Monday evening reminder that you are enough. You are enough with your flaws and insecurities. You are enough with the things on your body you wish you could change. You are enough with the times in your past you wish you could change. You are enough with your anxiety and depression and any other mental illness you may be struggling with. You are enough today and every other day and don t you forget it. πŸ“·: @jahoffie
It is your weekly reminder that exactly as you are, however you are, YOU ARE ENOUGH!!!

Today is my 30th birthday and while most people dread this day, I AM THRILLED!!!

Today, I am saying goodbye to quite a decade.

I am acknowledging it first and saying:
Yup,
I see you
Misdiagnosis
Suicidal ideation
Suicide attempts
Binging
Purging
Self harm
Rape
21 hospitalizations
5 years of hallucinating
Agoraphobia
Isolation
And hatred
So much hatred.

I see you. •

I accept you.

And goodbye. •

Goodbye.


And then, I am starting anew.

But this time,
Instead of beginning with hatred and confusion,
I am beginning with acceptance, resilience and courage.

This is me πŸ‘†
The real me.
Have you met me yet?
It s okay, I m still meeting me too.

Hi πŸ€—
my name is kate.
Positively kate.
I am a goofball.
I am a dork.
I am a daughter, sister, lover and dog mom.
I am a human living transparently and shamelessly with mental illness.

And I am going to change the world, one story at a time.

Because from the travels of my twenties,
I learned a lot.
And it is time for the world to learn these truths too.

We are more than our illnesses.
We are more than our bodies.
We are more than any box someone tries to fit us in.
And the vulnerability within us,
Is our greatest strength.

So yup,
Here s to a new decade.
Full of advocacy, sillies, storytelling, vulnerability & love.

Here s to showing that recovery is possible
And life with illness is not only a badge of courage and nothing to be ashamed of,
But it is also a testament to true bravery.

With love, light and so much dork,
Yours,
Kate speer

Oh babé babé!!! It is a #jiggleforjoy day today!

I am jiggling with so much gratitude!!!!
For my body!
For this community!
For this ass kicking process of recovery that teaches me everyday:
I AM WORTHY.
I AM A WARRIOR.
And,
EXACTLY AS I AM,
I AM ENOUGH.

YES, ENOUGH.
JUST LIKE YOU!!!!

So here s to us today!

Here s to our power to fight.
To grow.
To make peace with our demons.
& To recover.

Here s to our power to be ourselves unapologetically.
To accept ourselves fully.
And, above all,
To love ourselves completely.

And here s to our power to know:
Bodies jiggle.
Bodies squish.
Bodies shake.
AND BODIES ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN THAT.

Yes,
They are unique temples that carry our fabulous, resilient, grateful warrior selves through this amazing life.

So here s to YOU today and that body that gets you through.

#jiggleforjoy watched some belly dancing videos today!! thought i d learn a bit of something new and give it a try myself!!πŸ’ƒπŸ»(only thing that annoys me is every single workout video i enjoy is by a very toned girl, don t get me wrong, that body type is absolutely fine and they rock it, but it d be nice to see some average bodies doing it too, like mine!! just a thoughtπŸ˜‹) anyway here s my jiggle! don t be afraid or embarrassed to try something new, just have fun!! πŸ’œ
Happy first day of August, you fabulous BABES!!! β–ͺ️

It is your weekly reminder that bodies JIGGLE!!!!!!

This was the hardest one yet (I have binged straight for 2 weeks and am struggling majorly with my ED demons as of late) but I m sticking to it because damnit...

if jiggling in a thin privileged, able bodied privileged, tan body like mine is hard than golly gee, THIS SOCIETY NEEDS TO BE WAY MORE ACCEPTING and THIS MESSAGE NEEDS TO BE HEARD.

Bodies jiggle.
Bodies squish.
Bodies shake.

That is what they do!

Annnnd, most importantly, we are SO MUCH MORE than them.

So jiggle that fabulous self with joy today because...

YOU

EXACTLY AS YOU ARE,

ARE ENOUGH.

Yeah, I m talking to you, beautiful babe.

YOU. 😘

with love, dork & jiggle,
Yours,

Last round of #embracethesquish in this #selflovebootcamp by the amazing @omgkenzieee πŸ’ž
I used to be ashamed of my stomach "hanging" when I laid on the side and would always lie on my back if I were at the beach to make it look flat.
It also took some time to get comfortable with my husband touching my tummy when we were spooning.
Now I don t really bother. It s my stomach and it s cute and soft and jiggly and that s ok πŸ‘πŸ» #allbodiesaregoodbodies #curvygirl #curvywomen #embrace #effyourstandards #effyourbeautystandards #firstselflovers #jiggleforjoy #justthewayyouare #kropspositiv #loveyourself #loveyourtatts #mybodymybff #mermaidthighs #squishy #selflove #squishylegs #youareenough #youaregoodenough

β €
Today is about one thing: Move in some way that makes you smile. Dance. Get lost in the woods. Dare yourself to jump into cold water. Hug someone. Trade massages with a friend. Breathe deeper than yesterday.β €
β €
If you re feeling at all disconnected from your body or in pain, let your body speak. It doesn t have to look like something in particular. Your body knows the way. What does she want today? What would feel so good? Find it together.β €
β €
I love you. Tag your posts @madelinegabor and hashtag it up with #InThisBody so we can celebrate these gorgeous, smiling bodies together.

Day 13 #embracethesquish

This weekend I head to a country festival with plus 30 weather. I m trying to remember that my body CAN and is ALLOWED to wear shorts. I do not have to cover up any jiggle or cellulite. I deserve to be comfortable.

I realize that we are supposed to #JiggleForJoy thanks to @positively.kate ...BUT I REALLYYYY wanted to dance to Moana because it s been stuck in my head and I need to pass it on ( You re Welcome πŸ˜‰) .... you can t really jiggle and shake to this so please enjoy this horrendously improvised "contemporary" piece πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜³

Tomorrow I m announcing !!!! something delicious and close to my heart - movement related - that involves me and you.
Yes, you.
I love you. We re all in this dance together.
I decided there s just something to this movement thing - to getting inside my body every damn day and to sharing the many, many ways that looks through this little screen.
To witnessing without fixing.
To letting my body unravel herself.
To exploring her holy sanctuary.
To allowing pleasure.
To sending breath to the places that feel like too much.
To finding belonging here in this body.
To B E I N G that in the world. ⚑️
Day 11 was DANCE! Also known as JIGGLING FOR JOY DAY created by the super awesome @positively.kate πŸ™ŒπŸΌ
And even though I take at least 10 videos and analyze all of them before posting one, I have a lot of fun doing it. I have a lot of fun just dancing around in the apartment, feeling like a professional (πŸ˜‚) not giving a care in the world πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»πŸ’ƒπŸ»

APPARENTLY posting a 40 second video where you celebrate self love, credit the artist, and promote the artists new song coming out is COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENT. So here it is again without sound. Womp womp.

Day 11: Jiggle for Joy

Today s theme is jiggle for joy! And it couldn t have come on a more perfect day. Demi Lovato s new single, Sorry Not Sorry, came out and I can t stop listening and dancing!
I m jiggling and that s ok! I am happy and carefree and moving joyfully in my body. If you don t like it, oh well. SORRY NOT SORRY.

I couldn t quite bring myself to make a video of myself dancing for #Selflovebootcamp Day 11 yesterday // I ve become the type of adult who says things like "You ll have to get a few drinks in me before I ll step foot on that dance floor" - so this one was difficult for me. \\

As a five year old, my favorite thing in the world was to dance in dresses and skirts that twirled with my body. I loved being the center of attention and when I danced I wanted everyone to see, to watch me, to giggle with me and appreciate the awesome ways in which my body could move. πŸ’ƒπŸΌ

I ve found that such a huge part of this journey is learning to honor my inner child, because she is one of my biggest role models πŸ™‡πŸΌ‍♀️ She also happens to be one of the best dancers I know - not because she has any sense of rhythm or killer moves, but because it brings her joy. 🌻


So this morning I woke up, slipped on my favorite twirly peacock dress, put on my feel good jam of the week (Good Nights by Whethan ft. Mascolo), and got my groove on. And I feel goofy and awkward and I want to be self-deprecating about it as a defense mechanism, but I won t. I m gonna rock it because bodies were made to move and shake and shimmy and that is a beautiful thing. πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

#selflovebootcamp with @omgkenzieee
Day 11: #dance
I ve been following @positively.kate
and loving her #jiggleforjoy posts for a while now. She is truly an amazing being!
...
I am not yet confident enough to prance around in my undies like I see everyone else doing. I find myself comparing everyone s beautiful jiggly tight-skinned bodies to my own (self-perceived ugly) wrinkly saggy-skinned body and it takes me to a very dark place in my mind. It was difficult enough for me to show you guys my squishy loose skin last week.
...
So for now, I ll share with you "the Brooke". When I was in ED residential last year from Jan to May, I had a dance therapist. I was not only being treated for atypical anorexia, anxiety, OCD, PTSD, and body dysmorphic disorder, but severe exercise addiction as well. My individual therapist realized quickly that I needed to learn to relax, play, and move my body in fun ways that did not focus on burning calories. So I had a movement therapist too that I saw twice weekly. I put together a group of "routines", naming each movement something silly, different routines for different moods, and she wrote them down for me. Here s me back in May, doing one of my many Brooke dances, as I became a part of the digital art exhibit. You can often find me doing a version of the Brooke when I m out and about. It helps me relax when I m nervous or uncomfortable, it brings me back to who I am.
...
I hope that very soon, I will be able to publicly dance and jiggle. I love to fast dance (and unfortunately that s probably because of burning calories, but it s fun to be fast, so I m conflicted), but I m extremely self-conscious of my excess skin flapping. Currently I only dance slowly when anyone is watching.

Day 11 of #selflovebootcamp is #jiggleforjoy!
I definitely thought about skipping this day. It s completely out of my comfort zone to do this.
I thought of every excuse in the book. I can t dance. The lighting isn t great. I m recovering from wisdom teeth surgery. It s late. Pandora is being dumb. I can t find a song I like. Etc, etc...
But the lovely @beebodypositivex did a dance video while she s recovering from ankle surgery, so gosh darn it I can do one too!
So here s me. Jamming out to one of my favorite songs. I can t dance well, but you can see the joy in my face!
I am fat so there s lots on my body to jiggle. And that s okay! It doesn t make me any less worthy, any less beautiful, or any less amazing. 🌹
Here s to challenging that negative voice in our heads. Here s to loving ourselves no matter what. Here s to days filled with joy instead of body checking. Here s to us πŸ’œπŸ’™β€οΈ

Day 11 of the #selflovebootcamp Here s a video of me dancing. I thought I d find this more embarrassing that I do. Honestly this was a blast. The more I see my body move, the more I like it. It s funny how that works. #jiggleforjoy
Day 11 of #selflovebootcamp is #jiggleforjoy bu the lovely and awesome human @positively.kate
I haven t been posting in boot camp since Thursday. Mostly due to someone close to me not approving of it. I didn t think I took it seriously or stopped posting because of them. But, today I realized my motivation and excitement to do these posts dissipated after that encounter.
So, today s post for me is about shaking off other people s judgements and jiggle for what I find joy in... no matter what other people say! I m exhausted and just put the kids to bed but I got a little mini shake in for me! Love to all of you and hoping you can shake off other people s judgement and expectation and do what makes you happy!

Day 11 #selflovebootcamp - #dance

Today, I didn t dance for joy. I didn t #jiggleforjoy or #dropitlikeitshot

Today, I played the mental illness game, danced with my medications, and swam through muddy waters with tired limbs.

I am still learning not to get angry or frustrated with myself when I simply can t do what I want to, because of symptoms or side effects. I am still learning how to be kind to my body and brain. I am still learning to not apologize for needing naps.

I don t feel confident today, and that s okay. Negative thought are dancing in my head, and that s okay too. My body is exhausted and my head hurts. Guess what? That s okay too.

I am working with a doctor I trust. I am working towards a medication regime that works for me. I am trying to get enough sleep, get outside, drink enough water, and eat healthily (which includes salty potato chips for me, because #treatyoself) I may not have physically felt like doing anything today, but the fact that I woke up, tried to do my best, and am ready for bed to try again tomorrow? That s the best mental victory #jiggleforjoy I could ever do.

You are enough.

P.S. I wear a @desertdustjewelry cactus ring to remind me that I am resilient. And a ring from @maredare11 to remind me that I am loved. There are so many talented humans in the world. ❀️

#selflovebootcamp day 11 is dance. I wanted to to a #jiggleforjoy but I was feeling pretty under the weather today and got straight in bed after getting home. So here s a picture from almost exactly a year ago. A beautiful picture of a girl who is struggling immensely. Who is doin g this photo shoot despite the fact that she has a fucking stress fracture in her shin and is supposed to be in a boot. But doing what she loves most. ED promised me that he would help me but instead he took my ballet career away from me. I miss it. I miss it so much. I miss the way it feels, the rush of performing, the pride of calling myself a professional ballet dancer. Not much to say besides that tonight. I m angry and sad. And I miss pouring my heart out using my body. EDs are cruel. Don t let yours stop you from dancing πŸ’•

Hey y all! Sorry for the late post. I had work & I m currently sick. Today is for us to post a video of us dancing for #jiggleforjoy ( @positively.kate). To be honest I wasn t going to post anything. I feel like shit and especially didn t want to see anything ~jiggle~ However, I felt so good after filming this. Yes, I m still sick but I don t feel as miserable. Probably because Eric Church is perfect & it makes me think of Josh. So even though I didn t want to post today, here is my very dark not very jiggly dance video. I hope y all enjoy. Dance on my warriors!

Day 11✨: #selflovebootcamp #dancechallenge ... Today, I honor the body that I ve been given by shaking It!! (I m feeling awkward posting this but IDGF) ✌🏻🌈 #loveyourself #everyBODYisbeautiful #bodypositive #beautiful #elsalvador #jiggleforjoy #dancing #jiggle #preworkout #danceforselflove #migente #jbalvin
my #jiggleforjoy post i m also sharing with my mamma. we both worked our butts off for months trying to lose weight and tone up for my wedding last month. she lost 45 pounds and i lost about 7. i was so self conscious the days leading up that my lower tummy wasnt flat enough for this dress. and my mom had been self conscious from the get go about how she looked in her dress. and looking at this picture, we honestly both see imperfections. but what we see more is the incredible time we had dancing the night away and making memories, and that i will cherish more than any amount of weight i couldve lost. #selflovebootcamp #day11 #justdance #bodypositive #weddingthings
Black and white video of my jamming out to T.Swift for day 11 of #selflovebootcamp today we #jiggleforjoy ! I actually just finished watching a @positively.kate livestream which was a great way to end my day. Recording this was actually quite fun... but I didn t watch it after I recorded, I just hit post BECAUSE WHO CARES IF I LOOK SILLY? IM HAVING FUN! WOOOH!
Day 11 of #selflovebootcamp • Okay so for the last Bootcamp I didn t participate in this day..... but I pushed myself to do it this time around 😊 I feel super silly but that s okay! Have a lovely night 🌈
Too tired to dance today, I was actually looking forward to #jiggleforjoy with @omgkenzieee #selflovebootcamp Instead, here are some empowered women shaking it and doing a damn good job!!! #thunderthighs #misseaves @yoeaves thank you for your super great involvement in feminism and body positive creativity πŸ’œπŸ’™πŸ’š#bodypositive #bopo #everybodycounts
πŸ˜‚ I genuinely can t believe I did this but here is my #jiggleforjoy I ve always loved watching belly dancing & wished I could be brave enough to do it myself. I thought my body wasn t cute enough & nobody would ever want to watch that. Well fuck it. If I want to dance I will. #selflovebootcamp #jiggle #jiggleforjoy #bellydance #mombod #stretchmarks #iamadork #butiamcute
Hey ladies, happy day 11 of the #selflovebootcamp! Seeing all of you incredible women dance and get your groove on today makes me so happy. However, I am not in the mood to dance, I don t think it would bring me joy. I would like it to come from an authentic place, and I m just not there tonight.
So instead, I will give you something that does bring me joy: a kitten chasing after a jiggly toy (who we call Flouncey the Flamingo). What could be better than that after a very, very long day? Peace and loveβ™‘

Day 11 of the #selflovebootcamp is #dance and even after participating in two previous self love boot camps... I still can t bring myself to do it.

You bring me so much joy and light. And hope.
So today I wish to give some of that back to you.

BECAUSE of everything YOU are and share, for your strength and vulnerability. Your magic. I am sharing this video.

For you. For me. For my body. And for anyone who could need some inspiration to embrace their own wonderful and worthy self. Just like you ve inspired me.

I am sharing this video with gratitude to my body. For everything that she is and for everything that she can do.

I m JIGGLING FOR JOY over here for #selflovebootcamp Day 11! This song, Weak by AJR, has taught me a lot about myself. Firstly, it s catchy as hell, but secondly, it is okay to admit that we are weak. I know this song is touching on drugs and alcohol, but we don t have to be strong all the time, we are allowed to be vulnerable and resistant.
πŸ”½πŸ”½πŸ”½
We have been taught to put on our best face, to grin and bear it. You have permission to feel however you are feeling. And that is okay. As @positively.kate repeats, "YOU ARE ENOUGH!" No matter what you are going through, in all its shapes and forms. ❀️
✨Sometimes I m weak, and nothing is wrong with that.✨
πŸ”½πŸ”½πŸ”½
Please enjoy my dogs staring at me as if I am an alien and also that I jiggled so hard that I lost my breath at the end. πŸ˜‚
DAY 11 - #jiggleforjoy
Small jiggle on my way to work 😊 this was so awkward to film cause cars were driving past me but I thought, FUCK IT!!! ❀️ Blasting Born For Greatness by @PapaRoach 😍😘 "NO WE RE NOT NAMELESS, WE RE NOT FACELESS, WE WERE BORN FOR GREATNESS!!" #selfcarebootcamp #day11
Today on #selflovebootcamp I feel SO SILLY. -
πŸ’™
-
I am not a dancer and I do not play one on tv. In fact, 99% of my dancing nowadays is doing the hokey pokey and other toddler themed routines, but I still decided to #jiggleforjoy cause I freaking adore everything this hashtag is about. -
πŸ’™
-
It was created by @positively.kate as a way to celebrate, express gratitude, and be more than the bodies we inhabit, and I think that s worth dork dancing in my tiny grad student office. -
πŸ’™
-
Song is "Love Myself" by Hailee Steinfield (seems appropriate, yah?) πŸ’™
Happy jiggling, Warriors!
Day 11 of @omgkenzieee s #SelfLoveBootcamp is dance!
Dance is a huge part of who I am. πŸ€— I m a dancer as well as a dance educator. I ve trained in most styles, however my favorites are ballet and contemporary! I also love doing dance photo shoots. I feel like dance photos are extremely beautiful.
In addition, I aspire to create an eating disorder treatment program for dancers.
What s your connection to dance – whether it s as a dancer, dance teacher, dance parents, or just someone who likes to dance in their room or at parties? 😊

Today s challenge is to #jiggleforjoy aka do a dance and post a photo, video or screen shot. So I almost chickened out on this one. I even filmed a video dancing to Phil Collins "Dance Into The Light" cause I thought it d be a perfect match for today s challenge and also this whole theme of learning to take up space and step into your own light... Well as you ve might guessed I couldn t get myself to post the video so all you get is this shortcut . πŸ’š
#selflovebootcamp @positively.kate
#firstselflovers
I m dyingπŸ˜‚. DAY ELEVEN OF SELF LOVE BOOTCAMP! Today s theme is dancing and celebrating the fact that all bodies can dance! I wanna see you all #jiggleforjoy just like @positively.kate ! You can bust a move no matter what size/shape you are (even if your moves are as lame as mineπŸ˜‚). Today I m dancing to my queen @theprettymess and reminding you all TO GIVE ZERO FUCKS about what people say/think about you cause you re all damn goddesses. Happy Tuesday everyone! Special thanks to @omgkenzieee for another amazing round of SLB😊

Today is Day 11: #jiggleforjoy however I am not having a very body positive day today!

Jiggle for joy is supposed to be an expression of gratitude. It s supposed to empower us and show that we are more than our bodies (which I am trying so hard to believe!) however today I am finding it hard to push past those disordered thoughts that are telling me having jiggly bits is bad. That having anything that wobbles makes me less worthy!

I m fighting hard against those thoughts that are punishing me for not reaching my step count today (despite the fact that I ve been to the gym, done 7500 steps, done housework etc it makes no difference!) or the thoughts that are telling me I m going to be fat and unlovable because I ate pizza and ice cream last night!

I m disappointed that I m not taking part in today s challenge as I ve watched others doing their dances and jigglying their beautiful selves and I want to be them. I want to just dance and jiggle and let my body simply be, but today s not that day. And maybe it ll take a while for me to get there but I will get there. Might not feel like that now but one day, my mind won t bully my body anymore πŸ’•

#selflovebootcamp by @omgkenzieee days 08-11... catch up day πŸ˜…

Day 08: #celluliteSaturday
This one was tough for me and I couldn t get a great picture, but this one works for me!
β–ͺ️
Day 09: #selfieSunday
I actually took this one on Sunday! My brother got married on Saturday, so this was reception 2.0 at the water park!
β–ͺ️
Day 10: Media Literacy
I didn t download facetune because I had a different idea after this weekend. I wore a bridesmaid dress that made me feel very pretty, but in the back of my head I knew it wasn t how David s Bridal advertises it... but you know what? It made me feel very pretty! So here s a comparison; model vs. reality.
β–ͺ️
Day 11: Dance #jiggleforjoy
I wasn t expecting this to be the hardest for me so far. Dancing is something I m super self conscious about, but I tried to forget about it and have fun at my brother s wedding, so here s a picture of me doing that with the rest of the wedding party!
β–ͺ️
All caught up!! See you tomorrow 😘

#jiggleforjoy
I don t have a feel good song cause I often groove to any song hear!.,
-
πŸŒ™Don t you just enjoy grooving along to beats and having fun with the imaginary song in your head?!.,
-
πŸ’ƒπŸ»I do this whenever I can eve in the hospital with my patients (this is the best).,
-
⭐️First video, #throwback to @selenagomez concert! the audience around me were like awkward and didn t wanna get up (we were seated). My sister was feeling shy too.,
-
I didn t care, I just felt the music and thought: I came here to dance and feel the music, ain t nobody got to worry about me looking weird/funny just because I can t groove or dance right! πŸ˜‰.,
-
πŸŒ™Often times we get intimidated by people who can dance so flawless or who can follow the beat . But I say we shouldn t feel so and just let go!You don t have to be a good dancer to dance. .,
-
❀️Even my friends and I would be dancing / grooving in random places whenever we traveled (#throwback to Paris, Disneyland).

Day 11 of #selflovebootcamp : #dance x #jiggleforjoy πŸ’ƒπŸΌ



I KNOW.
1️⃣I m not dancing. Don t feel confident enough posting a video of me dancing on insta.
2️⃣wheres the jiggle ? TBH I m asking myself the same question... I asked my bf to take this vid cause when I walk all I can feel is jiggle - from my legs, specially thighs, to tummy (n boobies😝) I seriously feel like everything just jiggles fat.... and I guess the reason why I m still posting this video to highlight the cognitive side behind all of this. ➑️My thinking is fucked. It s warped. Conclusion: I clearly can t trust my mind (but that s a given😬). Coping... slowly but surely. I m using tools. I m trying. Some days are harder than others but that s okay. Acceptance is the key to all my problems today πŸ™πŸΌ

One thing that i have found with my body dysmorphia that is odd to explain is that a "flaw" I would see on myself, I could easily see it as beautiful on another.
Another important thing to note is that body dysmorphia isn t solely based around fat.
Its an odd thing to be able to see the beauty in everyone and everything, but oneself.
Once i started appreciating my body for what it did for me rather than bashing it for all the pain and agony, i started seeing the real me. I started falling in love with me.
I still have days where its hard, and i get those tiny little irritating mini details circulating in the back of my mind. That s when I give them extra love.
My tummy used to be bloated all the time, even when i was on a fruitarian diet. Now, with intuitive eating, my tummy isn t as bloated; although, with all the weight loss, it looks more jiggly now than it did back then. So i m learning to love the loose skin and treating it as an accomplishment.
That i lost the weight naturally. Without starving myself. Without saying "no" to food. Without actually caring about loosing weight because I made my health a priority rather than focusing on the fat or a number.
Love your body. And listen to it. Treat it with admiration and respect. Whatever that may mean to you.
Messy hair, don t care!! πŸ˜‚...because we ve got a @eatsqueakypops for dessert tonight!! SUPER yum!! 🍑
HAPPPPPY FIRST DAY OF SUMMMMERRRR!!!!! It is time to take back the beach!!!

We are LOVING this #jiggleforjoy video by @positively.kate! πŸ™ŒπŸ˜„πŸ’› #F2BH #F2BHFam #personaltraining #yaletown
Today let us be enough for ourselves and let us remember - that is all that truly matters.

Last night, upon seeing this photo, my ED started screaming at me. The discomfort in my body grew. Anxiety rolled in like summer thunderstorms and I found myself paralyzed with self loathing and doubt.

I then went on to check in with my beloved support community here πŸ‘‹ and was faced with a number of posts stating that my own posting in my thin privileged body about learning self love and acceptance were hurting people. I found myself in tears in the shower, confused and fearful.

Overwhelmed and truly exhausted, I fell into a fitful sleep.

This morning, I awoke with the sun and found peace in the morning dew, a small cup of coffee and a mosey about town.

And what I found on that walk is this:
I am only one human.
I only speak for myself.
I share my story here - above all - for me so that I remember it in the wake of shock therapy gone wrong.
And if my story touches one life, one soul, one human with light or hope or companionship in darkness, then I have served my purpose on this earth.

So today, I am putting that doubt behind me.
I am leaning into the discomfort of my body with compassion and kindness.

And I am saying this:
Every human has a right to feel and express themselves freely.
Every human has a right to their story and that is story is valuable.
And every human has the responsibility to educate themselves, check their privilege and find gratitude in the good they are granted.

So,
With that in mind I say this:
If you would like to send me articles on body positivity, intersectionalism and anything else, I WOULD LOVE to read them and think critically and grow with you.

Meanwhile, I am also going to grow myself.

For me, that looks like finding love and acceptance for all of me, for every nook and cranny of my body and mind, for 10 years of psychiatric hell and for this incredible and complex life I am given.

Above all, For me, that is expressing this πŸ‘‡ in every way I possibly can - yes jiggles of gratitude included:

We are enough,
Exactly as we are.
Oh me oh my oh!!!! What. A. Day. •
Day 1 at the classic and I am blown away by it. I cannot believe after years of believing I would never leave a ward, I have ended up here. Am I crying right now from the gratitude that is pulsing through my body? Ayupppp. πŸ™‹

Today, was full full full of everything! nitro cold brew pouring, coffee brewing, caffeinated chatterboxing, cheese eating, wonderful humans, SO much coffee drinking and more and I am so relieved and grateful that everything went well for my beloved @kingsrowcoffee today.

But truthfully, my true enthusiasm and gratitude does not go to this elixir of awakening or how well received it was. It goes out to the miraculously helpful and kind staff here. Oh my golly gee I could not have done it without them and their smiles and high fives!!!! •

The people here are SO kind and supportive. Their warmth makes me feel at home in my skin, as if I have always belonged in it and belonged here. Do you know that kind of kindness and acceptance? Where a human sees you entirely and says yes you. Yes you. Yes you.
Wow. I just find such kindness beyond inspiring and I so desperately want to radiate it into this world. Such kindness is so needed!

I m going to hold their light within me tonight as I drift off to sleep with hopes I can give such light off tomorrow.

So yes, tonight here s to those little glimmers of light that I received today and that you all give me.
Here s to having the honor to get be such light to the world.
Here s to a full heart and tummy.
And here s to a day where I belonged.

May you know you deserve such a feeling too.
And may you know that -
No matter your mood, diagnosis, day or otherwise,
exactly as you are,
You are enough.

With love and dork,
Kate Speer

Happy Sunday LOVERS!!!! I made this video for ya yesterday but WHOOPS life took over and I love that fact πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—but guess what, it still applies!!!! Yup, It s a #jiggleforjoy day here in Vermont where I am alive and so grateful to be!!!

As you are well aware of at this point, it was a rough week for me. The ptsd of my self harm and suicidal days took over and each night, I was faced with nightmares about the rape I experienced in the inpatient program I attended. •
Understandably, these dark memories and subsequent dark feelings brought on a resurgence of some old "management" behaviors.

Yup, I hid from the world. Yup, I locked my emotions in and didn t tell anyone. And yup, I binged a whole lot. I binged to suffocate myself. I binged to punish me for my darkness. I binged to just feel something comprehensible.

I m not psyched that this was my reaction to all my ptsd and anxiety but nevertheless, I am accepting it and forgiving myself for it.

Yes, I regressed to self hatred.
Yes, I binged to hurt myself.
And YES I AM STILL A WARRIOR.

In the past, this reset weekend would have involved starvation, two half marathons, cutting myself as punishment and hiding from the world for one week until the "binge fat," as I used to call it was unhealthily and masochistically blasted away through extreme and notably unhealthy measures.

But look out world because I am gosh darn growing!!! YES I AM!!! So Today, I slept in. I put on a bikini and yes post panic attack as it barely fit over my thighs, I still left the house in it.

I know I have a lot to learn about managing my emotions and accepting them as simply such.

I know I have a long way to go to be all pure self love.

BUT I also know that I ve come along way and the fact that I can FEEL LOVE FOR MYSELF AT ALL IS TOTALLY RAD.

So yup, here s to recovery.
Here s to the gratitude I feel for it.
Here s to ALL THE FEELS.
And, Here s to knowing they are just that.

I am more than my body.
I am more than my emotions.

Yes, I am a recovery warrior ninja dork queen who is growing and ENOUGH EXACTLY AS I AM.

AND SO ARE YOU.

Yes world, SO ARE YOU. •
WE ARE ENOUGH - EXACTLY AS WE ARE.
It is your Monday reminder that YOU - just as you are - are FABULOUS!

I m having a tough body day (and note, I know I have a thin-privileged, able-privileged, beautiful bod even if I can t always feel it to be so) and some hella fierce ptsd today but I am SO MUCH MORE THAN MY BODY AND THE NEGATIVITY IN MY HEAD!

So, today, I m posting this πŸ‘†even though it is still terrifying for me to do so in honor of my second chance at life.

I am alive!
I survived 10 yeas in and out of wards.
And, for all my friends who died fighting these illnesses and do not have the privilege of treatment and survival as I did, THIS IS FOR YOU.

I dance with joy,
I dance with life,
I dance with love
for you.

And while we re here, let us remember this (myself especially)...

EVERY BODY IS A BEACH BODY!•

EVERY body is MORE than its appearance.

EVERY body is simply the vessel for the god damn fabulous selves we are.

Yes - exactly - that means
YOU ARE FABULOUS - EXACTLY AS YOU ARE.

So dear ED that is still plaguing me and dear ptsd that has me reliving darkness,
You are wrong.

I am enough.
I am whole.
I am beautiful.
And, I am sticking to this.

I am taking back my body.
I am taking back the beach.
And I am damn proud to be me - EXACTLY AS I AM.

With love, dork and so much love for this second chance at life,
Kate Speer
