Topic: Wellness Wednesday
This post is about how I realised that I have become a really strong person today. Four years ago, I was anorexic. I was just 45kg, and yet I swam for two hours daily and ate 650kcal calories per day. At that point, I was obsessed with the numbers on the scale. I would cry each day the scale didn’t show a number that was lower than the day before.
I was so stressed and desperate that at some point I wanted to cut my hair just so the scale would show me a smaller number, even though I loved my hair so much.
But that is in the past. Today, I came home from school and remembered these things. And when I looked at myself in the mirror, staring at my beautiful hair, I felt so strong. It might seem silly to you, but my hair reminded me that I went through so much and that I won most of the battles.
