Funny how I didn’t like this photo when I first saw it. Why? Because I couldn’t see my abdominal definition, because I didn’t like my legs and so on. I am a perfectionist about myself and that fuelled my anorexia in the past. It’s amazing how warped your mind can become for whatever reason, but mostly you don’t think you’re worthy enough. So you don’t eat. It’s that simple in your mind. I don’t see what my loved ones see in this photo. But that’s okay.
I’m building a better relationship with food and more importantly, I’m building a better relationship with myself. Having surgery I knew my exercise regimen (normally very intense) would be limited. I was so scared.
But I’ll be back to normal in time and my body is amazing, it’s just had surgery! We need to see more real people in real photos - whether they have curves, muscles, are mean, have cellulite, have scars, have stretch marks - we just need more reality.
Food is such an intimate issue for most people, and we need to stop seeing it as a stressor and instead a necessity. Because we need food to survive, and it should be enjoyable.
