National Eating Disorder Awareness Week….and a Little Lent Update

Hey Fashionistas!

I hope everyone is doing well with their Lenten sacrifices! I know mine is starting to get tough but we’re all in this together right? So let’s continue powering through! Remember when in doubt, pray it out 😉 #offeritup

My 40-Day #BBClosetChallenge is going well. It’s been about a week and a half since I’ve started and let’s just say it’s interesting. It’s definitely not what I’m expecting but I guess that’s what makes it a challenge, right? I’ve really had to come up with some creative ways to make the outfits different with just 9 pieces of clothing.

Same shirt but add a cardigan and scarf and it looks totally different 😉

Now some of you might already know this, but this week is National Eating Disorder Awareness Week. As someone who is recovering from an eating disorder, this week is super important to me. This week for me is all about self love. Having had an eating disorder was a constant struggle to love and see myself as a daughter of God – that I was a made in his image and likeness. I was super focused on my weight and wanting to focus on my outer appearance that I forgot about my inner beauty. I became so fixated about how I wanted to look and feel that I forgot all about how God created me in my own special, unique, and beautiful way.

I’ll dive more into my personal journey on the struggles and recovery of my eating disorder in my next post, but in the meantime, I wanted to end this post on a positive note. So for this week, I’m adding something to my #BBClosetChallenge. Each day this week, I am going to do at least 1 act of kindness. From personal experience, sometimes in order to start loving yourself, you have to start loving others and seeing the beauty that comes from that.

Xoxo,

Christine
