05/06/20 Day 74 in quarantine: - worked more on the sacred rocking chair weaving with dad, it’s almost ready 👀 - got to make me and mum ramen for dinner! egg, dumplings and all! 🍜 - always fun to watch my l’il bro cook The Dense™️ - technically this should go in the next quarantine diary entry, but the sunrise is nice! and it’s still the same ‘day’ I guess 😅 plus birds are tweeting like crazy, nature is doing us good ☀️

Had such a good food day yesterday! ** And for me personally, a good food day isn’t always a ‘perfect’ day of eating - like sticking to my macros 100%. Coming from an ED background my relationship with food is really complicated, I go from being unable to eat food, to being unable to stop, to being unable to keep it down. And for me, it’s all in my head. So this journey for me, as much as it is about being fitter, it’s really about creating a sustainable and positive relationship with food. So many days I have to force my first meal down, because I cannot ignore the invasive thought that ‘I’m not allowed to eat’ or ‘eating = weight gain’. And I know this isn’t true, I’m learning and educating myself. But it’s always a battle. Yesterday I loved my food (stuck to my macros ) and didn’t feel like I wanted or was punishing myself. It’s a long road of ups and downs - and all your girls support helps me through it everyday x

when i was at the hospital a few months ago my doctor gave me an assignment to write 10 good things about food. i ended up writing 9 which really made me upset (probable because i have ocpd ) but the 9 reasons i came up with were surprisingly good. so i decided to share them 1-it gives me energy; while this reason is what i called back then “basic” it is very true it gives me energy to keep me moving,living, enjoying life,etc. 2-it tastes good; eating isn’t just a chore it can be enjoyable and tasty. 3-you can be creative with it/experiment with it; you can try new recipes and change them according to your taste you can have new foods for the rest of your life which is so fun. 4-it can bring people/cultures together; holidays or even just dinner together with your family brings you closer to those around you. 5-there are different flavors/textures to it; you can taste new things and textures food is never the same even if you cook the same thing it will probably still taste different. 6- you can learn about different people from it; food recipes can sometimes be carried through generations and dishes can have an interesting story behind it. 7-it can make me more focused; with food in my body i pay attention to other things because i am not starving. 8- it can be given as a sign of love,respect,appreciation; sometimes we show how much we love someone by making their favorite meal or by giving a treat which can make your bonds stronger. 9-it isn’t perfect; my favorite reason because food doesn’t have to be measured, in the perfect temperature, to be enjoyable IT IS JUST FOOD it’s not something to perfect,worry, and obsess over

☀️Day 30☀️ (old pic ) Whoo!!! One full month of recovery!!!!!!!!! 🎉 🎊💛 - Wow, it feels a lot longer than a month! I’ve changed a lot as a person from the first day til now, but hey that’s what comes with loving yourself more!💞💕 - I literally am a different person! I can see it in my journal entries, which have gone from entirely negative to lots of gratitude for being alive. My family can see it because I got my sense of humor and sarcasm back! I can see it because I look in the mirror and my first thought isn’t hatred... ...it’s just me! And you know what? I actually like me!! Some days I might not, but I like who I AM more than the body I’m IN.🥰 - Going into recovery, especially on my own, was a tough decision. And while it is hard, I didn’t expect to feel this much better after only a month. I thought it’d take years to feel anything good! But that’s just my journey, everyone’s is different. I know I’m not rid of it yet but hell yeah here’s to doing this for the rest of my life!!!!!!🎊🎉💛☀️ • • • #disorderedeating #disorderedeatingrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #foodphotography

Coming straight out of an eating disorder and expecting to love your body is unrealistic. Self love is hard. It doesn’t happen overnight. That has been hard to come to terms with. I always expected to love my body soon after starting recovery but finding self love is a process. You don’t have to go from disliking your body to immediately loving it. Don’t feel bad for it. It takes times. Right now, something you can work on is body acceptance. I tend to get stuck staring in the mirror picking out all my “flaws” and one of my favorite things to do in that situation is to thank my body. I thank my legs for letting me dance. I thank my arms for letting me pet my dogs. I thank my stomach for holding all my organs and my favorite foods. I thank my body as a whole for letting me live. This is something that helps me on bad days and I think it’s worth a try to work towards body acceptance. #recovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #recoverywarrior #edrecoverywarrior #healing #mentalhealth #mentalheathawareness #edawareness #eatingdisorderawareness #recoveryispossible #recoverysupport #eatingdisordersupport #support #mentalhealthrecovery

backwards #fdoe 5th June 2020; I decided not to turn vegetarian or vegan first. My psychiatrist told me that I need to focus on getting my period back. I’m actually back to my pre-ed weight!! I’m SOOOOO close to hitting my “healthy” weight🥺 I can’t wait to get my period back! then I can be Vegetarian or Vegan! I’m doing it not for restriction but simply because I LOVE animals and care for the environment! I honestly am so proud of myself for making it this far in recovery! I don’t sense any restriction from ed! taking a break was a great choice! I can say that my recovery journey is almost ending🥴 still kinda insecure about my body , maybe I’m just naturally flat😪 - #anorexianervosarecovery #anorexiarecover #anorexiafighter #anorexiafight #anorexiawarrior #anorexiarecoverymeal #anorexiarecovered #anarecovery #anarecovering #anawarrior #anafighter #anafight #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #edrecoverywarrior #edrecovering #edfighter #edwarrior

Here’s a picture of me feeling powerful but vulnerable because I’ve spent the last week kinda obsessed with what’s happening in the world and I forgot I have an eating disorder and it unexpectedly smacked me in the face for a second today, which is just something that will happen. #eatingdisorderrecovery

Still here. Still showing up. Still doing the treatment thing even though it’s really hard. I miss meeting in person. I miss that connection. But I’m still learning lots. I also finally found an OCD therapist, so I can target my OCD which, as I’m discovering, has a significant impact on my eating disorder. If you’re feeling tired, weary, or discouraged, I see you. This stuff isn’t easy. Keep going. Every bite taken is a victory won. . . . #food #edrecovery #pizza #antidiet #antidietculture #foodofinstagram #advice #eatingdisorderrecovery #haes #bodypositive #intuitiveeating #selfcare #bodyimage #neda #positive #hope #anorexianervosarecovery #edfighter #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #anarecovery #anafighter #php #eatingdisordertreatment

Can I just cry. And say y’all are amazing. When I realeased my book my goal was to be sell few help many. I didn’t honestly care if I made anything (follow me long enough you see I’d be free if I could and help ). My point in 6 weeks I sold so many more then Expected and heard so many stories and girls saying thank you. You are never alone. Maybe your story isn’t like mine. Maybe you don’t even Struggle with mental health. To those who do hugs you can get through this low. Know I’ll never stop sharing and helping one at a time. My story isn’t over for a reason although i tried and now I understand Gods plan for me. 📸 @redhead .countrygirl #authorsofinstagram #mystoryisntoveryet #amazonbooks @barnesandnoble @amazon #mentalhealthawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #rapesurvivor #metoo #share #breakingthestigma

VULNERABLE POST HERE.⁠ -⁠ Postpartum body shots are haaaaarrrrd. Here we go.⁠ -⁠ I use the word 'torso' when talking about midsections with myself and clients because it doesn't have the negative connotations that 'stomach' can have.⁠ -⁠ Our torsos do A LOT for us! They house most of our organs and are a platform which to express our personality through clothing. If you are a woman and experience the blessing of carrying a human being in utero-your torso also houses one of your most precious people!!⁠ -⁠ I have had the blessing of two pregnancies that culminated in the birth of two healthy girls. My torso made space for each of my BEAUTIFUL, MULTI-RACIAL girls and I could not be more grateful for it's ability. Do I have stretch marks? Duh. Is my skin looser? Absolutely. Does my torso resemble that of models? Nooope. Is it a part of my body worth celebrating, appreciating, and respecting? 100%. ⁠ -⁠ Even though posting this was difficult, truthfully speaking doing Nonjudgemental Descriptions and focusing on what my torso allows me to do is pretty easy for me. Likely because I do it nonstop!!⁠ -⁠ Double tap if you did a Nonjudgemental Description of your torso!!⁠ -⁠ #therapistsofinstagram #eatingdisordersspecialist #eatingdisordertherapist #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisordersupport #confidence #haes #allfoodsfit #loveyourself #beYOU #mentalhealth #support #selfesteem #recovery #anti -diet #effdietculture #bodypositive #postpartumbody #postpartumbelly #biracial #normalizenormalbodies #stomach #torso

BUT THEY DON’T UNDERSTAND.... This was the lie I believed for years. It kept me trapped and hidden inside the prison I had created for myself...in my mind. — I didn’t open up or share because I was ashamed and I believed that it didn’t matter if I did because no one knew what I was going through and experiencing EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. — I’ve talked about the moment I finally opened up and shared what I was going through with someone and you know what, they DIDN’T UNDERSTAND - but - they knew that and while they didn’t give me understanding, they gave me love and availability. They accepted me for WHO I was and promised to be there for me and to try to learn what I was feeling and facing, but I HAD TO SHARE. I couldn’t just expect them to have an earth shattering enlightenment by looking at me or learning I had an eating disorder. It was just as much MY RESPONSIBILITY to share and to teach and to UNDERSTAND THEM as they struggled to UNDERSTAND ME. — Right now, this world is struggling. I don’t understand what black people have suffered. I will never know the extent, but I CAN LEARN. I WANT to learn. Black people don’t know what it’s like for me to NOT UNDERSTAND, but we CAN ALL do our part to learn from one another and to LOVE one another. Change doesn’t come from riots, it comes from a revival that first begins in the heart♥️ — Here’s to living, LEARNING, and LOVING one another in this generation and the generation to come. Black lives DO matter so let’s ALL do our part, white and black, to make a change. It begins now in our own heart. It can only survive by love. 1 John 3. 🤟🏽🤟🏿🤟🏾🤟🏻 • • • • #fitness #eatingdisorderrecovery #edhealth #selflove #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #icantbreathe #underarmour #adventure #poweroflove #texas #athletics #powerofasmile #georgefloyd #justiceforgeorgefloyd #beautiful #loveeachother ❤️ #growthmindset

Night Snack ⭐️ Coffee Theme ☕️ @questeurope Quest Mocha Choc 🍫 Chip Protein Bsr and @beaniescoffee Coffee Caramel Popcorn 🍿 Flavour with Milk what a dreamy creamy snack! 😍 Was debating between this and the battle bites bar last night and since I didn’t have this one so I might as well have it for my night snack today as he says I can’t have a protein bar two days in a row? And I haven’t had a quest bar for so long yet they are one of my favourite type of protein bars! They are so unique – squidgy dents and chewy and this one is one of the best flavours ever! As it involves coffee 😉 it has a really nice strong coffee flavour with cookie crumbles and chocolate chips which you can actually taste and add a nice crunch 👌 and the cookie pieces are actually quite big and chunky and I don’t know why some people say quest bars have a funny taste as I just think they’re delicious… And put it with a coffee as I had some calories to make up so I thought it was the perfect thing to make a coffee themed snack 🎉 I could have so easily got away with not having this as the coffee wasn’t on my phone but I told my dad I needed something to make it up… I was really anxious about having another coffee as it felt really excessive and like too many liquid calories which anorexia convinces me is a waste but coffee is one of my favourite things… I haven’t had a beanies coffee and so long as for some reason it’s more challenging than a regular one ‼️? But thought I should switch it up as deep down I know I love them so went for this caramel popcorn one and it’s insanely good has a really warm buttery popcorn flavour. Such a winning combo on one of the best snacks I’ve wanted this for ages 💯 ❌ however I did really struggle to eat this as the thoughts were so loud I was so full and stuffed after my dinner and it made me feel so guilty..but I was determined not to ruin my progress as I had done really well earlier in the day just all I could think about was the calories and anorexia was convincing me I had way more than what I had calculated but I know I just have to sit with the uncomfortable feeling and fight it On a Quest to do my Best 🙏

Dinner: Quorn Sausages and Onion Gravy with Mash Potato 🥔 Green Beans and Carrots 🥕 Sausage and Mash for some pure Comfort to Smash Ana 😬 I find big hearty dinners like this really tough and after having a yoghurt with my lunch having a huge dinner like that’s not really necessary and when preparing I was so tempted to restrict the ingredients but I managed to stay strong and have the amount I had planned! #teamproperportions By having three Quorn sausages as that’s the amount I would get an IP with this mail that’s what I know I have to have even anorexia convince me to is enough as the serving size on the packet only says to but screw serving sizes! This is what I need to recover also had a huge mountain of March which was really creamy and battery which made me feel really bad and like it was so fattening but it made it super 😋 yum I love the flavour of one sausages and I was worried my dad wouldn’t be able to get any in Sainsbury’s don’t always have them but luckily he did and even though I was really anxious about this meal I did really enjoy it – you can’t beat a good sausage and mash 🙌🏻 Had it with thick bisto onion gravy which is rich in flavour and I can’t believe are used convince myself I didn’t like gravy… Anorexia was screaming that I didn’t need it as it’s an unnecessary extra and a waste of calories but it really does make this meal! ❌ I was really dreading this dinner as it’s really low in protein and high in carbohydrates compare to what are usually have and it’s way over my safe amount of carbohydrates for my dinner but I’m trying so hard not to focus on the numbers so much I’ve had this meal before and I can do it again nothing bad will happen! 🛑 I know ignoring the stupid rules is what will get me to freedom it’s just so hard 😢 But I was determined not to let my dad down Ended up having this really late as well which made me even more on edge but no excuses! I wouldn’t get a choice to eat in IP so I don’t get one now I have to do this! This portion feels massive and I feel so greedy but I know it’s what my body needs 😩 So staying strong and it’s only Ana lying to me telling me it’s too much ...EAT IT 2 BEAT it 🦋

Eating healthy is like going for a swim.😕🏊‍♀️ . . Sometimes we treat eating healthy like going for a swim. We think "oh if I just jump, and go all the way in it will be easier, then taking my time." . So that's what we do, we run towards the pool,🌊 and dive all the way in. Every part of us from our toes, to our heads are submerged in water. But as we come up for a breath of air we realized, F*** the water is really cold.😨❄ Now being uncomfortable we brace to get out of the pool.🏊‍♂️ We get out, wrap a towel around us, and say that was a mistake.😔 . And eating healthy is the same way.👆 We try to go ALL IN, to only then realize it's not easy.😧 . So let's just skip the going all in at once. and take our time! So next time instead of jumping in, get in slowly.😏 Start with getting your feet wet,👣 Let your body adjust to the temperature of the water before you go in more. Start slow. Do things like adding 1, just 1 fruit to your everyday eating. Then when you are comfortable with that, add a vegetable, or another fruit, and keep going up, till you are all the way in! You can take your time, you do not have to go ALL IN at once. 💚💚💚

02 de Junho - Dia Mundial de Conscientização de Transtornos Alimentares. #procureajudaprofissional • Eu já comi até passar mal, tão mal que fiquei de cama por não ter controle do quanto eu comia. Já comi escondida porque não queria que ninguém me visse comendo, eu sentia vergonha. Já tomei laxantes e diuréticos após as refeições. Já acordei de manhã percebendo que tinha ido até a geladeira e comido durante a noite. Já passei por muita coisa relacionada a alimentação, ao meu corpo, e eu precisei de ajuda externa pra me curar disso e pouco a pouco fui me libertando de algo que me consumia dia e noite. Se você passa por isso e sente que não está conseguindo sozinha/sozinho, por amor, peça ajuda de profissionais. Nutricionistas, médicos, terapeutas, psicólogos, autoconhecimento e o que estiver ao seu alcance para se curar disso. Isso é sério, e esses profissionais existem para te ajudar. ♥️ #transtornos #transtornosalimentares #compulsaoalimentar #peçaajuda #corpo #eatingdisorderrecovery

Here's a gentle reminder -⠀ You do not have to spend countless hours on the treadmill.⠀ You do not have to eat less than 1000 calories a day to lose weight.⠀ You do not need to follow an extreme fad diet to feel healthy.⠀ You do not have to say no to social events.⠀ ⠀ You can enjoy your favourite foods, you can go out with friends, you can live your life whilst chasing your fitness goals!⠀ Food is energy,⠀ Exercise is enjoyment,⠀ Getting fitter isn't complicated, it's very simple if you are patient enough.⠀ #healthyliving #health #eatingdisorderrecovery #strong #strongnotskinny #strength #fitness #fitnessjourney #fitnessmotivation #physique #bodypositive #healthy #lift #mentalhealth #active #fitfam #fit #fitnessgoals #fitnesslifestyle

To be honest I’m not exactly sure what to say to you all today; I already rewrote this post 6 times, and it doesn’t feel right to be smiling in the sunshine when there is so much pain in the world 🌍 what I do know is that I have learned so much the past few days, and I am prioritising educating my self over anything else✨ Like many of you I am worried, confused and mostly angry at the pain and suffering inflicted by white supremacy in our society😕 Behind the smile and closed eyes is a whole storm in my mind - remember you aren’t expected to engage in the ‘right’ conversation, or post things because others do, as long as you know in your heart you are making changes then that is enough🌿 — WAYS TO HELP: ~Diversify your feed by following a range of people ~Speak up - use your platforms to spread the word ~Don’t buy into racism - stop buying from brands who feed the system and function purely through modern slavery like high street stores ~Listen and learn - to teach you need to understand for yourself, so absorb knowledge and become a more wholesome human NETFLIX: who killed malcom X, explained: the wealth gap, 13th and so many more Please follow the hashtags for more valuable information and keep showing your support! — #blacklivesmatter #stopracism #racismisreal #nomoreracism #equality #rightsforall #showup #antiracist #vegan #veganlife #veganliving #proteinsmoothie #health #eatingdisorderrecovery #body #bodypostive #blogger

In fact, it seems as though everyone is quite pleased with the arrival of eating disorder Melissa who has taken her place. So how could I go back now? If I did, that means I failed. I failed myself, those who love me, and those who finally let me into their lives. Nobody knew what I was actually going through, really, all they saw was this A+ student athlete who was bouncing back from an injury. (no pun intended ). To them me losing weight was me taking care of myself- I was becoming “healthy”. But what these people couldn’t see was how I no longer wanted to stay awake past 7pm. What they didn’t notice was how I took every minute I could to look at my body in the locker room mirrors. What they couldn’t see was my journal filled with pages upon pages of self hatred and suicidal thoughts. They didn’t see the cuts on my body, the tears in my eyes, or the hurt in my heart. Because, who really cares about those things as long as you are skinny, right? Well I do, I care. And at the time I may have had a different answer. I may have agreed and I may have continued to believe the lies, but now I can see the distortion of which our minds project onto everything. I understand the manipulation which our eating disorders put us through, the hopelessness- the sense of failure. I know all of it. I can relate, but please believe me when I say you are so much more than an eating disorder. You have the loudest, most contagious laugh, and the warmest hugs. Your eyes get incredibly big when you see a puppy walking down the street and your face lights up when a baby passes you in a stroller. You love roller coasters but are terrified of Ferris wheels. You hate the way your throat feels after concerts, but find the soreness nothing compared to the excitement you had in the moment. Why give so much power to the eating disorder if you are already so much more. #mentalhealth #challenge #bodyimage #neda #eatingdisorderrecovery #fucktheED #nedawareness #mentalhealthawareness #anorexianervosarecovery #bodypositive #youareenough #bulimiarecovery #nedaweek #allin #bodypositivity #allsizesmatter #fatisbeautiful #youareenough #fearfood #haes

So I haven’t challenged my ED for a while....and today I did!! I saw my friend which was so lovely and she and her mum were going to have a snack and they got me one as well without asking me and I had it spontaneously! I’m not going to lie it was quite scary and I nearly backed out but I thought that If they can do it so can I and I did! I’m really proud of challenging myself as I think I’ve got quite comfortable with my ‘safe’ foods and food routines so to have it was a huge deal!! • • On that note, I’m going to challenge you to challenge your disorder or anything else that you’re struggling with 💕 you can do this. You are brave, and everything will be okay ♥️ #recoveryispossible #recoverywin #eatingdisorderrecovery #recoverychallenge

🙌🏽💊 It’s #mentalhealthawarenessmonth and before it comes to a close, I wanted to share something. • A little over a year ago, I went to my doctor convinced something was capital W Wrong. I felt my heart racing and chest pain and assumed I was on the verge of a cardiac event. I was tired all the time, couldn’t sleep through the night, I was nauseas, I was having stomach aches, I couldn’t concentrate on anything. I wrote a thousand stories in my head about what was wrong with me. I made a doctor’s appointment assuming that I was about to get a life-changing diagnosis. When I got there and told my doctor what was going on, she said “Meghan, I want you to know that I’m evaluating you for a complex medical condition but I really think this is good old anxiety and depression”. • Here’s the thing: if anyone had described to me the symptoms that I was experiencing, I could very rationally conclude that maybe this was related to mental health - hell, I had done that for myself in the past. It’s not like this is the first time I had realized I had anxiety and depression. At the time, I had been off meds for about a year and half and then had a bunch of Big Life Things happen all around the same time. On top of that, I was majorly burnt out and not taking great care of myself. • So I took my ongoing search for a therapist a little more seriously and found my current therapist. I went back on meds. I went back to yoga. I started setting more boundaries. I did the stuff I know helps. • And guess what? I feel (so so so so ) much better. I share this to normalize talking about mental illness especially as someone who works in the field. No one is immune. I strongly believe that having this experience makes me a *better* provider, not a worse one. And I want you to know that you’re not alone. You can get through this, even when it feels really intense. I hope you reach out for help and when you do, I hope you find people willing to compassionately offer a hand. Sending big love to anyone dealing with this, especially right now 💛 And remember that there’s no shame in medication. There’s no shame in taking medication. And there’s no shame in mental illness ✨ • 📷: @hardstark

😬 i used to be so scared to smile before i had braces. Everyone my age was getting them, except me. I had to wait so long for it and it did cost a lot of money. My teeth were crooked and i knew that if i ever wanted to do acting on a professional level it would be very hard to pursue that. So, I took my future into my own hands and decided to go to another orthodontist myself. One week later (! ) I had my braces. And after 2,5 years my teeth were straight. When i was twelve, my front tooth finally got through after almost a year. So the insecurities of missing a front tooth and having crooked front teeth after, have then really shaped me as a person. 😪 I am scared sometimes that i'll wake up and have my teeth back in their old position. It's such a stupid thought and it will not happen. But once insecurities root deep, it's hard to overcome them. I remember having learnt myself to keep my hand in front of my mouth every time i had to laugh out loud, just so i could hide my smile from people. It took me a long time to get used to not having to do that anymore and i have to say, a lot of jealousy and sadness have gone away since i lost that insecurity. 🙄 But then new insecurities begin. It''s only when we face them and acknowledge them that we can work on it 💕 • • #insecurities #bodyawareness #mentalhealthawareness #recovery #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexianervosarecovery #depressionawareness #bodyinsecurities #mentalhealthtips
