I’m rather new to PI… I’m really struggling right now with an eating disorder. I have for a long time and I’m trying to hide it from everybody and it’s really hard. I’m trying to learn new habits and get better but finding it really difficult. Anybody have nice advice? Or encouragement? Sometimes it feels like two steps forward and three steps back. Needing some help.

Hey girl! You sound like you may really need help! I don’t feel like there is much that I can do to help you. Please post this on the Random Thoughts and Questions. R&Q gets a lot more attention than this thread, it is more likely to get noticed. I will say a prayer for you. 🙂

Hi. I’m sorry to hear you’re going through that. I’ve dealt with eating issues in the past and I know it’s not easy. I wish I had life changing advice to give but there’s only one person who can make it better and that’s God. If you give it all up to Him things will change. I know that’s easier said than done but baby steps are good. So for right now make sure to surround yourself with happy, positive people that support you. With love all around you it will be easier to love yourself. hope this even helped just a little. You’ll be in my thoughts.

Hi! I can understand what you are going through, as I struggled with an eating disorder as well. I am so sorry to hear that you are going through this. I know its really hard. I think the best thing to do is to find someone supportive to talk to about it and keep you accountable. For me it was my mom. It was really hard to tell her, but after I felt like a weight had been lifted of my shoulders and it was so comforting. When you have people around you who care and love you, you will feel so much better. Baby steps are good and celebrate the little successes!
One really good blogger (who is also a Christian) is “The Real Life RD”. It has a lot of really good information about living healthy, happy lives and awesome posts. I was able to talk with Robyn (the writer) and she is just amazing! It really helped me get through my struggles.
And finally just pray. Talk to God and tell him how you are feeling. Ask him for help and guidence. One thing I like to do that I find is really really helpful is pray before I eat to remind myself that God has given me this food to nourish and heal my body. A positive mindset can change everything!
Also, remember that you are not alone in this! I know how it feels and you can get through this! I believe in you!
I hope this helps a little, and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers!

Hey
I know this post is old and you might be better, but I know what you’re going through. It’s really hard to have the thoughts going through your head saying that you know you’re pretty but you want to be beautiful. It’s hard to enjoy the feeling of being hungry and feel defeated when full. It’s hard to want to stop but without gaining any weight and still actually just have things stay the same. It’s hard feeling like there is no one to turn to because they’ll judge or try to “fix” you or just not understand.
My heart is heavy to know you struggle with this. I hope things have become better for you.
-Turn to God, he listens always.
-Listen to encouraging music. It doesn’t even have to be christian music. —Whatever music makes you feel uplifted
-Exercise moderately. It’ll make you feel that you are “progressing” and it won’t feel as bad to eat
-Sleep. Time to get away from emotions and feelings
– Find encouraging verses and tape them up everywhere. Memorize them
– Memorize or repeat important and encouraging sayings to yourself everyday. “I am beautiful. I am worthy. I am perfect in God’s image. God made me just the way he wants me to look. He makes no mistakes.”
– Go through a devotional book with a friend or close parent or mentor about positive body image. “Perfectly Unique” By Annie F. Downs
– If someone finds out that you don’t want them to know, remember it’s not the end of the world
Maybe everything is fine for you and you don’t need any of this or maybe you can’t relate to what I’m writing about at all I don’t know. I guess it’s just helpful to give someone advice that you need to hear as well.
I will be praying for you.
You are beautiful.
