A Woodsrunner's Diary
Labels: after anorexiapregnant. Deaing with pregnancy weight gain after an eating disorder. Weight gain is inevitable and necessary in a heathy pregnancy, unless you are overweight prior to pregnancy.
The following diagrams show the amounts of weight the average healthy pregnant woman gains and also what that weight gain constitutes.
Some days, I feel a little self conscious about being bigger however my babies health is the most important thing to me so I just keep reminding myself that it is necessary to keep my baby healthy and that helps me to deal with it ok. V ery few of my old clothes fit me so I have had to buy some new clothes in either bigger sizes or maternity wear and in order to stop myself getting upset when my old clothes no longer fit, I have stopped trying them on.
I also keep reminding myself that it is temporary and that even if I am larger than I am comfortable with after I give birth, my weight will most likely stabilise back to my normal weight whilst I am breast feeding and returning to my normal healthy and active lifestyle.
And if I don't return to my pre-baby weight, I think I will be ok with that also as being a good mum to my baby is more important to me than achieving a certain weight. As my body continues to grow and my weight continues to go up, I hope that I can keep the same outlook and continue to deal with it as I currently am. At the moment, I never feel as though I am restricting what I eat or exercising to prevent weight gain, even if I do feel a little uncomfortable or anxious about my growing body.
If I ever do start to feel as though I am letting any thoughts or worries about my weight gain negatively impact on me or my baby, I will seek help right away as I refuse to let my eating disorder jeopardise the health of my unborn baby.

I know that I am long over due for an update on my life and how I am going post recovery, but I have been waiting until it was safe for me to share my exciting news with you all. I am currently 13 weeks and 4 days pregnant, which means my dream of becoming a mum is finally coming true. I found out I was pregnant on the 16th of August, two months ago now, after trying to conceive for 12 months.
I was starting to worry that I wasn't going to be able to fall pregnant naturally and knew that this could have had something to do with my eating disorder history, but thank goodness it all worked out for us. I had my 12 week scan last Friday and I thought I was only 11 weeks and 6 days pregnant but the baby was actually measuring a week ahead which was really exciting. Although it was too early to tell the gender of our baby, everything looked perfect and our bub is super active!
Labels: after anorexiahopemy recoverypregnant. Sunday, 24 March Pain is real, but so is hope. For years, I lived completely consumed by my illness and unable to make any recovery progress. If anyone had of asked me during this time if I wanted xxx wasani tz recover I would have said a huge YES, however I honestly didn't think it was possible for me to do what I needed to do in order to recover so I didn't really try.
At the time, I told people around me and even myself that I was trying to recover but looking back, I know I wasn't trying, not really. I was eating enough to keep myself out of hospital and alive however I was severely underweight and my starved mind was incapable of thinking rationally, which made trying to recover seem even more impossible.
The thought of doing the things I knew I needed to do in order to get better was so terrifying that I didn't think it was possible that I would ever get better. I had accepted that I was going to live the rest of my life consumed by my eating disorder. Anyone whose been where I have been knows just how impossible and difficult it feels and anyone who hasn't been there wont be able to even begin to understand.Sunday, 6 February Oh for goodness If you were going to say fast I ate again.
Why am I the worst person in the world, so weak and pathetic? First there was the ham sandwich, a few custard cream biscuits to follow. How is any of that acceptable?! On the plus side, I avoided a bag of Meerkat shaped jellies like the plague. Not for me. For them. Posted by A. M at 1 comment: Email This BlogThis!

Something tells me I will eat tomorrow too. If I do, there ain't a thing I can do about that. This is just a short message to announce yet another day of failure. Tomorrow will be brighter, I swear! Labels: anaanorexiabingebulimiamiasecret diary of an anorexicthinspirationthinspo.
Friday, 4 February Still ongoing It seems that I've lost the ability to do anything right in the world.
Tomorrow is seven weeks until the special event I need to lose all this weight for - I don't have a choice but to fast. I've got to lose as much weight as possible.In My Mind: Anorexia
Nobody makes me it. It's my decision, isn't it? If I don't want to eat, I don't have to. So why do I do it?! Because I'm weak, and pathetic, and quite frankly, bored. All pathetic excuses, I know, but it's the way it is. Tomorrow is a new day, the countdown for seven weeks. I have to do this, yes? My promise, which I am vowing with you as a witness, is to fast every day until the 27th March at least, in a bid to lose as much as I can.
Wish me luck, I'm going to need it.View all Submit Blog Do you want more traffic, leads, and sales? Submit your blog below if you want to grow your traffic and revenue. Submit Your Blog.

Here are some thinspiration tips: 1.
Keep a thinspiration book. Get a really nice journal or something and print pictures of skinny models, tips, quotes, or workouts, and glue it in there. Look through it whenever you want to binge. You can always download something from Prothinspo and keep it with you. Keep a stack of magazines weighing the same amount you want to lose.
When you lose weight remove some magazines from the stack. It will be thinspirational to see that pile slowly start to get smaller. Use fashion magazines so that they also can inspire you as you remove as you lose.Hello Again!
I'm having a wonderful day so far. I'm more then half way through my first day of fasting and I haven't experienced any hunger pains or cravings. I even managed to sneak in some exercise when I walked my dog. I had a horrible day yesterday - I ate salade, fruit crisps, toast and binged on pizza with dipping sauce - I'm certain that I ate more than a thousand-five-hundred calories. I tried to purge, but for some reason, my body refuses to throw up. Clearly, the only remaining option was to fast long enough to repair the damage and maybe even make a little progress on the scale.
I started fasting today at midnight and I plan to stop at midnight on Monday. If I am successful, it will be seventy-two hours worth of fasting, a full twenty-four hours longer than my current longest fast. I'm joined by a few of my beautiful Ana and Mia sisters from Twitter.
It helps so much to have people to talk do when I'm hungry or considering breaking my fast for a trivial bowl of cereal or rice cakes. I'm usually fairly strong for the first twenty-four hours, but I'm sure tomorrow will not be as easy.
I tend to get dizzy and feel somewhat lethargic after thirty hours, so I'll be taking it easy with exercise for the next few days. I'll check in with you tomorrow or when I need a distraction from the cravings. Hugs and Low-Calorie Kisses, Megan. Introductions Are Funny Things.
Hi Everyone. I want to start off with the basics. My name is Megan, I'm fourteen years old and this is my anonymous account dedicated to my eating disorder and related mental health issues Bipolar Disorder ll, anxiety, phobias, self-injuring I'm completely obsessed with being perfect.
It ranges from starving myself and planning various cosmetic surgeries, to typing and writing so that the words and puctuation line up a certain way. I cannot accept the possibility that I'll never be perfect, even if it's the truest statement in the world. I have to keep trying regardless.
I want everyone to know that although I do not promote eating disorders or mental illnesses, I am pro-Ana and pro-Mia. I would never purposely bring another girl into this hell, but I will support those that share it with me. You can find more information on this in my 'Disclaimer' page, which I suggest everyone reads.
If you have an issue with this, I suggest leaving my blog, I don't think you'll enjoy it.Thursday, 9 April Cutoe, cutlass, hangers and short swords in the 17thth centuries: As Pensive I lay, e'en from the dead of night. Until the sun his daily course began. Reflecting on the candle's wasting light. And moraliz'd the fate of mortal man. White and unsully'd was that cotton wick. When from the chandler first to me it came.
Behold how black! Such colour takes it from imparted flame. Such is the youth, of manners strict and pure. Till led by vice he quits his reason's guide. By flatt'ry drawn, he stoops to vice's lure. And from the paths of reason wanders wide. His passions melt, his manly vigour faints. Nor mourns he ought his former vigour gone. For foul society his former morals taints. And mother Douglas marks him for her own. The fool who sells is freedom for a smile. Or for a ribband barters peace of mind.
Like wasting wicks just glimmers for a while. Then dies in smoke, and leaves a stink behind. The many perils that ambition wait.
When soaring high, we still the lower fall. Elegy on a Tallow Candle - Unknown, Cotton candle. Since this appears in the sixteenth century, presumably made because it gave a better product than any of the alternatives, the eighteenth-century occurrence of the term 'cotton candle' in the Dictionary Archive is surprisingly late.

History of the Cotton Manufacture in Great Britain. Take 58 of tallow, 38 of mutton-suet, melt them in a copper caldron, with half a pound of hot water to each pound of grease. Throw the mixture into the caldron, and make the ingredients boil a quarter of an hour; then let the whole cool.
The next day the tallow will be found on the surface of the water, in a pure cake. Take it out and expose it to the action of the air, on canvass, for some days. It will become white, and almost as hard as wax. The dew is very favourable to its bleaching; make your wicks of fine and even cotton, give them a coat of melted wax; then cast your mould candles. They will have much the appearance of wax, and one, six to the pound, will burn 14 hours, and never run.Her last post was in September ofwhich concerns me to no end.
Why did she stop posting? Is she still alive? Rule 3: the total number of meals per day should be 6. Rule 4: you cannot eat or drink anything with calories during any of the intervals between meals. There are only 4 rules and so it is quite easy to follow if I could do it then so can ALL of you!
Otherwise, you are free to eat what you like only as long as you keep within the rules. The word "eat" in the above rules also covers beverages - and it's very important that calories from beverages are counted as part of that particular meal.
Although it seems to involve a lot of eating, basically you'd be falling within a daily caloric intake of between and You'd be having calories per day if you have 6 meals of 50 calories each, and if you do the maximum and have 6 meals of calories each you'd be having calories per day which is still quite low! The most important thing about this plan is the time schedule. Here is how I do it: Normally I don't have any appetite early in the morning, but the hunger pangs start biting mid-morning.
So I take my first meal at AM. Then I must follow the 2-hourly pattern by the clock. You can make the 2 hour intervals as you like, at quarter past something, or at half past something For the plan to work it is vital that you DO eat at the planned times.
Strictly never skip a meal, even if you're not hungry at all. This shouldn't be hard because you can easily take your 50 cals by having a glass of milk, juice or sucking on a couple of toffees. Basically anything at your whim provided it is between 50 and calories. Do opt for healthy foods though!
