People don't see me looking serene much. Or at peace. I'm always on the move, in the middle of something, sometimes stressed out, always thinking, always observing, always socialising, always laughing and joking around, always hyping, always struggling cause there’s so much that I don’t know about, always wondering... hardly at ease, or at peace. Except for when I’m travelling or when I’m reading. Or when I’m asleep on a Friday night knowing that I don’t have to get to work the next day. Or when I take naps in my Grab rides. Oh well, maybe I don’t look serene, maybe I just look tired. Who knows, who cares. All I know I just love how I look here. Probably my favourite portrait in a really long time. Thanks @amrlhlm for making me look like this for once. . . . #psblogger #bodypositivity #ootdcurvy #ootdcurvy #ootd #ootdplussize #nazirahashari #effyourbeautystandards #plussizehijabi #plussizefashion #bodyacceptance #honormycurves #modestfashion #fatshionista #fatshion #size20 #whatfatgirlsactuallywear #vsco #fesyenhijab #fatgirl #plussizeblogger #coveredinconfidence #plusisequal #unapologeticallyherself #hijabfashion #turbanation #reddress

Easter has always been a hard time of year for me...When I was a kid, I was like everyone else and relished Easter purely for the Easter Eggs! It didn’t help that my Uncle worked at Cadbury’s so Easter Eggs were aplenty. I learned to associate the Easter period with an abundance of chocolate and comfort. For a child being sexually abused, you clutch on to anything that brings you comfort, that soothes the anxiety, calms your soul, even for a few minutes, so Easter was always something I looked forward to. All these years later, I still look forward to Easter for exactly the same reason, comfort. Something that will ease the anxiety and soothe the soul. Some years, when things are going exceptionally well in my life overall, I’m feeling that comfort in other things, my health and wellness is strong, and I’m being soul driven in the work I’m doing, relationships are great, I can get through Easter without one Easter Egg or hot cross bun. You see for me, someone in recovery for bulimia, if I have one Easter Egg, I’m likely ending up having ten! If you don’t have challenges with food, having ten is fine, but having those 10 in one hour, and then searching for more, not so good... I made it to late yesterday without having one. Then I was in K-Mart and saw all of the Easter Eggs go on sale and I was a goner. I bought four large bunnies.... Whilst I haven’t opened one yet, as noted above, I know when I do open one, all four will be gone, since I bought them, I have been reflecting a lot on my recovery from bulimia, the tools I used to support me, etc. Pre my recovery, I would likely have bought over a dozen and had anxiety an hour later for not buying more, and then anxiety I’d bought any because I knew I was going to binge eat all of them. This is what it’s like for any addict. All or nothing. Bulimia, anorexia, overeating, binge eating, emotional eating, chronic dieting, are all the same. You live in a mental prison where all you think about is food. How much, how little, how often, control, anxiety. It’s never ending. The amount of time you spend thinking about food every day, you could spend building your dream life, It’s a heart breaking way to live..cont below

Aretha Franklin was 67 years old when she sang for President Barack Obama's 2009 inauguration. Growing up, I always loved her music, but I also loved her presence because she was one of the few celebrities who was plus size. The world thought she was glorious...and she was! #bodypositive #bodypositivity #agepositive #plussize #beautyatanyage #olderwomen #olderwomenrock #aging #ageism #aging #efftheiragingstandards #blackqueen #effyourbeautystandards #blackwomen #bodyacceptance #fatacceptance #bodyimage #feminism #intersectionality #selflove #selfacceptance #beautyatanyage #arethafranklin #queenofsoul

This travel mat has gone everywhere with me. This time, as it barely fits, in my tiny Paris hotel room. How I start the day in gratitude and body appreciation. #befriendingyourbody #selfcompassion #embodiment #practice #body awareness #bodyacceptance #bodyappreciation

FRAAAANDS. It is SO exciting to wear makeup again. And to wear it b/c makeup feels fun, optional, nonessential, special, and stimulating. I used to joke: "I forgot to put my face on." (You go ahead and analyze that as deep as you want.) I distinctly remember Nov. 2016 being my last daily make-up frenzy phase b/c I was exhausted and irritated after spending 25 min. applying makeup to then cry all day in eating disorder treatment center. ←Healthy tears because they were freeing tears because they were indicative of being humbled by truth, but not happy tears. They may have been more like fits, heaves, sobs, tantrums... but we won't get into that. SOOOOOOO To wear makeup now is like a secret adventure between me & my mirror. I get to apply as much or little or none as I like. It's not me, my mirror, and the pressure to outperform others or overcompensate at work for being unwell at home. I mean, come on! Isn't that fabulous! To do something because you can? Not have to? I guess it's like this: I knew it would take a long time to desire make-up again. Make-up was like a monster, biggest deepest fear to avoid. It was loaded layers. It felt like betraying myself. Yes! That's what I've been verbally processing to try to say. It felt like wearing make-up was a privilege taken away from me. I didn't get to hide anymore. Then it pendulum swung in the opposite direction. Make-up was betrayal. Now, it just is neutral. It's just powder. Like, there are straws at Burger King. There are bears in the woods. There is makeup made of powder. Just is. Not positively or negatively charged. A reconstructed relationship with make-up is one corrective experience in the greater jungle of self-parenting. It's like having the power to grab the two street name signs running perpendicular to one another, spin them around, then not get in trouble b/c you spun the actual streets around. That's what it's like to self-parent. That's the type of joy I now experience playing with make-up. Whatever your battle, keep on. Who knows?!?! In 2.5 yrs. your present monster might be so transformed that it too glorifies what light you've reclaimed.

What your body looks like, how it functions, even how you treat it is irrelevant when it comes to Christ's love for you. I know those things may shape some of your other earthly experiences, but on this day of His resurrection - even if you are bursting with candy and ham and egg salad - try not to think about your vessel. Try to think about His love. And be grateful. . #becomingbodyconfident #edrecovery #bodycompassion #bodylove #charitythroughbopo #selflove #beyoutiful #goldenconfidence #effyourbeautystandards #selfcare #antidiet #riotsnotdiets #antidietculture #bodyacceptance #bodyconfident #standforselflove #berebellious #beyourself #bopo #becomingbodypositive #goodbetterbest #churchofjesuschristoflatterdaysaints #endfatphobia #easter #heisrisen #happyeaster

So ive got my work cut out for me. But here's what ive done so far. I downloaded myfitnessplan, step tracker, and any.do I'm going to track my eating habits, exercise, and plan out my days. This isn't just to lose weight. This is a plan for a healthier me. A me that takes care of herself, and has her life in order. So im going to start counting calories and exercising and i know this time i can do it. Im hoping staying updated on this page will help me stick to it. I want to do better and be better. And this is the first step. I wrote down a small plan for tomorrow, ill wake up and weigh myself, take my dog for a walk, and then make a salad. After that I am going to plan out my food for the rest of the day, and decide if i feel well enough to try any other type of exercise. Baby steps.

Decided to try and rid myself of all the clothes that used to fit me. Probably didn't get them all because I was not in the mood to try anything on, have it not fit, and have a moment...but it is a start towards better self and body image. Keep on keeping on ✌️❤️ #bodyimage #bodydysmorphicdisorder #recovery #progressnotperfection #selflove #bodyacceptance #body

Having one of those days where I’m just feeling uncomfortable in my body. In the past, these days would’ve thrown me into a shame spiral. Even early in my journey of healing my relationship with my body, this would’ve freaked me out for fear I was relapsing. And yet, it’s just a human experience in our culture to have days where we don’t feel 100% in our bodies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some things that help me stay grounded on days I feel less than stellar: ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Check the facts. What might be contributing to this feeling? Today I recognized a bunch of contributing factors: I’m tired, my eating schedule has been off because of work and special events, sleep has been off, overly busy this past week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Practice gratitude for all of the shit that has NOTHING to do with my body. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Wear clothes that feel comfy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Treat your body with the kindness it deserves: eat, drink water, get some sunshine, connect with others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Bring into perspective the common humanity of being a human in our heavily saturated diet culture and remember this struggle is not yours alone. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ -Get outside of your head. Look at an orange tree. Pet a dog. Call a friend.

Eat it. Enjoy it. Move on. I’m going to recycle my Xmas post on sugar. _______ Ya heard me. Eat candy. Eat as much as you want. Get lit AF off neon colored peeps, Chocolate bunnies, jelly beans, or whatever floats your boat. You’ll be okay. Promise. —— Human nutritional metabolism is hearty AF and a single day of “overindulgence,” isn’t going to cause any LONG-term damage. Yeah, you might feel a crash a few hours after eating or kinda sluggish, but it’s not like your body goes, “Hmmmmm... I’ll allow 2 cookies, but if this woman even looks at a third, I’m SHUTTING this whole thing down! It’s diabetes and heart disease now, Lady! You’ve pushed me too far!” —— I’ll argue (backed up by science and fancy degrees) that your body thrives on a steady supply of sugar, specifically in the form of Glucose. And get this- all carbs are eventually turned into glucose. That quinoa, sweet potato, and kale meal? Sugar. Sugar. SUUUUGGGGAAARRRRR. —— If you don’t eat enough sources of sugar (carbs!) your body has a few hours supply before it Flip-the-F-Out and starts breaking down your muscle and a fat like a mofo to MAKE sugar. Yup. Your body (esp. your brain and red blood cells) pulls an internal fire alarm when it’s low on sugar. You know how you get hangry? Survival mechanism—> our emotional regulation is weakened because your brain is low on fuel and literally CAN’T EVEN right now. —— You know what is harmful? Food fear and restriction. Demonizing certain foods or components aka, Sugar, doesn’t lead to better health. It creates more stress, anxiety, and binges. Allowing treats as part of your daily life reduces the desire to overeat them. Some days, you won’t eat any, other days- all meals might require a dessert. To be clear, I’m not promoting forgoing all the other food groups- they are important too. But treats and sweets are a sticking point for soooo many people on their #intuitiveeating journey. —— #foodfreedom #sugar #sweettooth #ditchthediet #nondiet #losehatenotweight #nourishnotpunish #edrecovery #selfcare #bodyacceptance #antidiet #selflove #intuitiveeating

My favorite Easter tradition is making resurrection rolls and telling the boys the Easter story! Before going into the oven, each crescent roll is stuffed with a large marshmallow. Throughout the baking process, it disappears! The fluffy treat vanishing from the bread symbolizes the way Jesus vanished from the tomb. However, while paid for the sins of humanity and ascended into heaven, the marshmallow simply leaves a sugary finish on the cinnamon-infused crescent roll. He is risen! #bodyacceptance #intuitiveeating #dietculture #healthateverysize #whole30 #foodfreedom #nondietapproach #beachbody #antidiet #foodfreedom #iifym #healthymom #honoryourbody #allfoodfits #nondiet #edrecovery #mindfuleating #selfcare #fuelyourbody #haes #flexibleeating

People need to get the differences between bragging and being proud or confident trough their thick skulls. When i wake up in the morning “happy” with a shiny smile on my face, that doesn’t mean i know how my day is going to end. If you ask me how I’m doing and i say, “I’m peachy,” i have no idea what I’m doing after high school, i dont know when I’m getting a job or my license, i have no clue when my mood will magically change, and the most important thing i didnt say, “i found the key to life and all its wonders.” Just when i say, “I’m peachy.” I mean I’m doing all my school work, I’m doing my best, i found the importance of life, and that I’m okay with who i am. With that being said, it doesn’t mean i dont find flaws in myself. It just means I’ve learned to be happy with what i have. Some of you petty females need to stop being so envious of others happiness and stop being so judgmental. Let’s all support one another and live in peace with one another. ——————————————————— Keep kickin ass you little warriors 🌻 ——————————————————— #recovery #mentalhealthrecovery #edwarrior #edrecovery #suicideawareness #selfharmrecovery #selflove #selfrecovery #bodylove #mentalhealth #depression #depressionrecovery #anxiety #anxietyrecovery #suicide #selfharm #scars #warrior #havehope #suicidewarrior #motivation #eatingdisorderrecovery #fooddiary #suicideprevention #mentalillness #bodylove #selfharmscars #bodyacceptance #bedrecovery

In my GinaCology Principle No. 2 I talk about The importance of really having an intimate relationship with your body and your sexuality

If you believe that it isn't important to talk about how many calories people eat in a day, then why do you talk about your own intake, which you also know to the exact number? . If you believe that talking about calorie intake could even be harmful, then why do you engage in it? . I've seen several fitness profiles doing this as a way of saying that it's okay to eat a lot. They will often add something like "food is not the enemy". Which is, of course, a great mindset. . But just because that part of the message is positive, doesn't mean the message in its whole is. Because all in all, it reveals a wish to "stay in control". It stresses the suggested importance of counting calories. Meticulously, at that. . I may ruffle some feathers now but honestly, counting calories is usually pointless. Because if you eat intuitively, you will most likely get enough food to get you through the day. If you eat a balanced diet with all important nutrients, you will feel good. If you add some extra protein, you will build muscle. . Yes, you will lose muscle mass if you don't eat enough, but if you don't eat enough, that's probably because you haven't learned to listen to your hunger cues, or because you're stressed out. And if you're stressed out, then reducing stress is the solution, not counting calories. . I may ruffle even more feathers when I say that counting calories, even as a popular fitness profile claiming it's more important to be healthy than skinny, is an eating disordered behavior. Eating disordered behaviors are NOT limited to starving. . Calorie talk is also fatphobic and can be extremely triggering. If someone reading this don't believe me about the negative impact it has, then I ask you to read through the comment sections of such posts and you'll see that it's very... disheartening. . How many calories someone eats in a day is NOT a conversation we need to have. It's NOT something to be shared with others. It's UNNECESSARY! . . [Image description: A picture of strawberries. "Calorie talk: WTF?!" is printed in a white box in the middle of the picture]

I’ve had a few of you’se babes reach out to me about the dress I’m wearing for my Birthday photos, I’m planning on doing a #blog post all about it & I have a #youtube Birthday Haul being filmed this week ‘once my ASOS & Boohoo+ order arrives’ I’m just waiting on few more birthday pieces to turn up first but all the rest is ready to film. I’ll be honest #blogging hasn’t been easy for me over the last few months, I try to pop time aside to sit and write but being chronically ill & other commitments I just haven’t had the mental strength it takes to do it but.. . I’am hopeful that this week I can write a #blogpost and go into detail about where I’m at & what’s been going on & the new direction I’m feeling within me. . . . So this lush dress, it’s from Boohoo+ Australia & I’m wearing a size 22, it’s a fabulous fit I’d say a little oversized which is what I love. I choose the mustard colour but it comes in Black and I think red as well & the absolute best thing it was 50% off & I think it’s still on sale 🙌🏻. It feels great on & the sleeves are positively dreamy ‘70s vintage feels’ .. . xx🧡 . . . . . . . #plussizerockchic #effyourbeautystandards #plussizefashion #plussizeblogger #plusfashion #plussizeclothing #plussizestyle #plussize #psblogger #psootd #fatbabe #fatshion #celebratemysize #beautyatanysize #fashionblogger #bodyacceptance #blogger #bodypositive #whatfatgirlsactuallywear #myboohoostyle #bigandblunt #ootd #ootdfashion #pizzasisters4lyfe #instafashion #thesecurves

What is body confidence? • For me it's wearing what I like without a care in the world. It's not shuttering when someone touches the softer parts of me. It's feeling beautiful with my hair in a bun and my house clothes on. It's having random photos taken of me and not being my own critic. It's giving myself grace when I speak wrongfully to my body, knowing I can try again tomorrow. • What is body confidence to you? • • • • #selflovejourney. #selflove. #unapologeticallyme. #vulnerability. #authenticlyme. #youareworthy. #yourareunique. #yourareperfect. #youareabadass. #youareenough. #bodyacceptance. #bodyliberation. #bodyconfidence. #bodypositive. #loveyoufirst. #honoryourcurves. #believeinyourself. #beyourself. #effyourbeautystandards. #lovemyfatbody. #embraceyourbody. #bodydiversity. #purebodylove. #fatandfree. #curvyconfidence. #mindbodysoul. #happinessisnotadresssize. #findingyourself.

Life's messy - you may as well eat some Nutella! I don't know what it is but I've been OBSESSED with Nutella lately. I eat it pretty much everyday. I don't know about you, but I go through phases when I crave certain things. For a while it was cereal, then it was Reese's peanut butter cups, then ice cream, then I moved on to salted caramels... and so on and so forth. This might sound super silly, but I love having food to look forward to. When I'm at work I think about whatever yummy food/dessert I'm gonna eat when I get home. And it makes me happy. And life gets a little bit better that way! Do you do this too? If so, what's your current obsession??

Agree?

Did you know... ◽️Over $16 billion was spent on cosmetic plastic surgery and minimally invasive surgeries in 2016 ◽️In 2016, over 4.2 million proceudres in the USA we done, over 2.5 million proceudres in Brazil and almost 1.1 million in Japan 😞🤭⚠️ And yet, studies of people that are happy consistently reveal that a person's appearance is not even a close top contender in making someone happy. It's important to remember that this industry THRIVES off of our insecurities. There is so much more to your body than the image you see in the mirror. Our bodies are incredible, resilient machines that allow us to live life to the fullest. Drop us a 💋 below if you're telliing your inner critic + the plastic surgery industry to kiss it.

Are you reflecting on the past 2 days of #passover & calculating everything you ate with regret? Stop looking back! You're not going that way🚫!! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ ➡Click the link in my bio to learn about my 4 week online program which gives you the tools to rid yourself of food guilt, eat healthily without the stress, and how to MOVE ON without regrets - for a truly healthy, happy, and free life🙌! .⁣ .⁣ Throughout all my high school years I would count calories constantly. By the time 7pm rolled around I’d calculate if I have any calories left for dessert. I’d walk around aimlessly in my kitchen, browsing cabinets, and reading nutrition labels, to see what I can eat. I didn't realize just how much brain space it took or how much stress it contributed to my life until years later. So much time wasted😲 And the thing is - I’d often end up eating way past that “calorie allowance” because once I went past my allowance it was “screw it, may as well eat it all!”⁣😣 .⁣ .⁣ The next day would be all about the previous day and how I have to now “be good” and make up for it. I’d work out in the morning and remember the amount of calories I burned on the treadmill because it meant I had extra to eat now. I was constantly reflecting back on my day and the days before and how that would dictate my food choices. It was exhausting! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ Today, if I do end up eating in a way that doesn’t feel good + feel sluggish the next day, or having an uncomfortable body day - I don’t look back! I don’t have regrets. I don’t beat myself up with mean words. I have nothing to “make up” for. I just keep moving forward. I ask: What can I do to feel my best TODAY? Sometimes that’s eating more vegetables, sometimes its a workout to get endorphins going and feeling strong, sometimes its learning from the previous day’s experience, and sometimes it's nothing. It’s knowing that you are OKAY and you can just carry on with your usual habits without looking back. Because you’re not going that way. Stop wasting energy on things you can’t change. Learn, be kind, & move on💯! ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ Do you spend your energy looking back with regrets over what you ate or do you move on? ⁣

It's frustratingly difficult to find positive representations of older plus size women. If you know older plus size women, accounts that support or are allies of older plus size women, or if you are an older plus size woman yourself, please share those accounts or images. I know that "older women" is a subjective term. Society tends to define "older women" as those who are over 40, and, while images of those women are certainly needed and welcomed, I am particularly interested in images of women over 50. . #kathybates #representationmatters #refusetobeinvisible #olderwomen #olderplussizewomen #over40 #over50 #over60 #over70 #over80 #mature #maturewomen #efftheiragingstandards #efftheiragingstandards #bodypositive #bopo #bodyacceptance #fatacceptance #agepositive #agepo #ageism #aging #ageing #ageisjustanumber #proaging #plussize #beautyatanyage #ageless #ageism #sizeism #intersectionalfeminism #smashthepatriarchy

Sorry for being a bit absent recently, y'all. But, I want to give a little bit of an update before I start posting on the regular again. Also, yes my eyes are closed in this pic, but it is still cute. ••••••• ••••••• My therapist thinks that I am thriving and, honestly, I think so, too. Here are some updates from the past week or so: ••••••• ••••••• 1. I went to formal for the first time ever and laughed and danced like a dork and it was great. 2. I took graduation pictures with my great friends and they are super cute. 3. My amazing team and I placed top 5 for a presentation and the finals were cancelled due to potential tornados (#sad). 4. My boyfriend's brother visited town last weekend and instead of studying on a Saturday night I went out to dinner with them and went bowling. 5. I got my nails done and they look pretty. 6. I went to Easter mass today and then to a delicious brunch with my boyfriend. 7. My Family sent me a super cute and sweet Easter basket of goodies. 8. After having migraines for over two weeks they have ~finally~ started to go away (knock on wood). 9. I survived two of the busiest weeks of the semester, due to professors all having stuff due at the same time. 10. I am graduating soon and am having so many mixed emotions. I am excited to see my family, but not ready to leave my second home. 11. I just feel blessed for having Jesus, my fantabulous family, my boyfriend, and my friends (old and new). ••••••••••• ••••••••••• ••••••••••• ••••••••••• #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #ed #edrecovery #anorexianervosa #anorexianervosarecovery #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #recovery #graduation #graduationpictures #selflove #selfcare #selfconfidence #selfacceptance #thriving #survivingnowthriving #love #blessed #thankful #ootd #bodyacceptance #bodylove #blessings #anxiety #anxietyrecovery #anxious #anxiousandcourageous #caughtinconfidence 🦋💚💙🦋.

Call it whatever you like, but the fact is that we all have squishy bits, and no amount of stretching or exercising or sucking in your stomach is going to make that fact go away. It doesn't matter how toned or skinny a body is - the second you sit, slouch, stretch or contort your body there WILL be rolls. I don't like it. No one does. But it's a part of my body, and I have come far enough to know that my body is a recovering body, that it's a lot healthier than it was a couple years ago. I still feel insecure that my squishy bits are on full display, but I also know that their presence being shown in a photo doesn't mean that I'm any less kickass or beautiful or sexy, any less funny or smart or fierce, any less deserving of love. . . This was from two days ago, at a very exciting shoot w amazing people that I'm so, so honoured to know and be working w. Exciting things are coming, and I genuinely cannot wait to be able to tell you guys about everything. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #teambodsitive #bodsitivity #bodypositivity #bodypositive #effyourbeautystandards #honourmycurves #celebratemysize #fashiontruth #imnomodeleither #fitness #selflove #loveyourself #plussize #confidence #selfcare #curves #positivevibes #bodyconfidence #mentalhealth #allbodiesaregoodbodies #bodyacceptance

It would be so discouraging to have MILLIONS of YouTube views and hordes of adoring fans and know that they love your talents, but then have them mostly compliment your hair! We *really* hope things have changed in the 3 years since we first shared this quote from HILARIOUS comedian/writer Mallory Everton (@remallory, formerly of @studioctv) ... but we’re guessing the problem persists. It certainly persists for too many women who receive waaayyy more comments on their appearance than they do about their accomplishments, talents, or character — especially compared to men in similar circumstances. ➕Mallory came to one of our speaking events and then Instagrammed about it, which made us love her even more. She summed up our 1-hour presentation in a beautiful caption: "I went to a great event for @beauty_redefined and walked out bursting with gratitude for my entire body, none of which pertained to how I look ... [see above quote] ... And I've often noticed that even our body-positive comments on social media fall short a lot of the time. So I'm not gonna do that thing where I say 'Hey, even though I've got wrinkles and cellulite and no thigh gap, I'm still beautiful! We're all beautiful!' Because if I said that, no matter how nice and self-esteemy it might seem, I'D STILL BE TALKING ABOUT HOW I LOOKED. Don't look at me, listen to me. GIRLS: I will never tell you that you're all beautiful because you're MORE THAN BEAUTIFUL. We are instruments (for innovation, creativity, adventure), not objects. Seriously, check out Beauty Redefined. These are super smart women debunking an empire of agist, sexist, racist, shame-inducing 'beauty' culture and they mean business." ➕[[Heart eye emojis forever]] Let’s learn to SEE MORE in ourselves and each other — more than a body, more than an object to be admired. When we can SEE more, we can SAY more to each other, and we can BE more! • For more, sign up for our online Body Image Resilience course and see me discuss this in my TEDx talk — both linked in our profile or at beautyredefined.org. #morethanabody #seemorebemore #beautyredefined

Bare Bones: Anorexia Recovery #1 (Sound On) (I found my voice) I was recently diagnosed anorexic. I am a good chance for recovery. But believe it or not I was surprised and felt like I was the last to know. I thought I was anxious and losing weight or too busy much less how long I have had issues with food. Now I am noticing some unhealthy thoughts. Ones I want documented as well as my body. My therapist is finally like "fiiiine as long as you keep eating and gaining and don't stop for the right photo." I won't. That would disrupt the natural process. #eatingdisorderrecovery #ednosrecovery #bodyimageissues #bodyacceptance #eatingdisorderawareness #bodyimage #edrecoverywarrior #bodyliberation #bodydismorphia #arttherapy #artistoninstagram #videoart #artvideo #bwvideo #documentary #experimentaldocumentary #experimentalvideo #body #femaleform # muscle #bones #anatomy #angels #angelwings

Hello friends! Latest project! . . Please share and support the @belatinadigimag page! #repost @belatinadigimag with @get_repost ・・・ Here’s How Body Positivity, a Drag Queen and a Little Gumption Made Big Results for Alexandra Campos ➡️ link in Bio. . . It seems every day coming across my feed I see blog posts, articles, memes, or words meant to elicit positivity. They are often articles with seemingly relatable topics about relationships, navigating motherhood, or identity. But the kind of posts I find myself gravitating towards the most, are the ones meant to empower women with two incredible words: Body Positivity. Many of us have been haunted since childhood all the way into adulthood about our body. How do we get through it? How do we accept how we look if we have always been measured, weighed, and compared against the CDC growth chart? #bodypositive #bodyacceptance #bodypositivity #lovemyself #girlboss #camptazo #alyssaedwards @acnyc_ @alyssaedwards_1 @tazo

Ate some good food today with a wonderful family. No counting. No cutting out. • In the past I would have worried. I would have restricted or gone way overboard. • Today I didn’t obsess over myself or every choice I could make. It left me with plenty of energy to share with those around me instead. • Gifts 🙌🏽✨🌈🍕

We met up with my sister, nephew and brother in law for breakfast today and in all honesty, I was enjoying myself and over ate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I recognized this when we got in the car and I felt overly full. The difference between what happened next and someone who isn’t living a life in food freedom or in a diet mentality is — ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I didn’t beat myself up. I truly enjoyed breakfast at The Original Pancake House with my family. I finished my breakfast while laughing with my nephew and chatting with my brother and sister in law. I wasn’t as focused or intentional with my food as I normally am. But that’s okay, because I was enjoying the company I was with. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I share this to tell you that no one is perfect in their food habits 100% of the time. Food freedom doesn’t require this from you to feel comfortable in your body or normal around food. It gives you the tools to feel okay, even when you’re overly full, even if you cleaned your plate, even if you weren’t intentional with your food. And that’s the beauty of food freedom. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Tell me, what’s your favorite breakfast food?? 🥞

My Easter dress :) . I felt so pretty when I put my dress on this morning. My body image has been kinda negative lately. I did weigh myself recently—and honestly I still might have a problem weighing myself because I do it frequently when I think I’ve gained. I know it’s something I need to work on. Normally the number hasn’t affected me much, especially when I’m doing really well and don’t care, but lately I CARE. And the last number I saw really disappointed me and made me feel awful, like I was a failure, and that hasn’t happened in kind of a while. So eating today and having candy was really hard and I didn’t want to vocalize my feelings because I feel like everyone would just think I’m stupid for feeling that way STILL. After how many years of me having this problem? I feel like I should just be over it? But obviously it doesn’t really work like that. So body image and weight gain acceptance has been really hard...and I have been feeling guilty for eating all day long, but I did feel pretty in this dress. Sometimes getting dressed up helps a bit, other times not, but yeah. Recovery and emotion-wise today was such a weird mixture of feelings. But I did my best guys! We should all feel good in our bodies no matter what we eat or what we weigh, because none of that defines us. I hope everyone has had a great Easter Sunday💜 #recovery #edrecovery #ednosrecovery #osfedrecovery #bulimiarecovery #orthorexiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #bingeeatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #ednos #osfed #bulimia #anorexia #orthorexia #bingeeatingdisorder #selflove #selfcare #bodyacceptance #selfacceptance #bodypositive

My first post!! Super excited to start sharing my fitness journey and fully committing to my bulimia recovery! That and I’ve gained and lost 60lbs over the last few years. My body has been through a LOT of starvation/purging/hell and I’m finally trying to be at peace with myself through nourishment, acceptance and care. I’ve started reverse dieting and so far I’m on 1300cals, increasing by 100 each week! I’ve stopped weighing myself because I refuse to let that control my mental health anymore! It’s time to bloom 🥰🌻 #weightlossjourney #bodypositive #bodyacceptance #reversediet

THE #1 REASON YOU DON’T HAVE THE INCOME YOU WANT _ I’ve been working a job since I mixed ice cream on a cold marble slab and sang for tips at age 15. I worked my way through high school and university and each year I grew, so did my income. And somehow, though my income grew… my bank accounts — they didn’t so much. Throughout the years, regardless if I was singing jingles or slinging drinks bartending, I kept the same amount of debt and the same amount of money in savings. I look back at myself then and it’s obvious to me now… I was repeating the same money story over and over and over again because I had never learned another way. I wish someone would have told me back then that until I examined my limiting beliefs, I’d never change my financial situation for good. Finally, I realized something had to change. I studied from experts and learned the tools needed to go back in time and rewrite my history. After detailing my past money identity I discovered the #1 reason humans don’t have the finances they want — Deep down they don’t feel worth it. I learned the following hack from Marissa Peer and it’s so simple, it’s almost unbelievable. Simply write “I am Enough” on your bathroom mirror and repeat it to yourself everyday. I had it written in red dry-erase marker on my mirror in Barcelona for just 12 weeks before my entire financial situation transformed. I coupled the new mantra with the same tools I share in the (FREE) video series linked in my bio 😍 — and within a few months I was inexplicably saying goodbye to $15k in debt and hello to an abundant savings account. If you have any questions about my story or the free series send a message to my inbox! I’m always happy to share 🙌✨

Hey guys here is your reminder that social media ISN’T reality. People will only share what they want others to see. It’s a highlight reel, with edited photos in perfect lighting, and with all of the “best” angles. They don’t always look like that!! And you don’t need to look like them to be worthy of existing. The whole “summer body, winter body” is bullshit. You are beautiful no matter what and your body doesn’t have to look a certain way for you to wear a swimsuit, I promise. . Even in general, people will only show you what they want you to see. No ones life is perfect, and everyone has their personal struggles. Comparison is something I know many people struggle with (including myself.) and I wish it was easy to just stop comparing, there are some things you can do to help though. On social media unfollow people you find yourself comparing with, and if it leaves you with negative emotions, unfollow people who make you feel less than, unfollow the people that when they make a new post, you look at it and feel upset. Trust me, it’s not worth it to continue following these people. . Follow accounts that inspire creativity, that motivate you, remind you to appreciate yourself, people who make you laugh and feel happy. Follow people who you find to be interesting and follow accounts that can give you a break from how draining social media can be. And I’m talking about puppy accounts, the dodo, animal sanctuary accounts (so cute), follow fun things that remind you there is good out there! Tbh that’s why I follow quite a few animal accounts on this account. Sometimes I need a break from scrolling through political posts and heavy posts in general. It really does lighten things up :) . Make your social media more of a place that you don’t dread going on by adding accounts that create positive emotions 🌼 #selfcare #realrecovery #recoverywin #recovery #selflove #confidence #vegan #anorexiarecovery #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #perfectlyimperfect #imperfectlyperfect #bodyacceptance #selfacceptance#embracethesquish #authenticself #edwarrior #edfighter #recoverywarrior #normalizeallbellies #selfconfidence #worthy

We had the best time in St. Louis for a mini getaway. We definitely enjoyed our time down there with great food and a few too many drinks. While I would normally try to get back on track this week, my approach is a little different. My half is on Saturday, and instead of trying to worry about getting blue dots everyday, I’m just going to focus on fueling my body. I’ll track as best as I can, but my main concern is making sure my body is fueled for those 13 miles. So I started my week off with one of those freezer bag meals. Not the healthiest choice, but it was better than a pizza guesstimating at 12sp for my bowl.

I am at a point in my recovery that I never believe that I could be at. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ A few years ago if you’d have told me I’d be thriving as I am now I wouldn’t have believed it. I fell into a pit of darkness so desolate that I believed I could never return to the happy, energetic, care-free girl I once was. I believed this horrible disorder would consume my every thought and waking moment for the rest of my life. ⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Today I am taking a step back to be proud of how far I’ve come! I am crushing it! My hair is growing back, my body is fit and happy. I’m full of energy and back to my usual spunky personality and I can eat food now without feeling overwhelming fear and actually enjoy it! I am able to pursue and accomplish my goals, and love myself and those around me.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ Although I am not yet where I want to be in my recovery, I am definitely better than I ever have been, and that is something worth celebrating. If I can improve this much in just a few short years, I need to believe that a life free of this disorder is possible. And I will continue to strive for that everyday. 💗⁣⁣ ⁣⁣
