Thank you all so much for the great feedback on my first Anorexic to Fit Series post. Your support is so amazing and I really do appreciate it a lot.
Ever since I started my blog, I’ve been getting so many comments and e-mails with questions about my past relationship with food and on the ED I had. Today I thought I would take the most asked questions and put them into a post, this is going to be part two of my Anorexic to Fit series.
*If ED related posts trigger you or make you uncomfortable, then I have many other blog posts you can read that don’t have anything to do with this topic. :)
How many calories did you eat during your ED? I ate about 300-400 calories and they all came from fruit, veggies, egg whites and nuts. Carbs (bread and oatmeal, for example) where a big no-no for me.
(Recent Snack: A Chocolate Dipped Coconut Luna bar. Pure bliss!)
Did you exercise during your ED? Yes, I was so obsessed with cardio and spent 30-70 min. a day working out. I really had to push myself through them because I wasn’t fueling my body properly and was so weak.
(Recent Lunch: Quinoa, peas and a hardboiled egg.)
Did anorexia harm your body for good? Sadly, it did. It messed with my body so much but I’m probably going to do a whole separate post on that topic.
Is talking about your past relationship with food hard for you? At first it was, but now I’m perfectly fine talking about anything ED related.. it did take time for me to get comfortable talking about it though.
(Recent Snack: My first KIND bar! It was delish!)
What made you want to get fit and healthy again? Deep down I knew that I was harming my body and desperately wanted to change my ways. Somehow, every time I tried I failed. I almost gave up but then I saw a few pictures of myself and realized how sick and malnourished I looked. I guess you could say I scared myself into recovery.
Right now, I’m working on a page with my whole ED and recovery story. I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s up. :)
