Here is something that is unbelievably hard for me to post. But I feel like I should. This is my stomach, in a bikini, while sitting. No angles, no editing, no helpful lighting. I’m not flat, not muscled, toned, or sexy. My love handles/hips are over sized. I have folds, and chub, and stretch marks. And none of that. Not a single damn thing about that, makes me any bit less than anyone, any bit less beautiful, or human. I am a “real woman” because I am a person identifying as female. If I were curvier, or slimmer. I’d be no more, no less, the same person. What I am trying to say, in response to the anonymous message I received earlier. Having put on weight in my recovery, makes me no more, and no less of a person. The numbers on my pants, scales and nutrition labels. No longer control my entire life. And that’s pretty great. Sorry for rambling. But I just want every person struggling with a disordered relationship with food, to know. You can make it out. This doesn’t have to be a death sentence.Dream body right here. I love this lady. She is such an inspiration for self love and recovery.
I can’t even believe this is still going.
This girl is strong. Stronger than me!
This is possibly one of my favorite bopo/recovery posts ever.
Wow thank you.
God you’re amazing
how to lose 3 inches off your waist— super quick, easy, and healthy
Yep, I went from a 31” waist to a 28” waist overnight. Literally. Overnight. All I did was go to bed.
We are always comparing our worst to the best of others, and we don’t take the time to appreciate our bodies in less than our perception of ideal states. I love when people post photos comparing their morning tummy to their bloated after dinner tummy because this encourages not being ashamed of our tummies in their constant flux & flow. It’s easy to look at ourselves after a big meal and think we are “fat”, that food has turned us into a whale and we become scared to eat more food. Fuck that. Appreciate the ability of your intestines and stomach to expand as you fill it with nourishment, as it hugs your food and absorbs its nutrients. Never go to bed hungry. Eat past 7. Eat at 2am. Eat whenever you are hungry, and stop when you are satisfied. Trust the intuitive nature of your body and it will treat you like the goddess you are. light & love xx
I like this. Because people gonna really think she lost something quick too and all she did was let her body do what it needs to do.
I’m here for this.
Saw this somewhere else and felt the need to post it cause no one else ever really tells you this stuff
My mom never really noticed. She noticed when she was breast feeding my little brother and blood started coming out instead of milk.
My mom said she felt and saw a little lump in the shower. She was lucky enough she found it at stage 2
My mom had a mammogram. The radiologist thought the spots were just regular calcium deposits.
Turns out it was triple negative breast cancer that had spread to her lymph nods. Mastectomy, radiation and chemo saved her life.
This could SAVE a life.
dont be embarrassed to reblog, this post could be life saving
Signal BOOST and pass it on. I had a breast cancer scare before (luckily it was just scar tissue…) and information like this kept me calm and collected at the doc’s.
As a cancer patient myself, who found my own cancer through a supposed LARPing injury last year, i know how scary it is and how important it is to catch it early. Please spread this around!
listen to ur boobs
its all in the boobs
hoW MANY TIMES AM I GOING TO REBLOG THIS ! SORRY FOLLOWERS , #sorrynotsorry
REBLOG,THIS COULD SAVE SOMEBODY!!! DONT BE EMBARRASSED!!!
my cat literally found my mothers breast cancer. So go get checked if your pets keep touching the same spot with their paw. this is serious
I literally cannot reblog this enough. Get. Your. Mammograms, ladies. My mom is Stage 1, thank God, but she still has to go through chemo because it’s aggressive. Pay attention to your body and get regular checkups if you can afford them or if you have a Planned Parenthood nearby. This isn’t something to be taken lightly.
