Все мы хотим выглядеть стройнее и красивее, поправить здоровье и по возможности меньше хворать. Многим для получения результатов возможно мешает лишний вес, у кого-то излишка веса много. Пришло время понять и подумать о вашем здоровье, заняться собой! Причин излишка массы может быть много это неактивный образ жизни, сидячая работа, изобилье слишком жирной и плохой пищи, да много всего. Ожирение стало большой проблемой людей крупных стран и нужно искать решение.

Правильное решение - необходимо понять и вести регулярный, здравый образ ведения жизни. Просто диетами можно исправить положение, если по окончании окончания похудения возратиться к предыдущему образу жизни, то возможно вес вернется, а можно даже сделать еще даже хуже. Необходимо начать худеть, понять все принципы здорового образа жизни, уяснить что и какая пища нормальная, а какая наоборот, разобраться в процессах, происходящих внутри вашего организма. Если имеется избыточный вес или жир, вам нужно найти правильную методику, добиться правильных для вас значений веса и в дальнейшем держать нужный вес, что порой бывает труднее, чем его сбросить. Хорошо подобранная, подходящая для вас, методика похудения поможет сохранить вес, а также поможет избавиться от разных болезней.

Hey everyone,

I’m doing an article for my uni final major project on people with negative self body image issues (e.g. eating disorders, BDD) and need some people to talk to about their experiences. I know it’s a very personal topic, but if anyone thinks they can help me out I will very much appreciate this.

help!!! [March 10th, 2008]

jen_a
[ mood | lonely ]

Hey there.

Ok. So. I'm trying really hard to get healthy and happy again but I'm still in the early stages of it and I need help. I don't have any friends who have been through it so can't get any advice with perspective.
All I get is ''your not fat. your just an attention seeker. Stop being stupid. Etc etc etc''

So how have you guys dealt with the small but big things?

I still have a huge aversion to mirrors or any reflective surface. I can't look at myself without panicking and ripping my appearance to shreds.

And the guilt after eating anything and feeling like I've just gained 5 kilos from a cup of soup.

And for my boyfriends sake.
He can't touch the bits I'm sensitive about (like my belly) or even look at them without me getting awkward and hyper aware of my percieved flaws.

How do slash did you all handle and get over these? Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

And I pose we make this a huge thing. I think the community was here for help and support and I love reading your stories and knowing that I'm not the only one who feels and thinks the way I do and who struggles when everyone else seems to have it easy.

So everyone, if you have questions or thoughts or find yourself slipping (like I constantly do) scream for help and get comments from other people that help you get back onto your proverbial feet.

Thoughts? And help?

The Rice Cake Debate [January 10th, 2008]
freespirit729
Rice cakes have long been known as the "dieter's friend" and, in western society, have been used as substitutes for sweet treats in the never ending battle against the bulge.  Today the variety seems endless: caramel, chocolate, cheddar, cinnamon.. the list expands.  But really, what do you get out of a rice cake?  Sometimes I eat rice cakes because i really enjoy them with peanut butter and apples.. or I just want a light something to end my meal.. a really light something.  However, if you are hoping one rice cake will satisfy your cookie craving you may as well save it.. you'll end up eating both.  A rice cake really has no nutritional value.  It is high in the GI index meaning that it doesnt keep you satisfied.  It spikes your blood sugars and just leaves you wanting more.  Maybe that's why "dieting" has long been known to be unsuccesful.  Dieters fill up with foods that literally do nothing for your grumbling stomach or for your body.  So next time you're hungry or are craving a sweet grab something real. If it's food you crave have something balanced with protein, whole grains and fats.  If chocolate is calling your name indulge in a piece of dark chocolate, which never fails to satisfy... to really indulge dip a strawberry or two in teh good stuff. Fruit is one of the best ways to attack a sweet craving. But never reach for one of those starchy unsatisfying cakes... unless of course you're a dork like me who really likes them with peanut butter. :-)

q_m_n_m_d
ok well let me introduce myself.i should have done that yesterday but i did not have time.sorry. (even though i doubt anyone is going to read this....:( sigh...) well my name is annemarie i am 16 years old since may and i live in trinidad (a small caribbean island just off the coast of venezuela) i started to become anorexic in the middle of 2001. to tell u the truth i had no idea whatsoever whta anorexia or bulimia or an eating disorder was until i was diagnosed with it and learned some more on the subject -_-. idid not know what i was doing or wh i was doing what i was.i went through my parents physically force feeding me-as in shoving food down my throat and forcing me to drink water. i ate very little until i was eventually admitted into hospital as no one knew what to do with me anymore (after i was taken to a few shrinks) there i was givne a choice- either i drink three 8ounce tins of ensure everyday (yeah right) or have a feeding tube inserted into me.i will always remember that day and those words.i could not do it and so my first feeding tube was inserted soon after i refused.i felt like i was being raped...i had no choice in what was happening to me. i did not know what to do or what was going on i just let it happen.from there i stayed in the hospital for two days. where mostly my parents fed me with ensure via the tube.the next day i was discharged because my parents were feeding me and it would be better if i was home or some sort like that. for the next few days i was fed three times with 8ounces of ensure and it was eventually increased to 4 times and then 5 times.i hated it but i did not know what to do. from there (i do not remember exactly) my parents seeked help from away (vancouver,canada) after i started to resist the feedings. there was a long very long waiting list and also very expensive. i had a VERY VERY VERY slim choice of entering but they decided to go nevertheless (my mom,dad,sister and myself) my aunt (my fathers sister) cousins,uncle and grandmother live there. i was not fed on the flight there at all because i made to much noise -resisting the feedings-it is approximately a day of flying. when we arrived i was fed and it continued. a meeting with a doctor from bc's children's hospital (i think) was set up. i did not speak my parents spoke and my dad cried in front of a doctor for the first time.i was not in the room.it was not a success and i tried to kill myself via suffocating after each feeding.it was a very stressful time for everyone.i also remember when my mom started sneaking a glucoe powder with the boost (similar to ensure but cheaper) and i hated it.i hid that and ovol-a medicine for gas- from them.i did not want anything else entering me. one day a doctor told my parents to stop force feeding me but to give me the choice (pouring out juice and leaving it on the table for me) i never once touched it.so i did not eat or drink anything at all (even water) for approximately 3 days. we rushed back home and the next day i became severely suicidal screaming 'somebody please kill me' i tried suffocating myself.i could not take it anymore. the sad part was that one of my primary school friends,her brother and parents who came to visit that day were there and had to witness everything.an ambulance would take to long so they drove me to the nearest hospital (one of my mom's good friends also came to help) i hardly remember anything but i was told that iwas admitted and given a high dose of anaesthetic ( i think-the thing that knocks u out) but that did not work so i was given another dose. i remeber blacking out a few minutes after reaching the hospital.it was as thogh i had died for several hours and then i woke up..-_-) mom told me that during that time several family friends were all over me praying and stuff :s.the doctor who was 'seeing abut me' said i would ot survive.i was only 53 pounda at 5 feet:s a tube was re-inserted (the first one was taken out while i was not being fed and refused everything while away-it also had to be changed several times after the first insertion) i was given respiridol (an anti-hallucigen) and zoloft (an anti depressant) i think. feedings continued and solid foods that were blended such as soup etc were also given to me.i remember the first time when i was over fed 16 ounces of liquid at one time after my stomach had shrunk.it was completely horrible from very little or no eating .i never felt more like dying in my life i was completely miserable and i grew more and more exhausted and miserable. two nurses were hired after spending 2 weeks in the hospital and i was discharged. they force fed me every day. one held my hands etc down and one fed me. after several days i grew weaker and could not resist as much as i would have liked anymore. i was taken to a new shrink whom increase dmy dose of zoloft. that afternoon all of a sudden i felt happy :S:S:S:S for no reason i could think of.it was like a revelation.i went to mom and told her i was ready to eat and so i had my first meal the next day or later that day.dad had been fishing that day.when i wawoke the next morning and dad was there to see me eat he started to cry-this is very rare to see as he never EVER shows his feelings. he even tried prayer at one time and he is agnostic and they also took me to a person who chanted around me :s they were so desperate to try anything..i could not stop thinking of how hard it would be to do this but i pulled through.it was realy weird because i allowed them to give me food that i actually ate.school started back ( i had to drop out of school-end of term exams when i was first admitted into hospital) bu things went downhil form there. i stopped eating my lunch, threw it away or just chewed it up and spit it back out. i started eating less.i went right back to where i had started.i was re admitted and another tube inserted.i spent some time there where a machine where the boost was 'dripped' into me was used. i was discharged after a month plus when i agreed to eat fod again. so i went back to schol and survived day to day.this would have been in 2003. from there i cannot remember exactly what happened but i think i managed to stay out of hospital form there but had to see a shrink.i managed and battled every day (which i still do). of recent i have been 'cheating'- skiping breakfast and not eating the required amts because i found i had put on too much weight after away (gained approximately 3 or 4 pounds) i wighed 86 pounds but now i weigh about 85.i'm REALLLLLLLLLLY FRICKING scared of putting on weight i have NEVER reached the 90 mark on the scale it has been a fear of mine since primary school and i am about 5 feet 1 inch. the desire to reach rock bottom again came from when i looked at some girls who are pro-ana on xanga.i love how it feels to be skinny and to see protruding bones like them and i think i need to reach bottom again to come to a real realisation of what i want to do with myself but i do not want to burden my family anymore/again it might kill my granny.so now im here surviving day to day.i ahrdly have energy and am tired ALL the time.i just want to sleep for the rest of my life. before this i just ate what was required 'cheating' only a little and managed to survive day by day. i am happy that no one 'monitors' me as much anymore because i can 'cheat'.i know this may sound stupid or weird but this is what happens and how i really feel. i don not know what to do with my life.i will eventually ahve to make the choice -survive like before, hospital (which means moree money that my parents would have to spend) or get better. but i need advice and support and counselling.it would not be easy.i menai want to do a lot of things in my life and i cannot do themif i remain this way..sigh. well that's it for now. any comments appreciated.


p.s. not in any way NOT looking for any fucking pity..just advice. thaks :)

I'm miserable, you guys. It's probably not true but now i've been going through recovery i feel as if i have another eating disorder not anorexia but the opposite, overeatting. I swear to god i eat so much during the day. I've gain so much weight it's ridiculous (at least in my eyes). Whenever i see food, i want to eat it or i do eat it. I'm obessed with sweets now which were/are tigger foods, i cant get enough, like today i had a giant chocolate chip cookie and pumpkin pie slice. i feel so quilty. I graze, when I look through the cabinets to find something to make a meal . It's like i don't know portions anymore because mine were so warped. And my family thinks that the portions i serve up now are still not normal. Plus it doesnt help my family arent exactly healthy eaters, cookies, cakes,always in the house. We eat pizza, fried chicken, chinese food, etc. ARGH. I'm so depressed over the weight gain. On top that my parents wont allow me to exercise.
How can i control my eatting?

having body issues this week. I've eaten so much junk in the past few days at least i think so i'm sure i'v gained a few. I feel so fat. Past day or so i've had ice cream, waffle cone and pizza... a Sample of what i ate as of today: bowl of cereal (no milk), green tea, an apple, some pizza crust from a slice of pizza, two homeade waffle cones, piece of cheese pizza, about a scoop of strawberry ice cream, bit of soft pretzel, an apple and wendy's frescata roasted turkey and basil pesto sandwich. I feel so gross and guilt of eating is setting in to the point i want to purge (which i have never done nor want to try) or just punish myself and not eat anything tomorrow. I'm working in the food services at my local zoo.. which probably bad for a anorexic or anyone with a eating disorder to be working with food. And yeah i can tell its taking a toll. we are allowed to eat whatever pizza, ice cream, or other foods that are served to us, waffle cones, ice cream too. We call it "dead" food. left overs basically. And it seems like whenever i round food i have to eat it, even if i don't like the food. Like i don't really like pizza but i ate it anyway. Or fast food but i got some tonight. I love my job to death but it Seems my will power has gone down and I HATE IT! What should i do? also i can't exercise.. so that makes things tough.

Posting a lot lately but i got something on my mind. For the people who were in clinics (or not).. were you substained from exercising?? How long before you got to exercise again?? I would like to get the weight you reached but thats a little personal lol. But yeah i'm having a hard time because i want to exercise.. i love exercising it makes me feel good.. but my mom isnt letting me. I'm 19 years old! I should be able to do it on my own decision. My mom was all like
"you are under my house and my rules, i don't want to see it, hear it, watch it or car is going to be taken away.. blah blah we paid money for you to get better i want a written note from your doctor..." blah blah
i just see all these people jogging going to gyms and i want too .. celebrities like lindsey lohan and nicole richie kiera knightly who are probably weighing less than me.. are toning muscle and exercising.. it just not fair!!!

it's me again.
So i've reached my goal weight .. the one i reached when i got out of the ED clinic but lost. How i feel about it.. heheh guess what? repulsed. I hate the way i feel and look right now. What's worse even though i can eat whatever i want, i still feel guilty for eating it. I just had some ice cream..not just like a scoop or whatever i had full blown basken and robin waffle cone with 2 scoops, one cookie dough and the other chocolate peanut butter. Ugh i just feel so FAT (i hate that word)I'm trying to lay off the junk food for a while but it hasnt been working.. Almost everynight i have ice cream or something of that sort. I can't control myself it seems... I just get these cravings! or i just end up eating something else if i refuse my body of junk food for that night. I feel like i'm overeating. My stomach pooches now,pants feel a bit tight stomache hangs over a bit of them. I just feel so diguisting!!!
What's even worse (!) is that i'm not motivated at all for exercising. After being substained from it for a year.. i'm not into it anymore. Too Lazy. It doesnt help with this self-image problem i'm having! Plus my parents will be like you can't exercise .. you have to gain weight. blah blah. ARRRRGH. I'm really thinking into this whole anorexia thing again but it's half of me the other half isnt willing to go to that stage again. I'm starting to eat healthy.. but i feel like i'm overeating. like i said before.
I'm frusterated, depressed and fat. Help me!! I need some support.

Hey y'all

My name is kristina. For the past year now, since senior year of High School i've been diagnosised with Anorexia. It all started by wanting to lose weight. I was 150lbs in the beginning on 2004 and 5ft 4in. Not good on a short girl. Wore pant sizes that were unflattering.. 10-14. Shirts i could barely fit in .. i was miserable and fet up. So since i realized how unhappy i was i started losing weight. I fully began to work on losing my fat in October.. started by eating more healthy, exericising.. but that got a little out of hand and i started eating less, exercising more.. my weight plummited.. i was 90 something pounds when my parents actually took care of my problem. I was put into an outpatient recovery program in may of 2005 (i graduated early from H.S .. so my transcript said.. but i never finished senior year. got to graduate with everyone though!)My time last for about 6 weeks .. middle of june. So now i'm in recovery.. it's been a year and I haven't reached my goal weight of 120lbs.. i'm very much less than i don't know i don't check the scale that often I'm proud of the progress i made... but i found that I still have anorexic tendencies and i REALLY miss being as skinny as i was. Size zero felt soo good! I have to say during that time of my life.. i was my happiest even though thats a bit ironic I kind of want to get back into that stage..sadly but i'm watched like hawk around here. I have my parents and my friends watching me whenever i eat. making sure i'm eating. I'm suppose to be gaining weight but how are you suppose to gain when i'm seriously afraid that i'll end up where i was in the beginning of 2004! I don't want to become fat. I do still count calories and watch the things i eat.. I swore off pizza ..i don't eat red meat only chicken and turkey. Lately i've been obessing over junk food.. like ice cream, chocolate, cookies and some candy and I hate it.. i see it and i want it but i'm getting fat again. I'm afraid i might be slipping... Pleases Help!!
Get my mind off this ana mode.

Today I resolved to myself that I was going to eat more.. so i started out like normal, went to the gym (was kind of dizzy), had lunch and tracked my cals... and noticed that I was very low.. so I ate another snack... and another, went to work, had dinner and ice cream/frozen yogurt.... and i just cacme home, had a kiddie scoop of ice cream/fro yo and some low fat ice cream from home..

and i feel very bloated because it's now 10:40 and I ate all of that ice cream and drank a diet snapple. which is ridiculous i know. and it's not even that i feel guilty.. just bloated.. maybe a little guilty for coming home and eating more.. but i know i need the calcium AND the cals. either way i've decided to pay my nutritionist a visit.

and wow. oh the energy boost. oh the personality. oh the confidence!
