TW: Eating Disorder
My name is Kassidy. This is a photo I’ve never shared til now. I took it while I was in one of my hospital stays. It’s frightening to think at the time I thought I was fat. I was weak, and hopeless. I hated myself. And had convinced myself that healthy was ugly. Now, 2 years, 40 pounds later. I AM healthy. And happier than ever. I have my bad days, like anyone, but my eating disorder barely plays even the smallest, teeniest role in my life anymore. I can eat without guilt, I can have fun while I go shopping, and I couldnt give a fuck less about sizes or calories, because I’ve made the choice to be happy and live life to the fullest. Fighting to get to this point wasnt easy. But, it’s been SO SO worth it. I wish to spread hope I want people to know how WORTHWHILE recovery really is. I honestly love myself more than I EVER have! And there are wonderful times where lately i can look into a mirror and say “DAMN, SHE’S HOT!” and MEAN IT! I never in a million years thought I could say that, with a straight face! But it’s possible. Never give up. And remember you’re beautiful <3
You are so much more beautiful afterwards(: You look like Ashley Tisdale!
I started this Journey at 450lbs, I was only 22 years old and couldnt barely walk or do much of anything, I have lost 130lbs so far and I am determined to get at least 175 more lbs off in the next 2 years. I am able to do so many more things and I go to the gym 5 days a week now and see a Dietitian and Nutritionist. I know I’m not as small as these other girls that post but I have worked my ass off to get to where I want to be! If I can do it, ANYONE can!
HEYYY look its meeeee!! So proud of myself!
You are a goddess and your body is a temple. Treat it as such :) ❤
i just found some more than unflattering pictures of myself on facebook, but fortunately those make great before pictures. the left is from my high school graduation party in may of 2010. i began my journey in january 2011, and the right picture is from december 2012. this was done healthily, of course, and i have been living a healthy lifestyle for 2 years now and working on my personal training certification.
My mom has some crazy unflattering pictures of me from when I was incredibly over weight. Looking at these pictures, I feel like my highest weight might have been somewhere in the 200s. But now I am 120-ish and couldn’t be happier or more proud of myself. It pains me to look at these old pictures but it just shows how far I have come. The old pictures are from 2008-2009.
