When you see someone for the first time,
what’s the first thing you notice?
I bet it’s not the size of their thighs,
but more likely their smile or the glimmer in their eyes,
because here’s the thing,
weight and size, it’s really not that interesting.
As tied up as you may be in your own weight, no one else cares.
Whether you’re a size XS or a size XL, at the end of the day, you’re human.
And chances are, your mind is distorting what you actually look like anyway.
So, I know it’s hard, but try to forget about weight and size, even if it’s just for a day.
Let your mind wander.
Let yourself think about what your life would be like without an eating disorder,
I can assure you, you will not be disappointed.
Take steps for your future self today.
Stop body checking.
Stop with the comparisons.
Leave the scales for the fish and start living.
