PSA: We’ve all been there, looked in the mirror and found something wrong with ourself. After looking at a grade 12 prom photo in my first year of university, I decided to change it. I lost nearly 45 lbs and was a staggering size 0 and weighed in at 103 lbs. In the beginning, I lost the weight properly through diet and exercise, but I became obsessed with maintaining the numbers and through bulimia and extreme calorie counting & restriction I kept them low.  I’ll spare you the gorey details, but it had gotten bad. This photo isn’t even me at my smallest. With the help of @shajeesellathurai who took me to a clinic downtown, and my family I stopped making myself sick. Thankyou to them (@shajeesellathurai & @koichopper13) for probably being the difference between life and death. But than I gained weight, I self loathed and at some point became jealous. I’m happy to say in recent years, I no longer feel jealousy (girl/people power!) and deeply love myself on the inside. But I didn’t love how I looked on the outside. This has been my dirty little secret that only those closest to me know, but today, I stand at my heaviest weight I’ve ever been, and I can happily say that I no longer compare myself to “thin” Katie. I’ve officially restarted my fitness journey by getting a gym membership, and some cute new gym clothes. So I guess what I’m saying is, please look in the mirror and tell yourself something you love about yourself today, and know that you’re beautiful. We’re all on this journey. Thankyou if you took the time to read this entire post, it really does mean a lot to me. #fitness #journey #fitnessjourney #yourebeautiful
Couldn’t ask for any better way to spend my long weekend than looking at these gems. There’s too many good photos to choose from, and I had to crop some of the photos😡, but nevertheless I’m so happy for Lindsay and Lukasz
