Firstly, let us say that it takes courage to reach out and talk about something as personal as this. We want you to know that you’re not alone in feeling this way, and we’re here to listen and support you through whatever you’re going through.
Feeling conflicted about your body and your eating habits can be really tough, especially when you’re receiving mixed messages from others. Whether someone says you’re “fat” or “skinny,” what matters most is how you feel about yourself. Your worth isn’t determined by your size or shape.
Changing eating habits can be challenging, but it’s absolutely possible. It’s important to approach it with kindness and patience towards yourself. Instead of focusing on restricting food, try to focus on nourishing your body with foods that make you feel good and energised. Remember that it’s ok to enjoy treats in moderation too.
