Found this on someone’s instagram, and it’s 1000% true. No matter how long you stay clean, like it says, whether it be a couple hours, or months, that’s still progress and you’re one step closer to a successful recovery and I’m so proud of you either way. Stay strong and hang in there because I know you all can do it.
this is perfect. <3
I just saw this photo reblogged on my dash…
It is not okay to equate food with the need to exercise. It is not reasonable to view food as something that has to be burned off.
Do you know what this reminds me of? Exercise Bulimia. People who suffer from the disease use working out as a form of purging away the calories that they ate, and their behaviors lead them to having a variety of health problems, such as extreme fatigue, muscle damage, nerve damage, electrolyte imbalance, nutrient deficiencies, and athletic injury.
Please, never feel like if you eat something that you consider ‘unhealthy’ you have to immediately hop on the cardio machine to rid your system of it. Eating disorders are VERY serious, and once you start to think of food in this way, there is a high chance that you are beginning to develop disordered behaviors.
It is important to appreciate food for what it is: Nourishment. Food is not the enemy, and torturing yourself through endless exercise because of calorie consumption is unhealthy and unsafe.
very well said and very VERY important.
everyone read and reblog please.
This. This condenses something I’ve been trying to explain for a long time.
