slow mornings with coffee in one hand and a forkful of juicy blueberry pancakes in the other is the only reason i get out of bed in the weekend?☕️? anyone with me? i used to force myself to wake up early on the weekends so that i could follow a rigid eating schedule, have enough time to workout, and get a ton of schoolwork done. i was constantly forcing myself to go-go-go and never allowed myself a break. i was trying to maximize my productivity while barely eating. if i wasn’t exhausted at the end of the day, i told myself i hadn’t worked hard enough. i could go on and on about all the rules i set up for myself and the amount of rigidity in my life at the time, but all of that doesn’t matter anymore. what matters today is that i am finally free of that demonizing voice in my head, and i am finally LIVING✨ i no longer think about food 100% of the time, i can finally CONCENTRATE on things that are real priorities, and i TRUST my body’s signals. i’m not saying that i’ve achieved absolute perfection or anything, just that there is SO much more to life than living with an eating disorder. for all of you out there struggling with one, i promise you there is a light at the end of the tunnel. if you commit to recovery, life WILL get better. because everyone deserves to be their best selves?
