Throwback Thursday 8/28 #tbt

Yet another photo from the high school days…


There is so much wrong about this picture, I’m not sure where to start:

Burgundy hair.
Wet, unbrushed burgundy hair in a ponytail.
Denim shirt.
At least 60 lbs overweight.

This picture was taken dead-smack in the middle of IB exams, so I wasn’t sleeping, was highly stressed out, and was fueling myself on Mountain Dew and bags of candy from the school fundraiser sales.

I’ve exchanged my stressors with age, of course, but food is definitely still my go-to coping mechanism. I constantly have to watch myself to avoid falling back into old habits. What about you? What makes you eat? Joy? Sadness? Stress, like me?

Whatever it is, just remember: you are stronger than it. I know you are.

Bon appetit, my friends!

    I think that the photo is great! 🙂 What makes me eat? It’s hard to say, although when I’m down, I don’t eat. Long sessions in the studio with junk food are a main culprit for me.

  2. Awww you look so sweet here – but good effort on losing all of the weight!

    I definitely use food as my go-to too. I should just stop buying it. Problem: I can’t! x
