As I read the words, “…I wish you a healthy relationship with food, exercise, and yourself today and everyday”, I suddenly felt empowered again. These last couple of weeks have been rough for me! My mother had spinal surgery on January 25th, I started the 3rd semester in my teaching internship, my son is graduating from high school soon, and the demands of 2nd year teaching middle school – all is closing in on me. I am feeling overwhelmed at best and now realize how much is truly on my plate. Speaking of plate, I am fighting hard to resist my need to feed at all times.
I have not shared this before, but I realize that I have a binge eating disorder (BED). Especially when feeling the stress of all that I have to do. So I guess, I am coming out and admitting something that I have not in the past. I am reblogging this Tangerine Wallpaper post because it made me feel better in an instant.
I did not know it was Love Your Body Month – but I like it! I will observe body positivity, self-acceptance, and eating disorder awareness this month passionately!
