Hi ladies! Our next Body Beautiful story comes from Erin iu_erbear and here is her story. ... I never had body issues until I quit gymnastics. It was my freshman year of high school and I barely weighed 100lbs wet. I had no fat and I ate whatever I wanted. But after injuries forced me to abandon my goal of a college scholarship, my eating habits caused me to to gain 10lbs a year and then puberty finally happened. . I hated who I was, but it was difficult in college to know where to start to shed the weight. My thighs, which were so strong and allowed me to tumble so high, soon became a thorn in my side. Then my parent's divorced and my world spiraled out of control. A type A person who already had a low opinion of her appearance and now found herself in a situation with no control, I developed eating disorders. . Still, no matter what I did - how I little I ate or how much I threw up, my hips and thighs still disgusted me. . I knew what I was doing was wrong, and I did quit for a few years only to fall back into the trap again. . Running finally pulled me out of it. I wanted to run a half marathon, but to do so I would have to learn to live a healthy lifestyle. . I'm thankful to have a fiance who is a chef. He fixes me wonderfully delicious meals full of flavor and the nutrients I need. I've learned to love food again and not hate food or myself for enjoying. . This past November, I completed my second full marathon and his meals are a big credit to my doing so. Still, I looked at photos of myself and was still disappointed in the size of my hips and thighs. Why, oh why, do they have to look so un-toned?! I've ran a marathon! . Yes, I've ran a marathon. My hips and thighs have carried me 26.2 miles and got me across in the finish line in countless other races. So why I was obsessing over what I looked like? I've done what only a small fraction of the population will ever care to do. So what if I don't look like a model, I'd like to see a model keep up with me for 26.2 miles! ...

Evening run - and happy with a fastest mile ever - started running 3 years ago and my first ever mile took me 19 minutes to run - tonight one of my miles was 10 mins 28 seconds - massive achievement for me and an incentive to keep going! If I can do it then anyone can #runnersofinstagram #womensrunningcommunity #marathontraining #thisgirlcan #lakedistrict #192days #happy

New shoes! Already love them. So comfortable and light. Have used Saucony for the past few years, but decided to try something new and after having my gait analysis done again, went for New Balance. Thankyou hubby for the gift. #newshoes #newbalance #newbalancevongo2 #run #running #runner #runningmum #runnersofinstagram #instarunners #runchat #yourruns #womensrunninguk #womensrunningcommunity #thisgirlcan #girlswhorun
