che perdere peso non vuol dire essere felici

Molto spesso ci troviamo a considerare una perdita di peso come qualcosa di positivo, che ci faccia stare bene. Ma non sempre è così, o almeno non per tutti.

Allison Kimmey, una modella curvy molto popolare su Instagram, infatti, pensa proprio l'esatto contrario e ha voluto condividere il suo pensiero con i followers attraverso la pubblicaione di una foto.

I think it's fitting to do another #TransformationTuesday today. For my new friends especially because you may not know my story. I began my journey with restrictive eating, body dysmorphia, yo-yo dieting, and body image issues when I was 14. By the time I was ready to graduate college I had shrunk myself to a size 2/4. But I never saw that girl in the mirror. There was always something wrong with her, no matter how hard I worked. After my wedding in 2008 I slowly gained back all the weight and continued to berate myself for allowing that to happen to my body. I never felt confident to put myself out there because I was always worried about the way I looked and how others viewed me. The picture on the left is from 2013, 9 months after the birth of my second child. I was still subscribing to the diet culture and waiting for that even better after photo until I could truly live my life and love my body.  And then something happened. I realized I didn't know who I was. I didn't have an identity because all this time I had just been worrying about fixing my body. I had so many gifts to give and a path that God had intended for me, but instead I was wasting it telling myself and everyone else that we would all feel better if we were 10 lbs lighter. It's not true.  What I know to be true is that we'll all feel better if we start to get in tune with our true purpose here on earth and stop giving a fuck about what we are SUPPOSED to look like. So that brings me to the photo on the right, a few sizes larger and a million times happier.  The last three years were quite the journey. I cried a lot. Relationships were put on hold. I questioned myself every day. But I didn't stop uncovering the beautiful soul that I now know and love so much. It's not about your size or your weight. It's not about what you did or didn't eat. It's about how you feel about yourself, your journey on this earth and how you give back to others.  I LOVE MY BODY. I love that it is my vehicle to change the world. I love that it can inspire so many. I love that it can do harder things than I can even imagine. And I love that it is mine. Have a great day loves! And as always- I'm here via DM! Xoxo💋

Nell'immagine si vede benissimo come Allison abbia acquistato peso nel giro di qualche settimana e ciò la rende orgogliosa, rappresentando per lei addirittura uno dei momenti più felici della sua vita.

Come ha spiegato Allison nella didascalia: "Questo rappresenta uno dei momenti più felici per me. Sono più sicura di me stessa, amo il mio corpo e ho smesso di voler assomigliare per forza a qualche modella".

{Rejection breeds Obsession}  I heard that and it really struck me. The context was referring to feeling rejection from someone and hence beginning the obsession of receiving love from that person who rejected you. . . . But what if that person that rejected you...was yourself? And what if the obsession with hating your body and yourself comes from the very act of rejecting yourself as you are.  That the non accepting nature of anything that's not "perfect" leads us to obsess about the number on the scale, the asymmetry in our faces or breasts, the skin that is tattered from adolescent and worn from age, the stretch marks, the: fill in the _________. . . . Then wouldn't the answer be to accept oneself for who you are. And that in turn, the obsession would dissolve and love would enter. And you would be free...to just do you. Xoxo Allie

Una tappa importante per lei che ha combattuto contro il proprio corpo da quando aveva 14 anni: "Quando era un'adolescente ho iniziato il mio percorso di dimagrimento: non mi sono mai sentita fiduciosa e a mio agio con il mio corpo. Non volevo mostrarmi perchè ero sempre preoccupata per il mondo in cui mi avrebbero vista gli altri. Ora questo problema è superato".

Una vera e propria crisi di identità per Allison: "Ad un certo punto non sapevo più chi fossi, non avevo una vera identità perchè aveva sprecato tantissimo tempo a voler modificare il mio corpo. Ora amo il mio corpo: mi piace perchè può diventare il veicolo per cambiare il mondo e può ispirare tante persone. Mi piace perchè è mio".

I'm coming to you with a mantra for your day; say it before bed, and then again in the morning and whenever you feel self doubt: Holding onto the negative beliefs about myself and my body are only harming me, and everyone else around me. I acknowledge these thoughts as false and am committed to enjoying my life fully without them. I am awesome. I am worthy. I am open to new possibilities. I am light and I am love. You'll probably feel silly at first, at least I did. But the more times you say positive affirming things to yourself, the more likely you are to eventually believe it, and manifest it! Give it a try, what do you have to lose?  Sending love! Just do you babes! Xoxo Allie
