Ever since I can remember, I have always hated my body. Although I was never overweight in the slightest, I still always wanted to be skinnier and skinnier. The skinniest. I can still remember the numerous days in high school that I spent stressing about my body, obsessively counting calories and restricting food. I still remember feeling too ashamed to eat in front of my friends. And I even remember how uncomfortable I felt wearing a swimsuit in my first swimming class in middle school. As you can see, from a very young age I had a negative relationship with my body as I viewed it in a extremely distorted light.
Read my next upcoming post for some of the steps I have taken in order to change my relationship with my body from a negative to a positive one.
