Maggie, nineteen, currently recovering from a relapse in my eating disorder. A lover of peanut butter, sunflowers, and baseball. Follow me on my road to recovery as I discover life beyond my ED.

Anonymous said: i feel so pathetic. right now i am in a relapse but i want to start to recover but i have zero motivation. i keep pushing off when i'll start and right now i want to just stay like this until thursday when i will see a friend so that i can stay thin enough for it and not gain anything. if i increase my intake then i will gain lots of water weight fast and look horrible

DON’T keep pushing it off. Start today (if it’s 11 PM where you are too then start tomorrow morning). You cannot keep saying you’ll do it later, because you’ll inevitably think of some excuse then too. You will not gain noticeable amount of weight within a few days, I promise. You may think you are, but I guarantee no one else will notice. And if this individual really is your friend, they shouldn’t care about whether you gain a couple pounds anyway. (which is definitely the MAX. you could ever gain in that short of time, and most of it would be water weight)

Ate 3 regular meals for the first time in awhile so *snaps* to me!

"be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your methods." the best advice I’ve ever received.

That eating disorders do not ONLY occur around mealtimes. It’s all day, every day, even in your dreams.

That eating disorders are NOT only about food. With anorexia nervosa you are starved of happiness, love, opportunity, and LIFE.

That anxiety is not JUST about feeling nervous, for me it’s the…

I know the first picture is not pleasing to look at but that is the body of someone who started off just wanting to ‘get healthy’ after joining tumblr and seeing ‘fitblrs’ intill it spiralled out of control….

The second picture is me right now. It’s not a before and after because I still have a long journey ahead of me! My thighs are bigger, my tummy is soft but you know what? I’m happy! Everyday is still a struggle but I enjoy life now! My life doesn’t revolve around my next meal or the amount of time I workout.

Tumblr can be a great place but it can also be very dangerous. I was young, easily influenced and it resulted in an almost deadly obsession that involved eating very little, eating healthy and exercising a lot…

THERE IS MORE TO LIFE THAN FITNESS!!! Yes it’s great to be healthy but being afraid of chips, feeling guilty for missing a workout, hating yourself is NOT!

Love yourself, you don’t need to change yourself because you are unique and you are beautiful how you are 💕

Choose recovery, it’s hard but it’s so worth it!
