Healthy Mind, Healthy Body

Michaela. 17. 5'(3/4)". 102lb.

I'm a sophomore at University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign, studying biology. This is my journey from the depths of an eating disorder, to the wonders of loving your body and loving yourself and getting healthy along the way. You can be happy with the number on the scale but hate how your body looks all at the same time.
