الشابة الأمريكية بروك سبينسر تدير حساب إنستجرام ناجح يخص جسمها، والتغيير الذي طرأ عليه بعدما قررت ترك حياة كمال الأجسام القاسية والتمتع بجسمها كما هو. ويحظى الحساب الذي يشجع البنات على محبة أجسامهن كما هي، وذلك بعد تجربة ذاتية، على متابعة كبيرة.
وعن تجربتها تقول إنها عندما كانت في حمى كمال الأجسام أصبحت تطور مشاكل نفسية وجسدية، وحرمت نفسها من ملذات الحياة المتعلقة بالطعام. والآن بعدما تخلت عن السعي المضني وراء الجسم المثالي، وأضافت إلى جسمها 12 كيلوغرام، تقول سبينسر إنها راضية وتستمتع بالحياة. وهي لا تبالي كثيرا مظهرها الخارجي.
Being vulnerable on my social media is slowly becoming a bit easier ???????? What I've learned in the past couple years is that regardless of what my body looks like I am the exact same person. Regardless of what my body looks like my friends & family still love me ❤ I was terrified to gain weight in fear that my family would make comments about how "fat" I got (though my family would never in a million years say this ????) or that others would say I had let myself go and I failed. Why did I correlate weight gain with failure? ???? I've come a long way since then and I can see now that I didn't anything but fail. ❤I have fallen more in love with my body. ❤I am healthier than I used to be. ❤My disordered eating habits have nearly diminished. Weight gain does NOT equal failure. In a society that tells us that we are undesirable unless we have a certain body type this is hard to remember. This is why I post these pictures and this is why it is slowly getting easier because even if I am able to help at least one person even a tiny bit, I will be happy ???????? #yearofselflove #embracethesquish #effyourbeautystandards
Our stomachs can look so different depending on how we're sitting/laying/standing, our posture, how much we just ate, if we're flexed or not, and depending on how loose/tight your bottoms are ???? Does this take away from who YOU are? No. Does this mean you are unhealthy? No. Are rolls something to be ashamed of? NO. Your value doesn't increase regardless of the shape of your body ???? Tonight I had a pizza night with my boyfriend and I ate half of a large alllll to myself ???????? I don't feel any regret or guilt in the slightest. I know I've been saying it a lot often but I am just so happy with how healthy my relationship with food is now ???????? There is no way two years ago I could eat half a large pizza and not turn it into an all-out binge ???? Once I decided to focus on self-love instead of my aesthetics my life changed. I'm not obsessing over food, not worried about weighing or counting it and I'm not worried about my weight ???? Everyone deserves this peace of mind. Everyone deserves to love themselves ❤ (PS I had a writer from SELF.com (@selfmagazine) reach out to me to do an interview all about my decision on my year of self-love! The article is up now and if you'd like to read it the link is in my bio ????????) #yearofselflove #aerieREAL #effyourbeautystandards #embracethesquish
