This woman spoke about how she had been visiting her sister in Juba when the fighting broke out, and had been unable to return home. To make matters worse, she had left her older children behind in her village, because she thought it would just be a short trip. She had not seen them in nearly a year. As I was interviewing her, she kept a very resigned, unsmiling, faraway look on her face, which can be seen in the previous post. But when we finished, my translator asked her what village she was from. When she told him, he pulled out his phone. “I’ve just been to your hometown on an aid mission,” he said, “I can show you photos.” As he scrolled through photos of her village, her expression suddenly changed.(Tongping Internally Displaced Persons Site, Juba, South Sudan)

You do not choose your recovered weight, shape, or dress size.

That’s the whole point.

You let go of the ‘control’, and let your body maintain its own optimal size (which it is perfectly capable of, without restriction/calorie counting/workouts ‘just in case’).

The only thing better than a normal selfie is a sephia selfie… Hope everyone is having a lovely Tuesday & second day of September! I should probably get started on some HW because I have a very busy night ahead of me lol but I love ya’ll and are always here for you if ya need me!!

Quick Reminder:

Weight loss is a side effect of anorexia. It is not the sole problem.

Weight gain is a side effect of recovery. It is not the sole solution.

Eating disorders are mental illnesses, not weight disorders.

Remember that and you’ll be just fine ;)
