5/365 | #thisisrecovery365 . There's a new hashtag that says #weightgainiscool & I've been sort of wanting to participate in it but then also not wanting to participate because of this pesky little thing where I-swore-I'd-be-honest-on-my-social-media-&-I-actually-don't-think-my-weight-gain-is-very-cool-I-think-it's-really-really-scary. And dangerous. As in, eating disorders that morph from one into another into another, which is super characteristic of EDs, are really, really fucking dangerous. . Then tonight I found myself on the brink of skipping my 12 step meeting because, well, snow. And when I bundled up anyway & put on my boots and my parka and snow suit and family got me there even through 625,894,285 feet of white shit on the ground (thanks @lavenderhorses) it reminded me that it would've been so, SO easy to skip. But I didn't. I was there. All....... two of us. And it was perfect. And like I tell you guys a million times a day, this is the work. Showing up. . I'm not a picture of recovered. I'm a picture of recovery. The one with the y. As in, 'the process of.' . And maybe mine doesn't look like other people's recovery but I'm still allowed to post in #weightgainiscool. Because this is a clear picture of weight gain from a time when I was bouncing between 98-104ish lbs depending on the day, to now. And eventually, there'll be a third picture to add to the right. A picture of a woman who's been to the hell they call treatment & recovery and made it out. Who's full of strength, recovery, Health, hope, gratitude. And who's cool regardless of gain, loss, or maintenance. As are you. And so it is. #eatingdisorderrecovery #healthoverhollywood #mentalhealth #bodypositive

Today in 2012 I was 2 days out from a runway show where my wardrobe was a dress/gown/thing Completely. Made. From. Latex (for the love of God, don't ask how I got myself into some of the shit I did...no good answer). . What with the latex & all, I'd cut my diet down to coffee & trail mix since my fitting. Oh, also the wine I had the night before when I met a friend I hadn't seen in awhile for drinks who greeted me, "Um, hi Ms. My-Thighs-Don't-Touch!" I remember so clearly the excitement & smugness washing over me, as if it was my greatest accomplishment to date. I brushed it off & acted humble & embarrassed while inside I was bouncing around like a 3 month old puppy. . Instead of almonds, coffee, thighs that don't touch - today, 4 years later (although it feels like a million years & like yesterday simultaneously) I saw a Christmas musical at the theater with my mommy @lavenderhorses, where I drank a Shirley Temple & ate lots of chocolate. Also, laughed & smiled & sparkled & felt joyful & all warm & fuzzy & alive inside. . Then I had a big Mexican dinner with company where I ate maybe a little itty bit too much BUT enjoyed every bite & refrained from the negative self-talk afterward about how huge & disgusting I am, and how no one'll ever want me & on and on and on. . Instead, I came home & took the picture you see on the right. The one where I'm content & smiling despite the cellulite I'm still learning to accept, the stretch marks I've battled for years & the chubby thighs, where a "gap" used to be. . I realize that now, 4 years later, I am still here. I'm still beautiful. I am still worth afternoons at the theater & company at dinner. I'm still lovable. And enough. And worthy. And again- still HERE. Alive. When I likely wouldn't be had I continued on the path I was back then. . I trust I'll keep learning as I work through my past. For now, I'll take tonight's lesson & allow it to soak in. And maybe it'll help you too. . PS I'd take us ALL to dinner and the theater together if we could. No, seriously. Shirley Temples for everybody
