WTW #25 | How I Overcame an Eating Disorder

This week I’m sharing a really personal story about my unhealthy relationship with food and how I struggled to find balance when it comes to losing weight.

  1. I'm so happy I came across this video and your channel. I've gone through pretty much exactly what you talked about here, and still struggle with it sometimes. Since it doesn't really fit into standard ed descriptions, I had no idea until now that there were other people who had experienced this too. Thank you for sharing- I know how hard it can be to acknowledge and talk about this, and it's just great to know that I'm not the only one who has gone through it.

  2. It's amazing to me how much I can COMPLETELY relate to this video. In January I found out I have PCOS, I wanted to become healthier and try to finally get my weight in check. I was so completely strict on myself by following a low carb high fat lifestyle. After a week or so all I could do was think about the foods I was missing out on. I grew up in a household where fast food and processed things were basically an everyday staple because of the way my mom worked, so my brain is still wired to crave junk after all these years. Needless to say I lost 10lbs but have already gained it all back. When I allow myself a cheat meal I always fall so far off the bandwagon and just binge from being SO strict. It's hard for me to find a balance, because I want the weight to come off fast even though it's unrealistic. Sometimes I feel like there's no help and I'll be this way forever. It's scary how powerful food can be. Apologizes for my long comment! You're just always so relatable! Thank you for being so real 🙂

  3. You're so awesome for talking about this issue. And I feel like we have so much in common. I had the same experience with childhood, like when we went out it was always such a happy occasion I always connected that with that sense of happiness, and that all was well.

  4. Sam, I admire you so much! You're so brave for telling us so much about you! You look stunning and I absolutely love your hair! I wish I could pull off blonde, but it washes me out so bad! I seriously feel like I was watching a video about my life! In middle school and beginning of high school I was so think and muscular because I played sports. But I never ever had to worry about what I ate.. Then I noticed my jr year I had gained about 15 pounds or so and so I barely ate anything and by my senior year I had lost that and MORE! I felt amazing cus I looked great! But now being out of high school for almost 4 years I've gained quite a bit and I'm struggling to lose weight. I have no motivation to work out, but every time I eat something not as healthy I feel so bad about myself! I just relate to you so much! I'm so happy for everything you have accomplished! Thank you for sharing!!

  5. The more I watch your videos the more I notice that we have so much in common! Same here, before I started to watch what I eat there was no healthy food in my home 🙁 thanks for my lovely neighbour who makes me go jogging everyday lol because with my diet I go up and down. Sometimes I eat healthy and then again when I'm home I eat huge portions of food especially chocolates etc I know it's wrong.. just so hard to stop
