Aloha my beauties! Sending you some island love and thought I would share a bit about me 💗
1. I will never describe how I feel as “fat”. Fat is not a feeling....when my brain has the urge to go there I try to check in and really try to identify the real feeling.
2. You won’t see me post pictures of food (unless it’s something artistic and beautiful). At a time I found this to be useful and continue to encourage others if it is helpful in their process. For me, after years of ED treatment and meal plans, I would much prefer focusing on what I love doing and what makes me feel happy and fulfilled❤️❤️❤️
3. You will see me post pictures in bikinis because I live in the tropics and spend a large portion of my life in the ocean. Even if I don’t feel 100 percent comfortable I will continue to live my life accordingly.
4. You WILL see me post real life shit. The pain I have been through, the abuse and trauma I have endured. The factors leading up to my eating disorder as well as the recovery process and life after ED. You WILL see posts when I’m in mental crisis, when I’m suffering and having pain and feeling vulnerable. *
Recovered doesn’t mean perfection EVER. It DOES mean dealing with the real shit...digging deep...looking past the distractions of food. It means having the willingness to face your worst fears...to embrace pain not distract or avoid it. We all have the ability to do this...we might need some extra help at times which is why these groups are beautiful 💜
Sending you island kisses 😘 I challenge you to do something nice for yourself this weekend 🐳
I’ve been putting off hanging things up since I moved here. It seems odd that after five years of switching places, I’m now in a spot for a few years. Turns out I just needed a push, or someone to give me their old rocking chair 👌 now I have the perfect spot to do my morning PD reading 🙌
