This is a way for me to talk about and inspire my journey to lose the weight I have wanted to for years and be the person I know I can.

Ask Me questions if you have them and I promise to try and help!
Look at you. You’re young. And you’re scared. Why are you so scared? Stop being paralysed. Stop swallowing your words. Stop caring what other people think. Wear what you want. Say what you want. Listen to the music you want to listen to. Play it loud as fuck and dance to it. Go out for a drive at midnight and forget that you have school the next day. Stop waiting for Friday. Live now. Do it now. Take risks. Tell secrets. This life is yours. When are you going to realise that you can do whatever you want?
You are not ugly love and there is no reason to hate yourself. I know it is easy to pick yourself apart and think of all sorts of things that you don’t like, but what’s the use of that?
I used to have terrible body image problems that led to disordered eating habits. I would spend time thinking of what was wrong with my body and how I wasn’t as attractive because of ‘x.’ I realized one day that those things aren’t what’s important in life and if you base your worth on such superficial criteria, you are going to be miserable.
Decide right now that you are beautiful. It sounds simple, but that’s all there is to it. Start saying things that you love about yourself. It doesn’t have to be all aesthetic, but the whole package. Maybe you love your laugh, the way you can brighten someone’s day, your fantastic cupcake baking ability, a freckle on your nose, it could be anything. Decide that you are beautiful and be confident about it. Never let anyone tell you differently.
Pursue your passions. Who has time to pick themselves apart when there is so much to do in life? Learn a language, meet new friends, go out for coffee, watch your favorite films, go dancing, go out into nature and appreciate all the beauty. Set goals and chase them :) There are so many more worthwhile ways to spend your life, go see everything and experience things and never let how you look hold you back.
Remember that ‘beauty’ is a relative concept. There is no one image of beautiful, regardless of what society tries to tell you. In my opinion people are the most beautiful for all of the things that they are, rather than what they look like. People who are kind, stand up for what they believe in, funny, clever, trustworthy, brave, determined…those are the sort of people I want to be around, not someone who is simply ‘pretty’ or ‘handsome.’ Your ‘flaw’s and ‘quirks’ make you who you are, embrace them and start living xx
Brilliant response. That is all.
