My name is Samantha. I am 17. A year ago I was suffering from anorexia. Now that I am back to a normal weight and have less anxiety related to my food and weight, I want to put my energies towards getting fit. And so this blog was created.
are Fabulous and Fit
and he was saying to her that she can’t starve herself and should eat regularly throughout the day or her body will retain it all and he was also saying that she could have the hardest abs but if its under everything, she will never be able to see it.
And then I went up to her and asked if I could help her and I told her about how I had dealt with an eating disorder and I just talked to her about stuff and I am going to print out my foodjournal for her so she can see like sample days of good eats. And I am going to talk to her tomorrow and see if she’ll tell me her height and weight and stuff so I can work out a food plan. I really hope I can help her. It kills me. She has seriously broken down crying in front of me during running days because she hates her body so much, but then she just treats it so awfully and I have tried to tell her that “skinny” does not mean beautiful, but she just ran off to the bathroom (this was a few weeks back though).
I am not her biggest fan but no one deserves to hate their body, it’s the only body you get and everyone should learn to appreciate it for what it is. And I don’t want this to escalate further than it already has, she wasn’t this bad last semester from what I could tell..so.
I think I am also going to print out healthy inspirational quotes and things. If she had internet I would direct her to some of your guys’ blogs but she doesn’t:/
Hopefully she does let me help her though! I kind of want to go into nutrition and personal training so this would be a cool “test”, you know Plus I want her to have a happier healthier body, and to feel comfortable in her own skin..learn how to appreciate her body.
Any tips or quotes you guys think I should definitely include for her? Just in case I don’t remember something?
So this girl in my gym class is trying desperately to lose weight and I came up to her as she was talking to my gym teacher
Body Bash Friday is happening over on FB. Join in & let us know why YOU love your body!
We’re spending the WHOLE day celebrating, accepting, appreciating, loving & pumping positivity up in this bitch. That means no body shaming, no negative talking, no judging ANYONE’s body (including yours), no comparing, no ‘fat’ talk and no ‘once I lose 5lbs’ etc.
YOU can participate by…
1. Letting me know what YOU love about your body.
2. Offering tips on how others can help beat back negative thinking.
3. Doing the post-it challenge (coming up: snap a pic & tag me in it!)
4. Sharing body positive sentiments your followers/fans/friends etc. All bodies (please, no skinny vs. curvy. Not body lovin’).
We focus TOO HEAVILY on fixing & hating our “flaws”, but who decided what was considered a flaw? The word ‘flaw’ is totally inappropriate: a better word? ‘Hangups’. There’s nothing flawed about cellulite, scars, muffin tops, stretch marks, birth marks, bra fat, arm jiggle or anything else you might fixate on. That’s the point. Imperfection is normal. The fact that we’re so desperate to “fix” these imperfections is the problem. And we spend TOO much energy doing so.
Today, millions of women will spend time treating their bodies hatefully. They will berate themselves, compare themselves, starve themselves, overfeed themselves, feel shame, feel anger, feel hopeless, buy products to ‘fix’ themselves, mask their ‘flaws’, comment (even in their heads) on other women’s bodies etc, etc, etc. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had ENOUGH. No more.
What our bodies DO is more important than what they look like. ‘Healthy’ doesn’t have a size or a number. It’s okay to love your body, as it is, for what it does. Other people’s opinions are between them and their self-esteem (thanks Mama). Most importantly, NO ONE can hate themselves happy OR healthy. It doesn’t work that way. Body love starts from the head down, not the body up.
Imagine waking up in a world where you didn’t feel the need to change a THING about your body? And, even if you did, imagine that desire coming from a place of self-love and not hate? Imagine if we all stopped ‘fixing’ what isn’t broke, and started re-inventing ourselves instead?
I don’t have a facebook but you guys might like this,
Body ‘Bash’ Friday! Getting Down With Body Lovin’ All Day
i’d take the 5 pounds of muscle over the fat any day.
This is why you shouldn’t worry so much about the number. You could weigh yourself one day and by 130lbs and then for 6 months you run, lift and do yoga, other fun forms of exercise and toning and you eat right.. and at that point you look way more toned and you feel better, so you get back on the scale and you’re 124lbs. Only a 6 pound difference! Now, go back in time and say instead of working out and eating healthy all you do is run and eat as little as possible, the number on the scale will go down but your body won’t really look a whole lot better. You end up getting to 115 but your but is flat, your chest is flat your stomach is just kind of blegh, you’re tired and don’t have energy.. so the number is great but your body..not so much. GO WITH HOW YOU FEEL. Not the number xx Remember muscle weighs more than fat!

So this morning I made a smoothie and didn’t have time to make toast. Then I couldn’t find the feta to pack, and I forgot to pack almonds.
So up until I got home I had eaten a smoothie (the only actual calories coming from the spoonful of greek yogurt), a salad (which was only vegetables so pretty much no calories), and an orange. Then I came home to find out..salads for dinner. So I put it on some bread with hummous to make a veggie sandwich but..still I don’t think my body is too happy right now, it’s hardly gotten any nutrients or calories:/
It would probably help if I were in a better state of mind because I don’t entirely mind..seriJWIeuAIWOue
Need to get my shit together fast,
Need to eat better in the school day so I am not just pigging out at dinner,
fucking„ this whole relapse-y mentality needs to goo,
Blehhhh had a whooole lot of bread with dinner.
Just a warning.
I can’t slip. I need to stay healthy.
Sorry if I post more recovery-esque type things for a bit
