Guest Site About Body Image and Eating Disorders
Body Image and Eating Disorders – I can’t tell you how my body image problems started, but t here are three girls in my family, all with severe eating disorders. Most of our challenges are actually under control, but I know that being ultra skinny stays an important, if unattainable, goal for my sisters. I spent years on a roller coaster of distinct diet and exercise plans, with varied outcomes. The irony is that I never even fell outside of a healthy weight range. I just did not like what I saw in the mirror, and I did not enjoy how I felt.
Then I met a nudist. This guy was completely free from body shame. True, he had an enviable physique. However, it did not look like he was slightly exhibitionist, simply detached from any dressing table seeing how he looked to others. His priority was just put on how he felt, physically and emotionally. The first time I saw him wandering around nude, I was totally shocked. I’d spent years attempting to prevent not just nudity, but also occasions when swimwear and even shorts would be the estimated apparel. Here he was, buck nude, like it was nothing. He had moles, scars, and all types of marks that individuals spend time, money and angst attempting to cover. His approach on that was the same, of course. Those matters had always been there. Who was he to conclude they were unattractive? Spending time with someone who was not at all body conscious was incredibly liberating.
Body Image and Eating Disorders
We became a couple, and finally married. Our first flats were deliberately not ground-level places, because we did not want to disturb the neighbors with flashing. Just being around someone with this free perspective, these balanced precedence, allowed me to go in the girl hiding in the dark, to finally feeling normal. This isn’t a case of finding oneself in someone else. It is a fortuitous example of having a great role model to show me that all bodies are different, and their attributes don’t become good or bad until someone labels . After years of warped eating patterns and dreading the return of summer weather and summer clothes, life with Mr. Nudist permitted me to accept myself. Decades later, the love handles are appearing but our approach toward caring for ourselves and each other stays unchanged. I wish everyone with body problems precisely the same good fortune.
