tw // weight / body image talk how do i deal with accepting my daily calorie intake is OK? My metabolism is extremely slow, but calorie wise, i do not overeat. Today i had 2 crumpets, a glass of orange juice, some biscuits, 3 pieces of scampi, mushy peas, a handful of chips, and an orange with some lotus biscuits. That’s all i’ve eaten today and i feel like i have massively over indulged. I’m 5ft4 and slightly on the plump side but i feel disgusting. My relationship with food is extremely tenuous. And i don’t know how to cope with it. Right now i feel really bloated and disgustingly fat. It’s just exhausting being at constant war with your body. My boyfriend has absolutely 0 issues with the way i look but i just feel so gross and it’s hard for me to feel sexy or confident. It’s my issue entirely. How can i go about feeling better about this?? :( thanks everyone.

i recommend following brittanilancester on tik tok and instagram, she helped my build a better relationship with food. i would recommend intuitive eating, so eating what your body craves whenever it craves it as you’re nourishing your body in your own personalised way! i tend to remind myself that food is good and that it helps my body function! my body is satisfied and it’s working and that’s what i need! i also tend to look in the mirror whilst i get changed and remind myself that i am beautiful. i even got a mirror sticker from shein saying “you look good” as an additional reminder. i also follow body positive accounts with girls that are a similar size to me to help me appreciate my body more! :)

Following girls who are more on the curvy side helped me a lot to realize that there’s no “perfect body”. I read the nice comments to them and I imagine they’re saying it to me as we have similar bodies. Also, if you want to be able to appreciate the food you eat without feeling guilty, maybe go on a nice walk during the day. It’ll help you feel better and you’ll feel like you “deserve” the food you’re eating. Obviously you deserve it no matter what but it can help mentally. Intuitive eating is also better than counting calories, your body is amazing at telling you when its thirsty or hungry. Are you seeing a therapist about this?

@nikeyxo Thank u! I will look into her. I follow a couple of body posi accounts on instagram and it has definitely helped me accept that even those who look “perfect” on insta have rolls and hip dips. I’ll try look into intuitive eating as well :)
