you do not need to constantly justify yourself. go ahead. eat pancakes. eat a ton at dinner. eat ice cream sundaes at 1am. take a rest day. take six rest days. sleep in. watch a movie. watch ten movies. no explanations needed. you’re allowed to be kind to yourself.

this means a lot, my boyfriend considers him self fat no matter what I tell him. One of my best guy friends thinks no one will date him because he is over weight which is the most un true thing every. All guys bodies are attractive.

This means a lot to me too because my boyfriend also thinks he’s fat regardless of what I say. The saddest day was when I watched him step on a scale and get sad at a number he saw. Spread the love.

To anyone struggling with their mental health:

lifeaccordingtohan:

-You do not need to be sicker to get help.
- You do not need to self harm or starve yourself to ‘prove’ that you’re struggling.
- You deserve help, you are worth it.

If you’re struggling, you deserve to get help. No ifs. No buts!

If you have an eating disorder, are in recovery, had an eating disorder, struggled with eating ever, and/or are human, and you’re eating, you’re doing the right thing. Congratulations. Kudos to you.

And if anyone tells you otherwise, you have full permission from me to punch their lights out.

PREACH :D

mychemicalrecovering:

why has everyone started fucking reblogging work out tips? My dash was just filled with how to burn X in X time and how to do X to make your body look like this! *insert image of athlete*
It’s not healthy when you’re still in recovery to be doing that, I find it extremely disordered if i’m honest. Especially when you’re mind isnt in the right place. 

^THIS^

It’s not cool kids, sure, maybe you’re able to cope with it yourself, but I can assure you that plenty of your followers will not be. Let’s be setting a positive example here, right?

Not that I don't absolutely ADORE your rants, but I wouldn't mind a video every now and again. I'd love to hear you talk!

As you wish; next rant will be as a video. Thanks for the feedback :) 

That Icky Love Thing

Right then ladies and gentlemen, so today I’m going to be talking about love and its importance to recovery.
Now, there are several different forms of love, so be aware that I’m not just talking about the romantic sort of love. I’m well aware that plenty of folks just plain don’t feel romantic love, so whilst that type of love will be mentioned, it’s not by any means the be all and end all of the term.
When I say love here, I’m referring to any particularly strong emotional attachment.
So what does that have to do with recovery? Evvverything.
In my opinion, you have to have love for something, if you are to have any hope of recovery. There, I said it. I know that this may not be the most popular opinion in the universe, but that’s what I have experienced, it’s what helped bring me to the stage I am today, sorry if it doesn’t fit your philosophy.Love gives you something to fight for when sense fails you. When you can’t justify eating for the sake of eating, you can always eat for love, because love doesn’t need sense. I know that I had many many occasions where the logic behind eating simply didn’t make enough of a difference, the knowledge that I ‘should eat’ wasn’t enough for me to want to act, because everything just hurt too much. You wanna know what my saving grace was? You’ll love this: it was Pokemon.
Not like that you dirty minded little blogger you.
No, I had Pokemon Sapphire on my Gameboy Advance, and oh my goodness but did I love those little creatures.
To date, that’s the only Pokemon game in which I caught ‘em all, I actually properly finished the game. Weekends were my allotted playing time, and each one was spent facing the elite four time and time again to help level up all my little baby monsters. Harvey the Blaziken and Quint the Kyogre were the best friends I could ask for, and I felt like I owed them for all the work they had done battling for me. And yeah, this sounds a little bit on the crazy side, but I’m sure you can understand that I was well beyond caring about sticking within the realms of sanity. The end result was that I promised myself that I would live through another week so that I could carry on playing. I learned the main lesson behind the games, the one which I chose to take and adopt as my url interestingly enough. Be the best that you can be.
So that’s what I’m trying to pass on today: find something that makes you want to be the best that you can be and hold onto it. And no, it doesn’t need to be Pokemon. Totally not necessary. My obvious recommendation would be an actual person. Could be a romantic partner, absolutely, but also family members, pets, friends, anybody. Hey, you yourself would be ideal, but I realise that’s fairly unlikely. No matter who you are or at what stage of life you are, I believe that there is always going to be something or something out there that makes you want to strive to be better, to get fixed, to make the most of your life. That, kids, is love, and I heartily suggest you follow that feeling. Even if, no wait, especially if it’s scary.
It will make all the difference, trust me.
I’m off now, so as always, take care of yourself and be the best that you can be. Ooh, as a quick side-note, I was thinking about maybe instead of having these big-ass text posts, just taking the contents and making videos out of them to post on here. Would you prefer to see/hear my delightful little rants or should I just stick with the text-based form?
Your call, just drop me a message letting me know, as well as about anything else whatsoever. Go for it :)
Until next time,
-Janek
