Favorite Thoughts

I really want to thank everyone for their love and support it means so much to me

I also want to clarify the purpose behind my blog.  It is my outlet. It is where  is where I get out my frustrations out.  It is where I feel better, it is where I grow

I love that everyone is trying to help me and understand what I’m going through. It means the world to me! It is my way of spreading the word of eating disorders.

However I know you have your own issues that you are going through which I may or may not understand.  Just like you want to understand I do too. Just as you want to shake me and say “Just eat when you are hungry, its THAT simple”.  Trust me. I know. I think back to all the women at RENFREW (eating disorder rehab) they were so patient, loving, supportive and caring with all of us…….I do NOT know how they did it/do it, because I have a hard time NOT shaking others with ED’s 🙂
So I get it, you WANT to shake me, you want to help me, you want to make me see.

However you can not.  Just as I can not MAKE someone stop drinking, or using drugs, over eating, under eating, over/under exercise……..and so on and so on.

My writing is not a cry for help.  My writing is my outlet and my release. I appreciate and love all the feedback and suggestions but ultimately the only way I will get through this is my figuring it out on my own, which I am slowly doing ❤

My eating issues are a very difficult concept to grasp and understand

It is not about food (yet it is ALL about food!?!?)

it is not about eating. It is about control

Eating a doughnut once a week is not going to solve my problem

Making myself eat what you are eating just so that I fit in is not going to solve my problem

My biggest struggle is dealing with my own eating issues.  On a world where many people do not eat healthy.  A lot of people are on the opposite spectrum of me.  My sole purpose is to eat healthy food for me and my body

I can honestly say I don’t look at calories or fat in products anymore.  They mean nothing to me.  What I worry about is if the food is good for me

I only want to put the things in my body yes if at times I want something that is not so great it’s okay.  If I want it.  However I am one of the lucky ones that truly does not crave certain things because I have not had them for so long, and that is not so bad.  I keep fighting myself and my thoughts that I SHOULD want and crave kit kat bars or potato chips, but I currently do not.

In a way I am very lucky because I do love and enjoy high-fat high calorie, but good natural food

I am already on the right step toward recovery.  I still have a long way to go but most of it is mental

I spent my entire life trying to save others. I was not successful.  I believe that is where a lot of my problems began.

Only now do I realize I am not able to solve any problems, fix anyone or make anyone do anything they do not want. I can not make anyone face something they are not ready to face
