Graduation Day: The Dream Dress!

Graduation Day: The Dream Dress!

As promised to those who have followed the blog for several weeks, here is the photo of me in my size four graduation dress.

I worked hard to get into this sucker.

  • Hitting the gym 5-6 days per week,
  • Sticking to my Paleo diet, and
  • Not letting my stress trigger a binge as it so frequently can when it compounds.

When I started the program (my second Bachelors degree) in March 2011, I was a wearing a size ten.

In many ways, I am a completely transformed person as a result of my college experience. An instructor in my junior year encouraged me to start this blog and create my documentary (in which I  admitted to my bulimia) and that transparency with the world has helped me to gain better control of my eating disorder. Knowing that all of you, now thousands of readers, are sharing in my world and are aware of my struggles, I’ve found a greater strength inside me that helps me generate will power when I need it the most.

I am wiser, I am more passionate and creative, and I am physically half the woman I used to be.

I’ll take it.

Bon appetit, my friends!

    As a guy who is really into petite ladies I must say, you fit the bill to a T. Maybe, if your single and if God wills it, I can hit on you if our paths cross. If you are not happy with how you look now you are CRAZY! You are now in the zone where a lot of guys are to embarrassed to come up to you. You deserve 100 percent to be there too!

    I have a feeling that your efforts in regards to dealing with your weight will pay off a hundred fold during your life time. Congrats and LIVE IT UP! Just whatever you do, don’t become one of those cuties who “know” how cute they are. If you get my just. Those women are the worst.

    • Thank you, AZ Guy! That is very sweet of you and I absolutely appreciate your kind words. 🙂 I still have a hard time seeing the real me in the mirror (I tend to see the BIG version of me from high school), so I don’t think I will turn cocky any time soon. Haha!
