Anonymous asked: I was talking to this guys 3 months I hate that it just ended and I miss talking to him I don't know if I should pick up my phone and talk to him or let it fly and just miss him through seeing him around school? It made me cry,

I understand how you feel. I don’t know the exact situation but it’s always hard to deal with rejection. If he doesn’t make an effort to talk to you, then don’t waste your time because it wasn’t meant to be. I saw this quote and thought it was relevant.

Breakfast this morning was raspberry chobani topped with banana slices, strawberries, and pumpkin flax granola. Hot coffee on the side as per usual.

Anonymous asked: So you have not binged in a while? Or when was your last binge?

I haven’t binged for almost a year. There have definitely been times where I ate more than planned, but nothing close to a binge. 

Anonymous asked: Is it still summer in Hawaii or are you going back to college soon? Love your blog btw :)

Awe thank you and my summer is almost done. My classes at HPU start in a week.

After brunch Chris drove me to LUSH so I could restock some of my products and get a few bath bombs and a new face mask. I also was craving coconut milk tea so we obviously had to get some.

For brunch the boyfriend and I got ramen from Goma Tei. We literally crave ramen at least 5x a week.

Anonymous asked: How many calories would you say you eat a day?

I have no idea. It’s so refreshing and freeing not to obsess about every calorie I consume. Some days I’m hungrier and eat more than others, and some days I’m too busy to eat my usual 3 meals and 2 snacks. Now that I know what my body needs in order to be satisfied and stay full, I no longer need to count calories. I’m not completely against counting calories because it’s important to be aware of how much you’re exactly consuming. However, it can cause an unhealthy obsession and possibly lead to an eating disorder/relapse. 

Anonymous asked: How much do you currently weigh? Have you gained or lost? If maintained, how?

My lowest weight was during my junior year of high school, I relapsed from stopping therapy and eventually weighed 108 pounds. I hated my body and was consumed with my eating disorder. My highest weight was 137 during the summer after my senior year of high school. I was stuck in a restricting/binging cycle at that time. I am now maintaining my weight at 115-117. It fluctuates depending on how active I am and how clean my diet is. I’m comfortable with my body and able to maintain with a balanced diet at my current weight. I suffered, I learned, I changed. 

We had a meeting with a Lyrica drug rep and they brought us CPK. I ordered my new favorite salad which is their full Waldorf chicken salad with no dressing.
