Scales to me now are as useless as a one-legged man in an ass kicking contest. What’s the point of them? It is not like anyone is going to notice if you have lost or gained a few hundred grams, but the effect it can have on your mood is immeasurable.
Every day for the past two years I have struggled with Orthorexia, an unhealthy obsession with eating healthy food. Here I want to share with you what it has been like and three things I wish everybody knew about it.
You see I had won the trifecta! Not only did I use to be a perfectionist, with a laser beam focus on becoming the healthiest person I could be, I was also a control freak, with a sprinkle of OCD to top it all off. Now please don’t all rush to be my friend!
Through my own journey I have realised that in judging or gossiping about others, I was running away from my own unhappiness and feelings of hurt. Happy people do not feel the need to put other’s down.
