Actually it’s so worth it. Because I can go to dinner with family, and not cry in the bathroom. I can go on day trips with out planning out each restaurant I’d allow myself to go to. I can stop for a coffee during a long day at work, I can eat for a full day, and not burn off every calorie I ate. I can go a whole day at work with out sneaking into a tanning room to do jumping jacks.
I’ve gained 30 lbs. but I’ve also gained freedom. And that’s much more important.
Aw, weird seeing this be reblogged again
Wow you gained 30 pounds from recovery? Kind of doesn't seem worth it
So I saw the first picture on my dash and could not be more repulsed/motivated. Repulsed because the ideologies in the first photo are wrong —you don’t destroy yourself to be happy. You improve yourself. Depriving your body and your soul of nutrients and fuel gets you nowhere.
Then, I was motivated to make the bottom picture. So many people have helped me become who I am today. I too, once used the top photo as “thinspiration”. I then learned that harming yourself is not the answer to anything. If I learned anything from this process, it’s to remain true to myself. Feeding myself and fueling myself with positive thoughts got me as far as I am today. Not negativity or body shaming.
woooo you go girl
Thank you for this!
Best thing ever! THANK YOU!
Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
thank you, history side of tumblr.
He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.
Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.
Thank you medical side of tumblr
