Measure UP:

Page

Nearly thirty-five years ago when Anorexia whispered to me, I didn’t have access to the internet to share the starvation secrets being shared today but I can tell you that the whispers were the exactly same.  “Just a few pounds more, then it’ll be perfect.”

I was never sure what would be perfect or how a few more pounds would actually get me there but I bought the idea. Until I couldn’t choose anymore. I couldn’t choose to eat or not eat any longer. I had no capacity for food. My body thought a few kernels of corn and a grape was a meal.

“Weighing In” is a place not to compare starvation techniques but to find a place to trade them in. Anorexia works by rules. It works in secret. It works by hatred, self hatred. Silence won’t change any of those things but a conversation might.

A conversation started my journey to living healthy! Hearing myself have to defend the rules that Anorexia set up and I followed made me realize what those rules were costing me. I had people that listened. Those listeners helped me live!

If you  brave enough to believe that there may be abundant life AFTER Anorexia, start talking.

I see lots of places online to help you keep starving, the “how to” places of Thinspo and others but I don’t see a place to change it. If you started “trying” to starve and find now you can’t stop, I think we can help. If you want to live without Anorexia, I think this is a good place to start.

Now the disclaimer: This is a blog. While I live healthy now and I know this monster, Anorexia, intimately, I am not a medical Doctor, any conversation here isn’t designed or intended to replace medical attention, see a doctor concerning all your symptoms! Just keep talking to us or someone healthy in addition to your doctor until you get free!

Talk to us! We ARE listening!
