Женщина перестала гнаться за худобой и… стала пышкой

Сума Джейн Дарк, 32-летняя жительница США, когда-то страдала от булимии — патологически повышенного чувства голода. И очень скоро превратилась в пышную девушку. Правда, ничуть об этом не жалеет.

Наоборот, она гордится своим «большим» телом настолько, что ведет в Инстаграм личный блог. В нем с большим желанием показывает свои пикантные фотографии и рассказывает про веганство и бодипозитив.

Officially found my favorite summer outfit! One of the most frustrating things about plus size fashion is having to wait for cute trends to trickle through, especially if you’re above a size 22. I’m a size 26, sometimes 28 depending on the piece, and one thing I have been *crying out for* is the perfect button through midi skirt in quality fabric and neutral colors. I’m soooo glad I finally found this one! I can’t even tell you how many pretender skirts I bought trying to get a similar look and fit. This isn’t even sponsored, I just had to tell y’all that this skirt is 100% the best thing I’ve purchased all year. I am so glad that more and more brands are realizing that plus size shoppers don’t want weird approximations to style- we literally just want the exact same options as our smaller friends! Imo this look would be adorable on anybody of any size. ❤️🙌 . . What trends are you searching for in plus? Anything you can’t wait to find a great option for? . . #plussizestyle #plussizestylewatch #plussizefashionblogger #redhairstyle #size26style #stylehasnosize #boldandcurvy

Когда Суме было 11 лет, она много времени посвящала спортивным танцам и гимнастике с плаванием. Но от лишнего веса не могла избавиться. Ей было стыдно перед ровесниками. Она вынуждена была терпеть укоры родителей, которые каждым летом отправляли очень упитанную дочь в специальный лагерь для похудения.

Сума мучилась от изнурительных диет, постоянно старалась поменьше есть. Даже пила медпрепараты и чуть ли не жила на спортивной площадке и в зале.

Доходило до того, что девочка ела, но затем сама вызывала рвоту, только чтобы не набрать несколько лишних кило. Итог был один: она приобрела на нервной почве булимию.

Make sure you’re taking the time to appreciate the sweet things. The little happy moments, the meet cutes, the excellent snacks, the way the light hits your favorite flower. The Universe sends us thousands of tiny love notes every single day. Life isn’t just about the big moments- they’re rare in comparison to how we spend most of our time here. Don’t spend too much time stressing out that you haven’t had enough of them or that they aren’t happening as quickly as you want them to. Center yourself, be present. If you stop and pay attention, you’re already en route to what you’ve been asking for- the real question is have you been asking for the right things? The things that really make your heart light up? The Universe wants to give us magic. She sends us reminders of her power every minute. We just have to have the courage to see her and say “Ok, I’m listening. I’m ready.” ❤️ Anyone feel me? What tiny signs have you been drawn to lately that you need some encouragement to pursue? . . . . #selflove #personaldevelopment #selflovejourney #plussizeblog #plussizelife #bestlife #summerstyle

Лишь тогда Джейн Дарк поняла, что ни ее невероятное желание похудеть, ни строжайшие диеты, ни изнурение от занятий спортом не изменят ее жизнь к лучшему. Достаточно одного: просто принять себя и свое тела таким, каким оно есть.

Idk if y’all read that hateful article about @nike ‘s beautiful new plus size mannequin, but I’ll save you the time if you haven’t. It was a lazy essay regurgitating the same tired stereotypes that larger people have heard all of their lives. . . Who here grew up fat and literally nothing they did was good enough? Don’t exercise? “You’re lazy!” Exercise? “Nobody wants to see that!” Who else was told from childhood that they were “gonna die young” even though there was nothing wrong with them? How did that impact your life? Did you have trouble planning for your future? Do you panic every single time you have a minor illness? Are you afraid of your body, your personality, your dreams? . . The world is changing. People are waking up. People like the writer of that essay (who is herself a fat person- come on!) are dinosaurs. The rest of us are burning up the sky, coming right for their hate-filled world. People of all sizes deserve to enjoy their lives. We should all be able to see representations of our humanity in stores, in media, what have you. Evolution is a good thing! 🙌 . . . . #plusfashion #plussizetravel #bodypos #bodyposi #bodypositivemovement #nikeplussize #plussizeathlete #healthateverysize #selflovetips

Когда Сума познакомилась со своими братьями и сестрами «по несчастью», то начала создавать группы для психологической поддержки таких людей. Читала посты блогеров-бодипозитивистов и потом сама присоединилась к ним.

Сначала ей трудно было преодолеть смущение, поэтому она публиковала только селфи. Но потом стала равнодушна к тому, что о ней скажут, и показывала свои фото в полный рост.

This photo was taken moments after a sparrow flew into my hair! 😂 I love birds! I’ve raised and rescued birds since I was little. Several years ago, I raised a flock of hens from chicks, and spent hours every day cuddling with them, playing games with them, and getting to know them. It was so cool how they each had such big and different personalities. I could always tell who was chattering in the yard because their voices were all so unique. They’d follow me around everywhere, even fly into the house when the windows were open, just to hang out. I loved them with every ounce of my heart, they were my babies. They would fly into my arms, hop into my luggage, never miss a chance to preen my hair or give me little beak swipes against my cheeks. . . I’ve raised and rescued so many animals in my life. I think about motherhood often, because as someone with PCOS, I’m not sure if I’ll ever have human kids of my own. It makes me super sad sometimes, but most times, I just feel super grateful for all the experiences of motherhood I have had- all the magical, beautiful, connections that I’ve had with animals. I’ve been “mama” all my life. Since I was a kid, stray dogs would always find me, wounded birds too. Maybe that’s my path in this life- being “mama” for all the sweet creatures that deserve to be loved as unique beings, not as objects or possessions. My connections with animals bring me so much joy- maybe that’s what parenthood is supposed to look like for me. ❤️ How do you feel about parenthood? Do you have or want kids? . . . . #plussizestylewatch #andigetdressed #plussizeblog #plusblogger #plussizebloggers #veganblogger #vegansofig

Суме не удалось избавиться от пищевого расстройства. Но, несмотря на это, она с гордостью говорит, что у нее 30-й размер одежды (XXXXL). Она не испытывает неудобства от того, что одевает открытые купальники, а также джинсы скинни и мини-юбочки.

Let’s talk a little bit about jealousy. I used to struggle with it *hard*. I think everyone probably does to some extent or another, but growing up marginalized doesn’t help. It’s really easy to feel ~a way~ when people who you perceive to have somehow risen above the waters you feel trapped in sail right by without so much as a wave. It becomes about comparison. Then it becomes about an infinite number of toxic narratives that we feed ourselves every single time we see someone else with what we want to have, looking how we want to look, doing what we want to do. . I had a gentle cosmic nudge several years ago. I was friends with a woman who was (is!) sooo beautiful, very successful, always going around the world, etc. I had the hardest time feeling happy for her without internally being like “😒!” And I hated having those thoughts. They were not in alignment with my beliefs at all. . . One day we went to a Xmas party together. She disappeared for a bit and I found her crying in the bathroom. She told me that a friend had given her “advice” that basically equated to her giving up, disguised as “protecting her” from failure. I immediately recognized it for what it really was. They were so jealous of her that they wanted her to hide, to shrink, to hurt. I was disgusted. It became so clear to me what jealousy really is. . It’s so easy to hurt people when you’re holding shitty feelings around comparison, or weaponizing jealousy in your interactions without realizing it. So I got real. When I feel jealous now, I ask myself- what’s this feeling showing me? Have I been slacking off? Have I not been taking great care of myself? How can I follow this to its real root and release it? It can be hard to pivot at first, but it is *worth it*! The funny thing is, releasing those negative reactions actually makes more energetic room to receive what you wanted to begin with! It’s wild how much more beautiful you feel when you’re not comparing yourself to others. How much you can get done following your heart vs running a fake race with your friends. How good being *truly* happy for other people’s beauty/success/whatever feels. . . Anyone else ever struggle with jealousy? ❤️

Девушка предпочитает соединять разные яркие цвета и принты, фактуры. Смело экспериментирует со всевозможными фасонами.

Сума Джейн Дарк очень надеется, что ее пример вдохновит людей, похожих на нее, и они перестанут стесняться самих себя.
