I'm struggling to find normalcy with food.- - -my eating has been literally all over the place. I have tried so many different things. Eating a lot of small meals throughout the day, eating larger meals with smaller snacks in between, eating a big breakfast and smaller dinner and vice versa. Basically any type of meal or timing variation I've tried it.- - -some days are realtively normal and I feel satisfied, but other days the extreme hunger kicks in. And when I say extreme, I mean EXTREME.- - -on those days I am so out of control. I eat so much that I feel physically sick and then sometimes go back for more after that feeling settles down. The next day I try to compensate..but that only leads to a bigger future binge. I've been in this cycle for months.- - -so yes..I am definitely struggling. I can't trust my hunger cues because I either don't have any or I have unrelenting, almost painful hunger. I have a hard time trusting my cravings too because I seem to only want the same 10 things all the time with very little variation.- - -I am trying to find balance. I really don't have the answers, but I think it starts with me having to address my extensive list of fear foods. From there I have to stop being so rigid with counting calories/macros. The sense of "control" I get from that is nothing but a wolf in sheep's clothing.- - -a few accounts that have helped me navigate these feelings of extreme hunger/binges are @ka_fit_happy (she has an awesome YouTube video about this) and @tabs_edrecoverycoach who has an awesome blog/YouTube channel/podcast that is so eye opening and really makes sense out of all these ED behaviors (so many of my "AHA" moments in recovery have come from her!)- - -if you are going through something similar I feel you and empathize with you. But know you are not alone and be kind, forgiving, and loving with yourself ✨

What Causes Addiction? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here at The Lighthouse Bali, we are firm believers that alcoholism and drug addiction fall under the category of “disease” rather than disability; it is not a failure of will-power or strength of character. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth is that drug and alcohol addiction is the result of many complex factors interacting in a unique way for each of us. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are a few aspects we recognize are common throughout most substance addiction. The first, is that we are often addicted to a substance that affects the bio-chemistry of our brain. We begin to form a physical and mental addiction to the substance. This explains why over time the disease progresses and the addiction strengthens. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Other factors enhance and form addictions such as: environment, especially as a child. Life experiences that have drastic emotional effects can also influence our addictions. It is well established that the disease of alcoholism and addiction is hereditary and can be passed down through genetics. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It is the combination between the psychological and physical addiction that makes substance abuse so dangerous. This is also why these addictions are very tough to recover from without outside assistance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ So how do I know what causes my specific addiction? The answer is that you will never truly understand all of the causes and that's ok. Accepting this fact will help make recovery easier. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you are questioning whether or not you have a substance abuse problem then please contact us for more info. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ 🏡 Inpatient / Outpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab 🌿 14-90 Day Addiction Treatment 👩🏼‍⚕ 1 on 1 Care 24/7 | Tailor Made Rehab 💻 www.TheLighthouseBali.org 📬 info@TheLightHouseBali.org
Post work, post run, pre @soulcycle drink ☕️ I went for a run yesterday trying to make it 6.5 miles. Let me just dispel any premature praise and say that it didn’t happen!!! I wasn’t feeling it and my hips were tight and hurting. 3.5 miles in, I was back at my house, worrying that I wouldn’t ever be able to run the half marathon I have in March. But umm, brain ... how about no🤦🏻‍♀️ As my dear @kimibucha reminded me, I stopped because I wanted running to be fun and pushing my body that way wasn’t a good (or healthy) idea. Today, I went out for a run, got barely 2 miles and knew today also wasn’t the day to hit 6.5. However, I was outside a super cute cafe so instead of beating myself up, I stopped for a latte. It’s days like these that remind me how lucky I am to be on this earth, healthy enough to move by body in ways that feel good💙

💖 🌸 dinner yesterday was 4 pieces of these pizza flavor stuffed pastries (which was a challenge for me as it was filled with cheese and cheese is a major fear food) and a bowl of mango. {TW} I didn’t eat breakfast, and only had a coke light all morning😞 for lunch i had a ham toastie and some grapes. Recovery is so hard.. some days i’m super motivated to recover but other days, especially when my parents are not watching i feel like giving up ☹️ But i will try to stay strong and not let ANA win..

At my job, there are mirrors everywhere. Every studio has them and sometimes in the dance world, it can be hard to escape them. I know I can’t be the only one out there who has struggled with their self image, body acceptance, and mirror work. These are broad, complex concepts that are often explained by an oversimplified phrase: “accept/love your body”. Easier said than done, in my opinion. As someone who’s in recovery for an eating disorder, this has been one of my most difficult struggles for me. There are still days where I find myself avoiding mirrors or I find myself hating my reflection. A big part of this comes from the misconception that is fed to us by diet culture that my worth is somehow tied into my appearance, my weight, and my shape. This is a lesson I’ve been working on un-learning as I work through my recovery process. And the more I say it out loud, the sillier it seems that my worth is determined by anything other than my character, how I treat others, and the kind of human being that I am. We are not put on this earth to make ourselves smaller. Our purpose in life is not to be a certain weight or work towards being a certain number on the scale. We have greater and more impactful things to work towards in this short life we’re given. I have spent too much of my life trying to reach a weight I thought would bring me happiness and peace of mind. That journey to that weight and that look brought me nothing but depression, self hatred, isolation, and disastrous relationships with myself and others. It was never the food I consumed, or the way my body looked that was the enemy. It was my eating disorder. I definitely don’t have all the answers or some magic fix to make you love and adore your body as it is; no one does. And it’s okay if your way towards body acceptance looks different than someone else’s. The important thing is to realize it’s a process, that it doesn’t happen all at once.
Sometimes I wonder how I've gotten as far in life as I have. I think it's my stubbornness. . . BUT, I think I've learned to use it to my advantage. Stubbornness towards a goal is called determination. I have a lot of that. Sometimes things seem so dismal and I really don't know how things will turn out but I choose hope instead of worry. Stubbornly hopeful. I could just as easily worry but worry is a bad use of my energy and imagination. I choose hope. It agrees with my body better. I feel all my feelings in my body and it isn't always pleasant. I feel more at peace and I picture a day that come after hope. I hear so much about positive thinking and positive affirmations and I have to say the FOR ME, they were a life changer. I used to call myself the most horrible names and believe it. This fueled my ED and depression. I've learned about affirmations over the years (it didn't click the first time I heard it nor the second but eventually I got the hang of it) and it certainly gives my brain some positive energy to direct my focus towards. With hope and strength. Hope and strength have gotten me far. It has been the wind beneath my wings when I thought I couldn't fly anymore, couldn't continue the same life anymore, couldn't deal with certain people or situations anymore. Hope got me through. Hope and strength. Two powerful tools to help get from one day to the next. May we all be hopeful and strong for the things that really matter in life that stir our hearts. ~Paisley Rose [photo: unknown] . . . . . . . . . . #hope #faith #determination #morefaiththanfear #strongerthanthestruggle #thinkpositive #positiveoutlook #believe #recovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #bulimiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #edfighter #edwarrior #mentalhealth #depression #anxiety #stressrelief #recoveryisworthit #beatbulimia #bulimia #2fab4ana #eatittobeatit
And it is all 👏🏼 okay 👏🏼
Hopefully this makes sense... but despite the fact that addiction is extremely selfish, recovery NEEDS you to be selfish too. Selfish in the way that you are focusing on yourself, doing things for you, setting boundaries, giving yourself time and patience to learn and grow, and putting yourself around healthy, positive people. Some selfishness is not a bad, toxic thing. Sometimes selfishness is necessary to move forward.
Nine 🖤 A special number for me this year and a marker of my healing journey thus far, which has me reflecting on all the gifts I have received and the struggles I have overcome. It has been an incredible nine years. What I can say for sure is that getting sober is the best thing that has ever happened to me. All of my pain has a purpose. I have been granted freedom from the bondage of self, have grown into my authenticity, have honoured my heart more deeply, have healed from the need to play out toxic relationship patterns and self-sabotage. I have softened. I have listened to my inner nudge. I hold space for others. I can be present. I can be alone. I can be connected. I love who I have become. . The #9ofCups in tarot is an indication of wishes granted, emotional fulfillment and the feeling of gratitude. Nothing could better demonstrate how I feel in my skin and how I feel about my life today. . Life continues to happen. The full story is still unknown, but I have found such joy in the life built around my choice to look myself in the eye and keep doing what is necessary until I can be the person who can hold the gaze. And now, that gaze is held with a smile. . Much love to everyone on this journey and for those who helped along the way. .

Every addict has a story. Often, addiction begins with a mental health issue. About half of all people with an addiction also have a mental health condition. This is called a dual diagnosis. For these people, addiction becomes a way to mask symptoms of mental illness, and to self-medicate when traditional mental health medications do not work. Even among people who do not have a mental health condition, mental health issues such as stress, low self-esteem, boredom, and loneliness can lead down the path of addiction. Mental health therapy—sometimes called psychotherapy—helps you begin putting the pieces back together.

Today I got asked if I lost weight.. she said "Carolyn, you look sick and that you lost a lot of weight, your in my prayers" why do people have to say stuff like that.. I know she meant well, but idk.

Slept in so brunch was avocado toast with @tofurkyuk ham, tomato, cucumber and coriander 😋
Here’s a pic of my protein fluff from last night 😌. This was yummy but I’m going to talk about something a little less happy 😒. So to be honest with you guys I’ve been on struggle bus lately. Struggling to eat enough, struggling to branch out, and struggling with anxiety and depression 😞. Things were growing great a few weeks ago! But now I’m just in a low spot. I talked with @balancingkatie and we decided no more gym until I get together. I’m not writing this post for you guys to feel bad for me because honestly that is the LAST thing you should be feeling!!! Katie and my Mom have both given me so many opportunities to turn this struggle around and they have been there by my side to help me through it. But in the end they cannot do it for me and I’ve been giving in to the anxiety and the restrictive behaviors. In the end i haven’t taken the opportunities and done anything to challenge myself 😔! Yes, I have made SO MUCH progress the past few months, but seeing as I’m struggling right now I know I still have a long way to go. I’m sorry to be negative and that really isn’t the point of this post! The point is that I am doing this to keep myself ACCOUNTABLE! I could stay silent and say that “everything is fine” when it really isn’t, but that’s just going to get me into a worse place. I’m going to fight for my life back and I am going to do that one step at a time! Step one is to start with EATING and then we will go from there. I am not going to give up and I NEVER will 👊. I’ve gotten this far, and I’m not going to let the ED start creeping back in now 😉. I’m not going to say “I promise to start now” because those are just words...instead I’m GOING to start doing better because actions speak so much louder than words. I can do this but there is only one way to get started and that’s by just freaking DOING THE HARD STUFF!!!
I’ve got some exciting news! In the new year I’ll be launching some new products that will include, die cut sticker packs of some pieces of my art, handmade clay pins, handmade trinket bowls and hopefully some other prints & lil positive gifts. And some other news I’ll be having a Boxing Day sale on the 26th December to celebrate the festive season. ____ ___ Tags: ____ #mendingthelost #etsyshop #etsyuk #etsy #etsyseller #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #recovery #edrecovery #recoverywarrior #recoveryisworthit #mentalillness #fangirl #bookworm #bookstagram #bookish #bookishmerch #booksofinstagram #blackfriday #etsyjewelry #etsyprint #etsypaper #blackfridaysale #shopsmall
I think a lot of the time we let the negative things get us down and our mind focuses on that, rather than the good. I’m reflecting on my day and I feel like I held onto some negative energy. Then I went to yoga and felt relief.. but going back to work brought the negative energy back. I’ve been talking a lot about this lately because it’s something that is affecting me deeply; the fact that I work inside all day and work in an office job. I have never felt so lonely & depressed as I have lately while at work. Anyways, I hope something good happens to you this week & when it does (because it will) I hope you hold onto it ⭐️
Today I had my appoint with my dietitian. And it's weigh day. I really don't like being weighed at all. All I can think of is how much weight I'm gaining. She convinced me to give her my scale from home about five months ago. It's been torture but I know in my heart it was the best thing for me mentally and physically for gaining back health. My scale did nothing but keep me trapped within my accepted numbers at all costs which meant I really couldn't trust the program since I was worried about numbers. BIG step for me. Now I'm dealing with accepting my body size. Thank you so much for all of the encouragement. I appreciate it so much. It does help keep me rational to hear others tell me such positive things and not slide back into behaviors. I really struggled with if I was going to share this part of my recovery online because I'm generally a happy, positive person but this recovery is HARD and everyday is not roses. Sometimes I obsess so much and I guess I thought that I would be looked down upon for my obsessions. But I've learned so much about myself from things shared by others that maybe someone can learn from my outlook, which is why I decided to share this troubling phase I'm having. I challenged by fears by getting a cinnamon roll to eat with my coffee. Sadly it was the first meal of the day and it's late afternoon but I can get back on track. I did awesome yesterday. I encourage everyone to keep pushing forward. Don't miss out on your life by being stuck in fear. Fear will steal your life and stunt your recovery work. Any effort is excellent effort. It's hard but we can do it! Let's keep trying. Our lives are waiting! ~Paisley Rose [photo: self, glazed roll] . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #faceyourfears #fearfood #mealchallenge #challengemeal #strongerthanED #recoverywin #nutritionist #dietitian #mealplan #challengeyourself #nourish #bodyimage #bodyacceptance #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #bulimia #bulimiarecovery #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #foodismedicine #eatforlife #recoverforlife #edwarrior #edfighter #recoveryisworthit #strongnotskinny #healthynothungry #mentalhealth #endthestigma

“Your weight loss should not be the most interesting thing about you.” Both these pictures show someone who is worthy of self love. I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder when it came to “getting my body back,” whatever that meant. (Spoiler: Your body always has worth.) Since the initial weight gain was an accumulation of the booze, binge eating and overall lethargy, I wore my weight loss as a badge of honor for a long time since graduating. 🏅 But I’ve learned that everything up to this point transcends that. It could be easy for me to champion weight loss and showcase it as a way of me becoming healthier, but the truth is this: Losing weight and/or getting “lean” shouldn’t be your gauge of if you’re getting healthier. Along with this physical transformation came a crap-ton of mental and emotional growth. Along with it came recovery, rebuilding how I love myself, and many other lifestyle changes. 🏋🏻‍♀️ People become healthier and empower themselves with different journeys; weight gain, loss, not even worrying about it, etc. We need to stop glorifying before and after pictures solely at face value and applaud the mindset/lifestyle gains as well. Whether you’re still learning how to love your body at all stages, whether you’re trying to sift through social media that tells you that you “must” lose weight to be proud *cough*BS*cough*, you’re a champ and I’m damn proud of you. ✨ #transformationtuesdays

People have been asking me my opinion on #kanye and his mania driven twitter posts. For me, it really comes down to this phrase I’ve heard @natttttnatttttt say countless times. The only way to ensure advocacy is helping more than it is hurting (both ourselves and others) is to share from a scar not a wound. If Kanye were to share in a few months time what this period of his life was like in a thoughtful and DELIBERATE way, that would be ace. But right now his sharing is not raising awareness about mental illness. It is actually increasing stigma and misunderstandings about Bipolar and doing his community and himself a disservice. 🤦‍♂️ . On the other hand, being so high profile and living with a complex mental illness brings with it unique challenges. And I do not envy Kanye. Every slip and fall is captured by the media and that is horrendous. Far be it from me to criticise how he walks his path with HIS bipolar diagnosis. 🤷‍♂️ . But I think there is a lot to learn from Kanye’s attempts to raise awareness. And that is to always ensure we are in the right place to share and that our own safety and well-being is the priority above and beyond spreading a message. 🙏 . [image description: a pale Rose pink background with white text that reads “ensure that you are sharing from a scar, not a wound.”]
ANOREXIA CHALLENGE - CAFFÈ NERO CHRISTMAS PANINI TASTE TEST! We tried the Caffè Nero panini on Friday yaaay! Did it beat Starbucks? Thinking we are professional food reviewers haha! And I got a new coat, wooo! Link is in my bio of course, check it out if you’d like!
Something you guys may not know about me, is that this bowl contains 2 foods that I used to “not be able to eat”😵 . . Avocados & Mushrooms...seemingly insignificant and definitely harmless foods were just a few of the dozens of foods that I told myself I could eat. I was convinced they would make my stomach hurt, bring on a migraine, or make me break out. . . Two foods that contain crazy amazing nutrients & are also delicious, I didn’t eat, not because I was actually allergic, but because I let my anxiety & fear create a reality for myself around them so that I could have one more thing to blame a problem on, that wasn’t the actual cause at all. . . The problem was never the food itself but rather my poor relationship with myself, and my need to feel 110% in control at all times. I had a problem, I needed a stone cold answer for why...and 99% of the time, I let myself blame food. . . If you currently have a food or list of foods that you tell yourself you “can’t eat”...I want you to ask yourself one thing...WHY?! . . Why don’t you eat it? Is that reason legitimate or something you made up? What is your body missing by not choosing to eat that food? . . I am doing a FREE training over in my FB group on how to start reincorporating foods into your diet, and will be helping ladies answer the questions above for themselves! Want in? Throw a comment below or check in the link in my bio!

When I was on my weight-loss journey, the holidays were a super stressful time for me. It was super stressful because I felt angry/sad that I couldn’t eat all of the good food around me for the holidays (anything chocolate peppermint is my weakness) I was also super stressed because mentally I thought even if I ate one bite or if I had one cookie it would somehow undue the months or years of hard work and I would be back at 500 pounds again. Also stressful because the holidays were a trigger for me where it was super easy to binge out and feel super upset with myself. What I learned along my journey and struggling with many holidays is to never forget what the true meaning of the holidays is all about. It’s not about the gifts, the food, the dessert, the calories, the macros, the stuffing your face, the shame, the food you eat/don’t eat, the guilt or regret. The holidays are about love. So why should we make it all about food- what we eat/ don’t eat. And why get upset with ourselves for the choices we are making. Once I realized that I I was in control, i felt more in control, especially around the holidays. The best advice I can give you is to do what’s best for you- what feels right for you! Remind yourself that it’s ok to have a cookie, it’s ok to enjoy grandmas famous fudge and it’s ok to chill out and remember what the holidays are all about! Love! Love for what’s truly important in life. Love for yourself! You are the one in charge of what you choose to do. So choose to be happy. Choose what’s right for you. Choose to love the choices you make without guilt or shame. Learn to trust yourself to do what you feel is right for you. For love is truly what the holidays are all about!

I Never was a huge fan of makeup, but my sister is really good at it and taught me some stuff so I’m like: why not? 🤷🏽‍♀️ Why do we over criticize people who use or don’t use make up? Not everyone uses it to “cover up their insecurities” some people just like it, and it should be just that. Wearing makeup is cool, not wearing make up is also cool. Some like getting dolled up to go nowhere or everywhere, while others think it’s a waste of time, and that’s FINE. Neither is right or wrong. Just do you and let others think what they want. Beauty is being able to accept both and still seeing yourself as a worthy human being. . Nunca fui muy fanática del maquillaje, pero mi hermana es muy buena en eso y me enseñó algunas cosas, así que me pregunto: ¿por qué no? 🤷🏽‍♀️ ¿Por qué criticamos demasiado a las personas que usan o no usan maquillaje? No todo el mundo lo usa para “cubrir sus inseguridades”, a algunas personas les gusta, y debería ser solo eso. Usar maquillaje es genial, no usar maquillaje también es bueno. A algunos les gusta verse bien maquillando/a para ir a ninguna parte o a cualquier lugar, mientras que otros piensan que es una pérdida de tiempo, y eso está BIEN. No es ni correcto o incorrecto. Solo hazlo y deja que otros piensen lo que quieran. La belleza es poder aceptar ambos y seguir valorándote a ti mismo como ser humano. . #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #recovery #recoveryisworthit #prorecovery #selflove #selfworth #selfcare #selfconfidence #confidence #happy #inspo #quotes #bodiposi #bodypositivity #nofilter #curvy #curvygirl #curvywomen #insta #instagood #instagram #instaquote #happiness #sandiego #lifestyle #food #love #makeup #tbt
