I'm hoping Spark People can help motivate me to re-establish healthy eating patterns. I had bulimia from about 2008-2010, at which point I was able to stop purging for good. I'm grateful and proud that I've been recovered from that particular cycle for more than 5 years. However, since then I've struggled with binge eating disorder and gained a total of 40-50 pounds. In 2016 I'd like to get back into a healthy weight range, although I'm not just interested in losing weight but in feeling healthier and better about myself. I would like to have fewer stomachaches and migraines, less fatigue and depression, and feel less like my eating disorder is sucking up my energy and potential for happiness. 2012 Fitness Milestones: Biked 15 miles in an afternoon - 3/31/2012 Biked 31 miles in an afternoon - 4/7/2012 Biked 52 miles in a day - 5/19/2012 Biked 88 miles in a weekend - Memorial Day Rock climbing - Climbing 5.10a and 5.10b routes Climbed outdoors for the first time - 6/24/2012

Fitness Minutes: 28,581

My Goals:
I'd like to get back to the weight I was in summer 2012 (I weighed about 135 lbs). I've gained 30 pounds as a result of compulsive overeating, so losing weight is a matter of not falling back into self-destructive behavior.


My Program:
I eat plenty of fruits, veggies, beans, nuts, lentils, whole soy, and whole grains; drink lots of water; and eat healthy snacks in the afternoon and evening. I love walking, biking, hiking, swimming, and rock climbing.
