Erin(story) - Kicking the Scale: A Journey to Recovery
“I wanted to do what I needed to do so that I could be myself again. I wanted people to laugh with me. I wanted to play soccer and enjoy it and not hate being out there and struggle to get through it. So my motivation for getting back to a healthy state was to be who I was before, but even better. With those goals in mind, that really helped inspire me to take chances and to take risks.” – Erin
