Time to get vulnerable... My weight has been a longtime struggle ever since I was a child. I lose weight and I gain weight, up and down like a yo-yo. Vacation is coming up and I have been bashing myself for weeks now... thinking how could I let this happen again? Not to mention having to scroll through Instagram, the scariest place for a girl with body image issues. Eating right and finding the time to exercise when you’re always exhausted is difficult, and working two jobs keeps me very busy. However, the bashing and self-loathing stops today. •
• How could I be mad at my body... it’s what carries me around, hands that work hard to help support my family, and legs that take me from job to job. I should be grateful to have a fully-functioning body, a luxury that some people don’t have. I’m still going to work on myself until I feel comfortable with my image, but I’m not going to hate myself in the process anymore. If you’re going through a similar situation: do what you gotta do to get to a good place, but remember to be kind to yourself. We really do a lot in this day and age. Work hard but cut yourself some slack too! •
• P.S. how “busy” do I look sipping my coffee and checking emails lol 😂 •
