I'm Mary. I'm 22 years old, I love Doctor Who, I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, and I'm dedicating my life to becoming as healthy as I can.
This is not a weight loss blog, but I do promote positive thinking, healthy eating and healthy exercise habits; you won't find anything pro-ED here (though I'm a big supporter of recovery blogs!).
My blog is about health of all kinds, not about weight loss or shaming any type of body or lifestyle. This picture is useful if you want a brief description of what my blog aims to be. I post about healthy ways to lose weight, so as to dispel any unhealthy or pro-ED methods of losing weight.
Now let's get out there and get happy, healthy, and fit!

Societal pressures to be thin are rising, however, research for eating disorders continues to be under-funded and insurance coverage for treatment is inadequate.”
