How a Youtube cooking show helped me recover from an eating disorder

optimistfeminist:

I started hating my body when I was 9. When I was 13, I fantasized about getting liposuction to suck out every molecule of fat. When I was 15, I started to “cut back” on carbs. Over the next 7 years I continued obsessing about food and exercise. I made up so many rules that eating became a chore…

Fact of the Day:The giant squid, or Architeuthis dux as it’s scientifically known, has a complex yet small donut-shaped brain. The squid’s oesophagus runs through the ‘donut-hole’ of the brain making it essential for food to be ground into small pieces by it’s notorious beak.Read more about this fascinating creature herewww.ocean.si.edu/giant-squid (Graphic via funnyjunk.com)

"I won’t beg someone to love me. I learned long ago that there is no use in hopeless pleas of trying to make someone stay. I am too good to chase someone who does not know my worth and I am too wild to keep waiting for someone who doesn’t acknowledge my value. I want to be loved unconditionally. I shouldn’t have to fight so hard for it. I do not have the time to prove to someone that I am worth it. I shouldn’t have to prove any of that; I am worth more than that."

Remember that time when they made up a disease for black ppl when we didnt wanna be stuck as slaves?

Remember when they operated on black women with no anesthesia to get modern gynecological surgical procedures?

Remember when they sterilized poor woc without consent to keep us from ‘creating more undesirables’?

Remember when the government allowed Black men to go untreated with Syphilis even after a cure was discovered?

Remember when minority heavy areas in cities were sprayed with radioactive material to ‘test’ how America could handle a nuclear fallout?

Oh, you dont? Because I do…

Go look it up. Every single one was done by a white supremacist nation called America.

FOR SCIENCE!

Don’t forget that in 1975 about 35% of Puerto Rican Women were sterilized without their consent by the US government

Don’t forget that a few months ago, incarcerated women, who are primarily women of color because of the systemic racism in our justice system, were sterilized without their consent by the US government.

So I probably went to sleep at 6:00 this morning.

I woke up at 8:30. 

Then I went to church and we went out to eat after. (I ate a salad, it wasn’t that bad). 

But then I went back to sleep. 

And when I woke up at 9:20. 

So I didn’t do the diet today. I”m back on it tomorrrow, I promise!

in other news, I’m going to go off in search of someone who will just sit outside with me and talk in parking lots with like juice and snacks and whatever after stores close.

Or someone who wouldn’t mind random long sleepy conversations in general. I miss having people to banter with like that. 

I volunteer as tribute!
