in five days I will be another year older!!!!! Looking back on 22 it was an amazing year, and I grew up and into myself a LOT. but I also definitely struggled the most with weight that I ever have in my life this year. I went from upper 120′s to 109 and before this year I weighed more than the upper 120. I was MISERABLE. I cried every single day about my weight, I never went out because I didn’t feel confident in myself. I let my feeling of being too heavy keep me from so much. So then this year I finally felt thin and confident and started having so much fun which is great! But if I said I was healthy about my weight loss I’d be lying. very very much so. I’m still so happy to have lost weight, and I do prefer to be this weight, but cutting food out of my life was not and is not ever worth it. eat! eat until your heart is happy, because even if you weigh what you’ve always wanted to feeling physically ill every day will never be worth it. You will affect yourself and the ones you love the most and you will not be happy like you thought you could be. please trust me, food is your friend.
So, i have a lot of stretch marks all over my body from being overweight a few years ago and going through the peak of my eating disorder (finally at a weight im comfortable at holla). Though most are quite faded i still feel so self conscious to wear clothes that expose them because they make me feel like im damaged and inferior to other girls. Do you have any wisdom you can share with me?
