bad body image

anonymous asked:

do you ever have bad body image days?

not really. my “body image” isn’t really something on the forefront of my mind. it’s not something i spend time thinking about? like i wear clothes i feel cute and comfortable in but after i’ve decided on an outfit i like i don’t spend any more time during the day thinking “how do i look” or anything. and when i’m choosing my clothes for the day i think about things like the weather and my mood and my expression of my personality, not what will make my body look “good” by anyone else’s opinion.

our society obsesses about body image and it baffles me. thinking about what my body looks like feels like a waste of time? i’ve got work to do. i’ve got intelligent thoughts and conversations to have. i’ve got runs to go on. i’ve got bigger fish to fry.

How did you become so well known on Tumblr? (Not in a bad way btw because you are amazing) but I want to kind of get my name out and reach out/get to know this awesome fitness community.

i honestly have 0 idea why it blew up. it all started with this one picture of me that went everywhere for some reason.
i posted tons of my progress pics, personal posts, wrote things, and just made it mine.
and people liked it. im real. im raw. im 19 and im just like you guys. i started this blog when i was stuck in depression, anxiety, bad body image, and troubles with eating. and now im here. im living proof that it gets better.
i think when youre honest and you tell your story and youre truly there to help others and help yourself, people are drawn toward that positive energy.
im honored that i get the chance to help so many people every day. i never thought i would. and its honestly been so helpful for me and so inspiring for me every day when i see kind messages from you guys, they dont go unnoticed. even if i dont answer them, many times i keep your kind messages for when im having a bad day so i can see them.
just do you. tag people that inspire you. work hard. be you. be bold. be strong. be more.

the way that japanese and korean girls are expected to be pale skinny and pretty with slim faces and big eyes is honestly so disgusting and harmful and racist but like…i can’t help but feel really shitty that i’m none of those things and i fucking hate it lol

Really bad body image day because I had so much to drink and eat in the past 24 hours. Going to go to the gym for three hours. I’m going out again tonight, but I won’t be drinking.

Your Body vs. Society’s Body 

There is such pressure to obtain the “perfect body” according to society. The expectation to eat the “exceptional diet” (aka juices, juices, juices), the pressure to workout non-stop (the skyrocketing popularity of cycling), and all the rest. Although it’s always great to be healthy and active, theres a fine line between taking care of your body and forcing changes in a harmful way.

Tips for a bad body image day:

  • KEEP EATING - Just because you feel unhappy with your body, it gives you no right to relapse into harmful behaviours.
  • Wear comfy, baggy clothes.
  • Warm cups of tea and blankets to soothe yourself.
  • Snuggle up in bed with a movie.
  • Hugs are always helpful.
  • Petting animals if you can is also great.
  • Call a friend.
  • Cry if you need to but don’t be mean to yourself.
  • Be compassionate with yourself - think of yourself as a friend, daughter, someone who deserves to feel loved and be looked after.
  • Know that this will pass, so never give up.

So it has been a long time coming but I’m finally doing it Briana. Lipstickonmugs tagged me for the selfie thingy and I just got to it.
Been feeling extremely self conscious lately so I decided it was time.

I tag raptorsama, marvelous-freeman, drewster321, and anyone who wants to do it really!!

Please do not ignore this.

So this was a real post made about me, and I would like to just take a moment and tell you all why this pissed me off so much.

I wasn’t mad because I’m insecure about my body or anything. I love my body, and everything on it. It’s true, my boobs are small, but that doesn’t in ANY way mean that a girl with bigger boobs (or any body part for that matter) is better than me. Stop objectifying others based on their appearances.

Also, she had the audacity to post this picture on social media, but had no intention of saying this to my face. I mean, seriously? Grow up. I don’t have time for your juvenile bullshit.

Thirdly, I had NEVER met or talked to this girl before in my entire life! The one and only reason she disliked (and still dislikes) me is solely because she is the ex-girlfriend of my current boyfriend. Again, grow UP.

As a fourth point, after I took this picture and reposted it on my instagram to show everyone VERBATIM what she said, she got ME in trouble for bullying! As a plus, the administration agreed with her! They told me that by reposting HER picture that I was disrupting her educational atmosphere. Really school system? Stop it.

So I told them that her making fun of my genetics is not only immature and low, but that it is disrespectful to ALL people with body image issues and that if anyone is bullying here, it’s her.

With all that said, I really just want to shed light on these unfortunate, reoccuring issues. If you are currently facing a bully, NEVER be afraid to stand up for yourself, and if you’re struggling with low self-esteem, let me just assure you right now that you are so much better than you think you are. You are truly irreplaceable. Genetics are a funny thing, but they literally make you unique. So embrace it. ☺
