Yet another photo from the high school days…
There is so much wrong about this picture, I’m not sure where to start:
Wet, unbrushed burgundy hair in a ponytail.
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!
