He took my hand in his, guiding my fingertips along the skin of his thighs, I could feel the softness separated by streams of pale white skin- stretchmarks- connecting and weaving throughout his skin, I was a cartographer documenting new territory, letting my fingers trace over the small lines that seamed to keep him intact…Creating interlocking puzzle pieces of skin in their wake as if without them glueing him together he’d disapear into a thousand bits and pieces, magical. He brought my face to his and whispered softly “we all have them, they’re not bad”.

Tw: eating disorder, self-hate
I’ve been insecure about my physical appearance for a very long time. My weight has fluctuated massively over the past 6 years as I used food as a control over a difficult and stressful relationship with my family. This caused me to become very ill a few years back and my self-hatred continued. But since leaving school and starting uni I have become more accepting of my physical appearance. Everyone is different and beautiful in their own ways there is no right or wrong way to look. I have developed a lot more confidence and learnt to love myself for the way I am
This blog has given me the confidence to show off one of my biggest insecurities, which is my stomach and helped me live a life that does not revolve around what people think of my physical appearance. For that I thank you. <3

Trigger Warning: mentions of diet, calories, bullying, disordered eating
Years of being picked on for my weight had really messed up my perspective on myself and life in general. All the hatred lead me to believe that there was really something wrong with how I looked. I wasn’t at all motivated until I realized that I needed to stop drowning myself in self pity and do something about it. At first, I’ll be honest, I did it to prove everyone wrong. I then became obsessed to become ‘skinny.’ That was my goal. I always knew that my body type was not that of a skinny persons’ but I tried as hard as I could and developed an eating disorder. I would eat 500 calories and burn off 400 every day. I was growing weak and tired and still was unsatisfied. It was a hard fight to win but eventually I realized I cannot be “perfect”, I only had to be myself. I started over and here I am. Trying each and every day to truly love myself. It’ll be hard but I know that I can get there.

TRIGGER WARNING: EATING DISORDER / NEGATIVE BODY IMAGE / SELF HARM
It’s been maybe 3-4 months since I started recovering from my anorexia. I never had a problem with my body, in fact, I loved my body. I started taking birth control and saw that I gained a little weight on it (I weighed 110 at this point, I was only 4’10). I felt a little down so I decided to eat healthier. Unfortunately, eating a salad once a day didnt change much. Shortly I realized that I could drop those pounds quickly unless I drastically changed my calorie intake. For months upon months I would eat 0-500 calories a day plus exercise. I started seeing results but still was not satisfied. I soon lost my period, got bruised everywhere, and my hair started to fall out. Badly. I passed out all of the time and all of this led to me to isolation and depression. I was mean, I never went out anywhere, and I was crazy if I was around food. I began to purge at that point, and I would take about 10 laxatives every day. I destroyed my intestines and now using the bathroom is a struggle. I dropped down to 89 lbs and decided I wanted to try to stop. Of course, I relapsed about a week in and purged, but I was determined. I raised my calorie intake up to a recovering number (what a nightmare that was), and exercised only for a short time a day. I am now back up to a healthy weight and still gaining. My hair has stopped falling out and my period came back. Sure, I’m obviously a lot larger than I was a few months ago, but I feel a million times better. This is a recent photo of me enjoying my curves :)
