Going cray ๐Ÿ˜œ with my housemate's faux fur

Friday means pizza friday, right? ๐Ÿ˜Ž Smoked Salmon & pineapple pizza for #mealoftheday and a bar of milk chocolate & popcorn for dessert ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿซ And the biggest victory was not purging!! That has happened every day during this week, so today I decided that it will stop once and for all. I won't purge, and I didn't! ๐Ÿ’ช

Feeling so good about myself, that I have the control now, not my anorexia. But me! I'm slightly anxious about the whole pizza, but hey, anxiety is just a feeling, caused by brain chemicals so it has nothing to do with the reality, which is that my body needs ridiculous amount of food! ๐Ÿซ

I didn't remember to update you, but my nurse called this morning and my potassium level is on the lower end of normal. So that's a good news, and in couple of weeks they'll check it again. But they are more worried of my kidneys, which are showing signs of malfunction. The doctor hasn't seen me in like half a year, but she was worried and they are keeping me close eye on.
Anorexia created a mess of those news, like there's nothing wrong with me, but that's just a big fat lie.
The reality is that my body is breaking apart, giving up. It can happen very soon or it may not happen but it may cause long-term damages.
The reality is that eating disorder kills ๐Ÿ’ฃ

But we don't have to settle and we shouldn't.
We should fight, and we will fight.
We will defeat this demon one moutful at a time, pizza by pizza.
So don't settle.
Face a new feardood today!
I fucking ate a PIZZA, so damn yeah YOU CAN DO IT, TOO!!! ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ’ฅ๐Ÿ’—

Energizing 245 years of retail experience at our Beast Nation 212 Summit...priceless talent who's life lessons on the floor can't be replaced. One extra degree of effort in business separates good from the great. Let's turn up the BEAST! #theextradegree #thrivenotsurvive

Feeling very excited to begin this journey with Ellilta Women at Risk here in Toronto! These scarves were handmade by ladies in Ethiopia who were once at risk on the streets trying to support themselves through prostitution. Through EWAR, these ladies receive counseling, support, education, and now a method of income generation that is sustainable and fair trade. I'm so proud and thankful that God placed me in this position of mission and service. Together with @thestoryofjanice , we have had the blessing of preparing with @elliltaproducts for the ATSC trade show, during which they will showcase their beautiful scarves to buyers from all over the world. This is a big step for all of us involved, so please keep us in your prayers as we manoeuvre these new experiences.To all those who have supported Janice and I throughout the summer, from modeling with us, giving us feedback, sewing tags in scarves, sponsoring flights, and everything in between, thank you! Thank you for seeing God's purpose for us and the ways in which he wishes to use our skills. If you're interested in the story behind these scarves or know someone who might be interested, please pay a visit to www.elliltaproducts.com. โ™กโ™กโ™ก

(Flashback picture from coma to doing an Ironman 70.3 with one arm that worked a few months later). Sometimes terrible things happen, but successful people learn and grow, unsuccessful people wallow and blame. Life has hit me with some hard punches that would have broken me if I wasn't willing to push, to fight for what I want, to achieve and obtain my goals, and willingness to suffer for goals. Well I took another hit recently and I am grateful for how painful it was/is because that's when I learn and grow. Yeah it sucks, but Game on life! Throw whatever you got at me, I'll persevere because that's not only what I do it's who I am. I'm also a good person that takes care of my friends and would sacrifice for them. #leggo #thrivenotsurvive

Honestly nothing describes my current feelings better. I feel entirely imprisoned by by my own mind, by my illness. The thing is I'm aware of my disorder, when I engage in a behavior it's like I'm watching someone else do it. I'm making it okay, telling myself this is a hard time for you it's okay to use these behaviors, they'll get you through. When things get less hard you'll do better. This is how you're coping.But how long can that last?
All the negatives are coming back
I'm obsessed with food it's all I think about
Yet I'm terrified of food
Exercising has become my release and constant obsession
I wake up in the middle of the night with extreme hunger and force myself to lie in bed and ignore it
I hurt all the time
I get lightheaded just standing up
Sitting hurts
I can't think clearly or focus
How is this helping why do I continue to give in to Anorexia blatant lies
Anorexia tells me it will keep me safe whilst actively trying to kill me
Anorexia promises me control as it slowly takes my control away
I want out
I can feel the resistance rising myself it gaining.
My compassionate heart is growing
Together We will fight
It will be hard, probably the hardest thing I'll ever do
But it will be worth it
We will win
I will be free
We can all be free
I hope you all are fighting today with all you have, you are worth it, the fight is worth it๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

One of them concert kinda days... ๐ŸŽต #jcole #amsterdam #4youreyezonlytour #thrivenotsurvive #instagood

It's Friday, people! ๐Ÿ™Œ
Breakfast was coconut oats with little bit of vanilla protein powder, and topped w/ nana, kiwi, cc and butter ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‘Œ.
.
I want to talk to you about hunger.
First of all, your #minniemaud minimums are just that: minimums, meaning you are expected to eat more. In the beginning of #edrecovery many wonder should they eat more, and the answer is YES!!! But if the extreme hunger hits you, you no longer wonder should you eat, because your body makes you eat. Not everyone gets EH, tho, but many do ๐ŸŸ๐Ÿ”.
.
If you wake up in the night and think of food... EAT! Go and grab something to eat, because even if you're asleep, your body never stops repairing all the damages starvation has caused.
The more you eat the better, so you do not need to think "is it okay or should I", because it IS OKAY and you SHOULD!
Because there is no such thing as too much food in recovery, and neither is too fast weight gain ๐Ÿ–

You can not eat too much in recovery.
You can not gain too much weight in recovery.
You can not gain too fast in recovery.
BUT,
You can eat too little, eat too clean, eat too little carbs and too little fats in recovery,
and you can gain too little and too slowly ๐Ÿ™…

You cannot control your body, because you will lose that battle. We are not as wise as our bodies are, and thank god! Otherwise human being wouldn't have survived alive!
The best solution is to radically accept everything that comes with recovery: weight gain, increased hunger, water retention, night sweats etc.
The more you reconnect with your body and radically accept all the aspects, the easier it is to navigate thru this. It will never be easy, but it becomes easier ๐ŸŒผ

Your job now is to EAT!
Eat, and explore new foods.
Eat, and find new fave foods.
Eat, and rest.
Eat, and allow your body to heal and become strong again โœจ

Wishing you all a lovely Friday! ๐Ÿ’—

โ–ช๏ธ YOU โ–ช๏ธ
Be your true self.
It's amazing when you start living your life, on your terms, how many people get uncomfortable.
This discomfort is generally linked to their own inability to see a different way forward, lack of ambition or jealousy.
Don't live on others or society's terms/norms if you don't want to, it doesn't suit everyone and you want to thrive not survive.
