There's enough going on already without adding unnecessary worries.

Getting "bigger" didn't change me as a person. My friends still like me, my family still love me, people still say hi to me on the street. It really isn't this life-shattering experience I had invisioned.

In fact, I feel a bit happier now. :-)

Just everything here :) only things that are fabulous and lovely can come from recovery!

Me too. I have gained weight, and although I still need to gain more to repair my body, I am starting to recover physically and emotionally, and feel proud of all I did to support Eating Disorders Awareness Week here in BC. Women all over the province told their stories in print media, radio and TV, and aside from being the instigator and cheerleader, I personally published two op-eds in the major newspapers in BC as well as going on CBC radio live to talk about EDs.

A year ago, I could not have done that - physically, emotionally or cognitively.

I'm about the biggest I ever was in my life. I may not be able yet to feel okay about that fact, but I can't really remember a time when I felt that okay with myself and my life in general and when I had so much hope for my future before.

So, my weight is not all that matters. Not by far. It's pretty marginal, actually. :)


Also, I wanted to share this from my journal because it strikes me as something that applies to so many people here who cannot give the same kindness and respect to themselves they constantly give to others:

Standing up for oneself is important.
Not out of a sense of egotism and entitlement, but out of a sense for justice and respect. It also makes it easier to stand up for others


I think that suffering can make us bitter and resentful and that when we acquiesce to our own suffering it also gets harder and harder to acknowledge the suffering of offers.
When we understand why we deserve better, it may be easier to understand why those around us deserve better.
And vice versa, of course :)

I can't read minds and the only person I can guarantee to make happy is myself. I'm the only person who will be with me for my entire life, so I may as well like myself and treat myself right.

Your body is as perfect as you decide it is.

I need to stop using BMIs. I've been pretty sold on their irrelevance for a while, even tried explaining it to non-disordered folks, yet I keep using it a measure and thereby validating that it means jack squat. The answer for me is to just stop giving them any credence.
