Years ago, when the photo on the left was taken, I was SO HAPPY to see that the bones in my chest were showing through. I was probably eating around 1000 calories a day (although I wasn’t counting). I wouldn’t eat until 3pm, and then I would have a tiny tin of tuna and six rice crackers. I would only have one REAL meal a day, and that was dinner. It saddens me now to think that I wanted to look that thin and bony. I had no love for myself or my body, and my self worth was dictated by how small I was. And, of course, I was never small enough. I wouldn’t say I had a proper eating disorder, but I had very unhealthy attitudes towards food. Fast forward to the photo on the right, and I am SO HAPPY that the bones in my chest AREN’T showing through. I’m carrying more muscle (and more fat), but I am happy and healthy and love my body for what it is. I still work every day to be the best version of myself, but it comes from a place of love. Strong is the new skinny! I’m proud of my physical progress, but even more proud of the mental changes. Here’s to self love!
One of my boys; Monsieur Lumière. Chill-mode before show-off time. Lights out === Cat Party. They shake the house now, running about, raising hell. Our twin rag dolls, Cogsworth and Lumière, started their own page over at @house_of_mass_hysteria along with their animal siblings Mr. Guy Dog, Ms. Pibba, Bae-Bae, and Iris.
So many times I see people talking about wanting to lose weight and I'm always left asking why? Most people don't have a reason.
Unless your an athlete or have athletic I don't see the point
Your purpose in life isn't to lose weight or be cut. The point of life is to live. Enjoy what you doing, don't over think food, don't let what society deem as a perfect body define your life.
I see so many people thinking they need to look a certain way and that isn't the case.
Weight loss culture isn't everything and many people don't love themselves for the awesome person they already are.
You are fine the way you are.
Love yourself. @shethority
Soaking it all in .
Boston always needs to be touching me, even if it's hot and I don't want a furry body rubbing up next to me .
I've been thinking a lot lately about experiences. Most things in my life and very rigid and planned and I wanting to focus more on experiencing new things, travel and connection with others
