Eating disorders.

4 Sep

Being on a diet means that we’re following a selection of food choices.
But more often than not, when we say we’re on a diet, its more like we’re starving, rather than eating anything at all.
If I could turn back the clock and be a little nicer to myself, i would have valued myself more no matter what my body is.
Of course truth’s the truth’s, we all love being thin.
But who we are doesn’t change when we get fitter or just a little chubbier.

We think that we’ll be happy and satisfied when we reach our ‘goal weight’.
That happiness never comes.
Obviously just like everyone else, I dismissed that thought when someone brings it up.

Then i realized, you can’t have someone tell you that, you gotta have to go through it before you fully comprehend what we mean when we say,

Enough is never Enough.

Where’s the ecstatic jumping for joy reaction that i long anticipated i would have?
You’ll continue to find more faults with yourself, until and only until we find peace with our body.

Get Over Yourself. (Get the two meanings?)

Its okay, i love you even when you don’t look perfect. We will work on it and get better. For myself, and because i want to be healthy, and not for the peer pressure that is telling me i’m not good enough.

If you’re:

Skipping meals, only drinking water, drooling at your friends’ food and convincing yourself that it will all pay off once the spare tyre around your tummy and love handles shed off.
You’re having a eating disorder and you need to stop.
Is it really the logical thing to do? Would you tell someone else who wants to lose weight, to do that?

Instead,
Make baby steps to changing your lifestyle.
Eat an apple after breakfast, Add an extra serving of veggie during lunch, remove fried food from dinner.
Removing a huge chunk of food off your diet is not sustainable.
Be selective of what you eat and eat more of it rather than skipping meals and deprive your body from the good stuff. Trust me, it will backfire.

Don’t make drastic changes that your body can’t adapt to when you start a diet.
E.g. If you’ve been waking up at 12nn since thelastyoucanremember,
and you force yourself to get up at 6am for the next 7 days,
you’re gonna be the one hell of a pms-ing bitch.
Unless, you make little adjustments slowly, like waking up at 11, then 10 then 9.
You’ll still reach there, right?

Embrace the change your body is put through.
Over the years, our body will change because of age, metabolism, stress, pregnancy and many other things and thus,
we will never always be a certain size.

Value yourself and not just your body.
Be what you are, and not let what you are, be you.

    Wow. You pretty much summed up the behaviours, emotions and thoughts for the last two years of my life in one post. Am now in recovery, but this post struck really struck a chord.

      Hi Leesah! That is so sweet of you to say.
      I’m glad I did and you totally made my day.
      Hope you’re feeling way better than before. 🙂 xo
