I used to chase thinness in the hope that being a smaller size would miraculously make me happier. But it never does. ✖️ Many reasons girls struggle with eating problems is because they can’t deal with the other issues in their life and it’s a way of regaining control. But guess what—you can be the thinnest girl in the world, and put every ounce of energy you have into being thin, and it STILL won’t alter your life or solve the other problems you’re dealing with. ☹️ I found the picture on the left this week and specifically remember taking that selfie and feeling hideously ‘fat’ and disgusting. And it was all because my hips measured bigger than 35″, which wasn’t model standard. My eyes look sad, puffy and tired because I hadn’t eaten and I was upset all morning about looking ‘bloated’. ? Taking that photo was a way of punishing myself; a reminder that I could be thinner, and that I was close to reaching my goals, but not thin enough. And that’s the thing: when you spend your life chasing numbers—whether that’s money or numbers on a scale—you will NEVER be satisfied. ?? You might get a slight high, but within an hour, you will wonder how to get the next ‘hit’. The advice I give to anyone struggling is to chase health instead. Count colours on a plate rather than calories. ??????? There is nothing selfish about looking after yourself, and when you nourish your body, other problems in your life become easier to handle. ? If you’d told me that I’d look how I do now and be happy, I would have never believed it. Don’t wake up in ten years time and realise you’ve missed out on life, simply because you hated yourself and focused on what other people thought of you. Whether you believe it or not, there are people who would die to be in your shoes, so love yourself like they do! ? P.S. Thanks @abbeydrucker for shooting girls of all shapes and sizes for your work! It’s women like you changing the industry for the better ? @allwomanproject #iamallwoman #bodypositive
