Me vs Me
I’m at a point where for once I’m fairly happy with my body. I am not 100% happy, but I don’t hate it the way I have most of my life and on and off in recent years.
I am not my leanest right now and for the last year and a half or so I’ve been beating myself up about that off and on and having a major battle with my ED about my body image.
I am 100% in a place where I can honestly say that I continue to eat the way I eat and exercise the way I do because I like how I FEEL first and foremost. How I look is secondary.
That said, I still only like to pick pictures to post based on what I feel is most flattering. I was only gonna post the first picture on my stories and the second picture I took for myself because I like to take “progress” pictures.
I decided to post both and talk about this because I know I’m not the only person who battles this. If I can impress anything upon you it’s that you should embrace the journey, embrace where you’re currently at and love yourself through every stage. That’s something I wish I knew. Hating our bodies believe it or not is not a good motivator. Just focus on being the best mental and physical version of yourself and focus on how you feel because if you’re doing things that make you feel genuinely good and they genuinely improve your health, your body will have no choice but to change.
