Happy 5-Month “KICKING-ANOREXIA-RECOVERY-IN-THE-BUTT” Anniversary To Me!!!
Happy 5-Month “KICKING-ANOREXIA-RECOVERY-IN-THE-BUTT” anniversary to me!
In honour of this FREAKING MILESTONE, I’m about to go on a rant (Did you even have a doubt?).
As I’ve reiterated often, recovery is a PROCESS that needs to be tackled head strong & as a whole every single second of every single day.
BUT, one thing that I have grown (both physically & mentally, LET’S BE HONEST) to do throughout this process is look at every month as:
A NEW BEGINNING.
A NEW PRIVILEGE.
A NEW ACCOMPLISHMENT.
& Most of all, A NEW CHALLENGE.
A new beginning in the sense that I’ve freed myself from & eliminated all the negativity surrounding me & trying to bring me down because I was apparently “too focused” on GETTING MY LIFE BACK.
& I could not be happier to have mustered up the strength to do so because ever since, my anxiety has calmed down so much & I literally feel like a NEW ME, well rather, LIKE THE OLD ME!
A new privilege in the sense that now that I’ve reached my almost-goal-weight, I’m allowed to go back to the gym, work out & tone this body that has been nourished AF & no longer looks skeletal, skimpy & frail.
A new accomplishment in the sense that I’ve made it through another month of ups & downs, laughs & cries, bloating, feeling like complete crap but also, feeling on top of the world, cooking & baking, meal prepping, weight fluctuations, therapy & doctors appointments, grocery runs, research upon research, early morning wake-ups & blogging & vlogging away to let you munchkins in on what it’s like in the day of a life of a girl recovering from anorexia!
& A NEW CHALLENGE in the sense that now it’s time to tackle MONTH #6 & DO ALL OF THIS ALL OVER AGAIN!
& My loves, I’ve said it once; I’ve said it twice & I WILL SAY IT AGAIN…
I WOULDN’T HAVE IT ANY OTHER WAY!
5 months in & I’m PROUD AF TO SAY THAT:
THE OLD KELLY IS BACK
That those who tried to stop her from coming back are GONE
That ANOREXIA JUST LOST ANOTHER CULPRIT!
Who’s with me to keep her losing streak going?
WE CAN DO THIS, MY LOVES, NO MATTER WHAT YOU ARE BATTLING, FIGHTING, STRUGGLING OR COPING WITH.
You are strong.
You are beautiful.
You are WORTH IT.
YOU ARE AMAZING!
AND OF COURSE, all this progress NEEDS to be DOCUMENTED. I mean, have you met me?!
HOW’S THAT FOR PROGRESS?!
