    This week, I'm sharing a piece from Anna Kavaliunas. She wrote this essay in the midst of a big transition in her life, as you'll see. So often, we feel the need to run and hide from our missteps or willfully ignore them, but stories like this show how important it is to fully acknowledge our pasts, even (or especially) when they are painful. Click through to read Anna's story. — KM


    The Anti-Diet Project
    is an ongoing series about intuitive eating, rational fitness, and body positivity. You can follow Kelsey's journey on Twitter and Instagram at @mskelseymiller or #antidietproject (hashtag your own Ant-Diet moments, too!). Curious about how it all got started? Check out the whole column, right here. Got your own story to tell? Send me a pitch at kelsey.miller@refinery29.com. If you just want to say hi, that's cool, too.
