Health & Support Fear food challenge Aug 25 2011
18:50 (UTC)

I have conquered pretty much all my fear foods (which was basically everything besides veggies), but I do still have a few that always give me anxiety and I always avoid.

- Cake/baked goods at parties that I don't know the calorie counts

- Restaurant meals that don't have the calorie counts online

- French fries

- Full fat yogurt and coffee drinks (trying to work on this one!)

- Mac and cheese (which I LOVEE!)

But I have to say, I just looked at your photos, I think you have a skewed vision because you did look WAYY too thin in those bikini pictures at a low BMI. You look absolutely AMAZING now, wow, what a fabulous figure :)!

I FEEL THE SAME WAY! I never took pictures of myself at my absolute lowest, but I have a few in my album from when I was recovering and gaining. I feel like even though I got down to the same BMIs as others, it didn't look as "bad" on me. I never looked very skeletal, I just looked really tiny. I was thinking I must have a very petite bone structure too.

But honestly, who cares if you don't think you looked "as bad" because there will always be someone who weighed less or more at their lowest, and that doesn't matter. We are all in this, fighting the same thoughts, we all deserve recovery no matter how "bad" it got.

Those both used to be my absolute favorite things to order at restaurants when I was a kid. Really tough, but I'd have to go with....chicken nuggets (with hot sauce;)

For breakfast;

(savory) an egg omelet stuffed with caramelized onions, green peppers, mushrooms, spinach, and goat cheese. With a slice of toast and butter on the side?


(sweet) waffle topped with maple syrup, yogurt with sliced banana on the side?
