Went out to bfast with my sister and I’m trying not to freak out about it. Laughs and sweet talks with the people you love are worth more than worrying about what you’re eating. I am okay. Recovery is okay.
The first picture was the picture I took the day I decided I wanted better for myself. I was still in the deep pits of being discouraged by my body and hating every inch of myself, but by taking this picture it was decided that one day I would have something to compare it to. I want to point out the way I’m trying to hide my face, the mess on my floor because I didn’t care enough about myself to even clean, the unbrushed dirty hair. I’m still not where I want to be, but everyday I’m reminded of how far I have come. I’m so much happier! Also, this is not me saying your happiness is dependent upon your weight because that’s false, but I do believe it coincides with your self image. I remember disliking myself so much I wouldn’t leave my house for WEEKS. I am a homebody, yes, but that was very drastic. I love going places now, and instead of worrying someone will notice me, I can just enjoy myself! Again, I know I still have a long way to go, but if you’re ever feeling discouraged just remember that it only takes one second and one choice to change everything. Don’t put it off because you think you can’t do it. I promise you can.
(Also I’m aware this particular post doesn’t match my blog but it feels important)
