I was looking through my phone photo album, and I came across me at my lowest weight. I don’t remember much about Sophomore year that didn’t involve running or food. I was obsessed to say the least. I pushed friends and family away, but my best friend Brooke never turned away. Without a doubt, Brooke is one of the biggest reasons I have such a good relationship with food now, and why I have any friends at all. Brooke has encouraged me to stop counting calories and eat what I want occasionally. Brooke told me when I looked scary skinny and she tells me now when I’m being a bitch or obsessive about food. Truthfully, I couldn’t have done it without her.
