Bulimia can have devastating effects on your body. This virtual guide highlights the parts of your body most damaged by the eating disorder.
You can be at a healthy BMI and not be at a healthy weight for your body
remember also: you can be at a technically ‘overweight’ BMI and that might be a healthy weight for your body because BMI is actually a load of crap!
Very true! At an overweight bmi, I am actually a healthy weight for me.
You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You, yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserves your love and affection.
Gautama Buddha (via yayaspapayas)
I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
