    it's heartbreaking when you used to start your day with 2 slices of bread to eating whatever makes you feel happy, being #BodyShaming by your own family members. I feel like wanting to restrict my food intake again. I used to be 52kg. now I'm 65kg. I am proud with my weight. I am proud how I gained my weight today. I love my body the way she is. yet it's hard to be positive when people degrading your efforts to recover. I know I'm gaining a lots of weight due to eat a lot and my medication. but idgf okay? fuk you. just because you're my family members doesn't mean I'm okay with what you doing.

    Stop telling me to love my body! #BodyShaming #BodyImage #bodyissues #BodyImageproblems

    “It’s okay to be fat” “just keep eating as long as you’re happy” “it’s okay, i’m fat too”
    Are those people really think that’s a nice thing to say?
    I used to be a skinny girl when i was a kid, my family said I can’t get fat no matter how much i eat, so they kept giving me food i love, but it all changed since my first period. Getting fat is like breathing an air but you can’t let go. I keep gaining weight since than, and my parents never tells me to go on a diet or take me to a doctor. They thought it’s normal and healthy.
    It starts when i was in high school, my body getting bigger. I joined cheerleader, dance club, even students body president, i rarely eat, but i keep gaining weights. My dad vision of a pretty girl is long hair, skinny body and no acne face. I’m the opposite. My hair was short because it’s hot, i don’t have skinny body since my body keep growing, and my face got hit by hormonal acne. So my dad keep telling me “you’re fat” “Take care of your face, it’s unappealing” and many hurtful words that i’m kinda used to it.
    In high school i won so many awards, even my teachers are proud of me, but not my dad, because i’m not the pretty girl at school. He kept remind me everyday that i’m not pretty enough, no guys want to be my boyfriend if i look like that, or I should feel ashamed with my body. Believe me it messed me up.
    I fought with my friends because I thought and i’m sure, he making fun of me because i’m fat, i cried and scream at him in the mall, it happened couple times. And we lost contact since that day.
    This insecurity grew inside me. Because my dad remind me everytime, when we eat, when i wear a clothes, when i wear a shorts, or when we meet our big family. I was never skinny enough or pretty enough. I knew i said i’m used to what he said, but sometimes it hurts, i expect that from someone else, but never my dad.
    My height is 159cm and my weight is 85kg, i look fat in every picture, so I edited my picture to look skinny, because i feel comfortable that way, everyone said i’m pretty when I’m skinny in the picture, it makes me happy but hurts at the same time, because my dad still reminding me with his own mouth i need to lose weight to be pretty, i need to stop eating when i only eat once a day.
    I met lots of new people that share about #BodyPositive and said, love your body, love yourself, but it’s not as simple as that, my insecurities live within me, don’t push me to believe that my body is okay, my body my choice, because it doesn’t feel like it, that words only hurts me more, my dad already do a good job with that, please stop, it’s nice for you to share to the young ones, but not me, i’m too broken to feel that I’m beautiful, and i hate myself enough for that. All this hormonal weight really blind me.
    If you wonder, what did my dad do to make me lose weight? Nothing, once I didn’t eat for a whole day because i feel ugly. I only wear a dress once, because my dad said i look like a whale wearing that #MentalIllness

    Unhealthy Practices to Lose Weight? #EatingDisorders #badadvice #doctordidntlisten #BodyShaming #smashedbounderies #fireddoctor

    I have had bad knees for a long time, and I am well aware that my weight is not conducive to relieving said pain. Things got really bad for me when I had to have emergency surgery to remove an infection that had been building up. I had to stay in the hospital for a month to get the infection under control, and I was not visited by the physical therapy team except for 3 times in a month, and for a total of less than 20 minutes. I had a month of physical therapy 5 days a week, and they did a great job, but my dilapidated muscles just couldn't support me without a walker. It was so painful that I barely ate, and was physically ill from the pain even if I didn't eat. It two months to finally get into a pain clinic, and then I met with a doctor who really shouldn't have a license. First appointment he did prescribe pain meds, and also gave me appetite suppressants and a referral to a bariatric clinic, even after I told him that I have an eating disorder. I'm a binge eater, and I've been working hard with a therapist who specializes in that arena. With this recovery, I don't have the appetite to binge, I barely eat as it is. I emailed her and she told me she was unequivocally against either the suppressants or the bariatric clinic. So I go back in, and when the conversation came around to the pills, I told him that on the advice of my therapist, who specializes in eating disorders, didn't think it was appropriate for my treatment. Then I told him that I'm barely eating right now, so a suppressant doesn't make a lot of sense. Now here comes the crazy part... He looks at me for a second and says "You don't look like you're starving. You can take the pills and drink water for 2-3 weeks without eating and you'll be fine". I was flabbergasted. I know that not eating sends the body into starvation mode, and when it finally gets nourishment, it stores it as fat. I told him that, and he told me not to worry about it, I had plenty of fat to feed my body. Then to add the final touch of shame, I told him I'd lost 60lbs in 3.5 months because of this, and he asked my current weight. I told him and he said there is no way I'm that light, how did I know my weight? I was so shocked that I did my urine test and walked out to my car and called my bestie. I started crying, and for the next hour and a half I couldn't stop. Then I got pissed, and I decided that I'm not going to let an ignorant doctor undo all the work I've been doing (my regular therapist was helping me on the phone). So I would rather live in pain than go to a doctor who counsels someone with an eating disorder to starve herself using appetite suppressants in order to lose weight for a knee replacement. I also left less than stellar reviews so that others don't fall into his false narrative either. Thanks for the read. #iamworthy #stopweightshame #quackquackdoc
