my name is ashley and this is my journey.


I am 20 years old and a junior in college. for as long as i can remember, i have always hated my body. i have been restricting and over-exercising since i was a little girl. and although it will always be a part of me, it doesn't control my life anymore. if i have to obsess over my body, i'm determined to do it in a healthy way. i made this tumblr to inspire myself as well as others. i hope i can inspire other people to take charge of their lives and accept their own beauty. i want to use this to leave a positive imprint in the lives of others. because after all, we are all in this together.


height: 5'3"
hw: 145
lw: 96 (unhealthy ed weight)
sw: 137
cw: no longer weighing myself
ugw: a healthy and happy girl with abs :)

The thing I’m most afraid of is me. Of not knowing what I’m going to do. Of not knowing what I’m doing right now. Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 (via larmoyante)
