✨THANK YOU FOR TEACHING ME✨is a beautiful response to someone’s ask of you. Defenses keep you safe and others out. There’s a time and a place for defenses. But, there’s also an opportunity for connection. #defensive #love #gratitude #openheart #bossbabe #relationshipgoals #motivationalquotes #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery

It’s been almost a month now since I made the decision to go for proper recovery. Time goes so fast! Checking back in to let you know how it’s going! So this week in particular I’ve noticed my eating becoming a lot more normal - almost like it was pre-ED. I eat what I want and when I want but naturally my body is preferring set mealtimes instead of eating all over the place. I no longer experience extreme hunger and haven’t eaten an excessive amount for about 2 weeks. My tummy started off bloated and painful in the first couple of weeks but now has gone back down to a normal size and I don’t need to hold a hot water bottle on it every night. I’ve seen great improvements and am also concentrating on my mental health too, giving myself free time to do things I enjoy throughout the day and picking up old hobbies I gave up, which has been very good for my mood. I still get disordered thoughts but am learning to ignore them or belittle them. So I hope hearing about these changes will help you in your journey of recovery, whatever stage you’re at ☺️ ~ ~ #foodporn #yummy #healthy #healthyeating #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexiarecovery #anarecovery #anorexia #bulimiarecovery #edfamily #edrecovery #recovery #foodisfuel #strongnotskinny

On this Friday afternoon as we move out of the week and into the weekend, let’s focus on moving out of the old (cycles, patterns, things that no longer serve us) and move into the new. Make space for yourself and take what you need. I’m grabbing big doses of love, joy, calm, and magic!! Sending all of you good energy as we move into the goodness of the new! You can do it! I believe in you 💛 (and remember to take some magic with you if you need it to move into your new next steps) photo credit: @positivelypresent

Old Wallpaper I am. Feeling a bit sullen today. Things seem very strange since my diagnosis. I wonder if I will change once I start mood stabilizers, if so...I hope in a good way. #poetry #poems #bipolardisorder #bulimia #bulimiarecovery #anxiety #death #depression #moody #aesthetic #vaporwave #lofi #writingcommunity

Along the journey to a healthy relationship with food you'll find that balance is key. Balance means having breakfast, lunch and dinner with snacks in between. It means having veggies & fruit, proteins and also carbohydrates and fats. It means giving yourself permission to have the foods you really love and to enjoy them mindfully. Making foods "off limits" is just going to make you want them more. Look at that balance ↑ haha.. get it? :P #deardietitian #guelph #downtownguelph #registereddietitian #dietitian #womeninbusiness #entrepreneur #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorder #mechanicaleating #intuitiveeating #balancedeating #normaleating #balancednotclean #nodieting #antidietdietitian #healthateverysize #haes #whatdietitianseat #rdtalk #dietitiansofinstagram #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #osfedrecovery #bingeeatingrecovery

At the end of #antibullyingweek I think it’s important to be aware of how we talk to ourselves, as the meanest bully can be within. • • When a kid loses a game we encourage them, tell them it’s not a big deal & that they should keep enjoying the playing of the game. But do we tell ourselves these same things? Do we lead by example and have fun, rather than scold ourselves when we make mistakes? • • Next time you notice your inner bully, do what you’d teach a kid to do, tell it it’s wrong, ignore it & keep living life and having fun (but don’t try to punch it in the face 😆🤔) • • #selfcare #selflove #antibullying #antibully #conflict #eatingdisorderrecovery #selflove #loveyourself #compassion #bekindtoyourself #kindness #mentalhealth #depression #bully #bulimiarecovery #bingeeatingrecovery

I've been struggling with writing lately, which I am not sure how to remedy, but @_____halle__ inspired me to share my story again for the first time in years. So here it goes 💕 My eating disorder (ED) began in preschool. It all started with occasionally refusing snack despite being hungry. Due to trauma and unmet needs, I was desperate for control, love and stability. I found a false sense of those things in my ED. My ED behaviors changed throughout the years but consisted of significant restricting, purging, obsessive calorie counting, extreme anxiety around food, etc. Along with my ED, I struggled with drugs and drinking daily. It all became worse in college. I discovered the gym and spent hours a day there, frequently passing out and destroying my body which led to two surgeries and a battle with Orthorexia. On my birthday in August 2014, I was diagnosed with Colitis and felt like I'd reached rock bottom. Eventually and reluctantly, I started seeing a therapist and doing EMDR therapy. It changed my life and I would not be here today without that therapist. In 2016 I gave birth to my daughter. It was an incredible experience, but my ED and postpartum anxiety / depression took a turn for the worse and led me to intensive outpatient treatment. I've relapsed, moved states and a lot has changed since, but I continue therapy and treatment to this day. I'm no longer ashamed or afraid to tell my story. It has made me the warrior I am today. 💕 PS: Thank you for reading this far.

Left over pizza for dinner😍 the only change I would make last night would be more sauce, so I slapped more on for tonight’s din. Tastes like real pizza, looks like real pizza, without a million carbs to make me feel like poop☺️ • • • • • • #ketoweightlosstransformation #ketogenicfood #keto #ketogenic #ketoaf #ketodiet #ketogenicweightloss #ketogenicdiet #ketoliving #ketolifestyle #weightlossstory #weightloss #weightlossjourney #bulimiarecovery #intermittentfastingresults #intermittentfasting #if #intermittentfast #intermittentfastingdiet #pcosweightloss #pcos #pcossurvivor #pcosdiet #polycysticovaries #hypothyroidweightloss #hypothyroidism #hypothyroid #insulinresistance #insulinresistanceweightloss

About addiction(ED) and cognitive function. I’m feeling a bit blue. In day to day life, I often notice my decline in cognitive function because of so many years of being sick and stunted. It gets me so down..I can remember when things were not bad for so long. I can remember how my brain used to work. With education and creativity. It feels like my part of my brain is locked away. And the rest filled by calorie calculations, food and ed thoughts. My mind lights up with anything related to my illness. I can read and calculate and focus like a dream when it’s about food, but can’t function if asked to read a novel. I used to read, a lot. And I used to be a student with top grades. And not just love all forms of art but also create and write. I read an article from national geographic a year ago about how addiction does this to your brain. And what research has shown is after a decent period in recovery, cognitive function began to return. I’m holding onto that hope. I hope the more I fight, the more life i’ll recover.

It is okay to fear recovery. The unknown is scary. After being sick for so long, I lost my identity. I used to constantly think ‘if I’m not Ashleigh the anorexic, who am I?!’ Whilst this is daunting and petrifying, it is also very exciting! You can choose to be anything and anyone you want! During and after recovery as your ED dissipates, you will have so much space in that beautiful brain to fill with things you enjoy and things you’re interested in, rather than just food and exercise. It is okay to be scared of making a change, but it is not okay to stay sick for that reason. I was never “ready” to recover, I was petrified. However I was also petrified of staying sick and living a quarter of a life and the notion of that prison was worse than the concept of the unknown. Outside of your comfort zone is where the magic of life lies. And I promise that being recovered is infinitely better than anything your eating disorder can offer you (which is just a false sense of control, false companionship, misery and death). You may feel that your ED is keeping you safe, but remember it is trying to kill you. Remember, you have a life to live! 🌈✨💖🌻💃🏽🦋

I don’t give a shit anymore. That’s it. That’s my big recovery secret. I don’t give a shit how many calories are in my dessert, or what size jeans I’m wearing. I don’t give a shit what the person next to me is eating. I don’t give a shit what anyone thinks of my body or my food. Wanna know what I do give a shit about? How ABSOLUTELY DIVINE that cinnamon roll was, how I enjoyed & savored every delicious bit of it, and the beautiful people I shared that day with. More shits to give for connection, less for perfection. Because none of it matters, anyway. Life doesn’t give one SINGLE shit about choosing the low-calorie version of your favorite dessert when you, and your friends, have limited time to share on this planet. Eat the cinnamon roll. Call your friend. Go out for dinner. Share a pizza. Have a conversation. Love people. Love food. Love yourself. ❤️🍕

Off to bed after what has felt like a really long day. I hate that I don’t really do anything ... unfortunately I am the type of person who NEEDS to feel productive. I’ve tried applying for jobs but there isn’t much online at this time of year. Started selling my old clothes for money and literally just trying to get rid of anything worth anything because financially I am a fucking wreck. Photo is in black and white because my skin looks disgusting once again and I’m fed up of looking like I’m halfway through puberty ... going to try to sleep now because I actually have a nice day planned for tomorrow and I’m looking forward to it! #anorexiarecovery #anorexia #bulimiarecovery #bulimia #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorder #like4like #l4l #edwarrior #edsoldier #edcommunity #edfam #edfamily #selfie #selfiewanker #moodygrams #prorecovery #recoveryishard #tiredasfuck

TW:ED • It’s hard to love yourself when you’ve hated yourself for so long. I helped destroy my body by over exercising, doing too much, not eating enough, eating too much. • I haven’t worked out in weeks and, haven’t properly work out and had a schedule in months. I don’t know how I am, I don’t know how I’ve gone this long. I identified as someone who went to the gym, like it was apart of me. • I surrounded my whole day around when I was going to the gym. That’s not healthy. There’s a lot I had to stop doing and still am in the process of trying to stop doing. • There has been a lot of change going on in my life and it has been really affecting me. • I’m ready to be active, if anything just for general health. I still don’t like myself. I still want to change. Still criticize everything i eat or don’t. • It’s gonna take awhile before I get a hang of it, but I’m trying.🌸

16.11.18💘 I ate normally today: had #breakfast + #lunch and even went out with a friend on a #sushidate 💪🤗 Now I am enjoying my #nightsnack ~ But tbh I am soooo bloated rn and hope that my #metabolism / #body will know how to work as soon as possible and is going to be able to handle all the #processes that it needs... but for that I have to recover and never ever see purging or starving as a solution again!💪💫💕 ~ @claudi.luise if you see this, thanks for your inspiration (alpro + rewe knusper müsli 😂😘) • • • • #ed #edrecovery #edrecoveryquotes #edrecoveryarmy #bulimiarecovery #ednosrecovery #anorexiarecovery #strong #happy #transformation #bodypositivity #bodypositive #bulimiafighter #intueat #bulimianervosarecovery #bulimiawarrior #food #foodlover #health #healthy #intuitiveeating

High strung as fuq today - dad on his way to CO - and naturally as I frantically prepare for his arrival, I run into last year’s ex at the coffee shop. My hair greasy, overalls givin’ me camel toe. • Oh Jesus, I think we’d say to each other, if we were talking. Get another fuckin’ coffee shop. • Isn’t it funny how the situation doesn’t change but yet compassion and empathy do given the day? • He notices me & scowls. • Blow me, I think, as my phone lights up with my addict ex’s mother. • Heart skips, every time I see that call. • Can’t find him, she says - familiar wary & worry in her voice. • Stare at recent ex, talking to high school ex mom. “I’ll call his gf.” • There are days I get up & realize how unconventional my life may seem. • I sleep on top of a 1970s hot tub, with a piece of wood & a mattress laid on top of it. I dream of #vanlife and I keep ppl sometimes too close. I also have a “normal” 9-5 job. • I’m an unconventional life mixed with pieces of conventionality. In other words, I’m like human whiplash, which is why I relate to some & less to others. • I navigate comfort & discomfort - both of which I seem to want equal equilibrium, which is difficult to balance. • And more difficult for my parents to accept. • This weekend, my dad’s coming to spend time with my partner & me - in our home, that we live in together, with our hot tub bedroom & rock walls. • Laugh as I clean bc what difference does a sparkling mirror matter when it’s the least of my parents concerns over the years. • I suppose - at nearly 30 - I am still slowly coming to an acceptance that we won’t see eye-to-eye, and no amount of looking fit, sparkling mirrors, or “inspirational” speeches about recovery can change that. • They have their values. I have mine. We are trying. We try. • As I sit here this afternoon - my addict ex’s gf texts me “I know you think I exacerbate his problem.” • “It doesn’t matter what we think,” I remind her. “We just want him to live.” • Watch my recent ex walk out of the room. How I do miss you in my life. • Get a GIF from my dad about travel delays. • Take a moment to breathe: life is unfolding, as it will. I am OK 💛 • #recovery #sober #edfam #boulder

At work my colleagues talked about travelling and all the countries they have visited. Logically they asked me where I have been to but in the last 7 years I wasn't able to fly to a foreign country thanks to my eating disorders. I have been to Lisbon once but it honestly was pure horror because all I cares for was avoiding food, walking through the city the whole day to do enough exercise (oh my poor friend...she probably hated me for this). Travelling just means to much unknown, spontaneity and enjoyment. So I told that I just haven't had the time and money to travel. Since this talk I want to go somewhere so bad. Just anywhere. I want to see the world, explore new cities and experience different cultures. But with an eating disorder this isn't going to happen. So a really big reason to recover is: to travel! #edfighter #edsoldier #edwarrior #edrecovery #ed #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisorder #anawarrior #bulimiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #recovering #recoverywarrior #recovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalillness #mentalhealthrecovery #awareness #vacation #travelling #fernweh #garden #somewhere #explore #nature #beautifulnature #flowers #purple #pink

For most of us, when we are in the grips of an eating disorder, our values get distorted because eating disorders thrive in isolation and secrecy. * When we are not in recovery, we could value things like perfectionism, control, appearance, health, etc. There's nothing inherently "wrong" with these values, they just have the capability of derailing recovery. 🙅🏼‍♀️ * When we start the journey towards recovery, we are forced to address these values and shift them to be more sustainable and recovery-focused. 👍🏼 * For instance, maybe you value honesty and authenticity. Something else your "true self" may value is connection and empathy, or flexibility and rest. There are much more; this is by no means a comprehensive list. * In the comments, let us know what choice you are going to make this weekend that will align with your true self values? ⤵️💫 * I'll start: I value connection, so I am going to make sure I check in with some friends over the weekend. 👯‍♀️

It’s been a big year, here’s what I’ve learned (1/10) ☀️ #tinylessons #recovery #mentalhealth

Today has been a really tough day mentally. I’ve been at war with myself all day but instead of facing those thoughts I’ve just buried myself in my book for most of the day and gone through the motions. I’ve also been suffering a lot of dizzy spells throughout the week so I’ve forced myself just to rest today which has also had me feeling guilty for being even more of a waste of space than I usually feel. What’s made my eating disorder louder is the fact that I’ve not run into it’s arms for comfort despite gaining weight this week. And yes I keep getting waves of anxiety sweep through me, yes my mood is all over the place, and yes it’s made those thoughts even louder, but that’s the only way I’m going to beat them eventually. It might be easier if I were to give in to what my eating disorder wants, but I refuse to be its prisoner any more. We are all more than what we look like. We are all more than that number on the scale or the size of clothing we wear. We are all so much more.🌈✨💖 #anorexiarecovery#recoverywarrior#prorecovery#realrecovery#beatinganorexia#bulimiarecovery#bodydysmorphia#depression#eatingdisorderrecovery#edwarrior#believeinyourself#eatingdisorderawareness#edrecovery#recoveryisworthit#nevergiveup#mentalhealth#selfacceptance#recoveryispossible#mentallillness#edfamily#gainingweightiscool#edcommunity#recovery#edfighter#anxiety#socialanxiety#bodydysmorphicdisorder#anarecovery#bddrecovery

MOST EXCITING SALAD EVER! for lunch today! Gem lettuce, sweetcorn, cucumber, red onion, sundries tomatoes, hummus, croutons, chilli and fetta! 😍 I hate to be so optimistic but I think I've finally conquered eating in public 👊 I'm thinking this because I was sitting down, eating my pumped put sale and I was just there involved in conversation. Laughing enjoying it wasn't till I left the cafe with my bestie that I realised what had just happened...or rather nothing had happened, nothing had been thought , nothing had been feared nothing had been hated. I had just enjoyed a meal with a friend, like any other person, I don't like to be to proud about things it always makes me feel like I'm being vain or arrogant but I can help feeling a little bit happh that after all this time it's finally happened ❤ Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx #foodisnottheenemy #recovery #realrecovery #anorexia #bulimia #ed #eatingdisorder #recovery #realrecovery #prorecovery  #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #edfighter #edsoldier #edfamily #edcommunity #anawho #eatittobeatit #healthybody #healthymind #healthyishappy #nourishtoflourish #recoveryisworthit #nourishnotpunish #imnotmyanorexia #iamnotmyed #nomoreanorexia #foodismyfreedom

Friday reflections: I come back again and again to the compelling truth that internalizing our culture’s narrative about good and bad bodies, and good and bad foods too by the way, is many times at the root of our disordered eating struggle. Ask yourself-if you can imagine that you are walking around in a life where your body, as you are in this moment, is affirmed, allowed, and approved of, how would you nourish yourself, how would you move and play? Yep, it is essential, it just is! We must drop out of diet culture for recovery and freedom. AND THEN please join me in speaking up against the diet culture bullshit! Believe me, this effort will embolden and strengthen your recovery and your lasting freedom! #thanksgivingiscoming #speakup #edrecoverywarrior #chronicdietingrecovery #bedrecovery #osfedrecovery #bulimiarecovery #anarecovery #dietculturedropout #dietcultureistoxic #bodyliberation #freedomfighter #edrd #nondietdietitian #healthateverysize #haes
