What are you focusing on this Easter? 
We are the ones in charge of where our energy and focus goes, so where does your mind go during this holiday? 
Are you THINKING about the chocolate you are eating, or are you actually ENJOYING it, and focusing on time with family and friends? 
Is your brain coming up with 101 reasons why chocolate is bad, or are you telling yourself that NO foods are BAD, and you are ALLOWED to eat without any guilt?

I get it. Easter can be an extremely difficult holiday for those with an eating disorder, but can you let today be the day you will challenge those thoughts that are depriving you of a full life? 
One step at a time, my dear. Let today be the day you try something new that goes against the ED’s orders. Maybe today is the day to start breaking the rules and finding that freedom you deserve. ✨

Here’s your reminder that it’s normal to eat more than normal on easter and you do NOT have to compensate in any way, shape, or form. Don’t beat yourself up for enjoying yourself and bonding with family or friends over food. You 👏 deserve 👏 nice 👏 things 👏

Hello :) My name’s Holly.  About 2 and a half years ago, I was diagnosed with Orthorexia. For the past few years I’ve been dealing with ED’s shit and well... I’m fed up (no pun intended 😉) after being hospitalized 3 times I finally realized that life with an ED sucks ass. I’m going to do my best at recovery and share all my ups and downs ( there’s going to be MANY downs ). Here I go I guess

Heading out to Litchfield for swimming with my man and rocking the bikini look again!
NSV that never gets old despite eating all the brioche hot cross buns this weekend (the only ones I can eat without pain thank you Woolworths!!) is being comfortable in my own skin in a bikini!
Happy Easter!

Even when your mind says you can’t do recovery. Even when you have crippling anxiety and don’t know how you’re going to make it through the next ten minutes. Even when you’ve had a hard day, have fallen down, and don’t know how to pick yourself back up.
__
You can do this, don’t forget that! One tiny step in front of the other.

I still have bad body image days. I still get caught up judging my hair, skin, and various parts. I know by now that I feel more critical of my outer appearance when I’m feeling vulnerable or insecure about something (usually something deeper than looks). But no matter how 💥woke someone is, the messaging is still all around us. ⠀
⠀
Undoing a lifetime of conditioning is a long, messy process that may never be fully complete. ⠀
⠀
👏🏽 Ten times out of ten, the statement above is what keeps me going on those loud inner-critic days.⠀
⠀
I’m trying to leave the world a more compassionate place than I found it. I want it to be safe and welcoming for ALL people. That mission has to start 👉🏽internally👈🏽 with emphasis on what I do, not how I look.⠀
⠀
Gimme a 🎉 if you’re with me! Go crush it this weekend! ⠀

Eat that grilled cheese like it’s nobody’s business... because it IS nobody’s business!
// Recently I had someone comment on something I was eating, how it was gross and greasy, and how could I eat something that bad for me? It bothered me for 3 days, but I couldn’t figure out why. Turns out, it’s because I was so used to telling myself that whenever I ate ANYTHING, that hearing it from someone else felt awful. But!! The upside of that, was that it threw me off because I have been so good with intuitive eating and respecting my body, that I haven’t had that kind of narrative in my head for a while!! (Which I think is something to be proud of!)
//
On the other side of this, if you have a friend that you KNOW has eating issues, don’t say anything about how/what/why/how much they’re eating. It’s extremely triggering and just so incredibly unnecessary. For that matter, don’t comment on anyone’s food. Keep that shit to yourself, and maybe consider WHY you’re even thinking about it. ;) #thatcheesepulltho

°MY EATING DISORDER SERVED ME A PURPOSE° 💖 - It taught me that, even though you are hurt, you don't need to hurt others. 💖 - It taught me the importance of giving comfort and love to everyone without expecting anything in return (to this little girl, for example). 💖 - It taught me how not to reflect on trauma in the sense of "that was the worst thing in my life", but reflect on it with appreciation. 
Oh, my sweet past self, how much I appreciate what you've made out of me! ❤

The world profits from our inability to see our divine unique perfection. What would happen to the $60 billion diet industry, and the $250 billion beauty industry, or the $44 billion the pharmaceutical industry makes on antidepressant and antianxiety medication through medicalizing the natural response to living in a sick society. Obsessively question what you do and why you do it. The only way to be free is to be brave enough to see the truth. We are all playing the game.

The Accuracy of this though! .

While we #grow through stuff, it very well may seem like the end of the world. . && while in the grand scheme it may not be- you can’t take away that in that moment it seems like everything.
.

A #grounding skill I like to use when this happens is remind myself, will this matter to me 5 years from now?
.

Typically the answer is no, and then you work from that point. .

It’s not about negating the sentiment something gives you, it’s about reacting through your reason, not emotion. Both often get very skewed.
.

#BeCurious to what comes up for you the next time you go into that mode. .

What are some #groundingskills you like to use when you notice this type of thinking?

SOCIAL MEDIA SNAKE OIL

Picture on the left was 6AM
Picture on the right was 10AM after a 1 Hour workout.
I'm the same human, the same weight, the same amount of body fat. 
It isn't hard to use lighting, posture and a pump to sell a cookie cutter program promising immediate gains, a detox supplement selling miracle fat loss, or any other fad to weak and naive young people who just want to be healthy, and end up in a world of lies, self doubt, body dysmorphia and self hatred.

Don't let them, question everyone, seek professional help, take control of your own needs.

Fell back into some old habits today...
Woke up super early and was hungry but all I had was a nurtigrain bar and some coffee bc I was going with friends later and I wasn't sure weather to eat or not(even though we met at 1)  first mistake-restricted breakfast. Second mistake is I decided not eat lunch. Again we were meeting up at 1 and I thought I shouldn't eat anything and save room to compensate. Ended up so hungry by 12 and ate a granola bar. Still hungry. So finally we got to the place and I got a less than filling, not so great, overpriced smoothie bowl. I was literally shaking and my hands turned purple while eating bc I deprived my body all day from protein and propee nutrients. Came home and started to get hungry again but started to cry bc I was scared to continue to eat. By 5:30 I was starving. I felt so sick I was so hungry. Ate a spoonful of pb for the protein but finally went out and ate Chinese for dinner. Ate a ton(to me) and feel so guilty and disappointed at how I ate today. I did not eat nearly enough. I need to learn how to eat normal and not restrict before or after to meals to "compensate" for it. I will do better tomorrow.  With my moms help(had a meltdown in front of her earlier and she helped me eat something) I am going to start eating 3 full sized meals and at least 1 snack every day. Not just 2 small meals, ans decent sized one and a small snack like I've been doing. Becase I ended feeling worse and more sick when I didn't eat then when I eat. And I wasted a great conversation with my friend bc I was shaky:( setbacks are apart of recovery. They just push me to try harder

Activism of any kind can feel like you're one voice shouting in the middle of Times Square, desperately hoping someone not only hears, but actually listens. Well, @hellmannsmayonnaise heard and listened to me recently and I feel like I must give them credit for being not only receptive, but for taking immediate action and changing how they worded the recipe they recently posted for fried deviled eggs.

Originally the post described the eggs in a way that moralized food. I'm really, really struggling right now with my eating disorder behaviors. I know I'm not at all alone in this. So, I decided to speak up. I honestly expected no response at all... Let alone action.

So, those of you fighting against toxic diet culture, just know... Sometimes your voice is heard. And it's always needed!

Thank you, Hellman's, for handling this with grace and kindness.

P. S. I really want to try a fried deviled egg now. 😁😂 #socialactivism #eatingdisorderawareness #hellmans #bestfoods #grateful #keepfighting #dietculturesucks #warrior #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #constantvigilance

What does your body do that you can be grateful for? Your body is the housing to your soul, your body allows you to hug, smile, love, feel, touch, see, hear, express emotion and so much more. Our perception of our body is so more than what we see on the outside, it’s much more than an image. Learning to love yourself for all that you can do will allow you to have self worth and self acceptance #eatingdissorder #eatingdisorderhelp #eatingdisordersupport #eachtotheirownjourney #eatingdisorderwarrior #eatingdisorderawareness #anorexiarecovery #anorexiafighter #bulimiarecovery #bingeeatingdisorderrecovery #arfidrecovery #orthorexiarecovery #osfedrecovery #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #bodyimage #selflove #selfacceptance #grateful #soul #stopthestigma

I feel it’s important to share my experience during this time because a lot of people do not understand eating disorders.
*

I’ve been attending a treatment center for a few weeks now and recently stepped up to full time attendance; 5x a week, 8-10 hours a day.
* 
I am very fortunate for this opportunity and would like to share my experience. My goal is to bring awareness to an illness that is still not understood by the public, media and medical professionals. I’m learning a lot and still uncovering traumas that I never knew existed.

Eating disorders are so much more than weight. For the first time in years, I’m having 3 complete meals and snacks. ED is very uncomfortable and having a shit attack because I’m unlearning everything he’s taught me about food and nutrition

I hope everyone has had a good day. Last night was a rough night. I was laying next to my love and trying to sleep. I began to cry. I was thinking about when the next time someone I love was going to die. It hurt. A few minutes later, I was thinking about writing my wedding vows. It was waves of overwhelming emotions that ranged from extremely depressed, elated, and extremely anxious. Feel free to share something on your mind either in the comments or in my direct messages! You are loved. #mentalillness #eatingdisorderawareness #bpdawareness #borderlinepersonalitydisorderrecovery #bpd #borderlineandloved #borderline #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonalitydisorderawareness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth

Being poor is like being the black plague
In California, where you're trash if you aren't paid
The ridicule will leave a permanent ♥️ stain
My sister wore a Thriller jacket into the fourth grade
But we stayed happy most of the time
I kept music and my little cousins on my mind

Easter is a time for family, friends, love, laughter, chocolate & hot cross buns. 🍫🐣 But it can also be an incredibly difficult holiday for someone who suffers with an eating disorder. Instead of being about all those amazing things it is taken over by anxiety, fear & an overwhelming amount of ed thoughts. So for those suffering know that it’s okay not to reach unrealistic expectations on this day. Instead be kind to yourself & celebrate the “small” wins. Whether that be eating an egg, going to a social event, saying yes to a hot cross bun or simply just being present around your loved ones. And remember Easter won’t feel like this forever because you are working towards a lifetime of freedom. 🦋

Eating foods that satisfy your soul in a world that tells you to continuously restrict or eliminate them is the single greatest act of self-care against diet culture.
.
When you decide to change the story you tell yourself around food by removing moral value labels such as 'good' or 'bad', you start to heal your relationship with your body.
.
If today is the first time you're allowing yourself some chocolate, a hot cross bun, or something else you previously avoided and it feels hard or uncomfortable, know that is totally ok.
.
Breaking down your food rules and allowing yourself unconditional permission to eat is a conscious and continuous learning process.
.
Just think of the thought and effort required when you first learned how to drive.
.
I don't know about you, but parallel parking was super awkward and hard! Challenging your thoughts around food can feel much the same, but as you practice over time it becomes easier and almost second nature.
.
Those new neural pathways become your default.
.
You can nail that parallel park, or rock up to a cafe, order and eat exactly what you feel like without guilt.
.
I hope today brings you a chance to practice making peace with food and enjoying every bite. Happy Easter❤️

Okay yummmmm. These are so good. Roasted chickpeas 😍 they taste a lot like salted peanuts but crunchier. There's a decent amount of protein and fiber per serving too. Highly recommend

So, todays food was a bit of a struggle but we managed it 👌 I forgot to take a photo but I finished the day with tea and 2 biscuits too.. Today has been a day of entirely mixed emotions and honestly, I feel exhausted from it all. My head is an absolute mess and I feel beyond isolated.

Hit with so many realisations today and I've never been more determined to grab my life back. I am petrified but I cant live like this anymore. 
I miss my life, I miss being me. I cant wait to love myself unconditionally and finally realise that yes, my life is worth the fight.

MORE TOAST 😫😫 lunch today... I had this around 12:30pm today and definitely struggled a LOT !! 😰😰 Bread is really scary to me because it’s a processed food + higher calorie when paired with butter 🤢 I enjoy the taste which also scares me because it makes me want more but my ed freaks out at me whenever I want more food than I’m forced to have... 😞 hopefully I’ll be able to truly enjoy any food I want without worrying about how much I’m able to have of it 💕
3 slice toast

Our perspective is a choice.
⁣
When I saw this picture of myself, I reverted back to an old pattern.  I immediately judged my thighs, cellulite, and stomach. I felt embarrassed that I looked this way. ⁣
⁣
While I wish those thoughts weren’t my initial reaction, I’m committed to welcoming them as they arise: to sit with and examine them, no matter how uncomfortable. I accept that this negative internal dialogue exists because I ALLOWED IT to be my normal thought pattern for far too long. I can’t fault my mind for reverting back to what’s comfortable and familiar. ⁣
⁣
When I experience my thoughts veer down what I call "the shame hole", alarms 🚨 start going off.  Life is too damn short to talk shit about myself!  All it takes is a logical reminder to pull me back to reality.  In this case, I sat down and asked myself, ⁣
⁣
"What am I gaining from thinking about my body this way?"⁣
⁣
Answer: not a DAMN thing.⁣
⁣ ⁣
The thing about recovery/ healing/ growth is that old thought patterns and habits don't just disappear overnight.  It takes deliberate self-love, presence, and dedication to instill new, healthier patterns.  And the work is 100% worth it.⁣
⁣
So, what do I really see in this photo? ⁣
A badass 33-year-old at mile 26 of the Boston marathon.  A pair of strong, beautiful legs that have some cellulite, but fuck it!  Enjoying beer and the occasional cookie means far more to me than obsessing over every calorie and dimple.⁣

I felt embarrassed that I looked this way. ⁣ ⁣ While I wish those thoughts weren’t my initial reaction, I’m committed to welcoming them as they arise: to sit with and examine them, no matter how uncomfortable. I accept that this negative internal dialogue exists because I ALLOWED IT to be my normal thought pattern for far too long. I can’t fault my mind for reverting back to what’s comfortable and familiar. ⁣ ⁣ When I experience my thoughts veer down what I call "the shame hole", alarms start going off. Life is too damn short to talk shit about myself! All it takes is a logical reminder to pull me back to reality. In this case, I sat down and asked myself, ⁣ ⁣ "What am I gaining from thinking about my body this way?"⁣ ⁣ Answer: not a DAMN thing.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ The thing about recovery/ healing/ growth is that old thought patterns and habits don't just disappear overnight. It takes deliberate self-love, presence, and dedication to instill new, healthier patterns. And the work is 100% worth it.⁣ ⁣ So, what do I really see in this photo? ⁣ A badass 33-year-old at mile 26 of the Boston marathon. A pair of strong, beautiful legs that have some cellulite, but fuck it! Enjoying beer and the occasional cookie means far more to me than obsessing over every calorie and dimple.⁣ - 8 hours ago

Weekend brunch - ebelskiver (Danish filled pancakes) with sausages, fruit, Greek-style almond milk yoghurt, and maple syrup. All vegan, all so so good. * This week has been really tough. My team from EDIOP treatment thinks I am not working hard enough to stay in recovery and tbh they are right. I am so ambivalent: I want recovery but no weight gain. I want freedom to eat and not over exercise but I want to lose weight. I don’t make any sense, even to myself. * The depression has been real too. Very weepy, exhausted, no energy or interest in anything. Dragging myself through each day, achieving so much but feeling so empty. Selecting the physically most punishing work - hello! to two full days of landscaping with rocks and gravel in the midday sun; how are ya doing? to sunburn, sweat, and lightheadedness) - and not eating enough to sustain myself because hey, I don’t deserve it. * But today I just woke up feeling better. The blanket of depression had lifted enough that I could peek out from under one corner of it and see some light. Avoiding mirrors and anything else that could be a trigger, I dressed in comfy clothes (nothing tight) and made this brunch. We all shared them - My Beloved had a mounding big plate, and my pups got a couple each too. * And brunch was a success. No-one died. The sky did not fall. I didn’t balloon to the size of the Goodyear blimp. * OK, the anxiety about weight change is there. But so is the hope that I can still turn this around and have the team believe in me again. * And believe in myself too. Happy Weekend, guys! 💜 #anorexiaproblems #anorexiarecover #anorexianervosarecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #nourishtoflourish #eatingdisorderawareness #anorexiasucks #veganeatingdisorderrecovery

When i was in the depths of my eating disorder, i spent all of my time trying to shrink myself.  Trying to become smaller. Quieter. Less sensitive. Less opinionated. Less needy. Less me. Because i didn’t want to be a burden. I didn’t want to be too much, or push people away. I wanted people to like me. I wanted to be valued, and listened to. I wanted to be wanted. So during that time, i sacrificed myself for the sake of making other people happy. 
But one day, i decided i’m tired of struggling, and i’m done shrinking. It’s not my job to change who i am in order to become somebody else’s idea of a worthwhile human being. I decided i was going to voice my opinion, and be myself, and i didn’t care what others thought of me.  Yet, as i recovered from my eating disorder, i grew. I grew as a human being. I became much more aware of my strengths and weaknesses, my own needs, and desires, and concerns, as well as those for others. And that’s really the best part of recovery. Getting to be the silly boy with whom someone can laugh with, and confide a painful struggle. I have developed such an unconditional love for others that it’s teaching me to accept and forgive my own flaws in the process. The knowledge that i’ve been able to pull myself out of such an ordeal, and throw myself back into life at full speed has taught me all i will ever need to know about myself.

I don’t know what tomorrow will bring, but i know i can learn from it, grow from it, and still find light and laughter in even the darkest of circumstances.

~Update~

I’m doing pretty good today. I had a lazy morning, which was good. I caught up on some homework, watched the latest episode of “The Act” on Hulu, which was sooo good, and of coarse, ate really well. I also went to tutoring today, which was boring, but i keep telling myself it’s for the best. Body image and mood have been pretty good today too. I feel a bit insecure about the weight i have put on, and worried about the amount of weight i have to still put on, but i know that if i want to be healthy, that’s what what i have to do. Nothing much is going on around here. It’s been a bit boring the past couple days, but it’s a hell of a lot better than being in school. Anyways, hope everyone is doing well, and fighting as hard as they can to beat their eating disorder. Hope everyone has a relaxing break, and stay strong!

Things change. 
Change can be terrifying. 
Change isn’t always a bad thing.
Recovery is a process of changing. 
One day, we might be able to go a day without using behaviours we’d rather not. Other days we might go two, or three. 
Then there are the lapses, and we feel like we’re back to square one. 
And then we pick up from wherever we left off, because hitting a bump in that road does not mean we cannot celebrate what progress we have made. 
This is a good thing, and always will be. 
Change can be good.

Easter weekend can be a hard one for so many is.
It may be down to pressure to be ‘normal’ and eat out of your comfort zone, the opportunity to binge may be much larger, routines may be changed etc...
But no matter how hard things get, remember that the eating disorder will NOT help you get through it. 
It may taunt you and trick you into believing it’ll make it less stressful , but in the long run the only thing that will come from eating disorder behaviours.... is ultimately death.
Choose life - choose joy - choose YOU

The beauty, diet and fashion industries are all very profitable and marketing teams know exactly how to grab our attention and sell products off the idea that you aren’t pretty enough, thin enough or worthy enough.⠀
.⠀
Many advertisers still believe that only thin models sell products and that airbrushing/photoshopping is necessary. The message they are relaying is that in order to be beautiful, you must be skinny and/or flawless. Unfortunately we are “buying” into this. What they are doing is creating insecurities in real women.⠀
.⠀
Many women, and now we are hearing that more and more men, struggle with their body image and self-esteem. Obviously some people feel the pressure from the media more than others. Teenagers, in particular, seem to be feeling enormous pressure to fit in and comply with what the fashion and beauty culture is illustrating.⠀
.⠀
We are not saying that all people with eating disorders and other disorders related to body image have been negatively affected by the media but this may often be a contributing factor. The media is, in part, responsible for several health and psychological issues in today’s society.⠀

Poco maquillaje, mucho maquillaje, al natural..
Muchas veces admiramos a las personas por su apariencia y decimos “yo quiero verme como tal persona, quisiera tener su piel”, para terminar criticando nuestra apariencia después.
El de la primera imagen es mi maquillaje diario, si es cierto, es poco maquillaje.. pero sigue siendo maquillaje.
La segunda foto soy yo, al natural, con ojeras, cejas despeinadas, Talvez uno que otro punto negro y despeinada jajajajaja.
.
.
El punto de esto es decirles que ninguno de nosotros debe compararse con alguien más o querer ser igual a alguien más.
.
.
Por mucho tiempo yo creía que si yo no usaba maquillaje me iba a ver horrible (y pues puede ser que no me miro de lo más decente pero eso no me hace mejor o peor persona).
Luego aprendí que cada quien elije hacer lo que más le gusta... si usar maquillaje te hace sentir bien, úsalo. Si no usar maquillaje te hace sentir bien, no uses. Si maquillarte de forma natural te hace sentir bien, maquíllate de forma natural. Y si te gustan las 3 cosas o por falta de tiempo no te maquillas, no hay problema.
.
.
Lo importante es darnos nuestra de que nuestra imagen no define nuestro valor y capacidad como persona.
Natural o con maquillaje cada quien es dueño de su vida y su cuerpo.
Así que el criticar o compararse no es válido en ningún motivo 🥰.
Véanse al espejo y aprecien su cuerpo, su cara y su vida ♥️ #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #saludmental #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthblogger #depressionhelp #depressionrecocery #anxietyawareness #anxietyhelp #socialmedia #socialmediabreak #selflove #selfcare #bodypositive #bodypositivity #bopo

SAY NO TO DIETS AND WEIGHT LOSS

Our health care system and society as a whole believe in a weight- centric approach to health; loosely meaning that in order to be healthy our bodies must conform to a narrow range of 'normal' weights. There are many downsides to this weight- centric approach, the following being just a fraction of these:
---
* Approximately 75% of women have previously or are currently exhibiting signs of disordered eating
---
* A study in 5- year- old girls found that 34% where already restricting their food intake
---
* Weight cycling (yo yo dieting) is the most common result of focussed attention to weight
---
* 88% of people in bigger bodies report being stigmatized because of their size (weight stigma), e.g. bullying, teasing, social exclusion by family and friends

Consequences of weight stigma are:
---
*Poor body image
---
*Low self-esteem and confidence
---
*Higher risk of disordered eating and eating disorders
---
*Depression and anxiety
---
*Avoidance of medical care and exercise
---
🌭🌮🌯🌽🌾🍄🍅🍆🍇🍫🍬🍭

I don't believe in DIETING. We should enjoy our food and in another post I will explain THE NON - DIET DIET I follow. 
Stop restricting YOURSELF, stay HEALTHY and enjoy YOUR life!

Happy Saturday ❤️
