I posted this a while ago but deleted it because I was self concious. But I want to be proud of how far I’ve come. Both of these bodies are normally healthy bodies. But only one is a strong body. On the left, I was in the pits of self loathing. I was weak, with very little fitness and a terrible diet. Somewhere in between these two photos, I was underweight and sick and killing myself with a disease I’m still not sure I’ve fully escaped, but one which I’ve overpowered. I have no photos of myself from that time and I do not wish to see my dull eyes pointy ribs. On the right, I am a runner. I am stronger and faster than I’ve ever been before, and I’m still getting stronger and faster today. Here’s the kicker: I weigh 3 pounds less on the right than on the left. THREE. Not fifteen or twenty. 3. It’s not about weight loss. It’s about strength. It’s about a healthy state of mind. I should have been perfectly happy with my perfectly fine body of 2 years ago, but I am thankful for the hell I went through that led me on the path to finding running- my truest love and deepest passion.
