Lillian's journal

... He died of a heart attack only 47 yrs old. :( And I have since then tried to have a healthy life style and I quit smoking 13 years ago. I had anorexia in the 80 ties and was treated for it and went to psychotherapy for many years. Also I did eat lots of medications that I no longer take since ...

Just saying hi

... that I was fat, although looking back I see from old photographs that I was a very slender child. At age 17 I started on the slippery slope of anorexia which lasted for some years. Eventually I wanted to get better and start enjoying life again, I wanted to be able to go out without having ...

Re: The Eating-When-Hungry Journal :)

... oh well -- I threw up a non-glam pic in the interests of keeping it real. D'y'see what I'm saying though? The idea that I would get screened for anorexia at this body weight is ridiculous. (This pic is me at 5'4", 107lbs, so technically 18.4 BMI, which is a hair below the 18.5 that a chart ...

Re: The Eating-When-Hungry Journal :)

... casing than I prefer! On a side note, I had a good laugh that the weight at which I resemble a sausage casing is one that would be screened for anorexia as it's slightly below the 111 pounds that represents the low end of a normal BMI, if you asked a medical chart. It's always kind of hilarious, ...

Eating disorders and western diet

... islands. The usual interpretation is that exposure to a thin western body image as ideal affected the young girls and encouraged dieting and then anorexia. I wonder if western processed and packaged foods also came to Fiji at that time. I would like to find out when western food arrived in Fiji, ...

Re: What The Hell Is Wrong With People?!!!

... or with life, well, you can easily see why a kid in those circumstances would turn to something foolish (turn to food, turn to alcohol, turn to anorexia, turn to stealing) in order to escape their situation or help them feel better. But the falsehood seems to be that as grown-ups we have other ...

Re: The Eating-When-Hungry Journal :)

... and sensible about my food choices. Well, i say this because I think there is a lot of hysteria about "restricting". People who have anorexia or bulimia in their past (which I don't), may have to say to themselves "You will eat three meals, not four, not two, because you've lost ...

Re: On Global BC TV Vancouver BC this morning

... if your kids come home from school and say they want to be vegan then it's a red light sign that they may be developing an eating disorder like anorexia. OMG Talk about fear mongering!

Re: Just an observation

The only time I believe a family member should intervene regarding someone's weight is in the event of anorexia nervosa/bulimia, or morbid obesity (where someone's mobility has been compromised). These are both extreme cases and life threatening. I never comment on someone's ...

In Recovery (eating disorder)

I will keep this brief and to the point. I as a teen had anorexia and then later on as an adult had full blown binge eating disorder. I am now one year in recovery from binge eating and no longer binge but the weight didn't magically come off ( I didn't ...

well thanks to just about everyone - specially Dr M

... a red flag as I had bulimia in my youth. A few days later I gently asked after her daughter and she replied that her daughter who was vegan had anorexia. The daughter was away at boarding school and it all sounded horrendous. I didn't like to pry too much. Later conversation revealed that she ...

Re: vegan youtube drama

I genuinely feel sorry for her. Recovering from anorexia. Trying to gain weight. Messed up digestive system for high fat vegan foods. At least she says she can still eat starches.

BAD NEWS FROM THE DOCTOR....

Re: Changing perspectives of weight.

Based on BMI alone, no good medical practitioner would prescribe methadone, or hospitalize someone for force-feeding. So, BMI ...
