Its been an exciting few weeks for me, we have had all our new stock come in and I have been busy getting everything ready to launch next week. We have also got a new van for Bear, I am calling it the “Bearmobile”, Nell isn’t so keen. It’s bright orange and amazing. It’s been a little while since I spoke about my mental health, this is mostly because I have been in a really good place, however I noticed something last week which I thought I would share on here.
I have always had trouble with my weight and have used food as a way of self harming, whether that be binge eating, or starving myself. For as long as I can remember, it has been rare that I have been in a balanced place with eating. There are many reasons for this, but one is definitely body dysmorphia. This has become particularly obvious recently when looking through some old photos, I can remember at the time thinking that I was very overweight, I really wasn’t. This realisation has encouraged me to be kinder to myself when it comes to food. This attitude change has meant that my binges are becoming a rarity and I don’t feel the need to starve myself. I am exercising more and feeling a lot healthier.
