Today I wanted to share something that helped me through my eating disorder recovery the past couple of years. Its something I had thought about before but was reminded of the past 2 weeks being in Anatomy class. It’s been learning about what actually fits in a person. Something that helped me with my body image was realizing I am not fat, there is just a lot of stuff inside my stomach. There is a lot of organs, muscles, skin and fluid. Especially after eating your stomach may look bigger but it’s because your organs have expanded.
Here’s some pictures to illustrate what I mean:
Seeing pictures like these make me feel super skinny. It’s truly amazing to see how God has created and made us. So intricate and detailed.
Sometimes all we need is a good perspective shift. I hope this helped!
