Binging, bulimia, and restrictive diets – Fat Athletes transforming the Fat narrative

I’ve been fat since I was a child. I’ve joined weight loss groups, tried fad diets, and been stuck in a cycle of restriction and binging. The latter led to unhealthy relationships with food and bulimia. None of those things made me thin, and they certainly didn’t make me healthy. Most importantly, they made me unhappy. Only when I began to accept myself, as fat, did I begin to find happiness.


My pain led to the creation of something so beautiful – this website

Two weeks before lockdown, I found out my boyfriend was cheating on me. It was his way of rejecting me for coming out as non-binary. Being on furlough gave me too much time to sit in my pain. I later lost my job, and then lost my last lifeline through my group exercise income. I’ve been unemployed for five months, and lost £7,000 on my apartment. LGBTQ has been built from so much pain. Yet, I have created something so beautiful and healing, and I am so proud.
