This picture was taken last night by my boyfriend on Skype. I didn’t know it was being taken at the time, and when he sent me the picture, I was surprised because at first I didn’t realize it was me. The girl in the picture was too pretty to be me. The girl in the picture is beatiful, and it IS me. I’ve finally come to terms with the way I look, even though I have cellulite on my thighs and love handles and some flab. I’ve stopped trying to skip meals, and when I do eat a lot I try not to get mad at myself like I used to. I even started running recently-not to lose weight, but just to be healthy and because it makes me feel good.
My body is perfect as it is, and I AM pretty. I’m finally on the road to accepting myself.
