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
THEME DESIGN BY JAMESLREDFIELD

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

fitvillains:

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’m down. And I think the idea of such a world is a cause for celebration. Body BASH ON! Join us on FB!

I don’t have a facebook but you guys might like this,

Body ‘Bash’ Friday! Getting Down With Body Lovin’ All Day

justanotherhealthykat:

It can be a hard word to read or hear or see in person, no matter what I advocate or say to myself.

The way I eat now, the healthy way, I won’t be skinny.  My bones are well covered, and it’s just difficult at times. 

But seriously.

I love food and running and smiles and muscles and tummies and a healthy glow and insides that loves me right on back.

So no, I won’t be skinny.  I’m going to eat and smile and enjoy every extra bit I gain and tone.

If I want to live to be 113 with grand kids and great grand kids then this is how you do it.  Enjoy life.  Leave the diets for the squares and join the world of happy, hearty circles. 

xoxo

See in my head skinny can mean healthy, “thin” is unhealthy. If you are skinny you can have muscle and energy. When you are thin, you are tired..emaciated and weak, but your bones are showing and you are..thin. But you ma’am, are skinny, you are just also healthy. But you are not “thin”.

But I still don’t even come close to feeling the way you do. I don’t smile hardly at all, let alone all the time. I don’t want to be 113..I don’t even want to live to 80 and I DEFINIETLY don’t want to have grandchildren..I don’t even want children..at all. But I do love food and running, I don’t know you are just so happy I don’t understand it..cause the way you tie it to your lifestyle makes me feel like I am doing it wrong hah,

"Skinny."

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
+
Anyone free to talk?:/

Having kind of a hard time,

I am really afraid I am starting to relapse.

So lately it feels like my health is failing I am getting ill a lot, and I think I am gaining weight.

I don’t know if it’s something I am doing but it’s this big spiral.

The ickier I feel, the less I work out; the less I work out, the ickier I feel.

I generally eat healthy and everything, I don’t know 

I just have been relapse-y lately. I obviously haven’t gone back to my old ways but those bad thoughts have definitely been creeping their way back in..I have been doing well fighting it but it’s getting so hard.

Anyone free to talk?

+
Could anyone give me some advice or whatever it is I need..?

Every time I stretch and feel my back, I can feel the muscles from all these damn workouts. My back is getting beastly guys, I am like an animal XD

Not 6 months ago, my back was this lifeless thing with the spine sticking out.

Mm, I love seeing and feeling my body’s changes

So I was googling stuff, and one of the results brought me to My Fitness Pal

I used this site for a little while a while back. In fact, I logged in and my info said I was 80 pounds trying to get to 85. And I still had my calories set at 1000. So, very beginning of recovery, last time I used it.

Okey so I was like well now I want to see how much this thinks I should eat.

I made a new account..put in my info (roughly 100 lbs. 5’2”. Girl. 17. Lot’s of activity). And it said 1800. Now the site I used last week said to get 2,245.

That is a 400 calorie difference..a small meal.

Not even concidering the fact that as a recovered/recovering anorexic it has been said that I will need to eat more calories to maintain my weight. (Not sure how true this is or how much more I am supposed to eat)

Now I don’t count them because I fear that will trigger me. But I keep in mind a rough estimate of how much I have had so I know that I have gotten enough. And if there was a difference of say 100 calories on these two sites I would just be like ehh, close enough. But when it’s a small meal that I could be under or over eating, it makes me wonder how much I am supposed to get..

If anyone could get at my ask box to help me out with this it would be greatly appreciated!!

I would have written more but dinner is done.

Okey what the hell, the site I just tried said I should have 1360. I don’t fucking think so,

Guys If anyone here knows anything about this stuff (which I am assuming at least half of my followers do) could you help me out, please?

Hit me up.

This time last year I was doing the Just Get Skinny January Challenge..

This practically shoved my eating disorder into over drive and things only went worse from there and continued on that track until May, when I was this close *shows how close with fingers* to being hospitalized.

Fortunately, I am in a better place now and would love love love to do another challenge that is actually healthy for me! It definitely helps me stay on track.

Let me know!

If anyone wants to let me know of a good fitness challenge group?
