MAKE CHOICES LIV­ABLE

“I used to have to be ei­ther re­ally strict, or I would con­sider my­self bad and blow the whole day. But to say you’re never go­ing to have foods like pizza again isn’t prac­ti­cal. You have to find a happy medium.”

FIND SELF-LOVE

“You have to start be­ing kind to your­self and get off the mind­set that you’re sin­ning if you eat cer­tain foods. In­stead of let­ting slipups de­feat me, I’ve learned to move on and find ways to cope.”

MAKE GOOD

CHOICES EAS­IER

“I don’t keep trig­ger foods like cake and cook­ies in the house. I sat­isfy crav­ings or treat lows with a few pret­zels, fruit, or even sin­gle-serv­ing snacks at night in­stead.”

BUILD A TEAM

“My sis­ter and brother, my phys­i­cal ther­a­pist, my oc­cu­pa­tional ther­a­pist— they sup­ported me and be­lieved in me. You have to reach out for help be­cause it’s out there. Keep fight­ing un­til you find it.”
