You a badass😎 Inner demons are the worst demons to fight because they know your biggest fears
Breakout sessions have started!!! A lot of information packed in to 3 different rooms!!
Ich hoffe ihr hattet alle einen schönen tag☺
Leider fängt bei uns jetzt hier der Herbst an. Jedenfalls Wetter mäßig😓 ich höre von total vielen das sie sich darauf freuen aber ich persönlich hasse lange dicke Klamotten und regen😂
Nun gut kann man nichts machen immerhin hatten wir einen schönen sommer🤷♀️😂
Ich werde jetzt noch 1ne Stunde Mathe lernen und mich dann aufs Sofa hauen😄
Genießt den Abend 😌
Dinner was spaghetti and meatballs 🍝 along with a side salad 🥗 Hope everyone is having a relaxing evening 😊💕
This was quite difficult and I’m disappointed in myself. I didn’t eat the salad, I ate some of the pasta but avoided the meatballs then broke down and threw away 2 of the meatballs. I then stormed off because I just couldn’t handle the rest. The 3rd picture is what I left. I will try to have a bigger night snack 😔 Not in the best mood though.
was Cod🐟, Pasta and Salad🥗 with Sriracha, Mayonnaise and Sweet Chilli sauce🌶. Dessert was a Vanilla chocolate ball yogurt😍
Hope you’ve all had a lovely day today🖤
Recently I’ve been thinking back on where I was 4 years ago, 6 years ago, how many times I’ve felt lost and how many more times I’ve picked myself up again.
Becoming a #NEDAambassador
reminds me of those things.
I think about the girl I was before my eating disorder took root. How I never felt at home in my body, how out of place, unworthy and unwanted I felt, and how I never realized there was another way to feel. I think about how I could have been if I’d had influences in my life like ones I have now.
I think about who I became when I was buried deep in my anorexia - trying to ignore it, push it down, how what I thought was the light was only the glint of my disorder’s teeth. I think about the damage done to my body and my mind, and I remember to forgive myself. I remember that I am worthy of forgiveness. •
I think about the night I chose recovery. I think about the brightness of my computer screen in the dark, taking NEDA’s online quiz about my risk, knowing full well the answer. I think about the email I wrote to the therapist I found on that website, and how my hands were shaking after I hit ‘send.’ I think about how I wished I’d known someone who’d been through it, who could tell me things were about to get better. That I didn’t have to live like this.
Being named a NEDA Ambassador is more than just a title to me. It’s more than having my photo on a website. Being a NEDA Ambassador is the hug I needed as that little girl. It’s the lantern and the shovel and the ladder. It’s the voice telling me that everything is going to be okay. It’s throwing out the rulers and the scales and the expectations and the judgements and comparisons.
That’s what matters to me. Recovery isn’t about perfection. It’s not linear. It’s not a race. It’s not about the shape size color of your body. And you should never, ever be alone.
If you’re struggling right now, reach out. Even if you feel like no one else knows, or no one else cares, I promise you that I do. I care. And I want you to get help because you deserve it.
If this hits you, please know: you are worthy of help. Txt NEDA to 741741 for anonymous crisis support & start talking with someone who gets it. 💚💙
I need your help!💞
At the moment I think about delating a few posts of my account which I don’t like anymore and which don’t still match my feed! I also think about posting as of now only two (maybe sometimes three) times a day but therefore more different and hopefully inspiring!🌸 I want to be more active in my story, too! Please write me your thoughts and opinion cause it would help me a lot!💞
A yummy porridge bowl is definitely always a perfect idea and it gets prepared so fast! I had this galaxy one a few days ago with spelled porridge topped with blueberry soy yoghurt, pear, cinnamon, crunches and quinoa pops for my #afternoonsnack
If you have questions, you would like to talk or something else please write me on Tellonym or a DM, I like helping you or give inspiration!💗
Our Break Out sessions have started and they are some awesome presenters!!
The out of office is on! Ready to train with my besties, get our Greek food gains on and catching a jet plane outta here tomorrow! ✈️ 🇵🇹 #holidaymode
“You were born to be a rainstorm,
To send your voice throughout the night,
To sing your song with falling raindrops,
To break the darkness with your light,
You were born to show raw beauty,
To wash the dirt out from their eyes,
But the whole world ran for cover,
When you opened up your skies,
So you made your thunder silent,
And learnt to bite your rainy tongue,
You gave them what they thought they wanted,
You gave them life with endless sun,
But as they watched their lives grow weaker,
Watched as their leaves turned brown and dry,
They wished they didn’t take for granted,
Your booming presence in the sky,
You were born to be a rainstorm,
To be chaotic and be bold,
To show there’s beauty in the knowledge,
That you cannot be controlled,
Because you might think you’re not needed,
Life without you is the same,
But nothing beautiful would ever grow,
If it wasn’t washed with rain.” - Erin Hanson 🌿⛈ -

Hoje quase desisti de ir no treino no parque, estava sem animo/força para levantar. Só que se eu não fosse ia me sentir pior ainda, então fui.
Essa foto parece almoço mas na verdade foi meu lanche da manhã. Comi dois ovos, avocado e pão integral com homus.
Meu intestino travou de novo e a única coisa que consigo perceber que mudou foi ter parado de tomar o suplemento porque acabou.
Isso mostra que meu corpo ainda não se recuperou totalmente. Tenho muita dificuldade de consumir proteína o suficiente 😥
Agora pouco almocei e vou na terapia, meu ânimo é zero.
If I took anything away from reading all of your stories on my last post it’s this:
A huge part of our body image is shaped by other people’s comments and opinions.
And for the record, they commented without our consent. 🤚🏼
They made OUR body THEIR business without knowing how much their words will impact us years, even decades later. 🙉
I am here to tell you that YOU have the power to change your inner monologue and let go of those people’s beliefs forever 🤗
You don’t owe them anything! ❤️
Remember my words:
Your body is nobody’s business. 🚫
Nobody has the right to comment on your body and make you feel ashamed or guilty.
It’s YOUR body, you have the right to look, feel and do whatever you want and whatever makes YOU happy. 😘
Lastly, a friendly reminder to all of us that even comments like “have you lost weight? You look amazing!” can be extremely damaging.
In my case, I got hooked on these comments and was shattered when my weight gain caused people to either say nothing or to ask me if I was okay 🤦🏻♀️😂
I personally stay away from commenting on other people’s bodies all together.
Because it’s none of my business 😏
Your body is nobody’s business. Deal?! 🙌🏻
Let me know how you are feeling in your body today, I would love to hear 👇🏼
I'm sorry I've been gone so long. My phone ran out of data and I had to connect to the school Wi-Fi to post this. I'VE MISSED YOU ALL!! How is everyone doing?? I just finished reading Ready Player One and I started reading Little women, which is my aunt's favorite book and play. I'm sitting in art class right now. I made a yarn bowl with the instructions to form it out of a word that best describes me. I used "perseverance" of my fight with Ana. If you would like to see it comment and I'll post it on this page!
Hi im Lucy and I’m fighting mental health problems. I'm learning that I'm NOT mad ! ( No matter how much the ex boyfriend says I am) . I have a big heart and I love with all of it . I have been though mental, physical, emotional and sexual abuse but I'm just trying to get my head around the news that it wasn't my fault and I didn't deserve it , because no body deserves anything else but the best life. I have been dealing with some big triggers over the last month after being dumped by someone i thought loved me and then i lost my job and then my home . My anxiety is surely challenging me and when people ask are you ok ? I'm able now to say no I'm not today , recognise when your body is telling you it needs love and attention whether that's that you need to eat better , sleep more or get out and exercise then do it, do it for you , don't hide it if your not ok because I know there will be days when you can say ... yes thank you I'm great . I can do this YOU can do this . .

This is my “binge watched a whole season of AHS last night and need to drink a gallon of coffee” face. 🤦🏻♀️ Time to work til 11pm. Honestly, long days like these can bring some of the greatest feelings of accomplishment and service. This job allows me to give back to the community, and if there’s one thing my recovery needs, it’s to learn how to not be a self centered biotch. Cheers to paying it forward!
This weekend. For however long you can manage, an hour or several, all day and all night, or just for a few moments, do what you want to do. Not because you "must" or because of what others will think of you. Just take the time to listen to what you actually want or like and do that instead.
You deserve that respect from yourself.
Putting summer berries on everything is my way of holding on to these last days of summer (which are sadly already feeling like winter days ☔️). Despite the rain I am grateful to have most of the weekend off to rest & prepare for these next few months, as classes start soon and life is guaranteed to get a lot more interesting (aka: busy & challenging.) I’m happy to say i’m up for the challenge - I am definitely the type of person that thrives when I have something to do/a goal to work towards, and I think part of why i’ve been struggling so much lately is because my entire life has just been working to pay the bills, day by day that’s all i’ve been doing..I really haven’t done anything for myself lately and (shockingly enough) that kind of “life” is not very fulfilling for my mind, body, or soul, so it’s no wonder i’ve been feeling so low. It’s no secret that i’ve been unhappy and i’ve felt “stuck” for a while now, but I think (hope) i’m beginning to get un-stuck. Am I nervous? You bet. This next chapter will be challenging for me in a million different ways, and yep, it’ll be challenging for my eating disorder too. So much will be out of my control and that’s been a huge ED behaviour trigger in the past - the only thing I can do is take care of myself as best as I possibly can, mentally & physically, and do my best to adapt to all the changes and challenges in a way that’s healthy for me. Things will be out of my control, but i’m beginning to find a sense of freedom in that. I won’t be able to control everything in life, but I will always have the ability to control how I react to what life throws at me. One of the lovely perks that comes with recovery is that i’m gaining a better understanding of myself and that understanding gets deeper every day - I have no doubt that i’ll be able to take better care of myself moving forward simply because I have a better understanding of the kind of care I need & when I need it. This morning, the kind of care I need comes in the form of @cheerios
and strawberries🍓 No matter what happens from here on out i’ll be striving to make nourishing myself my # 1 priority - and that includes nourishing my spirit as well as my body✌🏻
If I asked a child to draw a picture of a carrot, they would most likely draw something that resembles the carrot on the left: orange and cone shaped. That’s the kind of carrot we are constantly exposed to! That’s the type of carrot you see Bugs Bunny gnawing on. That’s the type of carrot that most supermarkets sell. Many people don’t know that there is an entire species of carrot that make up a palette of beautiful colors and shapes. How is anyone supposed to be aware of this when 99% of the time, we are exposed to perfectly saturated, orange, triangular carrots?
This relates well to the idea of an ideal body and how it has become so prominent in society. —————————————————————————
What exactly is the ideal body, right now? 🗣
I used to believe that the ideal body was a thin one. That is was what I was surrounded by. Thin TV characters, thin store mannequins, thin pop stars. The majority of adults around me were dieting in an attempt to achieve a more youthful and healthful self.
I later believed that the ideal should be healthy. That made the most sense to me. Healthy is in everyone’s best interest, right?
Well, I’ve learned that the whole idea of an “ideal body” is bullshit. 🙅🏽♀️You are trying to visualize a singular body to glorify when the reality is all humans (and carrots!) are not meant to fit inside one identical mold. 🤔
How do YOU define health and how does your definition compare to hundreds of other people’s interpretations of the word? I’ve learned that making health the priority for everyone to strive for is actually excluding many — it’s being ableist. Striving toward health is implying that anyone who falls outside of the ‘healthy’ parameters are not worthy of love and respect.
For instance, you wouldn’t deem your child unworthy of love and respect because s/he was diagnosed with cancer, or diabetes, or ANY condition, for that matter. The child has been diagnosed with something that may be considered not in ones best state of health, but they are still worthy of love and respect. 💞
I now believe that there should be no ideal body.
Wie kann man besser ins Wochenende starten, als mit einem köstlichen Apfelflammkuchen. 😍🍏😋
Und noch besser: ich starte hiermit in eine Woche Urlaub.😀
Morgen gehts zwar nochmal auf die Arbeit weil wir Firmenfeier/ Familientag haben und danach gehts gleich auf die Geburtstagsfeier von Daniels Papa.
Heißt Mittag und Abend viel Essen und Kuchen all day long - und ich freu mich richtig drauf! 👍😉 Sonntag fahren wir dann für 4 Tage nach Holland zum Wellnessurlaub. Da geht das Schlemmen und verwöhnen lassen dann weiter. Das brauch ich jetzt echt mal und denke, das wird mir auf alle Fälle gut tun.
Zeit für mich und meinen Freund und nix unnötiges um das ich mich kümmern muss.
Ich hoffe nur das Wetter wird ein bisschen besser als heute, denn sonst fallen alle outdoor Unternehmungen ziemlich ina Wasser.🌧🌧🌧
Was sind eure Pläne fürs Wochenende?
Ich mach mich jetzt gleich noch ans Koffer packen, weil ich da morgen ohnehin keine Zeit haben werde 😜
Hallo ihr lieben,
erst einmal: Mir geht es gesundheitlich Gott sei dank wieder besser. Zwar noch nicht perfekt gut, aber das Fieber ist weg, was ich so schnell gar nicht erwartet hätte 🙆♀️. Ansonsten verrast die Zeit hier. Morgen haben wir schon Halbzeit des Urlaubs 😱. Aber ich muss sagen, dass ich mich auch auf daheim und alles, was kommt, freue. Auch wenn ich gar nicht so genau weiß, was mich dort erwartet 😅.
Das Studium, klar, aber wie genau wird es in der Eichstätter Uni sein? Welche Leute werde ich kennen lernen? Werden wir uns verstehen? I don‘t know. Meine neue Wohnung, auch klar. Aber wie wird es sein, alleine zu wohnen? Werde ich mich schnell einleben? Wie werde ich damit klar kommen, einen eigenen „Haushalt“ zu führen? Keine Ahnung!
Obwohl ein riesengroßes Fragezeichen in der nahen Zukunft steht, bin ich doch positiv gespannt auf alles, was jetzt kommt. Und ich glaube, wenn die Uni die ersten 2-3 Wochen läuft und sich eine gewisse Routine entwickelt, wird sich alles auch nochmal anders, besser, „sicherer“ anfühlen 😊.
Und jetzt tanke hier nochmal ganz kräftig viel Sonne ☀️, bevor es ins herbstliche Deutschland zurück geht 🍂 und mein neues Leben beginnt (in dem aber natürlich auch einige Bestandteile meines „alten“ Lebens weiter bestehen dürfen 😁❤️).
You can be in recovery for a variety of struggles. Post the date below that you began to face these struggles and things started to change. For some people things may get “worse” before they get better. That is okay and sometimes part of the process. Stick with it. Continue to grow into the person you where meant to be and let nothing stand in your way. Love you guys.
📝Part 1, writing a “how I did it” blog post: Stretching to seek inspiration & energy from the Universe 🙌🏼
This is a positive picture taken just one week week ago. From just 7 days many incidents have occurred from trying to take my own life several times , to running away from home by jumping out a window and being chased by police cars as they put emergency blue lights on as I try to harm myself, to becoming unable to deal with overwhelming emotions that I resort to drugs & get searched by student support at my school, to receiving loads of abuse and having an outbreak & becoming violent, to having panic attacks as I can hear delusional voices and paranoia people are following me,to running out of pe lessons because I can’t deal with the physical sensational urges I have to commit suicide etc. This is how much my mood can fluctuate from being manic which can last seconds, minutes,hours,days to very depressed. Spread awareness, mental illnesses aren’t always obvious. Yes,these incidents were but I try so hard to conceal my problems but outbreaks often unleash when our mental health becomes to challenging to cope with 💛 #suicide #suicideawareness

I’m reading a book at the moment - it’s called Solve for Happy by Mo Gawdat. I saw him speak at a conference and he’s talk was the most inspiring thing I have ever experienced in my life. He went through some horrible stuff, he lost his adult son by a medical professional’s mistake during a surgery. Now, that’s a pretty huge trauma. I sort of feel I’m not sure I could live after a trauma like that. I am not sure if I could live if my partner died. But he lived and he says it was a conscious choice. His book about happiness, which he believes is our default setting. Happiness = the absence of unhappiness. We learn to be unhappy and our brain is flawed in a way that enables us to prolong our pain and turn it into suffering. We don’t suffer because of the things that happened to us, we suffer because of the way we THINK of the things that happened to us. But he thinks we’re in charge and we can, by hacking our own mind, can achieve the state of joy that withstands all the hurdles and pain in life. Whatever happens in our life, we can handle it and see exist in the state of joy. We will still experience pain and discomfort but by accepting things how they are, we don’t feel the need to extend it into suffering. It’s the ultimate acceptance of life as it is, our place in it and to live it to the full with whatever we are given. Now, that’s a positive outlook on life. It’s inspiring me and making me so happy as I’m reading it. So, I thought I’d share. ☺️ #quotes #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #solveforhappy #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpd #bpdlife #bpdrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #recoveryquotes #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #dailyquotes #dailyquotesforinspiration

HELLO BEAUTIFUL😍😍😍 -
Been buzzing for this all day and omg it did not disappoint🙊 a FULL WAFFLE💪🏻 topped with nutella, Ferrero Rocher, nuts and strawberries🍫🥜🍓 with the side of Ferrero Rocher ice cream🍨 and cream🤭 I genuinely feel like I could eat this all again! Feel like a greedy pig saying that but it’s true😂🤣 -
So, preparations begin! A night to remember and I’m going to make sure it is!!! I refuse to let the fact I’ve eaten this with my friends have a toll on how I feel in a dress! Who cares if I look/feel bloated?! Who cares how much weight I’ve regained lately?! I’m regaining life and freedom and that is all that matters!!! I have more of a genuine smile on my face now than I have done over the past few years and that’s good enough for me! Fuck the weight, fuck the feelings...I want life! I’m going to enjoy tonight and have a dance with the bestest of friends I’ve gained over the past few years! They have never once left my side despite all the shit I’ve gone through, despite making others feel like they couldn’t help me, they never turned their backs! Yes, one or two people did, but to me that just shows that if they can’t handle me at my worst, they sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best!! ONWARDS AND UPWARDS💪🏻💕 -
Here’s to an amazing night, week, month...LIFE❤️ -
