So week one is officially over. I spent the week observing the class and getting to know the students and their daily routines. At the end of the day today, we moved…
My therapist asked me to create something “motivating” so I made these.
I really love these, and I reblog them every single time. Some of you don’t realize how easy it’s to forget to do some of those stuff or how hard they can be some days.
Can I get these or
This comic hit me on a personal level. When I was 19 I went from being at the low end of a normal BMI to being seriously underweight. I was really ill for a very long time, and I ended up in a place where you could count my ribs and were my tailbone and sternum stuck out further than my breasts or butt. I had lots of people make comments like the ones in this comic that would really sting. I felt really isolated in my problem because any time I mentioned something I would hear things like, “I wish I had that problem!”
I wanted to say, “Really? You wish that you were so underweight that a flu could legitimately kill you? You wish that you were medically required to drink 3 meal replacements per day on top of regular meals? You wish that you were forbidden from doing cardio because losing any more weight could cause your organs to shut down? You wish you had to go to the doctor’s office every week to be weighed because you’re at real risk of serious health problems? Because I sure as hell don’t.”
When I gained weight back, I filled out clothes better and felt a lot better about myself and my body. I was too embarrassed to tell people about my pride in having gained weight because I was so worried about their reactions. I’m so much happier where I am now.
Me, every time I do anything in front of people.
Also, I should be in bed. See you in 6 hours.
