#tbt to last years #NEDA walk! Just in time for a new announcement! So 3/11 is this years date for the National Eating Disorder Association walk in Orlando, I have a code for you guys to walk for free with me if you are interested. Eating Disorders are the leading cause of death in mental illness related deaths. Which means it surpasses suicide! Come and walk with me (and Aly) to show your love and support for those suffering through/with this! #neda #aeriereal #aeo #aeowallofawesome #weallcan

What's up world, it's Thursday and that calls for a #tbt (also next week is eating disorder awareness week, so I'm a lil early to the partay). Anywho. Check this out. If I had a chance to go back in time and tell my younger self something, it would NO DOUBT be WEIGHT. DOES. NOT. DEFINE. YOU. I was slowly dying people. I almost had heart failure. My perception of food, exercise and my own body was skewed beyond fucking belief. I was trapped by my own mind, and I felt like I would never get out Here I am. A few years later. Living and LOVING life. I went from having the tits of a 8 year old boy to a 11 year old one 😂😂 #progressnotperfection my dudes 😂🤘🏻 I still struggle. It's a battle that will never go away, but the only difference now is that I TOOK CONTROL. I have an eating disorder, but I am not defined or confined by it anymore. One of my legs now might honestly be the size of both of my legs combined on the left. Does that bother me? I'm gonna be honest and say some days it does. But I overpower those thoughts with rational ones. Being 80 pounds and running 15+ miles a day plus practices for school sports isn't a sustainable life. I am learning to love this new me day by day. I'm stronger because of my struggles. If you are struggling, I want you to know that I am here. I UNDERSTAND the pain. The inner turmoil. And every shit aspect of an eating disorder. Don't hesitate to reach out to me. You aren't alone. Recovery is possible. #NEDA #recovery #YouAreMoreThanANumber #EatingDisorderAwareness

I love this because @carmelle.gee brought up an important point I'd love to elaborate on in my words: while some may see inspiration in the before and after photos of eating disorder recovery, it is so important to also see that we are allowed to be free from that. You are not your illness. You are not defined by how sick you looked physically. What matters is that we show eating disorders are SO MUCH MORE than the "before" photos. Because they are real mental illnesses and the photos don't do a justice for anyone about how much mental anguish one goes through when they are struggling. Not to mention, the "after" compared to the "before" may not tell the whole truth. We may not be "recovered" yet. We may still be hurting - maybe even worse. Weight restored does not always equal recovered. When people see the photos, they assume that we are all better now. And that can be invalidating and enable stigma around real struggles we face in recovery. #BoycottTheBefore

This is important. Thank you for sharing, Kelly 💜 #Repost @keepsakes_of_kelly ・・・ I am totally guilty of posting before and after pictures. I thought it was helping my recovery to "see how far I've come," but after some reflection I can see it was only signified my past. Or I thought it did, but it did not portray the reality of my pain and suffering. This girl here, she represents the woman I strive to be every single day. She laughs, she cries, she feels every feel, she advocates, she helps, she takes risks, she loves, she believes, she is proud to be the woman she turned out to be. I am not my weight, or my diagnosis. I am not the number of treatment and hospital stays. Now, I can confidently say that I will never be a statistic, nor do I want to be. I always tried to convince myself that once I was at a healthy weight, I was recovered. Now I can say, the most work came after that- accepting the person that was underneath, an imperfect soul who was lost and scared. Once I accepted the uncomfortable emotions is when I started to heal. Recovering meant finding my worth, learning to respect myself and down the road love myself. Some days are tough, but I know my fight is becoming less and I value myself enough to know that I never want to "toy" down that road ever again. #boycottthebefore #edrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #selfcare #nedaweek #nationaleatingdisorderawarenessmonth

Just because someone doesn't look extremely skinny. Doesn't mean he or she doesn't have an EATING DISORDER. People tends to underestimate how much self-hatred it takes to force oneself to throw up. Yet, EATING DISORDER has the the highest mortality rate of any mental disorders. EATING DISORDERS don't discriminate. They affect people of all ages, gender, and demographic. So let's raise awareness to put an end to EATING DISORDERS by celebrating NEDA week and join the walk on March 4. #selflove #loveyourself #loveyourselffirst #comfortableinmyskin #embrace #curves #love #acceptance #support #instagood #fighton #neda #nojudgement #loveyourbody #embraceselflove #stretchmarks #cellulite #noneedthighgap #realbody

All right Instagram. Let's talk about a sensitive subject. It's not something that I like to bring up a lot, in fact it's not something I ever bring up on any social media platform or with many people in general. Let's talk about eating disorders. I have lived with and eating disorder for 11 1/2 years. Whether it be anorexia, bulimia, binge eating, you name it I've dealt with it. It's not something I like to talk about and it's not something I share with many people. Only a few of my closest friends and family know, but my god is it been a struggle over the past 11 years. Sometimes it lays in dormant corners of my mind, others it comes back with a raging fire. It can be my best friend and my worst enemy at the same time. It's a double edge sword whispering false promises in my ear that it can never keep. Sometimes I fight back and sometimes I succumb to it's lies. I've watched myself through the past 11 years over and over again cycle through periods of self-destruction. There of been times in my life where I was so lonely that I thought Ana and Mia were the only friends I had in this world. I was so gullible that I believed any lies that they whispered in my ear and believed that anything and everything that they told me it could come true. I believe what they said when they told me if I just followed their rules my life could be perfect, that I could have everything that I could ever want. I could be pretty, popular, happy, they were all lies. there's nothing pretty about an eating disorder. There's nothing pretty about obsessing about food. There's nothing pretty about seeing food not as food, but as numbers. There's nothing pretty about dreaming about binging about eating one single slice of pizza. There's nothing pretty about having anxiety about going out to eat with friends or family. There's nothing pretty about being dizzy all the time. There's nothing pretty about your hair falling out or your skin turning gray. There's nothing beautiful about this. Most Ed's start because you want to have control. Ironically enough though, as you feel you're gaining control you're actually loosing control. #ed #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorter #neda #food
