I was told at age 15 that I was fat.
I was convinced from that moment on that something was wrong with me.
I decided I wasn’t going to eat anymore. I had so much shame around my body from that point onwards and I developed a massive eating disorder as a teenager.
Think back to a time when you were a teenager looking at a magazine. You probably found yourself thinking that the woman on the cover looks fat, even though she looks absolutely amazing.
Society has done this to us. Society has had a huge part in conditioning us to believe that one weight or a certain type of body is better than another.
Even when you are at a healthy weight, you are fed messages that the women you see are fat, and if that’s true then you must also be fat.
There is so much focus on a woman’s body. Women’s bodies are more scrutinized than a man’s body. Everyone seems to have an opinion about our bodies.
Well I’m here to tell you:
You have a right to feel good, comfortable, and confident in your body right now as it is. You have a right to do what you want with your body.
That might mean losing weight, getting cosmetic surgeries, getting Botox, wearing or not wearing makeup, dressing the way you want. Whatever it is that makes you feel happy, you have a right to do that.
Love yourself, love the way your body looks. Not only that, but realize there is more to life than what you look like. There’s more to you than the way you look. You’re a human being, you’re not an object.
