26978) I started dieting when I was x age because my mom said that I had to. I’m y age now, and I have bulimia and BED. I never stopped “dieting.” My mom ruined my life.

I have a question about one of your body selcas. When someone inquired about your waist size, you thanked them and said that "you've come a long way from where you started." Do you work out a lot? What kind of exercises do you do to make your waist size thinner? I'm just curious because I'd also like to shapen up myself and your pic could be a bit motivating for myself. I hope I can make myself out to be as pretty as you one day. Btw, don't answer this if you aren't comfortably answering.

Nah, that’s okay.^^ Under a cut, just in case.

I don't want any of this to come off rude, but I'm just curious, you obviously love your body which is awesome, but you've said that you were 220+ pounds. You're gorgeous but do you plan to try to lose weight, or try to be healthier? Again I'm not meaning any of this in a rude way, and I know it's none of my business whether you are or aren't, but I'm just curious. I love your page by the way!

I almost deleted this message but I think it’s important.

You said you love my blog, so I’m assuming that you’ve probably read some of my posts about eating disorders. You may or may not be aware of this: I am an eating disorder survivor. I have spent the last few years recovering from a seemingly endlessly changing disorder that sucked the pleasure out of my life for nine years. That’s nine years of a much thinner me looking in the mirror and hating myself for eating just enough to survive. That’s nine years of obsessive exercise and diuretic abuse. That’s nine years of weighing myself every morning and counting every calorie ingested and burned. So when you ask if I am ever going to “try be healthier,” you are assuming that I am the way that I am due to some lack of effort on my part. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Beating my ED and learning to love myself was and is a fucking battle.

As for the other part of that question where you ask if I will ever try to lose any weight, let me just answer that one with a straight up no. I will never try to lose weight, ever again. Doesn’t mean I’ll never change anything about my habits if I need to, but that’s not the same thing as trying to “lose weight.” That’s an important distinction. I’m not going to try to alter myself if I’m comfortable with who I am just to fit into what the rest of the world considers to be the ideal. And neither should you.

I know you meant well with this message (since you framed your question in so very many nice compliments) and I hope you know I truly mean well with this response. What I’m trying to show you is that there is more than one way to be happy, and that you should never assume you know someone’s happiness or well-being better than they do.

I never want to diet or deprive myself of some of the foods I love but losing some weight would be nice!!

Could I stand to lose some lbs? Yes and I would like to if only I had a workout Buddy and by work out buddy I mean someone to go exploring with and maybe shoot some hoops, have a catch or throw a frisbee with. Not actually going to the gym to work out although I would consider that for the right price. I just never want to feel the need to have to go on a diet. I think diet is a bad word not bad just having healthy eating habits added to your life without ever depriving yourself of some of the foods you enjoy. I Never want to have to lose weight to get a date if you won’t date someone because of a little extra weight then they weren’t right for you in the first place!! :)

"Lifestyle Change"

I hate the term diet. Always have. If I start a diet on Monday, you can bet that by Tuesday afternoon I have forgotten all about that I am not allowing certain foods to cross my lips and, "Sure, why thank you, I’d love to take that extra piece of cheesecake off your hands!“ Ha. Eventually, I realize my mistake and begin hating on myself for it and we all know how the story of an emotional eater goes. 
I either crave food incessantly or am just not interested all together. Still, time after time I find myself "dieting”. Well now it stops. 

I WILL NEVER DIET AGAIN. That’s right people (And okay, I know this is my first post so i don’t even have people here yet but y'all will find me((I hope)) .) 

I will however, be taking on a lifestyle change tomorrow. I will plan my goals for the future regarding my mind, soul, and body. It is possible for all to become fit and I want to prove it to myself that I have what it takes wedged somewhere inside of me. 

And lastly, I hope that by doing taking better care of my body, mind, and soul, I will inspire myself to dream even bigger and inspire others to take charge of their being. 

How To Fix Your Metabolism And Never Diet Again
Do you hate your skinny friend who can eat and eat and not gain an ounce? I used to too! Thinner people have high metabolisms so they can burn food off and never have it turn into fat. Almost all overweight people have low metabolisms, which doesn’t allow them to burn off what they eat at the same rate of slender people do.So why are obese people’s metabolisms low? Why do fat people have constant hunger pangs, food cravings, and eat when they aren’t even hungry? The main reason for a low metabolism is an abnormal operating hypothalamus gland. But what causes this gland to become abnormal? There are many reasons: a clogged colon, a clogged liver, Candida yeast overgrowth, trans fats, growth hormones and antibiotics in food, food additives, not enough sun, not enough sleep, not enough walking, yo-yo dieting, nutritional deficiencies, eating genetically modified food, non-prescription and prescription drugs, high fructose corn syrup, chlorine and fluoride from the water you drink and bathe in, chemicals from shampoos and lotions you put on your skin, sugary drinks and excessive stress. How many of these bad boys apply to you? This list is scary, especially if more than 2 of these apply to you. But, these factors can be easily changed, and your low metabolism fixed to function the way it is supposed to, which means a thin you!Let’s take a closer look at why you have intense hunger and food cravings, where thin people do not.A clogged colon - if you are not having 2-3 bowel movements EVERYDAY you have a clogged colon. Colons get clogged from prescription and non-prescription drugs, not enough water, fiber or exercise - even just not enough walking enough can clog your colon. If your colon isn’t clean then your metabolism will stay slow, and your intense hunger and food cravings won’t go away.A clogged liver - practically every obese person tested has a sluggish, clogged liver. This is caused by trans fats, hydrogenated oils and artificial sweeteners. A clogged liver means a low metabolism and the perfect condition for storing extra body fat.Candida yeast overgrowth - our intestines have both good and bad bacteria. When we take antibiotics our good bacteria is destroyed, which allows bad bacteria, including Candida yeast to grow. Candida yeast causes gas and bloating, as well as intense cravings for bread, pasta and sugar.Not enough water - the average person is so dehydrated, and they don’t’ even realize it.Pop and sugary drinks - these bad boys block calcium absorption, which leads to nutritional deficiency that lowers your metabolism.Not enough sun - vitamin D is so good for us. The sun stimulates our metabolism and it helps relieve stress and depression.Not enough sleep - causes our cortisol levels to rise, keeping us in a constant state of stress, which can lead to obesity, and weight gain in general.Yo-Yo Dieting - this one is super aggravating. You go on a diet, lose weight just to gain it back, and then you do it again, and again, and maybe even again. And the worst part (as if the misery of dieting isn’t enough) you actually lower your body’s internal thermostat and your natural, internal body weight set point. Every time you do this, diet on, diet off, diet on, you actually lower your metabolism!This list goes far beyond what I have outlined. If you are overweight this list is probably overwhelming, knowing how unhealthy you are inside and how your abnormally low metabolism is keeping you fat. The good news is you can correct your metabolism quickly and easily, and be on your way to a healthy, thinner you.By Kate Cameron

This was never a diet gone wrong.

Because I’ve had friends that have been on diets and lost their periods and then they start eating normally again .
When I lost my period it didn’t fase me I didn’t care if anything it just proved that I was dying.

People on diets don’t have doctors telling you you could go into a coma or that you would of been dead in a week.

Because people on diets don’t punch walls or throw glasses bowls and run away when they are forced to eat a apple.

Because people on diets don’t stay awake until 3am every night because you burn more calories when you’re awake.

People on diets don’t end up being hooked to heart monitors because their tiny heart wanted to pack it’s bags and flee.

People on diets don’t end up having a tube down their nose being forced fed because if anything passed your lips it would be the end of the world.

This was never a diet gone wrong
