      I also have a restrict/binge cycle too and it sucks. I used to be very very underweight because I wouldn’t eat. When I finally recovered and was at a healthy weight, my doctor gave me meds that made me gain 35 lbs in 3 months 😭 he said weight gain wasn’t a side effect but then apologized later because he “forgot it does that”. I’d love to talk about healthy eating habits and exercise with you if you’d like :)

      Healing from ED can be done. I’m looking for a group that wants help with a 8 week program FREE. Surviving and healing from ED.

      I haven’t personally tried Noom, but I really like the concept around incorporating your brain/behavior into the mix. We can find loads of info on how to lose weight, but it doesn’t always help because it’s more about changing thoughts, beliefs and behaviors and that’s much bigger. :) my breakthrough came after doing group therapy around weight loss and the emotional experiences tied to body image and dietary habits. Another resource I highly recommend is Precision Nutrition. I had a coach certified through them who helped me develop healthy thoughts and habits. Love to your amazing magic machine! ❤️

      It can be really discouraging, but this is something that's important to remember! It's not about the numbers or the weight necessarily, it's about being healthy! And when it comes to weight loss through exercise, I'd recommend measuring yourself instead of weighing most of the time! Because muscle is heavier than fat, and depending on the exercise you're doing you're probably gaining at least some muscle so that can also alter the scale. But overall it can be a long process, just gotta keep at it and I promise eventually things will start happening :'> And sometimes things will feel like they're at a standstill, at times like that maybe ask yourself "can I walk ten minutes longer than I usually do?" And if the answer is yes, add it to the routine and slowly increase the amounts as you condition yourself. At the beginning of this journey I could only run ten minutes on the elliptical, and man was I winded!!! Now I can comfortably go 30 and go an hour with added effort. It's all about baby steps! Something too is perhaps look at targeted exercises, like if you're like me and carry more weight on the stomach and thighs they have exercises aimed specifically at toning those areas up! And the more muscle you have too the more calories you're going to burn resting. Ahh sorry this is getting long now!!! But if you ever want to chat I'm always open, being there for eachother while on these journeys is what this place is all about after all! 💖
