Thank you for this insightful essay, Amber. I loved your feelings and way of writing.

I started losing weight for self-acceptance. I wasn’t able to accept myself as I had been in my childhood, I simply didn’t want to look at the mirror. I lost 26 kgs and it continued. I couldn’t make peace with my body, I continued not to be able to look at the mirror and they all caused an obsessive diet.

When I finally learned to accept myself as I’m and all my mindset changed, everything became more beautiful. I both loved myself in every shape and adapted healthy lifestyle. I still sometimes want to overeat, but eventually my body warns me to go back to healthy mood. Both my body and mind are fresh!
