media frustration!!

everywhere I look people are being rewarded and praised for losing weight and dieting, people are talking about all the new diets and how much weight they're losing, and honestly its hard. Its hard to sit here knowing im gaining weight while everyone around me seems to be losing it, and i know its what i need to do, its just this time of year is horrible for a recovering eating disordered patient. all the tv programmes, magazine articles, leaflets - they're everywhere i turn.. 'lose a stone in a month' 'get rid of that fat!' and bla bla bla, i guess its all just mounting up around me and im like aaaaaaggghhhhh get away from me! even in the staff room at work while im sitting eating my lunch of cheese sandwich and chocolate, all i can hear is 'yeah im doing weight watchers and iv lost so much weight already' 'look at this salad its only got 50 calories like omg!' i feel like screaming, HAVE SOME FUCKING CONSIDERATION FOR OTHERS!!!! *and breaaaatheeee*
rant over, sorry im just finding it difficult but i needed to get it out!!


  1. I am so sorry this is so hard for you!
    But I am so so glad I could cry that you're in recovery mode
    There are so many girls who need to be in it!

    Your an inspiration
    Keep strong honey.
    Thoae adverts are for the average and you an extra ordinary.

    Good luck with recovery.
    If you ever need support let me know.

  2. I know it's hard my love but we have to face up to the fact that there are a growing number of people in society who DO need to loose weight - just NOT those with eating disorders.

    You and I are underweight so we must gain. Those who are overweight must loose.
