One of the things which keeps drawing me back about EatingJourney (although I have taken breaks from it twice) is the Exposed Movement. This is when I did something crazy and showed the world this.
But really, why on God’s green earth would I take a picture of myself in my knickers?
Cause I was tired of
Hating my body.
Women hating their bodies
Men hating their bodies
Little girls going on diets
Little boys skipping dinner, because they wanted to be thin.
I have written about what sparked the Exposed Movement here and discussed in more detail why I did it. But more, this movement is a grassroots movement that has changed my life. I am constantly inspired by people’s stories, what they’ve overcame to get to the point where they enable their bodies/souls/minds/spirit to be thrown out to the world to see.
To be honest I can’t even believe that it’s grown now to FORTY, FORTY ONE, TWO, THREE! (see below for those who have joined after I originally posted this) That’s right Steve @ 265andFalling did an Exposed post TODAY! He’s number 40! I can’t even believe it. Go show him some love and support today!!! He deserves it!
I had never expected to actually planned on “exposing” myself on this site. I won’t even take off my shirt at the pool, at the beach, around my family, etc…why in the hell would I reveal myself to the entire world via the internet. But here we are, still though…
I thought that the main reason I was so hesitant to do this was because I absolutely hated and was embarrassed by my body. The more I think about it though, I don’t really hate my body at all. I’m not pleased with the way it looks, but its appearance isn’t really any fault of its own. It was my mind that had done all of the damage, with its lack of self esteem and self worth, with its attempts to find comfort in food, with its lack of moderation and honestly, lack of caring, really.
I heart Steve so much, as well as the other 39 people from around the world who have jumped on the Exposed Movement bandwagon. I can’t believe it.
Even if you don’t want to blog about exposing yourself…stand in the mirror today and tell yourself three things that you admire, love, cherish, apprecaite about what your body has done for you.
Now…what were your three things?
Go on..do it!
