Dis'tract'ed

I post a lot of things personal and anything I find beautiful.

Do you have any old pictures of you when you weren't healthy? It's interesting to see recovery photos. Inspiring too

A question by Anonymous

Possibly.. It’s still slightly emotionally stressful for me to look back at photos though

Kinda feel like posting a body positive thing.
So, here’s a bod shot. Check it out….
For the first time in so many years of hating my body and the way I looked, I finally can say “I love this body that is my own.”
I have finally let go of the number, of the curves and of the bigger sized pants. What the shit are those sizes anyway? 00, 0, 1, 2?
Even when I was just skin and bone, I still felt unattractive. I felt so ashamed of what was hidden under my clothes.
It wasn’t about how I looked… It was how I felt. My mind was not well. I hated so much about myself and I felt like no one could love me therefor I could not love myself. I was so mean to my body.

Here I am today, still wanting to get a little tone but hey, who doesn’t?
Today, I am happy in my own skin. And all I wanna be is healthy.
