For 15 years, I struggled with food addiction. Bingeing late at night after restricting myself all day and feeling guilty about every calorie I ate. Most of my girlfriends were naturally skinny and I was the one who looked in the mirror and was disappointed, even though I was the one who danced for hours and exercised the most. I didn’t have any discipline when it came to food. The comparison and negative self-talk continued to spiral me into emotional eating and then dieting or restricting; a cruel and unhealthy cycle.
