Surviving Anorexia
take care of your needs

Eat when you’re hungry.
Drink when you’re thirsty.
Sleep when you’re tired.
Seek solitude when you need to be alone.

Take a break when you feel tension in your body.
Have lunch with a loved one when you need to talk.
Watch a funny film when you need to laugh.

Cry when you’re upset.
Ask for a hug when you need one.

The only time you should ever look over your shoulder is to see how far you have come

Hi, I am a recovery anorexic since Jan this year. For 17 days i have been following a meal plan and exercise plan to tone my stomach after weight gain. Can you tell me how long it will take to tone my stomach? I know 17 days isn't long but i was hoping for maybe a month i would see a big change in my body

I get frustrated so at the belief that recovery is going to be quick. It’s not. It took a long time to break down the body. It’s going to take a long time to build your body back up. No a month is not going to give you a big change. Not even several months. Maybe this isn’t even a real questions and just a phoney one. Hard to tell when they re anons.

But people who suffer from mental illness are not weak - we are strong, and we always get back up when we fall
