“Bekah Rigby: Working out life”

Roxana Pop

Rebekah Rigby, 20, lost 35 pounds in one summer, and now she struggles to maintain her weight by working out hard and eating healthy. “Everybody loves junk food. Junk food just tastes better. I would much rather eat a bowl of ice-cream than a bowl of spinach,”–said Bekah. MizzouREC is almost her second home. She goes to the Jungle Gym five times per week and burns around 600 calories per day. Bekah has Body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) which means she is excessively concerned with her body image. “When I look in the mirror, I don’t really see myself,” Bekah said. “I will never be happy with the way I look, but at least I know that I’m healthy.”
