Body Insecurities

I was skinny that I couldn’t be insecure. WRONG ANSWER

 

Ummmm I had it in my mind just because I was skinny that I couldn’t be insecure. WRONG ANSWER. At a high peak in my life like during college, after college and when something stressful happened in my life I wouldn’t notice how much weight I lost until people would be like ‘Dang you is so skinny’. At those times I never had a scale nor did I notice the dip in my weight until people started saying that comment. I never paid attention to how much stress showed up on my body. Once I started acknowledging it, it made me insecure.  I started to hate when people said that comment because I assumed they knew I was stressed. I started to think stress meant I was sick and I didn’t like that. I’m at a point now that I’m the fittest I ever been. Y’all catch that mindset change though. I noticed when I was losing weight I didn’t know how to deal with the stress. Now that I do know how to acknowledge, handle and cope with my stress I shift my mindset to ‘I’m not sick, I’m not skinny but I’m fit’. I eat healthy, I exercise & do yoga 3x a week and I’m educated on what my body needs mentally, emotionally, physically & spiritually. That’s my healthy lifestyle and although I want to be heavier I still look good and I feel good. I learn to deal with my STRESS; Not avoid, ignore or shelter it. I’m realize the unhealthy eating habits I had , sex & birth control help me stay heavier but now that I’m not doing none of that I need to replace it will healthy gains. I’m in that process now and I couldn’t be more happier. I’m taking care of myself and I’m building the body I desire for me. That’s the true acce BBBgxu we ptance & beauty from within me. I fucks with that.
