After many years of hating myself and trying to shrink down to nothing, which led to years of eating disorders and struggling, I can finally consider myself recovered. And the crazy thing is, I actually LOVE the way I look now!! I’m still getting used to it, since I have gained a LOT of weight, and while my thighs may rub and have lumps and stretch marks, I actually can look in the mirror and not hate myself. I’m just so proud of who I’ve become, and all I’ve overcome, that I could never hate my body again. I mean, it’s my one and only body! Who cares if its not perfect by societal standards? It’s perfect for me.
