I decided to have potato chips at 10:30 at night because they are good for my health-
-my mental, physical, spiritual well being. I probably have chips once a year. But who cares.
I am the only person that can decide what foods are good for health.
Everyone else’s guidelines are merely suggestions.
PS: I got rid of my scale that I was both my highest and lowest weights on. I lived and almost died by that scale for four years.
My mom said we needed to have a bonfire for that thing. But that’d be another hour I don’t want to waste on it :-)
I haven’t been on my blog much at all the last few weeks. I have felt more alive the past few months than I remember in years. I ran a half marathon! I’m trying new things and meeting new people. It’s wonderful.
It’s a beautiful feeling when you put your eating disorder in the past. I thought I would always carry it with me for the rest of my life. And I will, but in a different way than I ever imagined. I no longer desire to be thinner,sicker than before. So I carry those memories as something that used to be a part of my life- the same way that old friends and sports and memories were.
When you can look at something in your past- and accept it, learn from it, move on- that’s when you know you can truly live again.
