I bet you’re wondering, why “Peeling the Onion?” This blog is primarily about my journey with food (hence the food reference), and the title is supposed to be symbolic of my journey getting at the core of who I am, the things I struggle with, and the things that I draw strength from.

Now, a little bit about myself. I am a 21-year old college student who has struggled with emotional binge eating for about 5 years now, and I’m ready to release the power that it has had over me! I have struggled with my weight & body image ever since elementary school, although thankfully it hasn’t always been at the forefront of my mind. I’ve recently discovered that much of this behavior has been do to physiological issues within my body that have impacted my psychology, which explains my struggles in this area! Now I’m working to open up & have courage in sharing my story. I don’t know if this will impact anyone else, but I know for myself that this is a step in my healing process. I hope this can do the same for you.
