after years of eating hot pot out, i finally figured out that it's absurdly easy to make hot pot at home provided you HAVE a hot pot, and now i am counting the seconds until amazon delivers my new hot pot

recently i've been in a funk where i've been feeling horrible about my body, and this photo caught me by surprise because i look so different (i have blonde hair now and no longer wear glasses.) i found myself thinking: could that woman gain 15 lbs? absolutely! who cares??

i've struggled with eating disorders since i was a kid. i've not had a ton of luck in making progress overall, but therapy and regular exercise have helped. i just wish i could tell the "me" in this photo that she looked fine, and that there wasn't anything wrong with her.

[tw: weight] body dysmorphia is wild. was pruning old photos today and found this one from 2017, when i was 15 pounds lighter than i am now. i didn’t buy any of the outfits visible in this dressing room because i genuinely believed i was “too big” to wear them at the time.
