Here, have a selfie.
Hey wow I was hot last winter
So I was taking photos for boyfran and was worried about my 4 months of almost ZERO running/workouts but was pleasantly surprised when I found that I don’t look that bad. So I’m gonna try not to feel so bad about my body today. And hopefully tomorrow. And the day after that.
Because damn I’m cute.
Sculpture is such an underrated art form..
The third one always makes me stop and stare
i’ve been wanting to make this post for a while to recognize how far i have come with my body image and my e.d.
before - 2012 - 130 pounds
i remember i was getting ready for a party at college. i felt so uncomfortable in that dress because it showed so much skin and i thought i was so fat and i really really didn’t want to go because of that. i had maybe gained 2 or 3 pounds since moving to the dorms and was feeling so disgusted with myself. you can even see it in my face. the timid, scared, insecure look of my body language. at this point in my life, i was struggling with anorexia, bulimia, ocd, anxiety, and exercise bulimia. i obsessively weighed myself every day - multiple times a day, counting my calories and exercised till they equaled 0. just destroying my body because i thought i wasn’t good enough, or thin enough, or pretty enough.
after - 2014 - 180? pounds
the other day, my amazing best friend ashlee wanted to do a photo shoot with me as her model. the old jenny would have been hesitant, hating to have her picture taken - and would have flat out refused when ashlee suggested i only wear underwear and a sheer kimono. the new jenny though, was like fuck yeah! let’s do this!
although, i still do have my insecurities, i have so much more confidence now. i am the most confident i have ever been in my life. more confident than the skinny jenny at college, or the sick jenny in high school, or the little jenny criticizing her weight in front of the mirror repeating to her reflection what the kids yelled to her at school. i haven’t weighed myself in almost 2 months (hence the question mark on my current weight). i don’t feel the need to. i feel like i am finally working my way to recovery (although i still have a far ways to go). today, i can honestly say that i love myself, i am enough, & i am fucking beautiful!
i just wanted to show the world that before and after doesn’t always have to mean weight loss. before, i was thin but sick and destroying my body trying to achieve happiness — when in reality i was miserable. now, i am happier and healthier than i have ever been and am continuing to work on myself and body image.
nevertheless, just remember, you are fucking fabulous and beautiful. i am always here if anyone needs to talk or anything <3
"…Writers remember everything…especially the hurts. Strip a writer to the buff, point to the scars, and he’ll tell you the story of each small one. From the big ones you get novels. A little talent is a nice thing to have if you want to be a writer, but the only real requirement is the ability to remember the story of every scar.
Art consists of the persistence of memory."
