National Eating Disorder Awareness week.

This is SO NOT SEXY! Nor is it healthy.
February 22-28 is National Eating Disorder Awareness week.

I used to be bulimic. After every meal, I would force myself to throw up. I was in high school back then. Everyone kept telling me how pretty I was and if I would only lose weight, I'd be perfect. It got to me. I got tired of hearing how pretty but fat I was.

Now, 10 years later, I am still pretty and fat. I don't care so much anymore. I'm glad I was able to get out of my bout of bulimia without ever being outed by anyone.

I know not everyone is as lucky. If you know someone who may have an eating disorder, reach out. They need you.

  1. First of all, I don't think you're fat. You look great.

    I'm glad you won over bulimia.

  2. Stupid as it sounds... when my cousin got anorexia I wished it had been me and not her. She was perfect to begin with and I have always had a few extra pounds to carry. We were 15 years old back then, it didn't take me long to understand the severity of it all and to be happy it wasn't me. It's been over 20 years and she's still struggling with it.

  3. Looks gross. Hopefully my girls won't have that problem.
