Let's Talk About ED

This is a long over-due collection of articles, pictures, news coverage, websites, thoughts, comments, and anything in between that I have accumulated that relates to eating disorders, body image, or what I find interesting enough to share.

Want to ask me something? Anything? Need to talk? Want to make a friend?

Hey.

fitchris25:

It’s okay to eat over your daily intake goal. Hell, it’s okay to triple it!!

But don’t eat less the next day.

Your body CAN handle extra calories. It will keep your metabolism up and firing.

So don’t worry. You had your big day, now go back to eating clean and healthy and ENOUGH like you usually do.

You are a star.

If you’re having to count calories, restrict food and/or exercise purely to “keep your weight down” and allay anxieties about becoming “too big”, then the weight that you’re at is almost definitely not right for your body. Breathe. Let your body be. It’s fine just how it was before; it’s always fine. All bodies are fine, even yours. It can be hard to accept that sometimes, but it’s true. Not accepting this will only lead to compulsion, misery, low self-esteem and, ultimately, an eating disorder. Breathe. Let your body be.

  • it’s okay for you to like skinny girls
  • it’s okay for you to like skinny girls with big boobs and a butt
  • it’s okay for you to like curvy girls
  • it’s okay for you to like heavier girls
  • it’s totally okay to like thighs or thigh gaps and big boobs or small boobs and big butts or little butts
  • what’s not okay is telling a woman that she isn’t beautiful or sexy because she doesn’t meet your personal body type preferences

This bathroom in the Jacksonville airport had a bunch of signs of all different shapes of women and I think that’s pretty neat

So called ‘late-bloomers’ get a bad rap. Sometimes the people with the greatest potential often take the longest to find their path because their sensitivity is a double edged sword - it lives at the heart of their brilliance, but it also makes them more susceptible to life’s pains. Good thing we aren’t being penalized for handing in our purpose late. The soul doesn’t know a thing about deadlines.

The fear, too, is a fear of yourself: a completely dualistic and contradictory fear. On one hand it is a fear that you do not have what it takes to make it, and on the other hand, a possibly greater fear that you do have what it takes, and that by definition you therefore also have a responsibility to do something really big.

Forgive the past. It is over. Learn from it and let go. People are constantly changing and growing. Do not cling to a limited, disconnected, negative image of a person in the past. See that person now. Your relationship is always alive and changing.

And one of the things that often gets lost in discussions of depression is that you know it’s ridiculous. You know it’s ridiculous while you’re experiencing it. You know that most people manage to listen to their messages and eat lunch and organize themselves to take a shower and go out the front door and that it’s not a big deal, and yet you are nonetheless in its grip and you are unable to figure out any way around it.

I am sorry for filling you with beer and bad thoughts and then asking you why you shook. I am sorry for pinching you, for hitting you, for bruising the thin-skinned parts of you. I am sorry for the names I called you when we were fighting. You are not ugly. You are not useless. You would not be better off gone. I’m sorry for almost throwing you out into the street because my sadness was too much for me. I’m sorry for carving my fingernails into your thigh and then resenting the way people asked, “How’d that happen?” I’m sorry for plucking you and nicking your calves with drugstore razors. I’m sorry I let some people see you in the moonlight. They didn’t deserve to know the color of your hips like I do. I’m sorry for leaving you convulsing over a toilet bowl over some boy. I’m sorry I did not thank you for simply trying to take me where I wanted to go. I’m sorry I screamed at you to shrink, shrink, shrink when all you could do was grow. I’m sorry that this apology is ten years too late. I’m sorry that it will probably come again. I’m sorry that I do not treat anybody else as poorly as I have treated you. I’m sorry that I am constantly learning how to love you, when you have never once doubted how you feel about me. I’m sorry in ways I have not yet learned to communicate.
