Your Eating Disorder Doesnt Have to be Mine
1 year ago · 1 · weight, +1
I gained 25 pounds over the past year and went from a small to a medium. At first I was disappointed by my weight gain which I noticed more because none of my clothes fit and I felt very large. My family encouraged me to exercise and "just eat better". I ended up losing 10 pounds just by walking a bit more and now I've come to accept my new size and even think the new curves are quite nice. My family on the other hand, continues to make comments about my body and my new weight. They act like I'm obese when I am most certainly not. The worst is my sister who very clearly has body dysmorphia and calls herself fat despite being a size 0. She shames me for eating and her comments about her own weight make me feel like a million pounds in comparison. At times it feels like she resents me for trying to be more comfortable in my skin rather than cutting calories and starving myself. Most recently she told me that I needed to take new dating profile pictures because I have photos from when I was 15 pounds lighter and that men are expecting me to look different and that might be putting them off. I know it's just a projection of her own issues with weight and food but I'm getting very tired of being made to feel like something is wrong with me especially when I find I dont really look or feel any different.

I have lost a lot of weight and I already know it’s because of the break up I’m going through. I barely ate anything and now when I do eat I get full really...
I dislike the way i look and my weight now. It's hard to feel confident. haven't really hated myself for a long time now but moms surely know how to make you ha...
I think you should feel confident in your curves. Don’t listen to your sister and if you are writing this because you do feel in some way insecure don’t, guys like curves.Reply
