Hope To Like My Reflection
02/28/2018

I have anorexia. Everyday is a struggle to live in my skin. I'm not happy with my body, but I am trying to be. I don't know where that happiness comes from. Numbers? Sizes? Or something deeper than that, like self acceptance despite rolls, flaws, etc.? I'm not in recovery, but I'm not in an active relapse either.

 

I'm at a healthy weight of 126 lbs. I'm a size 1-3 in jeans, size small-medium in shirts.
My lowest weight ever was 92 lbs. My highest ever was 185 lbs. Yeah, I've been all over the place with my weight!
I suppose my real goal is self love and body acceptance instead of body hate.
My hope is that one day I can look in the mirror and at least like my reflection.

My Body Stories A New Definition of Confidence
Every day of high school I weighed 246 lbs. & today I weigh exactly the same. When I look at these pictures I can’t help but notice that there is a remarkable difference between these two versions of me. It is as noticeable, to me anyway, as the difference in the colors of my hair. Want to know what the difference is? C-o-n-f-i-d-e-n-c-e. Confidence in knowing who I am. Confidence in my abilities as a woman. Confidence in knowing that I am beautiful by MY standards not someone else’s.
Learn Not To Be So Hard On Ourselves
I, like everybody else, question my weight sometimes, and I'm working on not being too hard on myself. For the women out there questioning their looks, remember that there is no "normal." Be the weight you feel most comfortable in. I am just a tad under 5' 2" and built with curves. I would probably say I have an "hourglass" figure. I tend to store fat on my lower face and arms/upper body. At my comfortable weight of 115, I feel heavy and think I look chunky in photos.

News MBG, A Woman Owned and Operated Start–Up
In 2010, Odessa Cozzolino had a vision—what if women could band together to produce a crowd-sourced database of images of female bodies unmanipulated by media forces? She wondered: would it be possible to create a safe, online space where women could browse pictures that their peers took of themselves to gain an empowering assessment of the wide variety of bodies out there in the world?
