At one time or another, I've felt incredibly frustrated with my body. In fact, I have despised it, both in terms of the way it functions and the way it looks. Why should I take care of my body, it doesn't do anything I ask it to? I've known for a long time that I needed to change my exercise and eating habits, but I couldn't see the point. I despised my body, it felt easier to ignore its needs, to neglect it, to harm it. Then I came to a realisation. My body may not be perfect, but it's the only one I've got. Your body is the only one you've got. Harming it is not going to change the way it looks, or the way it functions. By taking care of your body you can help to improve some of your symptoms. There is also a proven link between exercise and body confidence. I'm not suggesting that you all get out and run, running may not be the most appropriate form of exercise, but something will be. Talk to your doctors about what they would recommend.
Your body is incredibly valuable. It may not be perfect, but nor is anyone else's. You need to take care of it. Exercise, eat well, follow your doctors instructions. Please don't do anything which is deliberately harmful to your body. This will be harmful to your soul. Caring for your body means caring for your soul, and this is one of the best things you can do for yourself.
