Eating disorders rob you of your ability to be present, whether it be with your family, with work or school, friends, loved ones, everything! One of the reasons why recovery is so great is that you regain the ability to be present in your life. Enjoy it! Youve worked hard for it. #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #bulimiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #bed #ednos #recoverywarriors #recovery #beated #therapy #mentalhealthawareness #breakthestigma #projectheal

Hello Instagrammers!! My name is Brittany and I am a new ambassador for Project HEAL. @projectheal is a foundation that raises money for individuals with #eatingdisorders who want to recover but can’t afford treatment. #projectheal also has a peer mentorship program to help strengthen early intervention and support recovery. As an ambassador, I’m here to share educational posts and positive messages about recovery, body image, and beyond. I hope you’ll join me on my #journey 🤗

Lets talk about SELF-CARE 🌈💫✨💖 It doesnt have to be a bubble bath with fancy bath bombs or an expensive green face mask! It can be something as simple as journaling, taking a gentle stroll, or going to your favorite store. What are some ways you are going to practice self-care this week? #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #bulimiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #bed #ednos #recoverywarriors #recovery #beated #therapy #mentalhealthawareness #breakthestigma #projectheal

Bam. @msrachelhollis - you get me every time! Walking boldly into my dreams and ditchin’ the excuses!

#throwbackthursday two years ago I thought I was in the best shape of my life. But i still wasn’t happy. I was engaging in harmful behaviors, replacing meals with workouts, limiting my diet, etc. I thought That this was progress for me, when i was actually relapsing. That’s the thing about eating disorders. You can fall back in the blink of an eye without even recognizing it - because they all look so different and show themselves in different ways. Last night when I looked in the mirror and noticed how much I’ve changed, my first thought was, “at least I’m happy.” I don’t know if I’ll ever be content with the way my body looks, but it works. I can walk, I can dance, I can take care of myself and my friends and my family when they need help. When I’m feeling my worst I just try to remind myself, “how can you hate something capable of so many incredible things?” . . . #tbt #poledancenation #poledsncersofig #poledance #anorexia #workout #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #projectheal #recovery #strong #strength #harleyquinn #abs #happy #healthy #halloween #truth #love #selflove #blonde #spooky #girlswithtattoos #gains #loveyourself #Deepthoughts #youcandoit #growth #freedom

today, I had one of the coolest opportunities of my career to date. and I got to experience it with my mentor, who is really and truly the essence of what it means to be a mentor. she is kind and compassionate, she is tough and has high expectations. she leads by example, but makes sure everyone has room at the table. and in addition to all of those professional attributes, she is the first person I turned to when I needed to go back to treatment this summer. I will never forget that tentative text - “do you have a few minutes to talk?” or the phone call that followed. I will never forget how kindly she listened; the questions she asked; the plan she helped me come up with. and I will never forget how seen and heard I felt. so it was extra special to share this experience with her today - she is such a cheerleader and a force for good, and so profoundly believes in the power of boosting other women up. because of her, I have started to believe that I, too, can do hard things; that I am important and kind and qualified; that I deserve a shot as much as anyone else. and the best part? it has nothing to do with my eating disorder, and to her I am not seen as an eating disorder. I am seen as ME, and encouraged to show the fuck up no matter what. eatingdisorders #eatingdisorderrecovery #EDrecovery #edwarrior #lifewithouted #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #beatingeatingdisorders #OSFED #recoverywarrior #projectheal #findinghope #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #startingover #vulnerability #shame #risingstrong #deepbreaths #findyourtribe #lovethemhard #trusttheprocess #selfcompassion #peopleneedotherpeople #playingbig #hopeisreal #seatatthetable #showup #realliferecovery #empoweringwomen #gratitude

Four agreements to help you stay in flow in heathy ways and gain personal freedom and happiness . . #projectheal #projecthealbuckscounty #recovery #recoveryfromed #thefouragreements #freedom #happiness

Allow the shifting to occur so that you can become your true authentic self...freeing yourself from the thoughts, voices, situations, and people that are no longer in service for your highest good. #projectheal #projecthealbuckscounty #authenticself #yourtruth #yourvoice #freefromed #recoveryfromed #shifting

Obsessing over outcomes only makes us anxious. Relax, slow down your breath, and let the universe do her thang. Sometimes surrendering and letting the things we cannot control be is the best option. When we have faith things work out, we can wait without anxiety. #beYOUtiful #loveyourself #selfesteem #beauty #quote #mentalhealth #recovery #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #bedrecovery #selfcare #projecthealnj #projectheal #projecthealeasternnj #edrecovery #edwarrior #bodylove #bodydiversity #bodypositivity #confidence #waitwithoutanxiety #eatingdisorderecovery #eatkaleandcupcakes #bingeeatingrecovery #gabriellebernstein #theuniversehasyourback

Capture your grief 🕊 Gratitude 💐 I honestly can’t put into words how grateful I am for the support that I have received in the past 6 years.... from being pregnant, the excitement my family shared with me, to the death of Sadie-Olivia and the care and love I received from labour, to planning her funeral, to lowering her tiny little body into the ground, and for the ongoing support that I have been given from my incredible family and friends. In the past 3 months I have had the darkest part of my heart re-opened, and the light of love placed within, I have been shown that unconditional love still exists and that my heart is finally safe within a relationship I can truly depend on! Not only do I have the love of Ryan, I also have the love of his two beautiful children, they have allowed me to become the best person I can be! And I will be grateful for the rest of my life! There are many people that aren’t in the photos above that have supported me and loved me when I couldn’t love myself, but I want to leave a special appreciation with my best friend Tanita, she saved my life when I was at my lowest, she gave me hope when there was nothing left, she stopped me from taking my own life! I am so grateful for my Browns, they truly are family to me! Thank you to everyone that has been there, supported me and strive to keep my baby’s memory alive! I am so grateful, every single day!! 💖💖💖 • • • #captureyourgrief #captureyourgrief2018 #projectheal #october #babylossawarenessmonth #babyloss #stillbirth #stillborn #angelmama #whathealsyou #whathealsyourheart

experiencing some intense, overwhelming guilt and shame and confusion right now. I don’t really know how to use my words and not my behaviors. I don’t know how to not internalize; how to see objectively when my mind feels forever clouded. I am lost and confused and scared, but also thankful for the friends who have listened to my stumbling and halting words and assured me that I am not a burden ❤️. #eatingdisorders #eatingdisorderrecovery #EDrecovery #edwarrior #lifewithouted #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #beatingeatingdisorders #OSFED #recoverywarrior #projectheal #findinghope #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #startingover #vulnerability #shame #risingstrong #deepbreaths #findyourtribe #lovethemhard #trusttheprocess #selfcompassion #peopleneedotherpeople #TWLOHA #hopeisreal #wewillbethehopeful #realliferecovery #fightingstigma #gratitude

I’m at @projectheal_nashville talking about fear! If you get a chance, follow us! #Repost @projectheal_nashville with @get_repost ・・・ One of the biggest struggles I had in moving through recovery was navigating fear. My eating disorder gave me a “safe space” to escape the fears of life. It felt protective and gave me a false sense of being grounded. The deeper into my eating disorder, the more I realized that now fear was holding me there. Starting recovery is SCARY and learning how to navigate through fear instead of running back to behaviors is a foundational step in the recovery process. Instead of letting fear be scary, let fear be the identifier of something you feel deeply about. Examine, if you can, why fear is showing up and you might be surprised by the answer. #recovery #recoveryquotes #fear #eatingdisorderrecovery #projectheal #musiccity #nashville

Capture your grief 🕊 Relationships 💖🔐 • After Sadie-Olivia, grief took over, it took us by the hand and it lead us down a dark and lonely road. I say us, because for the first time, I will talk about her dad. Grief shook our relationship to the very core, it took all the strength and weakened it until there was nothing left to work with... I didn’t want to live, and I certainly didn’t want to live with him. A year after I had Sadie-Olivia, I was pregnant again, but I knew something was wrong, I guess as a mother it’s our intuition to know... and I was right, I was rushed down to surgery after bleeding internally for days, I had a ruptured tube and my baby was ectopic! My mum called him, and he said he would come in. Instead, he went out and partied, I guess he was bored of supporting me. 10 days I spent in that hospital bed, 10 days of wondering why I wasn’t good enough, 10 days of thinking, and when I got out of that hospital, I left. But this isn’t about him... I spent the rest of my time with grief sat solemnly on my shoulder, trying my hardest to find someone to accept me, to accept my grief, to take the mental health issues that I had been kindly labelled with, I tried, I tried until I had nothing left.... and then I found you. Ryan speaks about my baby as if she where here. We laugh and joke about how we would need a bigger car, and how she would carry his little girl around and be the best big sister to his babies. He accepts my illness, he accepts my bad days, but il be honest, there aren’t many bad days because he supports me in all the right ways, I have found my soul partner, the love of my life and the light in my life, and I am so grateful for the acceptance he has for me! I will forever show my gratitude, I will forever love him! My baby girl would have adored him, he gave her mama a new lease of life 💖 • • • • #captureyourgrief #captureyourgrief2018 #projectheal #october #babylossawarenessmonth #babyloss #stillbirth #stillborn #angelmama #whathealsyou #whathealsyourheart

You can find me somewhere between working on myself, inspiring others, dodging negativity and hustling big goals. If you want to join me the door is open! If you dont the door is open! Just one request. Dont stand at the door because youre blocking traffic✌😚

Clinging to those relationships that make me smile even when it’s the last thing in the world I want to do.

Also no need to stress because tomorrow is coloring and conversation! See you at college library at 6 pm! #ProjectHEALMadison #ProjectHEAL

Last week was one of my least productive school weeks...I felt like I couldnt focus on anything and every day I felt frustrated as I moved everything on my to-do list to the next day hoping the productivity would kick in. Even though it sucks to feel that way the good news is that IT DIDNT CHANGE MY WORTH & it doesnt change yours either. Cut yourself some slack & remember that youre AWESOME👊👊 #projectheal

Monday (re)Minder! Here we have two phrases that are so simple, yet incredibly easy to forget when we need them most. Why? Our minds like to feed us information about ourselves, both positive and negative, day in and day out. However, it is imperative to remember that YOU DO NOT HAVE TO BELIEVE these thoughts! They are not the truth, they are just thoughts. You are not your body; food is not your enemy. 👇👇FOLLOW @creativeed for more encouraging reminders and current literature/research on eating disorders! 💚💜💬 COMMENT below- Whats your favorite way to nourish your mind and body??

yesterday I got this donut 🍩 this morning, I am fighting hard to eat a “safe” breakfast that I’ve had a million times. eating disorders and recovery are weird, weird things. they make no sense. they defy all logic, rules, and order. they are absolutely fucking terrifying and maddening; they make you believe that you are broken and unfixable and a failure. and yes, I’m talking about both the disorder AND the recovery process. because recovery isn’t some bright lights and flower filled path, at least not for me. for me, it’s really similar to my eating disorder - it’s scary and lonely and feels impossible...and I also don’t understand it. one minute I feel like I have a tiny handle on a tiny part of a day (I’m not yet to the point where I feel like I have a handle on things in general), and the next I feel like I’m in absolute free-fall. and right now is one of those free-fall moments. #eatingdisorders #eatingdisorderrecovery #EDrecovery #edwarrior #lifewithouted #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #beatingeatingdisorders #OSFED #EDNOS #HAES #recoverywarrior #projectheal #findinghope #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #vulnerability #shame #risingstrong #deepbreaths #findyourtribe #trusttheprocess #selfcompassion #peopleneedotherpeople #realliferecovery #fightingstigma #hopeisreal #helpispossible #squareone #startingover

Sometimes the best thing you can do is just take a breath. Even if its for two seconds (or better yet, ten!!), take that time to recenter yourself. Youll be surprised at how things can feel different afterwards! #eatingdisorderrecovery #edrecovery #bulimiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #bed #ednos #recoverywarriors #recovery #beated #therapy #mentalhealthawareness #breakthestigma #projectheal

Get there healthy. Race bravely. Have the most fun. My only goals for @chimarathon, and I think I aced them. . . Thank you, Chicago, for being the place where I got to find out what happens when me and my body work together towards a common goal. Thank you for helping me prove to myself that anything is possible, especially if I learn to listen (and surrender) to what my body really needs. From fuelling before/during/after (all the time!), to taking unplanned rest days, to going on SLOW runs because sometimes we just need time on feet! (thanks @yonyilma26 💚). I’m so grateful that I got to join 45k other runners on the streets of Chicago last Sunday. I’m even more grateful that I finished with a smile on my face, and got to spend the rest of the weekend enjoying decadent food, amazing sights, and the best people. . . “your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are the moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is. - @karagoucher. . . . . . . . #mychicagomarathon #chicagomarathon2018 #wmmajors #cascaderunclub #headupwingsout #bebrave #irunthisbody #recoverywarrior #fuelyourrun #runfasteatslow #postracethoughts #runhappy #runchicago #runlikeagirl #bravey #rungoals #pnwrunners #chimarathon #marathoner #marathonrecovery #neonmakesyoufaster #projectheal #neda #lifewithouted #goodbyeedhellome #redefinepossible

is this how you self care? asking for a friend...💅🏼 self care is probably my least favorite “coping skill,” second only to self compassion. it’s not that it seems selfish to me, it’s just that it seems like something that cannot possibly ever work. how can getting my nails done help me not have an eating disorder anymore? how can “taking some time for myself” lift the depression, when it makes me want to crawl out of my skin? how can recharacterizing things I already do (books, TV, cleaning, candles) be helpful in getting me out of this hole I’ve dug myself back into? I have no answers to those questions. but, I guess, at least I’ve got pretty nails. #EDwarrior #EDrecovery #recoverywarrior #recoverygangster #anorexiarecovery #lifewithoutED #afteranorexia #NEDA #HAES #bodyacceptance #beatingeatingdisorders #projectheal #startingover #loveyourself #selfcompassion #selfcare #selfcaresunday #findyourtribe #lovethemhard #peopleneedotherpeople #strongisthenewhealthy #exerciseaddiction #compulsiveexercise #movement #intuitivemovement #recoveryisntlinear #realliferecovery

Today is #WorldMentalHealthDay and, though it’s easy to imagine the illness of anorexia as purely physical, in which a person is emaciated and in intensive care fighting for their life, eating disorders are a MENTAL illness. Atypical anorexia, which the American Psychological Association’s DSM-V classifies as when “all criteria for anorexia are met, except the individual’s weight is within or above the normal range”. Further, note that atypical anorexia is 3x MORE common than typical anorexia, both of which can be kept a secret and is extremely deceiving to friends and loved ones. The take away: you may not be able to physically see that someone is struggling with an eating disorder. In fact, there is very good chance you won’t. This does not mean that they are not battling constant inner voices of the world’s deadliest psychiatric illness telling them that they are alone and unworthy. #EndTheStigma #NEDA
