but I am so thankful and so blessed to have come out of that dark place I was dying in for so long. I believe recovery exists and I hope and pray that everyone who suffers in this world finds it in themselves to reach out and get help. Choose recovery. For yourself. I will never go back. Ever. #recovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorders #fitness #bodybuilding #girlswholift #girlswhoworkout #girlswithmuscle #motivation #inspiration #flexiblediet #flexibledieting #iifym #workout #health #healthy

#transformationtuesday. Since I was about 19 years old, I’ve struggled with every eating disorder under the sun. In college I couldn’t get any skinnier if I tried. I went from weighing around 127 lbs down to 112. My severe restriction turned into binges to binging and purging. Id lay in bed at night praying to god that I wouldn’t wake up because I couldn’t bare to live in pain any longer. My purging led me straight to the hospital. It left me physically and emotional ill and unstable. I refused to leave my house. I hated myself and I hated the world. I didn’t believe in a god damn thing. Here I stand today, 1 year and 9 months purge free -15 pounds heavier, learning how to love myself and my body and learning how to love the life I was given. I was so brain washed by my own disorder that I never thought recovery was possible. There are days I want to quit. Days I want to give up. Days I cry because of the ways I struggle, but not a day goes by where I dont choose recovery. Every day I put myself first and every day I fight for recovery. My hope is that one day I can be a positive role model to anyone who suffers. I want to be the reason people don’t give up. I want to show people that recovery IS possible. #fitness #recovery #edrecovery #edsoldiers #bodybuilding #girlswholift #girlswhoworkout #girlswithmuscle #iifym #flexiblediet #flexibledieting #motivation #progress #eatingdisorder #fitfam #health #healthy

So this morning I spilt coffee all over my car, fell in the parking lot, blew a fuse, and ate a piece of chocolate cake all before 5am.😣 #typicalaubrey. But this has been on repeat in my head for the past two weeks. BAD DAYS BUILD BETTER DAYS. YOU CANNOT HAVE GOOD DAYS WITHOUT BAD DAYS. BAD DAYS MAKE YOU STRONGER💪. So if you’re like me and you’re having a #wackyWednesday, just remember these 5 words. And repeat it in your head. Idc if people think you’re cray. My bad day lasted 2 years long but today I’m stronger than I’ve ever been ✊ #baddaysbuildbetterdays #fitness #motivation #inspiration #progress #girlswholift #girlswhoworkout #girlswithmuscle #positivity #strength #edsoldier #edrecovery #iifym #flexiblediet #flexibledieting #health #healthy
