This is a blog that has been created in the hopes that it can be a safe haven and a source of inspiration and education for those who are in recovery, particularly from an eating disorder. As far as I am concerned, the family and friends of those afflicted are also in recovery. Submissions of stories and photos are welcome; have a read and a smile!
"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."
Morning guys. I hope you remember today that if you slip up you can restart your day at any time. You don’t have to wait til the next day to start over. Just sit down, breathe for a few minutes, and start again.
