I don’t share much about my eating habits with my therapist. It’s been messed up for a while. I go back and forth; eating a good amount of food, or I barely eat. And usually I don’t eat cause I’m nauseous from anxiety, eating begins to feel like a chore. However, I’ve also noticed that when I don’t eat it’s also because I’ve been having a hard time getting motivation/energy to workout. And I’m constantly looking in the mirror, critiquing myself. All of this gets so exhausting. Can anybody else relate?

      I relate to this a lot. Something that reminds me to eat is having someone around me, surprisingly. I tend to be around people who enjoy cooking/eating and it feels easier to try to eat when I'm in a positive atmosphere. When I'm talking with others while snacking or a meal time, I don't focus so much on the nausea I normally feel.

        @bugger I’m a lil bit opposite of that. Unless people force me to eat. I hate eating in front of people haha. I get nauseous around other people more.

      my eating habits r also back n forth for me: either i don’t eat at all or i eat A LOT, no in between. but for me it’s kinda the opposite ? i don’t workout on the days where i eat the most n vice versa. meanwhile, on days where i hadn’t eaten much, i am more likely to workout — like i’ve gone this far without eating so i might as well go workout too ? it’s def tied to my black n white thinking

        @tira damn, it’s best to workout on days you do eat to build muscle. But I’ve got some of that black and white thinning too. For me, if I eat a lot, I have to workout.

      I honestly can relate! My boyfriend has a habit of checking to make sure I eat because if it weren't for that, I wouldn't eat at all. But sometimes I get bouts were I eat wonderfully on my own. Like actual portions. But due to my depression I have no motivation to work out. I struggle so hard with my body image and I know I must lose weight. But I've lost all motivation. Hang in there, buddy!!
