Прощавай, анорексіє: 23-річна британка похвалилася бажаними складками на животі
Дівчина дуже задоволена своїми апетитними формами і новими об'ємами
Британка з графства Ессекс, яка кілька років боролася з анорексією, похвалилася в Instagram фото в нижній білизні і з новими пишними формами, передає Daily Mail.
За даними видання, 23-річна Меган Джейн Креб показала фото, на якому порівняла свій зовнішній вигляд в двох різних позах. На одному з фото її складки на животі очевидні.
"По-моєму, одна з цих фотографій красивіша. Але я не про ту, про яку ви думаєте", – зазначила вона в підписі до кадру.
I think that one of these pictures is more beautiful than the other. But it's not the one you think. One would be called curvy, the other fat. One looks like a 'before', the other looks like an 'after'. One will inspire people to tell me that I'm unhealthy, unworthy, unlovable. The other will be praised, admired, desired. And even though I've spent my life believing that the version of me on the left is more valuable than the version on the right, I've changed my mind now. I think it's more beautiful just to be yourself. Because the picture on the left was taken with all the pressures of what a 'perfect' body should look like in mind. The body is posed. The face is polished. The angle is unnatural. And while both these pictures are me, I don't see myself in the picture on the left. I see everything our culture wants me to be. And I still don't quite measure up. In the picture on the right, I am relaxed. I am content. I am celebrating all the parts of myself I've been taught to be ashamed of for my whole life. The rolls on my stomach, the cellulite dotting my thighs, my face bare and my mind free from what anybody else wants me to be. And that freedom is beautiful. More beautiful than a perfect pose or a flattering angle could ever be. It's the kind of beauty that's in us all, exactly as we are. If only we could learn how to see ourselves clearly.
На знімках видно пишні форми дівчини, якими вона дуже задоволена.
"На знімку праворуч я розслаблена і спокійна. Задоволена своїм тілом і кожною його частиною. Хоча мене все життя вчили соромитися його", – підписала Креб.
I get asked a lot what the one message I want to send to people everywhere who hate their bodies is. The answer is that I want them to know that this isn't their fault. How you feel about your body isn't your fault. You didn't ask to live in a world that profits from our insecurities. You didn't sign up to seeing thousands of images everyday of photoshopped, unattainable bodies that make your own seem so flawed. You didn't request to be bombarded with diet culture and fatphobia as soon as you were old enough to take in the world. You had no idea that our culture would make you feel so worthless for nothing more than how your body looks. You do not hold the blame for your body image issues. This is bigger than you, this is bigger than all of us. These aren't ideas that you made up yourself and decided to torment yourself with. How you feel is how you've been taught to feel. You are not the problem, the way our culture treats bodies is the problem. So please, you have to stop blaming yourself. Once you do that, then we can really get to work dismantling the bullshit, and getting you the self love you've always deserved. None of it is your fault, my love.
#DONTHATETHESHAKE TIME I definitely noticed a bit more jiggle than last time I did one of these, and you know what? I love it. Every jiggle, every wobble, every shake is a celebration of our amazing bodies in motion the special guest at the end is my sister who wanted to be introduced she's called Gemma, I work as a carer for her 4 days a week and she spends most days dancing to 90s and 00s pop music (although she's currently obsessed with Bridget Jones so that's been on repeat!). She says hi! REMEMBER anyone can do a @donthatetheshake video and embrace their jiggle! So if you feel like it put on something funky and shaaaaake – and make sure you tag #donthatetheshake so the amazing creator of the movement @yourstruelymelly can see!
Фотографії, на яких дівчина позує під час хвороби, вона також опублікувала в соцмережі. На них вона виглядає зовсім іншою людиною.
Do you wanna know the truth about gaining weight? Because I've done a whole lot of it. I used to believe that my life would end over a couple of extra pounds on the scale. I used to believe that losing weight was the most important thing in the world. I used to believe that there was no such thing as going too far, getting too thin, losing too much. Then I nearly lost my life. There were only two options left: gain weight, or die. So I gained weight. More and more. Anorexia morphed into binge eating disorder and within a year I'd gone from 65lbs lying on my death bed to 180lbs, right back to self loathing and wanting to lose weight more than anything in the world. I lost and gained hundreds of pounds over the years. I'd clawed my way back from the edge and still I believed that happiness could be found in the dropping numbers on a bathroom scale. Until I realised that no weight loss had ever made me happy. No amount of disappeared pounds had made me stop hating my body. And chasing thinness had made me lose much more than weight – I'd lost myself. Now I know that no matter how much extra jiggle might come along, nothing important about me will have changed. I'll still have the same heart, the same mind, the same passion, the same love. The scale will never be able to tell me anything about myself that truly matters. It doesn't have the power to define me – only I do. And I refuse to keep chasing that empty promise of happiness granted through restriction and self hatred. I'll take my happiness right now. We are all so worthy of it, exactly as we are. Don't be afraid of gaining weight, my love. There's a whole life for you to gain when you stop letting those numbers dictate your worth.
