Τα περιττά της κιλά της δίνουν την αυτοπεποίθηση που ποτέ δεν είχε
Ζύγιζε 27 κιλά και ήταν δυστυχισμένη

Η Megan Jaynne Crabbe πέρασε από την ανορεξία στην υγιεινή ζωή.
Όταν ήταν έφηβη ζύγιζε μόλις 27 κιλά, και παρλ' αυτά, δεν ήταν ποτέ ευχαριστημένη με το βάρος της.
Σήμερα η νεαρή δε νιώθει καμία ντροπή για την εμφάνιση της και προσπαθεί να δείξει στον κόσμο μέσα από το λογαριασμό της στο Instagram ότι δεν υπάρχει καμία γυναίκα που να μην είναι όμορφη και πως απλώς όλα είναι στο μυαλό του καθενός.
" Είμαι απλώς ένα κορίτσι 23 ετών, που στέκεται ενάντια σε έναν κόσμο που μας διδάσκει να μισούμε τον εαυτό μας. Λέω πως πρέπει να αγαπάμε τον εαυτό μας, ακριβώς όπως είμαστε, και ότι αξίζει να βλέπουν σε μας αυτό που πραγματικά έχουμε μέσα μας" λέει.
Is summer here yet?! 😭🌸 best believe I'm busting out the crop tops AS SOON AS the sunshine arrives! 🌞 Fun fact: these are officially the largest size jeans I own, and guess what? The number on the label has absolutely zero effect on how I feel while wearing them! If you're still squishing yourself into uncomfortable clothes because you don't wanna buy the next size up - I swear it'll be worth it. Your comfort is important, and the actual number doesn't matter one bit 😘💜💙💚🌈🌞 P.s. jeans are from New Look, everything else is super old! ✨ P.p.s. how cute is that little side roll omg 🐼
"Wait so you just decided to RUIN your body?" Nah, I just stopped torturing myself every day for not fitting an image I was never supposed to be. · "But you look so much healthier to me before." That's funny, you looked so much more intelligent to me before you equated health with weight and forgot that mental health is health too. · "You could have stayed the same and loved your body, you didn't need to get fat." I could have stayed the same and spiralled back into the eating disorder that almost killed me when I was 15. I could have kept starving myself and obsessively working out for hours everyday but it never would have lead me to self love. No matter how much weight I lost there was always still something to hate. And sure, people don't NEED to gain weight to find their self love, this is just what my body needed to do to match up to my mental freedom. THIS IS MY HAPPY BODY. · "But surely you can't be happy looking like that now, I could never be happy in that body." I didn't think I could either, but as it turns out, happiness isn't a size. And I wasted far too many years believing that it was. Now I'm not going to stop letting people know that they deserve happiness exactly as they are. They deserve to live now, not 10 pounds from now. They deserve that mental freedom. So to every person reading this: I hope you get your freedom too, however it might look. I'll be cheering you on every step of the way. 💜💙💚🌈🌞 P.s. these are all comments I received on my last before/after picture, luckily for me, they just make me want to keep going even more 👊
On the left is me 2 1/2 years ago, just before I found body positivity, and on the right is me today. You'll probably notice the most obvious thing I've gained between these two pictures: weight. But there are so many other things I've gained as well. I've gained mental freedom. I've gained self love. I've gained my life back after so many years of believing that I wasn't worthy of living it because of how my body looked. I know the world wants you to believe that the less you weigh the happier you'll be. I know I'm supposed to feel ashamed of this transformation. I'm supposed to vow to lose the weight, I'm supposed to spend my life chasing the body on the left and buying into the idea that I'll be more valuable once I get there. But I'm not going to do that. Instead I'm going to tell you what I learnt from all those wasted years chasing washboard abs and dropping numbers on the scale: happiness is not a size. Weight loss does not cure self hatred. Mental health matters more than a dress size does. And we are all so worthy of self love exactly as we are. It's time we took a stand and refused to keep hurting ourselves in the pursuit of a 'perfect' body that doesn't even exist. It's time for us to realise that we're already good enough. It's time for us to take our power back. 💜💙💚🌈🌞
