I can fit into this dress again and that makes me ecstatic because it’s been a while since I could wear something without feeling like my arms were too big or my legs were too stumpy to show, and though I still have days where I look at myself and I’m unsatisfied with what I see, it’s great now that I’m seeing changes in my body. Even if they’re little and unnoticeable to others, i like knowing that I’m doing something right for myself. I have learned to appreciate the parts of me I always wanted to hide: my “pudgy” face and my weird thighs… I always found that I was lumpy in all the wrong places. These past few months, I’ve realised that although I don’t love my body, it loves me - it works to keep me alive even when I don’t want to be. And so, I’m learning day by day how to take care of it. Basically, to sum it up, today I am happy. And I hope that I’ll feel this way tomorrow, and the next day, and the weeks after.
