Non capisco perché oggi, dopo qualche ora dal pranzo, mi si sia nuovamente tappato l'orecchio come quando il mio corpo era totalmente senza energia. Questi giorni i miei genitori mi hanno fatto mangiare il mondo e anche tutti i satelliti se vogliamo; ok, abbiamo camminato almeno 10 km al giorno, ma era una cosa che già facevo quando mangiavo a malapena... Comunque, cena con:
~ Una fracca di zucca al forno 🎃
~ Affettato vegano di Quorn
~ Una fettina sottile di Irish brown bread 🍞
~ Una banana 🍌 con un cucchiaio di yogurt Skyr alla vaniglia
Buona serata ragazze ❤️
Our society values thin to the point of brainwashing us into thinking that when we get *there* to the promised land that everything will be solved, we will be happy, we will be loved, we will be seen, and we will no longer have to obsess.
THE PROMISED LAND. What is that promised land for you? What is the fantasy you have that drives the food rules, the fear around food, the beating your head against a wall? ***
When I was in college, progressing from disordered, restrictive eating to bingeing and eventually to purging, I KNEW that if I could just lose some weight FAST, I’d get that boyfriend, be popular, and feel soo good inside. Every morning brought new heights of hope, every night new depths of shame. I was in the trance and it took YEARS to consider that maybe the strategies I had devised for myself were not getting me any closer to where I wanted to be, either emotionally or physically. ***
That promise is a carrot on a stick that you will NEVER catch. You might find yourself feeling empowered on a “good” day or “good few months”, but the shame always comes. It’s the shame of not being able to hang on, of failure, that then results in bingeing then restricting then back to bingeing, or starting and restarting the 5th or 50th or 500th diet or “lifestyle change” of your life. ****
You don’t have to live like this. You don’t have to buy into the promises of happiness at a certain weight. You may have to find the courage to dig deeper, to walk into postponed pain, to ask yourself the tough questions, and find your inner rebel. ****
Diet culture promised you happiness, but it’s just a jailer taunting you with keys through the bars of your own prison. ***
You CAN break free.
Last year was very hard emotionally and I started to do some#bingeeating . Gained A LOT of weight. I am now struggling with a #eatingdisorder , trying to keep it under control. So I wanted to share what a difference of 10 pounds makes. I'm not focused on a number, more the apparence, but it's fun to see the progress. There is 2 weeks in between. I'm not going to the gym as much as I'd like to, but I'm being careful with food. Starting to be proud of my work :) a lot to go, but I'm off to a good start. Be kind to yourself. #fitness#fitnessmotivation#weightlosstransformation#weightloss
You know there’s something up when your googling “binge eating”.... I know I joke about my eating habits but it has been a problem of mine for many many years. I’ve always known I’m partial to a binge but I would always make a joke out of it. However it’s not really funny, I don’t actually find it funny. I feel sheer guilt straight after and utterly disgusting. What I’ve learnt from researching binge eating this evening is that I need to finally view it as an issue so that I can finally address it and get past it. You wouldn’t guess any of this from my insta profile because it’s something I do in private and I wouldn’t necessarily broadcast it as quite frankly it’s embarrassing 🤦🏻♀️ I’ve managed to kick 1 nasty habit (smoking) so hopefully I can apply some of the same techniques in trying to stop this 🤞🏼#honesty#bingeeating#bingeeatingdisorder#slimmingworld#weightlossjourney#mentalhealth
I’m sure we’ve all been there. I certainly have. 🌝 Scouring my kitchen at night, looking for anything remotely crispy, sweet and delicious.⠀
(More often than not, I won’t have anything generically delicious to hand so have to improvise. One of my better innovations has been spoonfuls of peanut butter dipped in honey. One of my worse has been questionably-old rice cakes doused in granulated sweetener.)⠀
I used to identify these late-night urges as ‘binges’. I’d beat myself up over it, vowing to stop. But when I took some time to reflect on why I often felt like this, I realised I was so motivated to ‘get fit’ that I was eating too little to support my lifestyle and training. I was actually just hungry 👅⠀
Once I started fuelling my food with more nutrient-dense food across the day, the uncontrollable urge to devour-all-the-crispy-sweet-and-delicious-things-in-my-kitchen at night was less frequent.⠀
I’ll still have days where I’m a bottomless pit, no matter how much food I eat. But now, I don’t label it. I don’t judge myself. I don’t punish myself. I just wake up the next day and move on.⠀
'Binge-eating’ in clinical terms is a very complex - and not to be taken lightly. As a form of disordered eating, it may require some professional help (advised!). But it’s important we don’t ‘bulk label’ all of our eating habits without any wider context.⠀
You don’t need to punish your body for wanting more energy to live your life ( = being hungry.) 💃⠀
You don't ever need to worry beautiful,
you don't ever need to panic.
That body? that happiness? that confidence?
you feel it inside, you've always felt it.
That means it's yours to receive,
it's yours to own.
You've just been blocking it,
You've been desperate,
oh so desperate.
And everything you've done up until now,
has been from that place.
You've tried in vain to drag it out,
with those diets and false hopes.
You've been desperate,
you've done that,
you've tried everything to be her, feel her, see her.
But you really haven't.
You haven't tried just taking a breath
to connect with her
to stop the worry and trust that she really is there
to tune in fully to HER and take daily action AS her
to heal the toxic attachment to food that keeps holding her back and sabotaging her existence.
You haven't done that
you haven't tried that.
Stop the worry beautiful
stop the panic!
If you feel it in your heart and soul,
she is there, i promise you,
it's who you were always meant to be.
Trust the journey
trust what is YOURS to receive
and stop holding her back by acting from that place of fear.
What would SHE do?
Tune in and ask,
tune in and heal,
and she will be here soon enough,
She IS after all,
YOU isn’t she??
She is the ultimate you -
the inner happiness and peace
the body that no longer holds onto that 'weight of the world'
the SEXY AS FUCK feeling inside!
that's the REAL you that you've always KNOWN was there,
So why are you worried?
Why were you EVER paniking beautiful?
Just give yourself the love you deserve right now,
and honour the journey as you bring her to life.
And one day,
you'll look back and wonder to yourself:
Why was I ever even worried in the first place??
In a world where we’re constantly told to change our body, befriending it, accepting it and being kind to it is a liberating act. You often can’t control your body but you can make peace with it and treat it as you would a loving friend #selfcare#health#wellness
This is my first January in YEARS where I’m NOT following some restrictive diet or meal plan. I get the allure - you think you’re in control (you’re not), you’re excited about the weight loss (but you’ll probably gain it all back), and you feel great about “getting back on the wagon.” If only that feeling lasted. Inevitably, I’d be “off the wagon” again at some point, tired of following the food rules, and feeling like a failure.
This year, I’m taking care of myself through nourishing my body, instead of restricting, and engaging in movement that’s enjoyable, not punishing. I don’t have that adrenaline rush that I used to get from weighing daily and watching the pounds drop (I could always lose weight fast...and gain it back faster...) but I have the peace and freedom that comes from treating yourself well, and taking care of your mind, body, and soul 💜

Let's pretend for a second that it's been "working"...is that how you want to live your life? Tracking, plotting, planning, measuring, scale tracking, in fear of ingredients, in fear of carbs, in fear of fat...
I know for me, even when I wasn't overeating and felt "on track" it was still pure torture. Food, diet, and body focus sucked the joy right out of my life. I mean I had many moments of happiness but I wasn't free, and bliss wasn't easily accesseble.
Feeling in your power with your food choices, or feeling good in your skin, does NOT have to come from control. . .
It can come from partnership, nourishment, honor...
Working WITH your brain, body, heart, and soul instead of against yourself 💖
When your body trusts you to feed it, it stops yelling at you for pizza and cake and starts gently nudging you towards food that makes you feel alive.
I know it isn’t the healthiest but Diet Coke helps me to avoid any other sugary soda.
The second picture shows my dinner: Japanese Curry Rice. Sometimes I add chicken, but today vegetables only. Mushrooms, onions and green beans. A great way to get enough vegetables in! 🌿

Day 20 di #dieta .
Sono stanca. Stanca di discussioni e urla, stanca di polemiche in casa e fuori casa, sono stanca, stanca, stanca...
Stasera ho mangiato tipo mezzo chilo di #verdure verdi in padella (bieta e spinaci), un #panino ai 5 cereali e come #dessert uno #yogurt greco con #mandorle#noci e #cannella . Non ho avuto modo di fotografarlo, anche perché nella confezione di plastica era proprio orrendo. Tutto sommato una #cena leggera, non avevo molta voglia di cucinare, né onestamente di mangiare... (E detto da me fa un po' strano)...
Oggi a pranzo, invece, due #cotolette veg e tanta, tanta #lattuga .
In compenso oggi ho allenato #spalle e #bicipiti , infatti ora ho la parte alta che domanda sciopero. Tutto sommato abbastanza soddisfatta ma non del tutto, mi devo ancora abituare alla pesantezza della nuova scheda, la cosa positiva è che questi allenamenti mi stancano talmente tanto che la sera arrivo esausta e dormo come un bambino.
Questo weekend, sabato o domenica, mangerò una bella pizza e suppongo anche dei dolcetti, ma mi sento come se potessi prolungare la dieta per ancora qualche settimana. Non so per quale motivo, forse perché ho tanti pensieri e il cibo sta perdendo priorità... meglio così. O forse no...
A ogni modo, mi concederò comunque uno sgarro perché, alla fine dei conti, so di meritarmelo.
⁉️What do you prefer soup or salad⁉️ share below 👇 .
Cooler 🌥 temps (60s) over the weekend so I was in the kitchen making one of my favorite soups 🍲 with my @Instantpotofficial, PEA SOUP. I love making soups as part of my meal prep because they are so satisfying and comforting during the winter months. Soup 🍲 also tends to control our appetite when we are trying to lose weight because of its high water content, and the same with salads. .
Did you know the appetite hormone GHRELIN increases in the evening time and the fullness hormone PEPTIDE YY decreases? This can help explain why we tend to overeat in the evening especially if we are stressed or prone to binge-eating.
. (Let me know if you want the recipe and I’ll post it for you)

Today really sucked. I have not in a very long time felt so sorry for myself. I felt so angry for having to deal with everything, like, why is this happening to me, why do I have to deal with this?
But then i came back to my senses: something is happening to all of us. There's no point in comparing and thinking how your struggles are the worst, because the experience is different to all of us.
But what the point is, is that you never know. You think someone is perfect, and you are all alone with your shit, and no one goes through the things you have to. It is a very human thing to hide every bad thing and show the polished side.
I've just begun to reveal stuff underneath it all to my friends, but there is still so much that i don't feel comfortable sharing (hence this profile). What a better place this would be if we were braver and showed some vulnerability.
But, until i manage to gather the courage to come out with all of my baggage, this is what i'll do. Reflect and wonder.
At ‘Ai Pono, we strive to provide an essential connection to one’s inner wisdom, or internal guidance system. We believe that this connection can provide women with a lifelong solution to specific struggles with eating, rather than a temporary fix.
We believe complete recovery is possible.
Yes, I’m a pregnant momma. 20 weeks and 4 days today.
But I had to make a decision. Am I going to make my babies my excuse? Or my reason?
I am 26 years old. My husband and I currently want 5 kids. I am going to be pregnant or nursing for 10-12 years!!! (I got pregnant with Holland November of 2015, nursing him still today, pregnant until June, planning to nurse her too! And we want our kids 2 ish years apart if we have things “our” way!) That’s a LONNNNNGGGGGG time.
So, I made a decision.
I HAVE to make my babies my reason.
Because if I make them my excuse, I will be miserable for the next 10-12 years.
I will hate the skin I’m in.
My marriage will feel the effects of that.
When momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.
Would I rather eat CRAP and blame it on pregnancy?? Um... DUH!!!!! Who doesn’t love a good excuse to binge?? 🤷🏻♀️🙋🏻♀️ (Recovering binger over here!) But I can’t binge.
Actually... I can,
but I AM CHOOSING not to.
Obesity runs in my family.
Depression runs in my family.
Diabetes and heart disease run in my family.
Strokes run in my family.
But I don’t want ANY of that.
I CHOOSE to eat healthy everyday.
I CHOOSE to exercise everyday.
Pregnant or not.
Nursing or not.
Busy mom life. Busy wife life. Working from home.
Not an excuse. “He that is good for making excuses is seldom good for anything else.” These are my reasons. ❤️ What are yours?
✨IT’S OK TO CHANGE THE CONVERSATION✨
A few days ago, my husband and I were out to eat with some of our family members. Somehow the talk got changed to “diet talk” ft. the infamous ‘Its-not-dieting-its-a-lifestyle-change’. Normally I kinda enjoy these conversations as an opportunity to share what I’ve learned through my own experience with Intuitive Eating, health at every size, and body acceptance. But to be completely honest, that day I was having a bad body image day. And my head was swarming with thoughts (‘maybe you should eat less’ ‘you should’ve gotten the salad like the other women and not the burger and fries’ ‘maybe you should do the whole meal planning thing again’) and instead of feeling empowered and ready to crush that diet culture talk, I started feeling anxious, wanting to run into the bathroom and cry, feelings I haven’t felt for a long time (Side note: yes, I still have struggles here and there!! And it’s ok!!) So instead I leaned over to my husband and quietly asked, “can we change the conversation?” BUT YA WANNA KNOW WHAT HAPPENED?! The other person who was participating in majority of the diet talk heard me and said “We weren’t talking to you, you don’t have to listen!” (In a sarcastic way.... but still). Yes, everyone’s “worst nightmare” when it comes to asking to change the conversation. But instead of choosing to feel dumb, I had to remind myself that I was standing up for ME. In a moment where I could’ve felt weak, I was actually being strong. The conversation changed, and the rest of dinner was more enjoyable. I want you to always remember it’s ok to chose to not use your energy to debate about diets. It’s ok to change the conversation. Only you know your limits, and if a conversation begins to push them way past what you feel that you can handle, please, do what you need to do for YOU.
Creemos que la palabra “descontrol” es la mejor definición. Consiste en comer descontroladamente gran cantidad de comida en un corto período de tiempo (hasta 2 horas). La ingesta es tal que puede rondar en 3000 a 4000 calorías por atracón. 👉 Criterios para Atracón Un atracón debe cumplir al menos 3 de estos puntos. ✔Comer mucho más rápido de lo normal ✔Comer hasta no poder más ✔Comer demasiada comida ✔Comer solo ✔Sentimiento de culpa o depresión después de comer mucho.

I know you may have always thought the opposite, and believed that dieting is the answer to binges, but actually dieting and bingeing go hand in hand.
If you find yourself bingeing, then try and trace back over the day or week before it happened to see how you were thinking about food.
❓Were you trying to control what you were eating?
❓Were you restricting your calories, carbs or fats?
❓Were you trying to cut out a food group in the name of health?
❓Are you planning on cutting out a food group so you're going all out before you start?
If we tell ourselves we can't have a certain food and restrict it from our diet, our bodies actually work against up start sending us crazy cravings for this food! Our will power can only last so long until we give in, and rather than just have a little, we have loads because we coming at it from an all or nothing perspective.
So, what's the answer?
Remembering that all food is available at all times.🙌🙌
Once we believe that we can eat what we want whatever we want, the need to binge goes away, because we no longer have to be all or nothing.
Just try it for a day, and see how it changes your outlook.
Dinner today is a Thai green style homemade curry with tofu and cauliflower rice. I’ve been feeling physically down today. Idk what is wrong with me right now. Do you ever get the strange feeling that your physical pain is just caused by mental pain and it’s so realistic that it’s tricking you? Haha maybe it’s just me. I’ve just got bad cramps and fatigue (and btw it’s nowhere near my time of the month!!) despite all this today has been alright. Been watching tv all day because I’m unproductive af 😶 trying not to feel tooooo shit about it but I constantly wish I was of some use to other people. It’s hard sometimes to not feel like a burden. Anyway this being said maybe it’s because I feel ill. My throat is all blocked up and I end up coughing loads which leads to my asthma flaring up 🙃. In terms of my old “friends” I literally only speak to them or see them when it’s someone’s bday haha they literally don’t give a fuckkkkk about me 😑 idc though I used to but I don’t now. They’re not even worth crying over if they can’t be bothered to see me. Well shot of them! all they’ve ever done is make me feel crap anyway! Better off without them😌 soz for all the rambling again today hope you’re all having a good one
UPDATE... this was so so yummy but I’ve coughed so much that I think I’ve cut or bruised my throat or something because every time I swallow it’s like the food is passing against an open wound😬😬😬 yeahhhh I don’t think this illness is just in my mind anymore 😅👋#edrecovery#ed#eatingdisorder#eatingdisorderrecovery#binge#bingeeating#bingeeatingrecovery#bingeeatingdisorder#bingeeatingdisorderrecovery#vegetarian#anorexia#anarecovery#anorexiarecovery#edfam#edfamily#edwarrior#recoverywin#bingefree#strongnotskinny#balancednotclean#edfighter#edsoldier#prorecovery#weightloss#tofu#curry#dinner#cauliflower#healthy#veggie
Die Kaffeebohnen mit Zartbitterschokolade umhüllt aus dem Samocca liebe ich einfach ❤
Und da ich mir die letzten Tage einfach zu wenig Zeit für mich selbst genommen habe, habe ich mir heute ein paar besorgt. Einfach weil es wichtig ist, sich ab und an eine kleine Belohnung und Auszeit zu gönnen. .
Heute morgen habe ich mich schon viel besser gefühlt. Habe Sport machen können, habe mich ausgeruht und stark gefühlt und war, als ich draußen unterwegs war, wach und ganz da. Gestern abend ging es mir kurz wieder schlechter. Ich weiß nicht warum aber mein Kopf macht im Moment aus jeder Mücke einen Elefanten, stellt sich immer gleich das schlimmste Szenario vor und bringt mich echt zum verzweifeln. Zum Beispiel hat meine Lehrerin die Klassensprecher mit den Konferenzvertretern verwechselt und mich nicht benachrichtigt. Ich war gleich sicher, dass ich von der Schule fliege und ich deswegen nicht kommen soll. Warum auch immer und wenn sich die Situationen dann aufklären fällt mir auch auf wie lächerlich diese Gedanken sind aber in der Situation kann ich einfach nicht anders als ihnen glauben zu schenken. Im Moment ist es einfach wahnsinnig schwierig im Hier und Jetzt zu bleiben und ich muss dringend schauen, wie ich mir Zeit für mich und zum entspannen schaffe. Damit so etwas wie die letzten Tage nicht wieder zur Routine wird. Nächste Woche melde ich mich übrigens im Fitnessstudio an. Ich habe mich entschieden 😊
I can't promise you this journey is easy. I can't promise this workout program is easy. I can't promise healthy eating is easy. I can't promise loving yourself is easy. NONE OF IT IS! ITS HARD! I'll tell you straight up. But y'all it's so much more WORTH IT than is is hard!!👐🏽👏🏽 day 9/80 BUTT DAY🍑 totally crushed it along with my team of 80 Day obessioners! 😁🙃
