About

Hi! My name is Beth and I am currently 19 years old, living in the small town of Bahama (just north of Durham, NC). I am currently in recovery for anorexia. If you have been keeping up with my blog then you are well aware of the struggles that I am going through as part of recovery. I am taking time off of school (went to Appalachian State for my first two years) to focus on my health and overall happiness/well-being. I adore all animals, specifically my horse, Vinnie, and my cats, Nicole and Barefoot, and I love to travel and spend time with my family. I have one older sister, Jennifer, who currently lives in Chattanooga, TN working for the Lookouts, the Double A team for the LA Dodgers. I work at the Durham Bulls, which is the Triple A affiliates with the Tampa Bay Rays, with some truly great people! Being physically active has always been a big part of my life. I played volleyball throughout high school and started running more in college. Any thing that involved getting outside and moving around or anything with a scoring system and I was one happy girl. I am a loyal fan for every team out of Pittsburgh: the Steelers, the Pirates, and the Penguins. Most of my family is from the Pittsburgh area and it is one of my favorite cities to visit.

Sadly I am unable to do physical activity as part of my recovery. Writing and sharing my life on this blog has been my outlet through this difficult time. I have made some goals for myself to help motivate me to gain weight and be healthy. My current goal is to become healthy and strong enough to start training for a half marathon! Dream big, right?

  1. Baba sends her love and now that I have finally found out how to answer I will try to catch up with you every day. Love, xoxoxoxoxoxo

  2. In following through with your meal plan, did you find that it benefited you to share it on your blog? Did you also share it with your family and find that their support helped/helps you meet your requirements?

    • I definitely believe that it benefited me to share. At first I was unsure because I felt ashamed about the amount of food I was eating, but once I got past that I was actually excited to share my meal plan and the food I was making and eating! It was a great way for me to show those who were concerned that I was pushing myself and working towards health. I found that if I documented what I ate and my thoughts/feelings associated with it I could see for myself if I was truly doing everything I could do. If I struggled then I had the support from family and friends to help me through the challenge. Let me know if you have any more questions! I’m happy to share anything you would like to know about my meal plan and how it worked for me 🙂

      • Thanks so much for your response and for letting me talk to you about it. You are such an inspiration to me and to see you just knocking it out, really makes me want to work even harder and try some of the things that you’ve been doing. I know I will benefit greatly by opening up more to my family and friends, I just feel like I’d be talking about the same stuff all over again and I figure everyone is sick of hearing about it or I just don’t want to worry them at all. (namely my mom, she’s the worrying type) But that being said, I know it’s helped me to be more vocal in the past. If I’m struggling again, it will be the best for me to reach out now before things slip any further. I just need to make that commitment to do so, which is what I struggle with the most.
