Recovery Support and Achievements! - January 6th 2009, 03:00 PM

Edit by Jessie: Welcome to the "Recovery Support and Achievements!" thread, a combination of the "Recovery Support Thread" And "What have YOU done for recovery today?" threads!

Please feel free to post here for the following:
  • Support with recovery.
  • Achievements on your road to recovery.
Please do NOT post:
  • Weight numbers, calorie intake, or anything else that violates TeenHelp's Terms of Service.
  • Asking for advice. Please create a new thread for this purpose, to ensure you receive responses.


I thought i would start a Recovery Support Thread on here, since the last one was lost. This is for SUPPORT Only! Please don't give out any weight numbers, calorie intake, diet tips, etc. I am doing good with my eating problems,a nd i'm proud of myself.

Hi again!

im doing great too! i actually dont remember when i stopped. couldnt have been more than a month ago. i think increasing my ADD meds dose helped a lot. i felt a lot more in control of myself. today i badly wanted to purge, but i DID NOT; because id made it this far without doing it.

i WILL stay strong!
grrr!

i still find it impossible not to obsess about anything food related. ie. cals, quantities,calculating, feeling full= "bad", not satisfying; 24/7.

am i still doing "okay"? what if it just turns into something else?

I think your doing okay, what do you think? It all depends on what you think on how your are doing. It doesn't depend on my thoughts, it depends on how you Perceive the definition of the word “Okay."

hey laurax.. it'll be ok (: you're strong and you can overcome all those thoughts that are simply bringing you down. talk to someone k hun?

for me.. i am bulimic... i've my relapses but i'm doing relatively ok since last year when i normally purge up to 8 times a day... now it's like.. only 3 times a week! but i still get depressed over food, and hate myself for eating.. but i'm still fighting it..
stay strong everyone!

God, give me the strength i need...

okay so i guess i made it.
i got past needing to purge. but i hate how i only recently managed to say loud and proud that id stopped, and now im seriously wanting to. i havent, but ive had a bad day of badly wanting to, because i ate "too much". i cant honestly say that "too much" is actually too much. but one step at a time, right? im just glad i made it through the night. tomorrow is a fresh new day.

thank you kaylee!!

What have YOU done for recovery today? - January 11th 2009, 06:37 PM

I found this on a different site, I think it's a really great idea.

"
What this does is it allows me to focus on my progress instead of the things I perhaps didn’t do so well at.

So i invite you all to start doing this with me. I think it would be healthiest if we didn’t include numbers, or specific foods and though this may sound like it limits what you can post I promise it does.

For example there is no need to say ‘I ate X amount of calories’ or ‘I had <specific food> for breakfast’ but rather it would be healthier for us to post things like ‘I ate a healthy amount today’ or ‘I ate out with a friend’ or ‘I found out my weight is back in a healthy bracket’. it would even be great if it wasnt food, weight or anything of the sort related such as... ‘I wore a pretty dress that made me feel GORGEOUS’ or ‘I really worked hard in therapy’"

Okay, so I'll start.

I ate 2 whole meals today [=

Re: Recovery Support Thread - January 12th 2009, 05:04 PM

okay so ive had another bad day. but i made it through the last one, so i know i can do it again.
at least now i know that i particularly need to focus during times of stress.

im beginning to be able to rationalise with myself when things get tough, and to force myself to calm down when i start panicking. its hard, but itll get easier, i know it.
every day that i consciously reject binge/purging is another battle won.

Today, I'm working on a fictional story about my problems with food. I also offered to talk to someone if they needed to talk.

This is a great Idea, and this thread should be stickied

probably not what qualifies as "breakfast and lunch foods", but i ate a reasonable amount at both times.
its hard. very hard. im slightly scared of what ive done, but im proud as well. i was with someone, so i couldnt exactly lose control, which was good.

Taylor - YOU ARE SOOOOO STRONG!!! Don't let a stupid little thing like food bring you down, eh? You're simply too wonderful, and that's final. PM me?

Recovering from my ED is super painful. I can't stand ingesting food without getting it out of me later (which I haven't in about 7 months), but people around me are suspicious that I'm back on an ED because I exercise a lot, so in order to counter that, I eat fattening food, and it hurts my psyche so badly... GAAAAH!!!!!!

peace and love

Today, I told MJ that next month will be six months since the last time I purged.

I can't believe where I'm at today. I've also had a lot of foods that were previously on my bad list and I'm proud that I can now eat them and be okay with it.

Today, while I was having a snack I sat and reflected. 9 months ago, six months ago, I wouldn't have been able to eat that snack. If I would have slipped and eaten it, I would have thrown it up and then exercised.

I've come so far really. Sometimes it shocks me even.
