🍩 Why do I love them so much?
On Nov 23, 2016, I took part in a fitness shoot at smashconditioning
For a year I had been struggling with a binge eating disorder.
Monday to Friday was chicken and broccoli.
Friday night to Sunday night was pizza, pasta, burgers, ice cream, chocolate, cookies and candy. Sometimes 15,000 calories worth in one binge episode because after the weekend it was back to "clean eating".
At the end of this shoot, the photographer asked me to bite into the donut for some fun photos. This was a Wednesday night and donuts weren't allowed in my mind.
I hesitated but wanting to get the perfect shot I bit into the donut. I ended up eating the whole thing and I cannot even tell you how sweet it tasted.
From this day on, I started my journey to overcoming my eating disorder.
So why do I love donuts so much? Well, apart from them being straight up delicious, the meaning behind the donut goes much deeper.
They saved me.
For a brief moment, I felt that recovery was possible.
One day at a time, one donut at a time, I just kept going.
Don’t give up. Recovery is possible. bethefire 📸 suemoodiephotography yycinstyle clothing_bar_yyc
