Trigger Warning: eating disorders
So ive wanted to do this for a long time, but I was scared. Scared of what people would think, say, feel. But I have a story to tell and I think its time I told it.
So my names Savannah, when I was 17 years old I developed Anorexia with Bulimic Tendencies, Through extensive counseling and a 58 day stay at a treatment center called Remuda Ranch I was able to curb my urges and get back to a healthy lifestyle. The bio in my blog is currently 10 months Eating Disorder free. But thats not true. Because while you mat not be partaking in behaviors, once this disease controlls you your never tuly free of it. BUT THATS NOT THE POINT!! The point is pushing past the voices, feelings, hurt, and negative thoughts. I will never be 100% free of Anorexia because through the hard times Ive been able to become someone new. Someone free! I also suffer from SH but its getting better and I dont partake in it anymore! My scars dont define me, they show me what I dont want to become again! Thanks for reading:)

Hello lovely people! I always love submitting here because of everyone’s positive and generous comments :) 
I’ve been having trouble loving myself recently as I’ve ended up gaining a lot of weight in a short amount of time. The journey to self love is hard but giving myself a little wink in the mirror each day and telling myself positives rather than negatives has definitely helped me!

I felt okay wearing just a swimsuit for the last four-week vacation. Still not brave enough to attempt a fatkini but I think I looked pretty good.
Back in the cold UK and in need of some sun. Come say ‘Hiyaaa’?

Binging has led me to gain basically a large amount of weight in a short amount of time, so I’m far from my “base weight”. I’ve had body dysmorphia my whole life but I was able to manage it; my mind was never filled entirely of thoughts about my body’s form and weight until the last, idk, 5 years of my life? This recent weight gain, from the past 6-7 months, has added a lot of stress and increased my depression, and I just haven’t been doing well. The photos I’m submitting are of areas that are hardest for me to accept. I have to accept these things in order to function this upcoming fall semester. xoxo

TW: Self Harm
Once upon a time, I wasn’t happy with who I was. When I looked in the mirror, I wondered if anyone would ever be able to love me. If anyone took my picture, I would demand it to be deleted. I would pinch my belly, and yell at it for being bigger than those of others. I would slice lines into my thighs wishing that they would get the hint and shrink to a ‘respectable' size.
Years have passed and I am sad now looking back on how I thought of myself. I realize now that my body is not play-dough to be molded, but a warm cocoon for my soul to nestle inside. I wish I had realized it sooner, because in the end, the one I really needed that love from was myself. It’s been a long road, but I can finally say that I love myself and my body. So, here is a picture for all of you. Because I am here and I want to show the world how strong and beautiful I am.
Love yourself. Respect yourself. You are the only you in this entire world. And the world is better for having you in it.
