The Journey of Bettering Myself
I've always been one to see something that I want, whether it be tangible or not, and then to do whatever it takes to attain that thing, much like the Machiavellian way. Many years ago, when I was a sixth grader, I set out on a journey to better myself that would eventually change the way I look at things to this day. The beginning of my journey was definitely a shaky start but was very important to the entirety of my experiences that have led me to where I am today. I am currently a nineteen year old student at Ball State University studying Exercise Science, and the path I am currently on has led me to realize that I will never be satisfied.

After someone had noticed I had lost weight, something I had not noticed myself, I remember loosing weight was always on my mind and I was always focused on making that number drop. My lunches from home were being thrown away except for a hard-boiled egg, I was constantly weighing myself and doing everything by myself. Before I knew it I was anorexic and anti-social. I went from 160 pounds to 96 at the beginning of my seventh grade. I had spent most of my summer inside or at my one of my two therapists. I didn't start becoming healthier until around Christmas break of my seventh grade.
