This is me.
messy hair, no make up, stretch marks, arm flab, not s*****g in, no filter, no crop.. 2 weeks ago, i wouldn't have dared post this.
i have struggled with my body and body dysmorphia - in relation to my eating disorder i developed around 12.
after a bad episode with my eating disorder, i decided that i needed to recover. i had to stop living this way, stop pretending to recover and actually do it, because i was no happier with my body at that point than i was at my highest weight (256 pounds). as the number went down, i became increasingly self conscious.
looking in the mirror, picking at every part of my body, spending hours crying alone about what i would wear - something to make me less fat.
i would cancel plans as to avoid being seen.
my weight issues consumed every aspect of my life.
and about a few weeks ago, i took action.
began eating, stopped purposely counting calories, began eating in public and through positive self talk and body positive plus sized models - i began to love myself and my body more and more.
for the past week, i have seen a rapid change in the way i feel about my body.
i am beautiful with or without make up.
and beautiful fat, thin or any other body type.
i truly am grateful for my new love for my body, myself and all new achievements to come. 💚💜😊😊 #bodypositivity #queerbody#recovery #eatingdisorder#bodydysmorphia#selflove#nofilter#plussize#nomakeup #messyhair#mentalhealth #genderqueermaritimer #gendervariant #happy#confident#progress
