  1. I am really struggling with this stuff right now. I’ the heaviest weight I’ve ever been. I’m 22, and I want to feel better. I hate how my clothes are so restricting now, I hate how sore my feet get from my 12 hour shifts, I hate how I keep saying fuck it and then I go on to binge stuff I dont even necessarily like? I’m noticing how my entire family is like this. I live at home (year in between undergrad and grad school) and my mom and dad are the same. It is so hard to try to change when they’re the ones that insist on making the dinners, do the shopping, and only make large portions and sometimes unhealthy options. I dont have money to see someone about it, but online stuff does help. Thank you for sharing though, feels better to not be alone in this. <3

  2. for me personally summer is harder! I don’t have a set routine as much as I do in the winter so I find myself working out less, eating more, and drinking more. it’s tough, hope the holidays are good to you this year!

  3. I can’t say enough how much I really appreciate this video. I’m in the same boat with being in a recovered state of mind but with the holidays coming up, also having the stressful thoughts of eating “what I’m not supposed to eat”. Thank you for making me feel not alone, Maryana❤️

  4. Thank you so much for making this video! I had found a healthy relationship with food and felt really good but then I started nursing school and the insane amount of stress triggered GERD and IBS and I’ve had to be so strict about my food so I don’t get flare ups (nothing to spicy, no dairy, no gluten, very low fat, nothing acidic) and it’s triggered my unhealthy feelings about food and my desire to binge. It’s been so hard to deal with because I haven’t been able to be perfect all the time and eating one little bad thing would set me into a panic thinking I was going to be sick and I would eat more to comfort myself which would end up making me sick. This video helps me not feel alone and know where the issue is coming from that’s triggering these feelings. I know what I need to work on. Thank you Maryana ❤️

  5. Hey Maryana, I’ve been on a weight loss journey for about a year and have lost a total of 30 pounds. I currently weight in 128/130 pounds and am at 23-24% bod fat. I mainly weight lift & do HITT 2-4 times a week. I want to lower my body fat but also build muscle especially in my lower body. Majority of my body fat is in my legs and I want to start toning up as well. I am unsure of what to do now, I have hit a plateau and am not sure if I should continue to cut or start bulking. I am unsure if my body fat is too high to start bulking. Any advice ???

  6. Thank you for the honest frank video♥️The most poignant message was that you had to ‘pretend to act normal’ while with family and eating.I so can relate if we were/are ‘acting’ I wonder how many people are ‘acting’ too!? I also look at people who can just go to the gym for ‘fun’.I would pass on winning the lottery if it meant I no longer had to act but actually had a ‘normal’ relationship with food and exercise.

  7. Hello. Your videos are amazing❤, but i cried after i watched this one
    There is almost nobody near me who understands. (I am from Russia. so sorry for the mistakes.) this year is the last year of school. And i am having difficult exams which i should prepare to. I don't have enough time and energy to go to the gym. I try to exercise home but it doesn't really works. I feel like i look so bad. And my eating discorder is worse and worse. I cry about my insecurity and body almost every day. I should study really hard this year, because my life will change a lot but i can not, because of an eating discorder. I don't know how i can let everything go and be happy and confident. I decided to write it down, just because i needed to write

  8. Thank you so much for talking about this and being so open and honest 💜 I've struggled with anorexia and binge eating and I remember many times when I avoided eating at social functions because I was restricting or because I felt shame and guilt from binging every day. I've created a much healthier and balanced relationship with food the past couple of years but lately, I've been dealing with a similar situation to you that I've been struggling a bit when I get stressed or emotional and don't always eat regularly or balanced. I'm fearful of falling back into restricting or binging but I'm taking it one step at a time. Appreciate you girl, sending love your way this holiday season ❤

  9. i struggle with this and emotional eating and I never got help for it. I'm leaving for vacation on sunday and i'm not at the weight or shape that I wanted to be in and I'm really stuggling with it now like I don't want to wear a bathing suit and I'm feeling insecure about my body . I wish I didn't feel this way but I don't know how to deal with it

  10. This video was so helpful to me because I am currently identifying my own emotional issues with food, and I watched your channel for a while now, of course you always inspired me, but now seeing that u went through the same things I am going through helps me to feel hopeful that I can get through this..

  11. Thank you so much for sharing these issues and matters. It’s been so helpful to so many people, including myself. I’ve recently also ran into digestive issues within the past year and a half now, and every doctor/ specialist I’ve seen just shrugged it off and thought I’d purge myself (when I do not, nor have I ever) to not hold down my food. I went to a naturopath and she’s actually diagnosed that, like you, I can’t have/ tolerate dairy, gluten, processed foods and red meats. It’s been such a struggle and every holiday I’ve encountered has been really difficult, especially with family gatherings because they all eat and make foods with dairy, gluten and processed foods.
    Thank you for making this very difficult video, I can see how hard and emotionally gripping it is for you, and I’m so proud of all that you are, have become and overcome. ♥️

  12. Wow I appreciate videos like this like you cannot believe. Binge eating is the scariest experience and so difficult to speak about. Sending so much love and happiness your way ❤️

  13. If anyone here is struggling with binge eating, please check out @JessiJeannn on instagram and her Food Freedom Masterclass. I've struggled with binge eating for 10 years and this program is the only thing that has helped me overcome it. Jessi has a great podcast and incredible program, check her out!

  14. I love the way you talk about this stuff Maryana, you provide such an empathetic perspective and really good advice too ❤️It's so uplifting to hear you talk about food guilt and self-image especially around the holiday season because so many of us can relate! I personally find travelling + holidays quite challenging so I will be replaying this video when I need a reminder :')

  15. I have been dealing with body image issues as long as I can remember. It feels as if with every year that passes I find a new error in my body. I have tried losing weight the wrong way, starving, excessive exercise, etc. Listening to you acknowledging this helps me so much. Thanks.

  16. This is a super important message! I’ve been struggling with dieting and binging for the past few months but I’m just so thankful for self awareness and my ability to say “enough is enough”. I have fitness and physique goals I want to reach, so I’ve invested in a nutrition coach to help get me there.

  17. Thank you for this video! This definitely came from your heart! Thank you for sharing! This is such a beautiful inspired video. I love all your videos and how honest you are! Love you! ❤
