As time went on I became more displeased with my body. I was angry with it, embarrassed by it, and disgusted by it. So quite naturally I developed an eating disorder.
Now that I am in my 30s I still long to be thin- but now I realize that I will not have a slender body. I have a muscular body. I build muscle quickly, and I am finally learning to appreciate this. As a pole dancer, my strength and ability to build muscle come in extremely handy here.
Sometimes I find it hard to appreciate my body for what it is able to do-- but I need to keep reminding myself of what I can do, not what I can't.
