Eating disorder/body dismorphia help/adviceWatch
My best advice, if your trying to maintain a healthy body weight or lose weight to become healthier (not thinner, healthier) then you need to put the work in to eat healthier foods and exercise for at least 30mins a day.
It’s better to be healthy than thin.
Don’t starve or restrict yourself hun, that just leads to discontent.
Try to reshape how you view it, instead of trying to ‘lose weight’, try to ‘be a better you, a healthier you.’ Then eating carrots instead of crisps feels like an achievement. I know it sound like a weirdo thing but it’s true.
Find exercises that keep you entertained. I chose sword fighting, because I wanted to be a warrior... and can live in make believe.
It doesn’t have to be hard or boring. It’s not about looking or becoming something else, it’s about having fun with what you have got and who you are.
Your more than your appearance, you gotta remember that.
I know that dark feeling, I feel it lurking on the shadows of my mind when I’m alone, screaming and taunting in its vicious way.
I have no cure for that, just kick the b*stard back when its voice gets too loud.
