I hate seeing the ads for food right now, making me feel worse. And all those holiday recipes in every magazine just drive me nuts. Can I go to sleep and wake up after the holidays are all done?

Promise

I love reading the recipes!! I have to make them all. That's the downside. It's an obsession. Makes the ED so much worse. I'm only depressed now cuz I'm eating stuff. I'm not used to doing that. I'd rather just cook and bake and let everyone else eat it but that's not an option right now.

So now I'm fat and miserable...and my pants are getting tighter everyday :(

I like to cook for everyone but I want to eat what I cook but can't.

You can ;) I know I hate when people say that to me too but it is true. It may be hard but we CAN eat and we should.

To be honest, I just really don't want to most of the time. Well...not entirely true either. I like to eat. I just don't like what it does to me. I don't wanna deal with that mess...the after effects. If I could eat without having to deal with the anxiety, panic, etc. that would be awesome.

Hey Maryah,

That about sums it up. I actually like eating, it's just what happens if I do eat that I hate.

We can do this, we can beat this.

Love

Promise
