Usually before and after pictures are of people losing weight, but for me the 50+ pounds I’ve gained over the past 4 years are a personal triumph. Recovering from an eating disorder is a long road, but I’ve learned to value my life and my body and now I’m the healthiest (physically and mentally) I’ve ever been. I used to blackout after jogging half a mile, but just this passed weekend I hiked 12 miles without issue. Seeing all the incredible things my body can do through yoga, trail running, and rugby has really helped me finally love myself no matter what size.

- i know people are kicking off about her using the phrase “skinny bitches” but she does follow it up with "no, i’m just playing i know you think you’re fat / but i’m here to tell you that / every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top" she’s taken an insult commonly given to slim women and basically a said so what if you are skinny/skinny but you think you’re fat, YOU’RE STILL PERFECT
- i’ve seen shit loads of people saying it makes them feel more confident, and slim women get a ton of media reinforcing the idea that their body is perfect anyway
- IT’S CATCHY AS FUCK
So I didn’t watch it the first time but HOLY SHIT this is awesome
