"Diet culture values size, weight, and shape over well-being.⠀
Surrounded by edited beach bodies and photoshopped bikini-clad women, it's very hard to not feel the need to be a certain size, to get yourself below a certain weight, to starve yourself into changing your shape. It becomes too easy to create the narration that you are somehow less, that you are a failure if you did not achieve those 'body goals.' ⠀
But you are not a failure, you are so much more than the numbers on a scale or the size of your waistband. Your value doesn't disintegrate with your arm flab, or because you have cellulite on your thighs that whisper to each other when you walk. You are a human, with so much more to offer the world, and really, fuck diet culture for making you feel anything less."
