Kellie’s Slimdown: Day 8

This concept of eating more to lose weight — I hear Larry saying it and I know he knows what he’s talking about, but that’s a hard thing to wrap my brain around! I’ve dieted since I was a preteen and all I’ve ever known to be true about dieting was to eat as little as possible. I walked around with a pocket-sized calorie counter book so I could keep track of every bite that passed my lips and tried to stop at 1,000. Yes, 1,000 calories was the magic number my mother and I came up with when we used to diet together. We didn’t know any better. It’s what everyone else was doing at the time.


I proceeded to diet the decades away, never happy with the way I looked, convinced that the next diet fad or weight loss center would be the answer I was looking for. I ended up a bulimic teenager with a very unhealthy relationship with food. At the height of my bulimia, I was the heaviest I’ve ever been. I stopped weighing myself after I hit 205, so I’ll never know exactly how high I actually got. All I know is I was in pain. But I thought if I could just get skinny, all my problems would be over. I ended up risking my health over it, not to mention the time, energy and money I wasted stressing and obsessing over it. Now I just want to live my life the healthiest way possible and set a good example for my daughter.
