Yay! I really like this.

I'm not "in control" when I'm restricting. But I am in control when I don't! :)

I know, doesn't it? They say depression can be improved by tablets of essential fatty acids.

It's perfectly okay to be hungry after lunch. Especially if lunch wasn't adequate. Go deal, Johanna.

Recently I've found myself lying awake at night worrying. I realised I can use this, and it helped a bit:

Can I fix what I am worrying about?

Yes -> excellent, there's a solution. I can carry that out tomorrow. Sleep now.

No -> well, then, there's nothing I can do to change it. Why worry? Sleep now.


It helps sometimes. :)

Kind of obvious, but I'm never going to be happy at this weight because at this weight I'm always going to have an eating disorder.

I need to stop weighing myself. I thought I could be one of those people who weighs themself and is okay with it, can cope with it, it's no big deal. That is not the case at all. It is time to try and stop.

I actually like mashed potatos
I've spent years saying that, that I actually believed it...
But its not true!
Mashed potatos are not evil, they are yummy!!

There is no point in postponing my life until I've become prepared for life, until I've become some sort of perfect, imaginary person. That won't happen.

Life is always now.

To live the future I want for myself, I only have to choose to handle the present moment wisely.

Somehow recovery is far less daunting when it's broken into, "I'm choosing to eat at meal time right now," instead of "you must live this way forever."

"Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming….. WOO HOO…. What a RIDE!"

I read the quote above this afternoon and it really resonated with me. I realized how far away i am from this. I want to be screaming woo hoo and totally experiencing and enjoying life and all it has to offer. To do this i have to stop going back to the same old things....worn out coping mechanisms. They do not work, they are dangerous and stop me from truly enjoying life. Time for some change me thinks!

A step backwards is just that-- a single step back. It is not a sign that one is doomed, somehow destined to inevitably fall 10 yards backwards, to relapse back into old behaviors. It's just a trip up, slip up. You can keep moving forward.

Not obsessively counting calories is so fricking liberating.
