I also have a negative body image. It's because I really can't see my size/shape. (In my mind I don't look like I weigh what my ticker says. It's the whole distored body image thing.)

Have the frozen yogurt!!!

Here's the link to a recovery ED forum:

Thank you everybody. I really enjoyed the second quote in particular. I feel guilty a lot about always posting negative comments on spark, but I think it is because I am always freaking out because I have a negative body image. Hec, I am debating if I can have frozen yogurt because I had one cupcake for dessert a couple of nights . Ah well. Mabye one day I can look in the mirror. Thanks again everybody, I will try my very best.

It is easy to find all the things about our body that we don't like but with a little effort and focus you can start appreciating, accepting and yes, even loving your body. Here is an article that can get your started

I completely understand. I used to have anorexia/bulimia for 3 years before I decided to get help, and I'm so glad I did. I often wish that I had the willpower now like I did back then, but to use it in different ways. It's hard to shake the mindset of an eating disorder...I haven't purged in over 2 years, but I still get the urge to sometimes.

I really enjoy the quotes Ailebbelia posted.

Two quotes:

Leave all your love and your longing behind--You can't carry it with you if you want to survive -F. Welsh


“This is the weird aftermath, when it is not exactly over, and yet you have given it up. You go back and forth in your head, often, about giving it up. It’s hard to understand, when you are sitting there in your chair, having breakfast or whatever, that giving it up is stronger than holding on, that “letting yourself go” could mean you have succeeded rather than failed...'Marya Hornbacher

I was anorexic for about 6 years and belonged to some sites too. I am never going back but, i'm also never going to forget.

I am looking at pro-ana sites again. Used to be one. Don't get me wrong, I dont want to go back, I just wish I had the same control as I did back then. Wish I was skinny and pretty too but your not going to see that happen. Don't have to reply. Just here.
