Body image, Anonymous (14)

Ever since 6th grade, I've had an unhealthy relationship with my body. I wake up every morning and like the way I look because of "morning skinny" but then I go eat breakfast and It all goes away. I've tried so many different tips and tricks but it is just so difficult for me to lose weight and maintain it. I also completely lose motivation at times and say to myself that I will just "do it tomorrow" (I never do). then I fall back into my old habits of eating crappy foods and the cycle starts all over again. I feel shitty about what I eat, I workout and do a bunch of weight loss secrets that are supposed to make you lose 10 pounds in a week, then I lose motivation and give up. I don't know how to keep motivation especially when I see all the beautiful girls on tik Tok. I look at them and then think that I can never be like them. it doesn't help that all my friends are super skinny and gorgeous, especially considering im the largest in my friend group. im not even fat, im in the skinny - medium range, it just feels so much worse when im with my friends because of how they look. sometimes I think it'll just be easier to not eat, but then I find myself binging at night because im hungry and bored. I always eat when im bored because I don't know what else to do. like for gods sake why can't I just look like olivia ponton. I hope you enjoyed the story of my body dysmorphia.

I've been insecure before I even knew what the word insecure meant. I’ve hated the way I look ever since fourth grade. I would always see the little girls at school who would just look so much smaller

Thank you so much for sharing the story. It takes a lot of courage to do this. But I need to tell you the hard truth right now - this is not a healthy way to cope with your body dysmorphia. The reason you were falling back into a cycle of being unmotivated and eating unhealthy foods is because you feel bad about your body. It is all about balance. It is important to eat healthy but it is also important to eat the foods that you crave. Not letting yourself eat these foods will just end up with you binging on them. I promise you, if you just allow yourself to eat whatever you want you will end up…
