Healthier way of life/ eating disorder recovery

sunshine_rain3
Hi everybody. I had been looking around communities for a while, wanting to find a very active community commited to health ideas, tips, stories, and inspiration. I didnt find one, although there may be one out there.

I decided to create one in hopes of having a good active community, if you any of you all have any interest, i invite you to join me!
Hope to see you there.

Hi all,
I thought some of the members of this community might be interested in this:

A university outpatient treatment program and trial is currently being offered to people over 18 years of age with Anorexia Nervosa. It involves expert researchers and clinicians in the field of eating disorders from around Australia. The trial is being conducted in Sydney.

If you're interested in participating or for more information please contact:

Today, I'm fighting the urge to relapse AGAIN, Its not my best day. I guess I need some motivation. Sorry I haven't been around much. Its just, I've been through some stuff, the latest is noted down on my journal, In case anyone cares.

I know this sounds pathetic, but, does anyone have anything motivating for healthyness. I really need SOMETHING.

I learned today from my nutrition book
1g Fat = 9 calories
1g Carb = 4 calories
1g Protein = 4 calories

I just thought that was interesting.
I didn't know that XD.

Why you joined, what you're looking for: I joined because me and my family are looking for new ways to become healthier. We've tried a lot! Windsor Pilaties(w/e), new dieting, excercing machines, gym passes, etc. But I want to start fresh and clean!
Have any goals? I plan on losing 10 pounds by November 7. Its a contest between me and my mom. I want to do it the right way instead of trying anorexia (like ive done in the past when i was depressed.)
Anything you'd like to add: The party just begun!

A little about yourself: I’m so creative and wild and out-there… or as other people tell me. I am a model and a thespian and have red hair and freckles. I love to swim in my pool and work out with Windsor Pilates (in case you wanted to know, lol!) I can crack-up at ANYTHING and I’m laughable (meaning I laugh a lot.) I like people who are fun, comfortable and relaxed, energetic, and positive.

I checked out a nutrition book from the library.
it's actually about reading labels on foods and whatnot.
I think I will inform you constantly of random facts I find out.

For Example:
Today I found out that for meats and poultry to be considered lean they must have 10% or less fat content.
Unless it's ground beef.
Ground beef can have up to 22.5% fat content to be considered lean
I found this quite disturbing.

My final is on Wednesday!
hooray!

It's hard to stay on a diet/healthy plan
when your friend who is supposed to be on it with you
is very lenient.
so yesterday was okay.

It's the beginning time of my period
(or when I'm supposed to start)
and so I was craving sweets yesterday
I was still at ~1700 but it was still a let down because I ate a donut (plain no frosting) and some low-fat, sugar-free vanilla frozen yogurt.
but today was be better.

The other day I set a goal of drinking Eight 8 oz. glasses of water a day.
and I have been doing that =)
So that's really good. I'm proud of myself.

I'm also compiling a huge collection of vegetarian/vegan recipes that are low-fat/low-cal and very healthy.
I'm going to print them off and buy a binder to put them in.
I plan on cooking a lot of the time this fall.

Well I just added up my daily calories
and listed my food
(I have an actual food journal I write in every night)

I had a sweet tooth today
and I did my best to not binge
This is what I ate:

+Salad (w/ about 2 tbs cottage cheese instead of dressing and cheese)
+Pasta Primavera
|Fat-Free Banana Nut Muffin
-Cranberry Muffin
-Nachos w/ cheese
|Macaroni Salad (about 1/3 cup)
-Low-Fat Sugarfree Vanilla Ice Cream
About 1495
which isn't too bad
but above what I wanted.

And damn those jalapenos messed with me, haha.
What's the easiest way to get somebody to start eating more healthy?
I'm trying to get my Significant other to break his terrible eating habits:
Pizza, Fried Foods, Potato Wedges, Ice Cream, etc...

But he thinks I only worry about it because of my "weight issues"
But I really do feel people should eat more healthfully.
Do you think there is an efficient way to explain this to him?

I decided that weekends are bad to stretch.
Keep in mind, I did stretch
just not as elaborate as I do during the week.
damn wearing myself out XD

Taco Bell = unhealthy.
do not eat it, lol.
I decided that last night.

My stomach hurt so badly yesterday, but it's fine now!
So I'm assuming that it's something I ate.
*shakes fist*
I got an A on my quiz yesterday =)

Do any of you know the website
where you can put in the ingredients of a recipe
and it gives you the nutrition facts?
I know there is one somewhere
and I can't remember the URL.

How are you ladies doing? =)

Ugh
today was the worst day for being healthy
Lunch was fine.
but it just went downhill from there.

+Pasta Primavera(190)
+Smoothie (200)
-2 pieces Sbarros Pizza (huge...pieces)(920)
-Coldstone *Like It - sized* Apple Pie a la Coldstone (644)
-2 packages Low-Fat Ranch (80)
-21 oz. Cherry Coke(250)
~2284
I didn't eat much
but very unhealthyly

We went to the Fair
and it was hot and nasty
and Eteri owed Ben and I Coldstone
so we went.
ugh
and then Ben suggested Pizza for dinner
and so that's what we got.
it was just bad.

I still stretched
and I got a lot of exercise from running around today.

I finished my resume and mailed it to Nita Allgood.
So that's there now.

ugh.
I hate having worriful boyfriends.
He literally shoved chocolate in my mouth today.
because I've gone on this big health kick.

+Smoothie
+Yogurt(Boo Yoplait)
+Crispix
+Taco (soft, beans, salsa, onions, lettuce)
+Caesar salad
+Nutrigrain Bar
-Chocolate
-Granola bar (with chocolate)
~1200

but I'm not sure.

I don't like to be force fed.
and that's basically what he did.
bleh.
but it was a small piece of dove chocolate (1/5 of a bar)
and he wouldn't let me spit it out.

My stomach has been really bothering me lately.
I just started Depo-Provera 3 weeks ago
and it feels like cramps..
could my stomach aches be from that?

The Mikado was amazing.
I suggest that everyone sees it sometime ^_^;

I ate more today
but I felt really bad about eating spaghetti
twice in one day
but the cafeteria was like OUT of everything I wanted
IE: Fruit, milk for cereal, etc...

I'm currently working on a list of all the good, bad, and neutral things in my cafeteria.
so I know =)
I think I'll type it up
and you can let me know if you think something needs to be switched
because I've already had some people argue with me, lol

Today:
+Spaghetti (no sauce)
|Breadstick
+Fruit
+Spaghetti
+with vegan marinera
|Breadstick
+Carrots & Cucumbers w/ Vinegar
+Breakfast bar(Nutrigrain I think?)
Around ~ 1300
very rough estimation.

My legs really hurt today
a good hurt =)
Like something is actually happening.
because I haven't taken to elevator to my class all week ^_^;
(On the 3rd floor...including a ground floor, 4 flights!)
and I've been walking
everywhere
It feels great.

and also as a side-note.
I think I found a place for workstudy this fall =)
I'm excited
the ladies there seemed estatic to have somebody come in wanting a job
It's the campus Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender (GLBT) house, Alcohol-Drug abuse house, basically the place where people who have problems and need somebody to talk to or feel harrassment.
and they said they have a hard time getting people to not only work there
but to stay
and that's understandable, you know?
a lot of people would crack having to deal with people like that.

Not only do I know many GLBT, I lived with a drug dealer for like 4 years, and have dealt with people who have horribly abused drugs and alcohol.
I think it would be the perfect job for me
because I honestly don't judge people straight on
just because of what I've been through

That was just a little rant something, Chelsea if you want it behind a cut or removed, just let me know.
I just thought it was good news to share ^_^;

Today I ate quite healthfully!
but, of course, my problems showed.
I had a really low caloric intake today

+Smoothie (No Yogurt, real fruit)
+Crispix
+Shredded carrots w/Cucumbers and Vinegar
+Pita Bread w/ Hummus
|Caesar Salad
TOTALING ~ 525

I've still done my stretching
but I decided to start working out more
currently trying to find a way to rid of love handles, lmao
near impossible, non?
I walk a lot..
but I don't see anything different from walking.

Wednesdays = my long class days.
Not only do I have a 3 hour morning class from 9-Noon
I have an afternoon extra class from 3-5
so that's a lot of time spent in the classroom
and then I just get so tired
I want to veg, lol

Tomorrow I'm going to see if I can get workstudy for this fall
and buy Mikado tickets
and talk to RPS about extending my housing contract.
that's a lot of walking around campus, haha.

How are you ladies doing?

Hello.
After a nice lunch with a friend today, I decided that I am going to try to work out a lot more. I have a recumbent bike,rowing machine,treadmill and eliptical, so it should be good. Today I did about 1.25 miles on the treadmill..

I've decided to drink more water than pop. it's going to be hard.
I'd like to lose 3 inches off my waist.
Right now its about a 27, according to my jeans.
All in a healthy way.
So my goals:
Work out 4 times a week, for at least 25 minutes a day.
I want to lose 10 pounds by the time school starts.

I'm looking forward to finally feeling 'healthy'.

:)

I'm very proud of myself.
I've woken up both days
and stretched before class
and stretched before Bed =)
I'm really excited.
I think I can do this.

Yesterday I did pretty well.
but today I did okay

+Pasta Primavera (with veggies, yum!)
+cucumber + carrot + vinegar = my salad!
+Light & Fit Cherry Vanilla Yogurt
+Crispix
|Bagel (whole wheat!)
-with (veggie) cream cheese
-potato wedges
|Coffee Muffin
|Cranberry Muffin.
A Total of 1345 Calories

and I exercised =)
I've also been drinking lots of water
not that I didn't before
just now I'm not really drinking soda =)

I noticed though
that on days Ben works
(my significant other)
He brings home bagels and muffins and stuff
but he only works Mon. Tues. and every other Friday
so I don't eat them everyday
only when he brings them home, lol.
So hopefully I can break that habit.

How is everyone else doing?
Does anybody else stretch in the morning or work out during the day?
If so - how long do you spend?
I spend about 10-15 minutes in the morning and before I goto Bed Stretching
and (not including the hours I spend walking everywhere)
I exercise for about a half hour everyday.

I don't know how many of you are already subscribers
but I would suggest subscribing to www.gleemagazine.com
it's a webmail e-zine.
It is really good in giving tips for healthier lifestyles.
Including food/diet, lifestyle, how to overcome unhealthy cravings, exercise..etc..

I love it.
and I think you ladies would appreciate it also =)

Healthy/UnhealthyCollapse )

I live on Campus...in a dorm.
So I just kinda listed things all over...
In my room - In the Cafeteria - In my friends' rooms.
Anywhere I get food from, lol.

I was randomly searching the community promo community, and this one caught my eye.

Basic Intro
Name: Lauren
Age: 18
Why you joined, what you're looking for: I'm looking for support to finally start treating my body the way it deserves. I've 'recovered' from anorexia for a couple years, but I still struggle. I finally want some peace, and to finally be healthy. :)
Have any goals? I'd like to excerise a couple times a week, and eat healthy.
Anything you'd like to add: I think this community sounds like a great idea.

Pictures: I'll post some behind a cut
A little about yourself: I suffered from a horrible eating disorder when I was 14 until about 16 or 17. I was in the hospital for over a year. I also suffered from severe depression, anxiety and self harm. Over the past couple years, I have slowly been improving my life. I no longer self harm.

I love to shop, and I shop way too much. It's like my new addiction, instead of not eating. I have two jobs, and I should of graduated from high school this year. But since I was in the hospital for so long, I missed about a year of school. My parents divorced when I was young. Anyway, I've come a long way, but I still have quite a while to go! :)

Pictures of myself under the cut..
