i follow back :)

The picture on the left was 2 years ago.
The picture on the right was 2 weeks ago.
I remember thinking I was happy when the picture on the left was taken. I thought I had a lot since I was skinny. I could wear tiny clothes and I was beautiful because I was skinny. But the truth is, I was not happy. I was completely isolated in my own world of running and eating as little as possible. I had no friends. I was hungry and sad and tired. Being skinny wasn’t happy and fun - skinny was not being able to go on waterslides because my spine was bony and it hurt, skinny was not being able to sleep on my side because my knee bones pressed together, skinny was my hair was thin and brittle, my nails were flaky, I was cold all the time, skinny was staying up late at night thinking about food because I was so hungry. 
Two years of recovery later, including gaining weight, I can say that I am HAPPY. It is a long path of ups and downs and relapse; some days are self-love and some, not so much. But I am happy and I am healthy and I eat everyday and I have energy to do all the things I love! I surround myself with other happy and healthy people. I enjoy food and company and I enjoy living. 
I love myself. I am proud of myself. I am strong, happy, and healthy. Everyone deserves to feel these things - everyone is beautiful in the body that makes them feel happy and allows them to do the things they enjoy and love life! Please go out each day and find something great in life and enjoy food and love yourself - you have one amazing life to live, so you might as well live it happy!!:)
