Happy 85th Birthday to my Opa 👴🏻🎂♥️
I absolutely love my grandparents, however difficult they find it to understand my eating disorder.
Our generation gap has seen us grow up in completely different demographics and lead very different lives, making it difficult for us to comprehend the perspective of one another. Having lived in Germany during the war, where food was very scarce and therefore sacred to them, they now take pride in being able to provide their family and loved ones with generous amounts of food 🙌🏻🥨🧀🍗🍰 For me, struggling with an eating disorder which meant I would often turn down their offers for rich sweets and delectables, was not only hard on me but also them. They couldn’t understand why they couldn’t satisfy me with their offerings and would often take my decline as personal rejection 💔 As much as both me and my mum have tried to explain that my sickness makes me fearful of eating, they struggle to grasp the very concept and rather see it as an ungrateful act and misusing my food privilege. Sharing meals with them since being in recovery can be really challenging for me, because I have no means of control over the comments I may receive. Anything from coaxing me to “just eat more”, telling me I’m looking better with more weight on and making a deal about what I have eaten - it often leaves me extremely triggered and depressed.....
I try to remind myself that their actions are due to ignorance and are MEANT as a sign of love. This still doesn’t always make it easier to deal with the unwanted attention towards my weight or eating, but it helps me recognise that their misinterpretation is not their own fault, but rather a result of their own experience with food deprivation. What it shows me is that early life circumstances do have the power to influence us for the rest of our lives, if we allow it. Mildly or severely. Consciously or subconsciously.
Despite our differences, there are no two people I admire more than my Opa and Oma, for their strength, sacrifice and perseverance during their lives 💪🏻 I hope that I can also make them proud of what they get to witness of mine #grandparentslove

Can we just talk about this?
FIRST TWO:the photo on the left was 2015 shortly after choosing recovery from my ED and the right was taken at the beginning of 2018.
SECOND TWO: left was way before I saw I was sick and the right was just today.

Charcoal drawing from my high school portfolio
"Am I Beautiful Yet?", Charcoal, 2015, 19"x26"

In the search to be physically perfect, women (and some men) try so many things that are destructive in physically, mentally and/or emotionally in order to fit society's standards and turn into something disgusting/not human, and can't see their mistakes until it's too late and completely irreversible.

• P r o g r e s s • 4 weeks difference 🙌🏻
Freddo frogs every night ☑️🐸 D i d• Y o u • K n o w ❓❕❓❕ Any guilt about food, shame about the body, or judgment about health are considered stressors by the brain and are immediately transduced into their electrochemical equivalents in the body. You could eat the healthiest meal on the planet, but if you’re thinking toxic thoughts the digestion of your food goes down and your fat storage metabolism can go up. Likewise, you could be eating a nutritionally challenged meal, but if your head and heart are in the right place, the nutritive power of your food will be increased.

Your lips and lashes called—they want attention. Give them a new nightly ritual. Grow longer stronger healthier lashes while you sleep! Get that pout hydrated, smooth, and plump so you’re ready to go en la mañana! If you’re going to take someone to bed—take OHSO. Apply and let it work it’s magic overnight. Plus, the sleepy oils inside these two products will help you slip into your dreams easily—take THAT insomnia. Go to bed knowing that when you wake, you’ll be healthier, happier, and absolutely flawless. .

I remember that I never worn jeans when I was a teenager because I didn't want to show the shape of my hips and some people actually made fun of it or told me to make it small (how rude!). I had a huge complex about it. I understood as even a kid it was unusual for a Japanese girl. Luckily, I learned so many kinds of beauty exist in this world as I traveled to many places. I can wear what I want to now and am learning the way of self acceptance. I really hope this kind of movement will be big and one of the mainstreams here in Japan so that many of the girls/women don't have to struggle with what people think about their bodies.
日本でももっといろんな形の美しさが認められるようになればいいな!! #bodyimage #bodypositivity #everybodyisbeautiful #body #positiveliving #beauty #aerie #selfacceptance #yourself #believeinyourself
Felt like a dream walking these darlings today: hence the closed eyes.

I love animals! Growing up as a farm girl and then moving to the city was hard! So love when friends invite me out for a doggie walk @flynn_juan
I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend and have an awesome week ahead !

It’s called life. Don’t forget to live it. ✌🏽☀️🌊💕🌴

Don’t forget to live it...
• at any size
• with abs or no abs
• with or without cellulite
• even if your body isn’t socially accepted
• even if your body is socially accepted but you still feel like shit about it

We only get one life and one body. Let’s choose to live it to its fullest and not hate the body we’re living it in! We’ve done that enough already...

PS: although I fully acknowledge that I have thin privilege, and always have, I used to absolutely loathe my body, picking apart every imperfection. Never in my wildest dreams would I feel confident enough to wear a bikini to the beach without “perfect abs”, let alone post a photo on social media that showcases my squishy belly (see photo 3!) but after many years of learning and practicing to embrace my body unconditionally, I feel so damn good posting this photo! This is what’s REAL. This is what body acceptance is all about: freedom to be okay with yourself RIGHT NOW, no matter what you look like. It’s a beautiful thing and you can attain it in ANY body! 💕 (also, how gorgeous is Aruba?! I know you can only see a sliver of water but it’s so blue!! #Grateful that I got to enjoy this trip without body image worries 🙏🏽)

Jennifer Lawrence knows what's up. You're never going to be happy with your body if you focus on what other people say. Embrace your own body and embrace imperfection. A healthy body is a happy body.
