I have written two articles on this topic lately. I wrote about my trigger foods and food rules and the eating disorder recovery challenge I want to take. I have decides to write something positive because even though I still struggle, I’ve made a lot of progress as well.
1.) I don’t measure my oatmeal anymore – I used to weight my oatmeal and get an exact amount of grams every time. We don’t do that here anymore. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
2.) I manage to eat ice cream most of the time without feeling anxious
3.) I eat a normal amount of calories per day – this is probably the greatest one honestly
4.) I eat “all” foods – Except the trigger foods I am working on but I eat mostly everything. There was a point where I excluded like 10 foods from my diet because I thought they were bad.
5.) I eat chocolate flavoured yoghurt – I would not eat any chocolate flavoured yoghurts before because I claimed them to be unhealthy because of chocolate but now I only eat chocolate flavoured ones.
I can’t really think of any other points to add. But I am proud of myself. I hope to make even more progress and conquer my fears regarding food. It is really a strange concept because in a way I am recovered because I do eat “normally” I guess but I am still triggered by some things and I don’t think that is good. However I believe I can do this, I am going to do this. I really really want to.
