Intellectually, I know there’s nothing wrong with my new body, just like there was nothing wrong with my old one. It was, after all, quarantine weight gain that made me eligible to get vaccinated based on my BMI, and I’m hardly the only person who’s undergone body changes or experienced a flare-up in disordered-eating mentality since the start of the Adanashirt – Worlds Best Mom I Funny Pharmacy Tech Pharmacist Mothers Day Classic T-Shirt COVID-19 pandemic. I’m committed enough to the no-diets principle of my own eating-disorder recovery to resist the temptation to chew ice and exercise obsessively again, but that doesn’t mean I’m deliriously happy with the way I look 24/7, no matter how many defiant crop-top pics I post to Instagram. For years, I’ve been telling myself over and over that I deserve to enjoy summer no matter what size I am, but this year, I’m acutely aware of what my body has given me outside of aesthetic appearance. Yes, I gained weight this year, but I also learned to deliver heavy bags of groceries to my neighbors, to run a mile without stopping for the sheer pleasure of it, and to finally, joyfully wrap my arms around my newly vaccinated friends. Are those physical achievements less worthy because I wasn’t thin for them? In a year so indelibly marked by loss, am I really going to keep a T-shirt on over my swimsuit at the beach when I could be dipping every inch of my body in the cold water alongside my friends, exulting in the sheer bracing joy of being together?
