My names Abigail and I'm 18 years of age. When I was in year 8 I auditioned for a vocational school for dance. I got in and joined the school in year 9. At this time I was 12 going on 13. I fell in love with dance, even more so than before but in particular ballet. It was totally different than my local dance school. We did free work as oppose to set exercises for exams (e.g. RAD). There were no rules or regulations- so to speak. It wasn't the same set of exercises every lesson. Every lesson was different. I got good and it was showing. I was never a ballerina before. Infact it was the style of dance that I disliked doing the most. However whilst caught up in this new world of dance I got lost in a terrane of competitive girls and the 'expected' eating regime. Only 1 cup of pasta a week she said, no carbs she said, wrap cling film around your legs she said- the list goes on. But whilst I was going through these conflicting emotions, petty fall outs with girls were so bad that I was made to feel alone and so consequentially I encountered the worst demon of all.. Anorexia. For 4 years I suffered with this illness. I was sent home part way through year 9 but because my mindset was all over the place I refused to go back and rejoined my old school. That wasn't much better either. I confided my troubles in a friend and the whole school found out. I then had no friends. Nobody saw me as a person anymore they saw me as THE anorexic girl and again I exoerienced the same feelings as I did at the vocational school. But then after 3 long years at the age of 17, in the summer of 2014, something happened. I actually began to see the light. I know that sounds ridiculous and totally OTT but I did. I began to invest in my health. I was doing kayla itsines free week of workouts every week and I became a vegan (on the very very odd occasion I ate seafood if we every went out for tea). For a long period of time before that (at least a good year) I was a pescetarien but never did I eat dairy or salt or oil (I was basically a plant based began with the occasional acception of fish). Anyway back to the story. Then we went on holiday to cyprus for 2 weeks continuing my work outs and plant based/pescetarian lifestyle but then I started to head for the worse. I encountered probably the worst (mentally) eating disorder of all in August- September and am still experiencing it. Binge eating disorder. I was at my lowest point. I was suicidal... I was contemplating on taking drugs/alcohol to kind of counteract the binge eating and poison my body instead. Luckily for me I never did this but I can honestly say I would rather have anorexia than this. It's torture. In my profile picture I was Between 35-36 kg more or less 35kg and at the height of 156cm (5'2). This was taken on holiday in 2014. I am now at the weight 37-38kg. I put on 3kg from binge eating. Now I know this is underweight for my height both 35 and 38kg but I can assure you that at the weight of 35-36kg I was by no means restricting! I ate loads. I ate so many nuts and seeds and pea protein (to try and gain muscle mass- I know now that supplements are completely absurd) I can't even count but still I remained at 35-36kg. I've been looking at the 80/10/10 diet for quite some time now. I've followed so many raw eaters for atleast 2 years in particular fullyrawkristina. It was so inspiring seeing these people thrive and for from just eating fruits and vegetables so I thought hey if they can why can't i?! And until recently I found freelee. I could really relate my situation to her, her having gone through the disorder herself. So in a way I am somewhat and crazily grateful for encountering binge eating disorder as now I have the opportunity to really have a fresh start and begin a combined rawtill4 and fullyraw lifestyle... I just need the support.

My favourite books/movies/authors/pastimes are....
Movies- I'm all about disney (minus frozen- I can't say I enjoyed that too much). Any disney film on TV and I'm on it like a car bonnet. Saying that, I also love action and marvel films, all the superheroes (superman, Spider-Man, you get the gist) and films like star wars and star trek. Saying SAYING that I'm also a sucker for romance and chick flicks. BASO I LIKE PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING. I'm a bit of a mix mash really.
It's the same again with everything else. Music- I like rap, heavy metal, pop and especially classical music and ALL OF THE OLDIES.
I love musicals, documentaries and dramas. I used to love the kids channel but disney channel is just not he same without that's so raven and Hannah Montannah and suite life of sack and Cody.
