Learning how to love your body doesn’t need a physical transformation

I began my “weight loss” journey by shedding the heavy, limiting beliefs about my body,

I became “fit” by exercising the right to love myself and appreciating my softness,

I cut out “unhealthy foods” by deciding negative-self talk was no longer sweet.

I chose to advocate for whole self instead of any number on a scale.

"I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."

People are becoming aware of how much weight I'm losing. I've lost 20 pounds in.. Oh, I don't know, maybe a month-ish? But my mom literally told me tonight 'You're, like, /shrinking./' Every scale says I'm at a healthy weight. I still have fat on my tummy and muscle on my legs from running up stairs every day. I feel physically better than ever, but I don't want to hurt others by losing weight.. ;;

TW ED

You cannot measure an eating disorder. Your BMI can be overweight and you can still have an ED or distorted eating habits. You will never lose enough weight  to satisfy an eating disorder because even a -400 lbs on a scale wouldn’t be enough.

You deserve to be proud of your body and its shape and different textures and all that it does. You deserve to eat a general minimum of 2,000 calories each day. You deserve to exist and love all that you are. 

Eating disorders are tricky and I absolutely am not a professional and cannot diagnose, but it seems like you are rationalizing the distorted behaviors by using your feelings around weight, and that flags ED thinking. NO matter what, you deserve to reach out and make sure your body is healthy in all of its totality, not just weight.

You deserve to love yourself.
