This is everything.
From not being able to control my weight loss to gaining it all back in recovery mode, this is everything you didn’t know about eating disorders. Guess what? They’re not a one size fits all. Not every person with an ED looks the same, acts the same, struggles the same. You can’t put people into boxes like that. Just because the pants I wore when I wasn’t eating don’t fit now, that doesn’t define your worth. That doesn’t mean you’re not worthy of all good things. That doesn’t mean you’re “fat”.
Do I believe everything I just told you? Nope. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t severely struggling with making myself eat as of lately due to being insecure about the weight I’ve gained since depriving myself of, well, mostly all nutrition besides lettuce and coffee (yes I’m serious). But I’m trying to come to terms with things. I’m trying to eat foods that nourish me instead of going back into deprivation mode. I’m trying, everyday, and that’s all anyone can do.
Anyway, I hope you find something of worth in this post and the linked one above. Happy Thursday!

If you’ve been to any restaurant, especially in the South, you’ve probably seen ‘fried green tomatoes’ on the menu. Being one who’s never had the stuff, I set out to find out where they came from, and what they’re all about.

Just because we’re in the dead of summer doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a twist on typically baked or toasted foods. Try avocado toast, for instance. You probably didn’t knw there were so many ways to spin this stuff, yet, here we are, reinventing the wheel again.
