As womxn, we focus so much on whats wrong with ourselves and not whats wonderful about ourselves. Love your body love yourself. I will take you from from “Urgh I don’t like this about me” to “Oh my I am beautiful, desirable and so worth it.”

My Story

When I was younger, all the girls in school looked better then me, I thought. All the women in fashion magazines were all beautiful and skinny. I am wanted to emulate them. I thought that was what I was supposed to look like.

Why could I just look like someone else? Why could I not be someone else? Why can’t I just look like the people in magazines, on TV, in the movies? These questions flooded my mind constantly over and over.

I came from a home that didn’t have a lot of love in it. I was constantly told I was a fat pig, disgusting, unlovable, undesirable that I eventually believed it and repeated that in my head over and over. I tried everything to look and feel different. I was also in the closet for being gay and didn’t have any stable, supporting outlets to turn to, being I live in a religious household.

I struggled with emotional eating, anorexia. I would shove multiple diet pills down my mouth. I would wear rubber bands on my wrists and would snap them every time I reached for food. I would eat and eat and then take laxatives to get it all out.

I also tried every diet pill, every diet fad there was. You name it, I tried it. Some would work and some wouldn’t. The fix was always temporary. The weight would come back and then some.

 

As a teenager I was a little heavier than most kids. And I didn’t like it so I would starve myself and then I would binge eat. By the time I was in my twenties, I was almost 300 pounds. I was so afraid of myself, my potential, who I was, the body I was in, that I ate and created this barrier around me.

I struggled so much I did things to my body that were so hurtful and painful. I was constantly stressed. I struggled with anxiety, depression, I had so much angry and sadness in me, it was overwhelming, so I ate.

By the time I was 26, I was told by a doctor that if I didn’t lose the weight I wouldn’t live to see my son turn 5, he was 2 at the time. I had high cholesterol, high blood pressure and I was border-line diabetic. A friend had recommended I Weight Watchers and in 13 months I lost 105 pounds.

However I still continued to yo yo diet even after that. Some weight would come back on and some I would lose again.

Why???

I still maintained that mindset of not worthy, not good enough, not loving myself. And continued on the cycle of depression and anxiety.
