| chia, nana, blueberry + agave overnight oats🤩 - I’m not usually one for adding fruit to my oats but been loving (spotty ) nanas with this for a bit more sweetness.🍌I’ve also found that adding chia seeds to my oats has made them even thickeeerrr so would 100% recommend (tho it can get a bit like frogspawn if you add too much so be careful )😅
#nedaawarnessweek “All bodies are good bodies; including mine”. I realized I was overweight when I was 11 and started weight watchers. My weight loss journey started off healthy, but along the way some traumatic things happened and food is what I grabbed onto to gain some control again in my life. I restricted what I ate along with obsessively working out. I received so many (completely well meaning ) compliments for losing so much weight and becoming “healthy”. I loved the attention and affirmation that i was doing the “right” thing.And then it felt like almost overnight I was being told I was too skinny. The compliments and then critique felt like whiplash. It began to feel like no matter what I did- my body would never be good enough for anyone, and especially not myself. I got so fixated on “losing 10-15 more lbs” that I lost sight of my original goal- health. Eventually the secrets I had been keeping came out and I received help. It’s been a long time coming, and is still a DAILY work in progress, but I’m beginning to have care for my body. I’m learning to accept her rolls, cellulite, and stretch marks. Attempting to name all that she is as “good”. She’s been through a lot- hauling around too much weight, then not receiving nutrients. She’s had to start medicine that made her hunger feel unquenchable, and medicines that made her too nauseous to think of food. She’s traveled mile after mile running. She’s learned to lift weights. Shes gone through 3 (almost 4 ) surgeries to repair her messed up legs.She’s held the heartbreak of losing best friends, a marriage, shattered dreams, and loved ones. She’s been mistreated- by myself as well as others. Yet each day, she wakes up and keeps going. My body is not perfect, but she is a good body. #EatingDisorderAwarenessWeek #EDrecovery #AllBodiesAreGoodBodies

As #nedaweek comes to a close, I just wanted to say a few words about what it’s like to live with an eating disorder. Having an ED is exhausting. You don’t own it- it owns you. You think about it 24/7. Everything you eat gives you guilt, and you feel tired and cranky most of the time. The worst part about having an eating disorder is the lack of understanding from those around you. When someone tells you “just eat something!” They don’t understand how badly you wish you could but your mind won’t let you. It’s a hidden illness that isn’t talked about enough in a society full of fatfobia, detox teas, and endless access to perfectly sculpted bodies. I just want to remind you all that if you know someone struggling, remember that it’s not just an on/off switch. Remember that they cannot just change their outlook or start eating more. Help them by offering kind words, asking how they are feeling. Start understanding what triggers them. Give them a hug and tell them how valuable they are as a human. We could all use a little more kindness. It’s free so spread it around with abundance. *if you are struggling with an eating disorder and you need someone to talk to- my inbox is always open. I love each and every one of you. And YOU HAVE VALUE . . . . #neda #nedawareness #edrecovery #edrecoverywarrior #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #hiddenillness #bodypositivity #bodytransformation #bodydysmorphia #bodydysmorphicdisorder

Are you trying to recover your period and finding yourself stressed and confused about what to eat or not eat ? 😨 Your not alone ! In today’s weight and “health” obsessed environment, it’s all too easy to open your phone or turn on the TV only to find yourself overwhelmed by nutrition “hacks” . .

#NEDAWeek continues... Are you a savory or sweet breakfast person? Im DEFINITELY a savory breakfast person, and love some runny eggs in the morning. I’m excited to share this *easy* baked eggs in avocado 🥑 recipe. • All you need to complete this is: avocados, eggs and whatever seasonings/toppings you enjoy! • How it’s made: - cut avocado in half and remove the pit - scoop out some of the avocado from center to make room for egg - break egg into center of the avocado. don’t worry if some of egg spills out, at long as the yolk is intact! - sprinkle egg with seasonings of your preference. I just used salt, cracked pepper, and parmesan cheese. - bake in oven at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes until whites are set and yolk is runny. - top with hot sauce (if you like! ) and enjoy 🤗 • Let me know if you try this recipe and what you topped yours with! I think some seasoned hash browns or fresh fruit would pair perfectly with this simple avo & egg combo. • There was a time when the thought of eating a whole avocado in one sitting would have sent me into a spiral of negative, distorted thoughts; I settled for half, because less fat and fewer calories = losing weight. I obsessed over every little thing I allowed myself to eat. It’s important to challenge these unhealthy and distorted thoughts that come with an eating disorder. You have control over how you respond to these negative thoughts. Here are some strategies to recognize and challenge your ED thoughts: 1. Limit and eventually replace unhealthy behaviors. - Healthy behaviors may look like: giving yourself permission to eat all foods (without guilt ), coping with anxiety in a productive way, moving your body in a way that feels good, etc. 2. Recognize and then challenge distorted thoughts. - Become aware of your own ED distortions and then reframe each thought into a healthy alternative thought. 3. Find positive ways to cope with your feelings. - A lot of times individuals use their ED to handle difficult emotions and situations. Positive coping skills can help with working through these stressful situations. Healthy coping skills may include: deep breathing, meditation, drawing, reading a book, goal setting, etc. •
The numbers that describe the size you wear...2, 8, 12, 16, 24—whatever that number may be is neither GOOD nor BAD. These numbers are DISTINCTLY a numerical value that allows us to wear clothes that fit our bodies. The end. These numbers do NOT determine: 👉🏻your worth. 👉🏻if you’ve done a “good” or “bad” job. 👉🏻who you are as a person. 👉🏻if you can or cannot eat. 👉🏻if you need to do excessive amounts of cardio. The ONLY way we can have this mentality is if we become “neutral” to the numbers of our clothes. If something doesn’t fit—that’s okay, try something else! Bigger sizes 🚫 BAD. ^SAY IT AGAIN BIGGER SIZES🚫BAD! Smaller sizes 🚫 GOOD. Somewhere down the like we’ve correlated “good” to a certain number and “bad” to a certain number. Friend, this is a belief we’ve believed for years that has been passed down from your grandma, grandpa, mom, dad and now to you——this belief DOES👏🏻NOT👏🏻SERVE👏🏻YOU👏🏻! - Realize this belief is a LIE and move away from that mentality and form new beliefs, like: 👉🏻Sizes are not good nor bad. 👉🏻The size of my clothes does not define me as a person! 👉🏻I am beautifully created. I am a masterpiece. 👉🏻I won’t let a number on my clothes define my worth. You’re amazing🖤 - - Watch out for the @wakeupcallpodcast episode tomorrow that will have Step 2 of the “Guidance Through Exercise Addixtion” Course! You won’t want to miss this!
According to @NEDA at least 30 million people suffer from an eating disorder (ED ) in the US at some point in their life, and 20 million of these people are women. There is not one cause of ED: Biological, psychological and sociocultural issues all contribute. Today, we join @NEDA in promoting increased public understanding of eating disorders, prioritizing a more inclusive world, and reflecting on our own self-acceptance journeys. Be sure to join the conversation across social platforms with the hashtags #NEDAwareness and #ComeAsYouAre . Together, we can create a safer, more loving world. ♥️ Are you or a loved one suffering from ED?

Messy and sweaty but strong and badass 💪🏻💪🏻 Happy to be back to training now and feeling stronger than ever! Establishing my new gym routine is tiring me out but I am utterly loving it. 💚💚🌱 Seeing progress from a year ago has helped motivate me because I've been down this week. What is also great is that since my training has been consistent, I'm not loosing strength when I have to take a break 😁 I'm very proud of how strong I've gotten, moreso after what I've put my body though eating disorder wise. Here's to some arm GAINS this year so I have guns in my wedding dress 😜 Happy weekend babes 😘😘😘😘
Here's this week's final tip for living beyond the mirror! ⠀ Keep yourself surrounded by people who love you because of who you are and appreciate all the things that make you unique! Remember there is nothing wrong with setting boundaries in order to surround yourself with a supportive community. ⠀ ⠀ #RenfrewCenter #RenfrewAlumni #EDRecovery #EatingDisordersAwareness #BeyondTheMirrorWithRenfrew #NEDAwareness #NEDAweek #NEDAweek2020 #BoundarySetting #Boundaries

NEW: WHY WE OVEREAT & BINGE EAT – AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT I woke up to a thread of texts from one of my ACTIVATE coaching clients. She was sharing a couple big wins – feeling grounded and peaceful in her body – and a tricky situation that came up with her husband. After feeling alive and present all day, she shared some of her food and body struggles with him, and he got triggered (he has his own food stuff ) and started debating the validity of her experience. It was 11:30pm, and all of a sudden she felt super hungry. She ate cookies and pizza in a frenzy, when in retrospect, she had nourished herself all day and wasn’t hungry at all. It felt impulsive, she said, and like she was trying to cure something. This scenario got me thinking about the primary reasons we overeat and binge eat, and how we can return to aligned nourishment and joy with food. Let’s dive into 5 of the main causes of overeating and binge eating, and then I’ll share how I responded to her. Link in bio. Do you overeat or binge eat? Why? Share with me over on the blog. With so much love, Lula

28.02.2020 at Home I wasn’t feeling my best today but I think I got everything done! After breakfast I had a job interview at a McCafé, which went well but they were looking for someone who could start immediately and I could start in April, when I’m out of the LG. Then my dad and I picked up our car from the mechanic and had lunch together. Before my mum and I went to the kindergarten school, I had some time to organise my calendar and do some yoga. The kindergarten school was very interesting and I registered for it. I have an admission test for it on the 31th of March. Back at home I had a spa evening, took a bath, washed my hair, did a face mask, shaved etc and watched a bit of TV while hula hooping. Now I think I‘ll start packing my suitcase because tomorrow I have to return to the LG... 😭 #recoveryquotes #quotesoftheday #recovery #recoveryjourney #anorexiafight #anorexiarecover #anorexianervosarecovery #recoveryanorexia #edrecoveryarmy #edrecoveryjourney #edrecovery #edwarrior #anorexiafighter
This morning it was so exciting to launch the next phase of my #DumpTheScales Campaign which will help more people get the support they need! Eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes yet we still live in a society where people believe them to only effect those who are underweight. It is a complete injustice that people are still being turned away on the basis of their appearance or weight. As a result of this I am absolutely delighted to have been working closely with SWLSTG over the last few months to co-produce a resource which will directly tackle the issues that have been raised by thousands of people all over the country effected by eating disorders, barriers that currently stop them from getting the support they need. The resource will mean fewer will be turned away from getting the support they need because of their weight, a vehicle step in ensuring guidelines are properly implemented for all who seek support. This is also a guide designed to support GPs to better understand Eds, meaning the quality of care you receive doesn't depend on the numbers on a scale or letters on a postcode. Next week I am presenting the resource in Parliament and it is vital we get Government Support so that we can roll this our further There is still more work to be done but I feel so happy and quite emotional in getting this far! 🙌🙌🙌🙌 What can you do now? 👉 Sign and share the petition (link in my bio ) 👋 Share the resource across your networks #mentalhealth #dumpthescales #edfam #nhs #recovery #Number10 #EDrecovery #timetotalk #campaigner #mhawareness #eatingdisorders #BMI #estingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawarenessweek #EDAW #HubOfHope
So here’s the thing It starts out small, almost insignificant, almost unnoticeable A step on the scale Thinking, I’d like that number to be a little lower Solution: no more dessert on weekdays Then weekends Then no more snacks Then only eat 1/2 your meal Then nothing but a granola bar, peach, or yogurt for lunch Then only x amount of calories & it goes on & on & on What may seem like an innocent idea, just an idea to lose a couple pounds. Can do easily become this obsession. Can control your life. That’s the thing. Take a step back, you are more than that number, weight, calories, whatever. You are more than what you eat and what you look like. & its seems hard It seems impossible Buyer you can get better You can move on
Eating disorders are mental disorders. They are fatal. They are scary. They are all consuming . . Remember this if someone shares this part of their life with you. They didn’t choose to have one . . Leave an emoji below if you can see this!

And here’s part 2... . . . Even before I officially started my channel, I knew that I wanted to share my story in a very honest, very detailed eating disorder story time video, though I didn’t know how detailed and how honest I would get... If you’ve ever wondered why you’ve been “graced” with annoying YouTube thumbnails and/or other “inspirational” shit on your feed from me, this video might explain a few things. This was either a really brave thing to do or a really stupid thing...I’ll guess I’ll let you decide! So if you’d like, come along with me as I talk through the toughest moments of my life in an epic story time video about how I survived a long fight against multiple eating disorders, forever striving to be happy and healthy in my own skin! ➡️link in bio! . . . #foodblogger #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #strongnotskinny #sarahsday #sezzysquad #nourishnotpunish #allfoodsfit #makesmewhole #newvideo #youtuber #youtubechannel #fitfam #newvlog #youtubevideo #newyoutubevideo #tropeaka #transformation #fitnessjourney
Remember that even if it seems impossible to get through the pain, the anxiety, and the horrible things people might be telling about us you are going to do it. Your recovery comes first, your health comes first, YOU COME FIRST.
Hi #instaworld 👋👋👋 My name is Tori and although it doesn’t define me, I am just over 7 years “sober” of #Bulimia and damn proud of it! 👏✨ I wanted a place where I can speak openly about my experiences in a positive light to bring #awareness to a subject that is surrounded by so much shame. After all, our bodies are the only witness to all of our life experiences so let’s hold it in a warm hug and thank it for keeping us together. 😊😊😊Lets talk #bodypositive and keep it real on here! I’m also an avid fan of #crystalhealing and anything in the #spiritualrealm so get ready to #lifttheveil and keep moving in that #UpwardSpiral 💫💫💫💫
Hi everyone! How is your recovery going? This has been my afternoon snack: Donut with sugar and a fruit juice. weeks before eating that donut would have been a suffering and I would not have eaten it out of fear, but recently I decided to eat one and from that moment they stopped being a challenge for me, that's why I like to challenge myself, because little by little food will disappear that my ed says they are bad and I am able to eat them normally. #anorexia #anorexiarecover #anorexiafighter #anorexiafight #anorexiarecovery #anorexiaproblems #bulimia #ed #edrecovery #edrecovering #edproblems #tca #eatingdesorders #trastornoalimenticio #anarecovery #food #icecream #recovery #recoverywin #beatinganorexia
I can't believe it, I haven't eaten popcorn in the movies for a long time, it's something I never imagined I was going to get, so this is a great achievement for me. I enjoyed them a lot and they didn't bother me the movie. I'm so happy Sorry for not being active but these days I could not use the phone, I hope you can understand me. I remind you that my DM is always open to all of you and I also love meeting new people and helping each other. #anorexia #anorexiarecover #anorexiafighter #anorexiafight #anorexiarecovery #anorexiaproblems #bulimia #ed #edrecovery #edrecovering #edproblems #tca #eatingdesorders #trastornoalimenticio #anarecovery #food #icecream #recovery #recoverywin #beatinganorexia
Hi! During these days I have been struggling a lot because as I told you in my stories these days I am eating more than usual because I am hungry mentally and I am not well but I always try to get a smile and move on. I'm not proud of me because sometimes I try to compense all the food that I ate but little by little I won't feel guilty anymore.

Today I have been at my friend's house all day and it was a super challenge for me because I ate without the help of my parents. And guess what happened? Everything was great!! I had no problem with the meals and I had a good day, sincerely I thought it was going to be worse but I'm glad that everything went well. In the afternoon we went to a cafeteria and shared this delicious waffle. I hope you have a good day!!!

Et soudain tout change... Tout change, s'échange, se bouscule et nous rend minuscule. Tout se mêle, s'entremêle, tout pèle mêle, viens on vit, on oublie, relâche l'esprit, aller, souris! Les peurs s'effacent pour céder la place à l'espace, espace de vie et d'envies, de pouvoir et d'espoir. Figés dans nos appréhensions, terrifiés à l'idée de nous accorder notre pardon, pardon petit corps, pardon petit coeur, pardon encore et encore, pardon pour cette douleur. Souviens toi de avant. Avant ces larmes, avant ces colères, souviens toi de ce charme, de tout ce que tu pouvais faire. Tu sais avant, quand manger n'était pas danger, quand marcher n'était pas obligé, quand compter n'était pas imposé. Souviens toi quand le poids tu t'en foutais, quand pour toi tu ne voulais que suivre ta voie, et avancer. Souviens toi, ce moment - là, quand tu doutais parfois, mais que jamais tu ne laissais à cette voix le pouvoir d'un roi. Souviens toi de ce sourire sur ton visage, souviens toi de toutes ces images, eh, il est peut être temps de tourner la page? De quoi as-tu si peur? De vivre? Mais ce n'est pas mieux que survivre ? De te nourrir? Mais ce n'est pas mieux que mourir? De la chaleur? Mais ce n'est pas mieux que cette frayeur? D'aimer? Mais ce n'est pas mieux que de détester? De T'aimer? Mais tu le mérites tellement! Tu mérites la joie de l'enfant, l'amour d'un parent, les bras d'une maman. Tu mérites la douceur et le bonheur, oublies la rancoeur, abolis ces peurs, deviens l'empereur de ton coeur. Alors tu viens, ensemble, on peut faire mieux que survivre, on peut VIVRE, et soudain tout change. #edfighter #edrecovery #edfam #anafighter #anawarrior #recoverywin #fearfood #chocolate #icecream #dessert

we love a healthy bmi and a fat fucking donut. I did that. #edrecovery
Hey, the idea that women need to be the smaller one in a heterosexual relationship is total and utter turd. Screw your patriarchy and beauty standards. I always wanted to be smaller than my partner. Smaller... weaker. Smaller... more fragile. Smaller... more emotional. Smaller... less noticeable. Smaller... the damsel in distress. Smaller... achieving less. Smaller... being less. I never felt worth enough, loved enough or self assured enough to be bigger... in any way wether that be emotional or physical. Doesn’t that just suck. The connotations I attached to ‘smaller’ are not only not true but also incredibly damaging for myself and others. It’s taken me until recently to realise I’m safe and total worth being what I need to be at any point and you should feel that too! I’m lucky that I’m in a relationship with a human that loves me for ME whatever that may be. . . . Image description: milly and @positivitypoppa are stood side by side and are seen from the waist down. They just have underwear and socks on.
left: only interested in making myself smaller. freezing cold. no strength or interest to do the things i loved. hair falling out in chunks. right: strong. frequently cherishes moments with good friends surrounding good food. straight A student because she fuels her brain correctly. living in food freedom. happy. this #nEDaweek , remember to treat your body as you would treat a small child- feed it enough and nourishing food, take it for a walk, be gentle and supportive, and tell it you love it. 💕
Yes...orthorexia looks a lot like a normalized “healthy lifestyle” . It started off innocently enough: “I just want to be the healthiest version of myself!” . Which quickly developed into obsessing about food, carrying pouches of protein in my purse just in case I couldn’t eat any food where I was going, smoothies/shakes for breakfast and dinner (solid food for lunch was ok-but only vegan ), talking about food 24/7, judging others for their food choices, juice cleanses, anxiety when I ate “processed” foods, getting upset and crying when my family didn’t understand my dietary restrictions...I could go on forever. . It’s national eating disorder awareness week @neda and while anorexia, bulimia, binge eating etc. are formally recognized and diagnosed, orthorexia isn’t. Without formal criteria, it’s hard to know how many people suffer with this type of disordered eating. . Speaking from experience, there’s so many of us...and most of us have no idea, we are living in a cultural bubble that tells us that what we are doing is “health.” We see it on social media, on blogs, media publications: restrictions, fasting, denying your cravings...so “healthy”-look at their body! . What no one talks about are these psychological aspects mentioned above. So, if this is resonating or if this is where you started and things have spiraled out of control, you deserve help, you deserve healing even when the whole world is praising you for weight loss and being the epitome of “health.” . I share what I share and I do what I do because of my experience. My life changed the moment I stepped out of the bubble and started connecting and seeking knowledge on so-called “health.” Intuitive eating and all the things that came along with it flipped my life upside down. It’s been the most rewarding journey and now career path. . P.s. These warning signs are not for those who have medical conditions that prevent them from eating certain foods.
Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do. Not a punishment for what you ate.💭I mean, does this look like punishment?!🧡🙅🏽♀️ ,Ich erlaube mir nicht ‚normal‘ zu essen, wenn ich nicht beim Sport war oder X Schritte am Tag gemacht habe. Hast du Tipps für mich?‘ Genau diese Frage bekomme ich von euch wirklich oft gestellt. Viele von euch klingen dabei regelrecht verzweifelt und ich kann es zu 100% nachvollziehen, denn genau das war auch lange Zeit mein größtes Problem! Wenn ich nicht beim Sport war bzw. mein Sportpensum und noch dazu eine gewisse Anzahl an Schritten erreicht hatte, war mein schlechtes Gewissen da. Das schlechte Gewissen, ‚faul‘ zu sein und sich das Essen verdienen zu müssen. Jeden Tag auf‘s Neue. Wisst ihr wie anstrengend das war? Und vor allem war es alles andere als nachhaltig und gesund. Ich bin die Letzte, die etwas gegen einen aktiven Lebensstil sagt, aber Pausen gehören genau so dazu und sind enorm wichtig. Für mich war das bis vor kurzem noch richtig unangenehm, wenn ich einmal nicht zum Sport gegangen bin. Am Anfang habe ich mich regelrecht dazu zwingen müssen und hatte auch ein schlechtes Gewissen dabei. ABER genau das ist der Punkt: viele sehen Sport als Mittel zum Zweck. Als einzige Möglichkeit, sich Essen ohne dieses schlechte Gewissen ,zu erlauben‘ und das geht dann oft so weit, dass es anfängt, deinen Alltag zu bestimmen. Aber wozu? Glaubt ihr, dadurch so einen enormen Vorteil im Leben zu erlangen? Macht euch das langfristig glücklich? Und macht ihr es in dem Ausmaß wirklich gerne? An dieser Stelle muss man wirklich anfangen abzuwiegen und zu verstehen, dass wir keine Maschinen sind. Anstatt uns zu bestrafen sollten wir versuchen, so gut es geht, mit unserem Körper zu arbeiten und ihn zu versorgen DAMIT wir Leistung erbringen können und uns dabei gut fühlen.🙏❤️ #breakfast #smoothiebowl #healthylifestyle #foodisfuel #breakfastbowl #nourishnotpunish
