I'm happy to say that as of a few days ago, I'm officially in remission for binge eating disorder πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰ BED is the most common eating disorder in the US, affecting about 3.5% of women and 2% of men, over three times as common as bulimia and anorexia combined! But we don't talk about BED so it's often stigmatized or ignored, making it even harder for those afflicted to seek treatment. . Despite years of nutritionists and weight loss programs, I've struggled with binge eating my entire life and I was able to start recovering within less than a month of therapy, a testament to changing how we view health and weight loss. We need to make it our collective goal to raise awareness for BED and to look beyond people's weights when providing them with healthcare. . When I was 120 pounds lighter in high school, I hated my body and starved myself during the day so I could binge at night. I cringed when I looked at pictures of myself and even at my thinnest, I truly thought that I was disgusting. Nothing I did was ever good enough and I convinced myself that I would be happy if I could just lose a little more weight. But as long as I was thin, no one really seemed to care whether or not I was healthy. Extreme dieting and an obsessive desire to be thin are so normalized that neither I nor the people around me ever realized I had a problem. . So please, remember that eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes, and those afflicted with BED deserve the same love and respect afforded to those struggling with bulimia or anorexia. If you have any questions or just want to learn more about BED, feel free to comment or send me a message! I truly believe that BED afflicts so many people and we should do all we can to destigmatize eating disorders in all their forms.

2/3 Five days before this shoot I boarded my flight to LA feeling lightheaded, asked the stranger next to me for some water and fainted before he could hand it to me :/ paramedics helped me off the plane & rescheduled my flight for the next day once I explained my messy medical situation. I made it to LA knowing the regular pain & anxiety levels I experience would inevitably increase because of stress. I had 3wks of vacation coming up where I'd be on planes/Uber's/Amtraks alone, meeting new people/photographers, adventuring around LA/SLO/SD, etc. I couldn't confidently expect my body & mind to properly contribute everyday. I didn't want to make too many plans or cancel anything, I feared being a burden on anyone if/when my health acted up. I also didn't want my medical situation to be one of the first topics when meeting new people. I had also lost all of my calendar/pictures/notes from my phone 2 days prior because of a glitch in the phone store πŸ˜“ I rested a lot & knew I had to keep a positive mindset and listen to my body in order to feel energetic for photo shoots especially. The second shoot I did was with @nathanielgerdes & on one of my weakest days of the trip. Brain fog was out of control, joints were on some extra painful/wobbly bullshit, my mind would go blank when the camera was pointed at me & I worried my facial expressions would reflect that. Social anxiety wasn't there, but focus was scarce because of in-and-out headaches, nausea, and stomach cramps (the cramps weren't from In N Out I promise!!). Fortunately, it's nearly impossible to be in a bad mood around Nathaniel since he's the master of having a good time & a positive perspective. I'm so thankful I got to spend a day shooting with him even if I didn't feel like my complete self & that these pictures are so beautiful!! Chronic pain & anxiety are terrible yet fascinating diseases, I feel cursed yet fortunate to struggle with them both. If I didn't decide on that compromise with them I wouldn't be here today, and I thank them for allowing me to not take for granted all my experience & people I share them with despite how shitty I may feel at the time ✨. πŸ“Έ: @nathanielgerdes . πŸ‘™: @forever21

These eyes have seen a lot in 29 years. They've seen places all over the world of luxury and poverty. They've seen people of every age, race, color and walk of life. They've seen joy and sorrow, hatred and love. Sometimes, it's easy to get lost in the negativity we see in the world and it brings us down, away from our dreams and our true selves. Actively choosing to keep positivity in your life is an important part of mental health. These eyes have seen both negatives and positives in every aspect of life but my head and my heart choose to focus on the positive. πŸ’–πŸ’–πŸ’– #mybodymonday #bodypositive #loveyourself #fitgirl @nonairbrushedme @fitgirlsguide

Feeling like caca 😷🀒 I'm thinking it's a little stomach bug πŸ‘ŽπŸ» But for now I'm taking it easy, with a little extra TLC time πŸ›€

Tattoo says: Once I was beautiful. Now I am myself. . I get the same reaction every time someone reads it. They say, β€œBut you’re still beautiful!” . I appreciate the compliment but that’s not what the tattoo means to me. . It’s from a poem by Anne Sexton. To me, it’s a social commentary. . I used to try to change myself to fit in with what I thought was beautiful. I used to crave characteristics that I thought were attractive. . I’ve spent my whole life trying to be something or someone else. . I’m turning 28 next month and I’m finally starting to live MY life as me. Just me. No masks. No facade. Just me living my life just how I want it. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #tattoo #tattoos #scripttattoo #girlswithtattoos #script #poem #selflove #selfcare #selfloveisthebestlove #bodypositive #bodypositivity #loveyourself #positivevibes #positivethinking #writer #greek #greekgirl #bignose #nosering #selfie #beauty #beautiful #nonairbrushedme #effyourbeautystandards #gay #lesbian

It took me a long time, but I’m finally back to a new routine, new studio and new paintings! πŸ˜ƒ And I’m so excited about this new one! Seriously, how cute is this lady? @curvycottoncandymane is the inspiration behind this painting and one of the fiercest ladies with a really empowering message. Need I say more? Stay tune for new pics of the progress πŸ˜‰ I have a feeling it’s going to turn out really good. . P.S.: Want your own custom painting? Click the link in the profile and get yours now.

at what weight does someone lose the right to be treated with respect and decency? what size does my clothing label need to say in order for me to be deemed a respectable human being? one worthy of kindness and respect? At what point does my existence become shrinkable to one aspect of my being? I ask these questions because our size does not determine our worth. The number on our clothing tags does not determine whether we are someone worthy of respect, worthy of loving. I ask these questions because we are told from when we are able to hear it that thinness is our most desirable quality. that thinness is the key to being happy, to being loved, to being fuckable, to being all these things that being fat could not possibly give us. We are told that being fat is to be undesirable. being fat is to be someone who is unhappy, someone who will never find love. to be fat is to always be someone looking for change, working on themselves to be thinner. and if they're not we demonise them, because how could they possibly be happy? love themselves? wouldn't that mean all the things we've been told are untrue? what is really the key to happiness if not thinness? to love ourselves with our whole body. to love ourselves with our whole mind. to love ourselves. That is love. it is real. it is possible. i am talking out of privilege, i know. i am white, and to be white is to be heard. I am a cisgender woman. i am also fat. i am also disabled. our different intersections lead us to see the world differently. learning to love myself will be a different experience to that of a black person, of a trans person. but we are all worthy, all valuable, and all fucking valid.

You know what's incredible of moving forward? Sometimes, you get to look back. When I went shopping for my bathing suit last summer I was only imagining what my vacation in Costa Rica was going to be like. What did it end up being like? AMAZING! The only way for me to figure that out is to make actual moves and do the things my heart calls me to do. The fear bs just holds us back. Does nothing to move us closer to our goals. So whatever thing you've been putting off, DO IT! Right meow. Create the memories. Learn from the experiences. Live your passions. Enjoy your moments. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™ #bemorethanabody #mondaymotivation #nonairbrushedme #mombod #bikinibod #bodypositive #memoriestolastalifetime #puravida #stretchmarks #scars #looseskin #summervacation

Mermaid thighs on fleek πŸ˜† Don't like these thighs? This cellulite? What about this belly? These arms? Then scroll on because I'm not here for your approval! I'm to normalize the movement of bodies. All bodies move. All bodies shake, jiggle and wiggle. Some more than others and that is OKAY! Wiggle your jiggle! #wiggleyourjiggle #donthatetheshake #makeyourownsparkle πŸ“· @tarzan802 β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #thisbody #mermaidthighs #visiblyplussize #effyourbeautystandards #bigandblunt #body4me #nonairbrushedme #alternativecurves #effyourbodystandards #whatfatgirlsactuallywear #andigetdressed #skorchmagazine #queensizemagazine #beautyoverstandards #volup2isdiversity #celebratemysize #lanebryant #labelcurv #fatgirlscan #fatgirlsbewinning #fatacceptance #bodypos #bodyposi #styleandcurve #bodypositivebabe

Hey! For those of you who don't know, I'm Michelle Elman and when I found my place in body positivity on my other account @scarrednotscared no one was talking about scars so in 2015 I launched my own campaign #scarrednotscared . Every year since I have done a project for the campaign and this year, my third instalment is here! It's a spoken word poem and it would mean the world if you clicked the link in the bio and give it a watch and please SHARE SHARE SHARE. #scarrednotscared πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½

β€’β€’ d a y β€’ o n e β€’β€’ Today I decided to take the Body Confidence 7 day challenge! What inspires you to be more body confident? I believe confidence comes once you have self acceptance! Loving the skin you are in, embracing who you are & believing in yourself. Once you begin loving what you see in the mirror, your confidence will blossom! Well this was the case for me. The sexiest thing any woman can have is a smile led by confidence. Oh and red lipstick... #bocoinstachallenge #imperfection #bodyconfidence @carla_conlin #mua @makeupbynicola
