- So that no one noticed anything about her eating disorder, Sophia Thiel blurred the “traces” of her binge eating for a long time.
- She is not proud of the way she writes in her book.
Sophia Thiel no longer wants to keep her eating disorder a secret. In her new book “Come Back Stronger”, which was published on May 7th, the fitness YouTuberin writes openly and honestly about her experiences with binge eating and how she has tried to hide them for years.
Sophia Thiel: binge eating in the parking lot
She writes that, among other things, she drove to various supermarkets to avoid being seen with a shopping cart full of junk food. “I dosed the purchases and devoured all the stuff in the parking lot or while driving. In between I always disposed of the packaging so that nobody caught me (…) or would later find anything in the car,” Thiel continues.
She has perfected the “covering of tracks” more and more. She is by no means proud of it. In those moments she completely lost control. “You steer from food to food like on the autopilot until you just can’t anymore.”
Then Thiel was mostly ashamed. “With every binge of eating I really noticed how I was getting broken piece by piece,” she recalls.
Influencer: “It was the most difficult time of my life”
On the occasion of her book publication, the 26-year-old also found a few emotional words on Instagram. She stated that she felt “lost” during her social media break, “searching for answers to my then undiagnosed eating disorder”.
Thiel was not in tune with her body, he felt like an “opponent”, like “my great saboteur of my ‘happiness'”. It was a long time before she found herself and her “personal center” again.
Today she is grateful for what her body has achieved over the years. From their point of view, there can be no talk of a “happy ending”. “Well, let’s put it this way: we’ve become good friends now, even if we sometimes quarrel.”
