A fitness blogger named Kate has recently shown on her Instagram account called “Dedikated lifestyle” how she has changed over 6 years. At first glance, it might seem that the order of the photos has been mixed up but, in fact, it hasn’t. She really didn’t become any slimmer, but vice versa — she got curvier. Kate claims she has become happier and our article is going to tell you why.

We at Bright Side admire people, and Kate in particular, who are brave enough to show their true feelings to the world, as well as follow their heart. We hope you’ll find some inspiration from her too.

“I find it so hard to look at old photos and remember being that girl 💔 Not because I wish I still looked like that or because I compare my body. But because it reminds me of how obsessed I was.
It reminds me of when I would exclude myself from social events so I didn’t have to eat out. It reminds me of losing time with my friends, family, and husband because I chose the gym above everything. It reminds me of daily weigh-ins, secret binges, and constantly wanting to be less.
And you know what, it reminds me of sadness, being self-conscious, and never feeling like I was good enough.

I know that I would much rather be curvier/bigger/thicker, be free from diet culture, and have freedom around food, than be “lean” and consumed by weighing less, seeing those numbers go down every day, and counting the calories in my lettuce leaves.
