I really wish I lived next door to someone who has had similar ED problems. 
Sometimes I just wanna curl up in a ball, cry and vent to someone who knows what it feels like. 
I wanna tell mom but I don’t want to worry her. 
Sometimes I vent to my sister or best friends but they don’t understand so their advices really don’t resonate with what I need to hear. Plus they don’t live here so i cant even get a long warm hug.
I hate this so much. 
I think the stress of school and ED is getting to me.
I feel so helpless. I just don’t see the point of this. I’m working my ass off to be skinny, to excel at school, to have a stable future career and for what? So I can die in the end? 
This is so stupid.

❥ 𝚌𝚛𝚘𝚒𝚜𝚜𝚊𝚗𝚝 (tw; leider von einem essbrechanfall aber ich fand das foto halt schön. sorry, aber ich möchte da halt einfach ehrlich sein; twe) 😶
-
in ein paar tagen ist es so weit & ich komme in die schönklinik.
der anruf heute hat mich total überrumpelt & ich konnte gar nicht damit umgehen, weil es eben so plötzlich kam. 😅
ehrlich gesagt hab ich richtig angst davor.
ich fühle mich irgendwie noch nicht bereit dazu, aber werde trotzdem mein bestes geben.
jetzt am wochenende steht erst mal feiern & wandern an, da freu ich total! 😍
nochmal richtig die sau rauslassen bevor es ernst wird, haha. 🤭

Guten Abend!

Endlich Wochenende! Und das Gute ist, dass ich sogar ein langes Wochenende habe, weil ich Montag und Dienstag auch noch frei habe. Aber eigentlich hätte es mir auch garnicht so viel ausgemacht, wenn ich an den beiden Tagen Uni gehabt hätte, weil ich mich so langsam an den Unialltag gewöhnt habe und viele Vorlesungen auch sehr interessant sind. Leider ist die Vorlesungszeit aber bald vorbei (sind glaube noch so 2-3 Wochen) und dann kommt die Klausurenphase 🤯
Ab 50% gelten die Klausuren als bestanden, wenn man darunter kommt, muss man zur Nachklausur. Die Nachklausuren sind im März und da wollte ich eigentlich nachhause fahren, aber ich rechne schon damit, dass ich einige Klausuren nicht bestehe. Ich mache mir da aber garkeinen Druck, lasse alles auf mich draufzukommen und sehe dann eben, wie die Dinge sich ergeben. Wie unnötig wäre es, jetzt darüber nachzudenken, was passieren würde, wenn dies oder jenes wäre.

Ich war heute übrigens das erste Mal im Fitnessstudio und es war total gut! Die Atmosphäre war super und es macht viel mehr Spaß, als irgendwo alleine rumzujoggen. Eigentlich wollte ich garkein Krafttraining machen, habs dann aber doch mal probiert und fands garnicht so schlecht! Hab natürlich erstmal nur das niedrigste Gewicht eingestellt 😂
Wenn jemand kaum Kraftmuskeln hat, dann bin ich das. Ich neige glaube dazu, eher rote Muskeln (Ausdauer) aufzubauen. Liegt natürlich auch daran, dass ich noch nie Kraftsport gemacht habe.

Habt einen entspannten Abend! 🥰

Dinns today was my second burger ever. The one in the picture was the one my mom had, because i forgot to take a picture of my own. I din't have the cheese and a bit more veggies. It was really good, but quite filling. This is okay. We had a theme day about suffering and loss at school today. This afternoon we saw a film in this theme. I got triggerd by the film, due to this i cried while leaving the movie theatre. I also couldn't sleep at all last night (insomnia is a bitch) so i've been tired all day and my emotions have been all over the place. I've cried a lot today and i've been feeling so sad and lonely. I really hope i get some sleep tonight. I hope everyone had a better day. Keep fighting.🍀💕🌸

It’s hard to see milestones when they happen. But really, this was such a big day for me. This was the first time I decided to take a picture without sucking in, without shame, without anything but relaxation and acceptance. I remember looking at the picture after I took it and thinking “huh. That’s how I look. That’s not too bad actually.” This isn’t an easy thing for me. I’ve deliberated this post for several months now. But. Here it is. So many negative thoughts try to push me from being authentic. From speaking my truth. I keep telling myself that no one wants to see me “airing my dirty laundry” so to speak. But I think it’s important for my journey to be brutally authentic. Not so much because it will help others (although I hope it might). But more so that it will help me. I’m learning to be gentle with my folds. To kindly touch my curves. It doesn’t come easy. Not at all. My belly has always been a huge point of insecurity for me. As a teenager I’d fold my arms over it so no one would see. I still do. I nick named it “pizza dough” since it felt soft and thick and round. It was in jest but it always stung when I’d hear it said about my stomach. I’d imagine slicing it off with an exacto knife. I’ve been through nearly every diet on the planet. Keto. Weight watchers. Military diet. Water fasts. I’ve impacted my health (and moments that could be richer and more vibrantly lived) obsessing over abs. And it’s reiterated ever time I see a billboard for fat freezing therapies or skinny no-calorie diet desserts or one that especially frustrates me: “diamonds were a girls best friend until Botox came along”. Diet-culture is telling me that I should be ashamed of the way my body looks when I sit. When I stand. The way I look without eyelashes glued on to my eyelids. I’m not perfect. And I know I have a mental eating disorder that makes everything in this topic seem bigger and bolder than necessary. But I’m me. And maybe that’s enough. Maybe that can be enough for me until tomorrow. 🤍 for anyone going through the same eating disorder, please know you are more beautiful than you know. People love you in more ways than how you look. You do not exist to look perfect. 💛

Food = Fuel, and Yum!! I love cooking, and one of the things that really sucked before recovery, was how I never cooked anymore. Ever since I was little I just enjoyed cooking so much. It’s fun to be creative with food, and honestly it’s a way for me to relax and calm myself down when I have anxiety. Once I went vegan, cooking became even more exciting because I was introduced to a whole new world of recipes, ingredients, tips, and tricks! And I plan on sharing them with you guys! .

Here I made lemon basil grilled tofu (I love tofu a lot lol), sautéed broccoli and onions, with a side of balsamic basil rice. It all went super well together and was absolutely delicious!! .

If you’re looking for a way to take your mind off of things in a super healthy way, try cooking/baking! It seems like a chore to so many, but it’s honestly so much fun. But that’s just me :P

Be Well 🦋💜

Living v existing -

Miriam. Why have you got Haribo on your face? Well lying down on my bed  asked to my neice throw me a couple...and  she poured the whole bag on my face! 🤣 At one time In my life I would have freaked now I laugh and she snaped a picture because and I quote 'mimi it looked really funny, (she calls me mimi) and we then played a game...a game of how many of my face Haribo can she get into her mouth! 🤣 (it was five) -

Why am I telling this story? Because to me this story is living,  what matters is the memory and food just happens to be a part of it. What made this moment was me and neice, not the eating disorder,  to me that's living. -

Living with an eating disorder is existing,  living outside of the eating disorder is living. -

In the story I just told I was living not existing. Don't just exist live ❤ -

Here is my body, I hate my body but I love it too. 
I hate how it looks, how it feels and how clothes dont fit me right. I hate how I cant afford nice cloths for plus size girls, and i hate how i can only fit in mens shirts and yoga pants. But the best thing about being a big girl is my kids lay on me and call me a pillow. 
But i love my legs, my breasts haha  and how I look in dresses even though I feel uncomfortable in them I still try my best to put on a happy smile and feel like I. Beautiful no matter what I look like or what I wear. It's hard, yes I know. 
This week I have been working hard at not letting Ed puth his way out. I failed but I quickly recovered from it and remembered that I am strong and I am invisible! I am a warrior in a war that I will win. With God, family, and friends cheering me on and helping me up when I fall  is what keeps me going. If i didn't have them I would be nothing. 
Having a faith and support behind is everything to me. I will not stop till that number shows 125lbs, I will not stop until all my cloths are so big on me that they fall off. I will not stop until I am unable to keep going. I will keep pushing you back ED i will fight for the rest of my life to keep you away. I will never stop trying. I will win!

How can you use anxiety to help your recovery?

There is a certain kind of anxiety one feels when recovery from an eating disorder. 
You know what I’m talking about.
It is a life or death surge of fear that could stop you in your tracks.  The panic type of anxiety that delays recovery actions and stop you from eating or resting.

That anxiety can be used to help you recover.  Yes.

Anxiety is not comfortable it feels horrible but it is that anxiety that can also direct you where to go in recovery.  Instead of fearing the anxiety or the fear, I encourage you to listen to it.  Pay attention, where does the fear and/or resistance come up? Then follow that anxiety. Don’t let the anxiety hold you back instead get curious and seek it out. .

An example would be at the store you are picking up groceries and you hear the fear don’t buy that or this and then millions rules thoughts, feelings come in.  Instead of running away without buying the food STOP, listen and then say to yourself, “I hear you fear.” Tell the fear you hear it and you are listening. Next buy the food because that is exactly what ED doesn’t want you to do.  Another example maybe you are given a choice between two options of what to eat, choose the one that causes you the most fear. 
Yes, I am suggesting you walk into the fear.  Walking into the fear is how you overcome it.  If you are having trouble resting or sitting down then that is what the challenge is to sit down. Whatever causes the anxiety whether it’s resting or eating or what to eat. Follow it and teach your brain and body it is safe. 
Learn to use the anxiety as a guide on where you need to work your recovery.  Overtime the anxiety will decrease as your brain and body learns it doesn’t need to fear eating or resting.

Give it a try and let me know how it works out for you. Use your tools to manage the anxiety like breathing and I have written posts on other tools. 
Turn it into a game...play seeking out the fear and overtime you won’t have the game to play anymore because you will be free.

This was me at the height of my runway career. 
While you look at this photo you might see a tall, skinny girl. 
What you don’t see is that I would starve myself before runway shows, and then binge on McDonalds as soon as I got home. Then I would do it all over again. 
There were days I would live off granola bars and SlimFast, and days where I would binge Chinese food. 
As soon as I got out of modeling I finally started to learn what having a good relationship with food actually was. I still was far from perfect, and now more than ever I feel like I need to overcome these demons once more. 
When I look in the mirror after having my baby I’m tempted to do what I used to do. Starve myself to lose weight fast. But I’m determined to not go down that path again. This year my mantra is to become healthy not skinny. 
I will be healthy for my family and for myself ❤️ #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisordersupport #eatingdisorder #bingeeating #runwaymodel #healthynotskinny #healthy #myjourney #myjourneytofit #myjourneytohealth #nomore #weightlossjourney

This was me at the height of my runway career. While you look at this photo you might see a tall, skinny girl. What you don’t see is that I would starve myself before runway shows, and then binge on McDonalds as soon as I got home. Then I would do it all over again. There were days I would live off granola bars and SlimFast, and days where I would binge Chinese food. As soon as I got out of modeling I finally started to learn what having a good relationship with food actually was. I still was far from perfect, and now more than ever I feel like I need to overcome these demons once more. When I look in the mirror after having my baby I’m tempted to do what I used to do. Starve myself to lose weight fast. But I’m determined to not go down that path again. This year my mantra is to become healthy not skinny. I will be healthy for my family and for myself ❤️ #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisordersupport #eatingdisorder #bingeeating #runwaymodel #healthynotskinny #healthy #myjourney #myjourneytofit #myjourneytohealth #nomore #weightlossjourney - 29 minutes ago

Hi guys, ok taking a mental health day. I really wanted to workout but I’m feeling kinda down, drained and a little sorry for myself so might just curl up with a good positive book tonight. One of the people who thrives on making my life a misery, has reported me again for benefit fraud so whilst they investigate it we have very little income. Then I went to my Dr appointment about my weight and have been put firmly back in the active anorexia file. Been referred to a dietician to see if they can help. I’m still allowed to lift thankfully as I’ve been doing it long enough to read the signs of my body but there’s a pretty long waitlist for a dietician/nutritionist so this may be a longer process than I’d like. I will readily admit that I crumbled under the stress as it’s always seems like one thing after another but I will say that whilst I have anorexia, it does not have me and I will continue to fight it till it’s stone cold dead 💪🏼🤷🏻‍♀️💜 #gymshark66 #mentalrest #eatingdisorder  #weightgainjourney #setbacktocomeback #igotthis #anorexia #Ihaveit #itdoesnthaveme #ptsdwarrior

Today's SNACK Action Thanks to @questeurope 🔥🔥🔥 Their Peanut Butter Cookies, delivering a madd peanut buttery taste, similar to that of the powder peanut kind, all for less than 2g of sugar! 🙌🙌🙌 Made in the EU meaning they're easier to get and much, much tastier than their American cousins 👌👌 Also available in @hollandandbarrett which for me is a massive convenience 💯💯

One of my friends got me an amazing book for Christmas which I really connected with. This is one of the pages from it which I wanted to share with all you lovely people... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Quite often I feel like things will never be okay again. I feel I will never smile again. I will never laugh again. I will never be happy again. I wish so badly I could go back to my old life. I wish I could have my old body back before I got sick. Some days I struggle to see a future for me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I know there is one. And I know things will get better for me, even if it doesn’t feel like it right now. There will be days I will smile, laugh and feel happy again. And one day when I am happy I will be so pleased I never gave up. I will be so pleased I carried on fighting even when I saw no reason to continue. I will be so pleased I got up when I hit rock bottom. It may not always seem like it but things will be okay again. Just stay strong 🌸🦋✨ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
