TW: Eating Disorder, disordered eating. CW: Disordered eating and weight loss. Anyone losing weight and has a history of disordered...?

Does anyone else on a weight loss journey with a history of disordered eating, find the medical/psychological terms and tips used by the medical profession to just be fancier/medical jargon-filled terms for what you did when you were ill in the throes of disordered eating? 🤔

'Like make sure to drink a ridiculous amount of water. Or try to make sure your movement output matches the calories you're intaking'.

It really just dawned on me how fatphobic most of our global society is🥲

You're praised for engaging in those restrictive measures when you're overweight. As if 'finally you've seen the light' when working out multiple times a day when in a bigger body.

I do want to lose weight, but it feels like every system and institution is almost goading me to fully engage in disordered eating. And to hell with the consequences as long as you're in a smaller body😮‍💨

Awakening Self Actualization At A Health Retreat: My Story Of Overcoming Binge Eating Disorder

In a serene health retreat nestled amidst breathtaking landscapes of Kelowna, BC, I embarked on a transformative journey of self-discovery. Little did I know that this experience would unearth the profound realization that I held the true power to change my life, especially in the face of my battle with binge eating disorder.

During the retreat, we engaged in group activities and open discussions that delved into the depths of our personal struggles. As I sat among individuals who shared their own stories of triumph and resilience, the topic of binge eating disorder emerged. It struck a chord within me, as I realized the immense sadness and lack of control I experienced around food, coupled with a deep dissatisfaction with my appearance.

For so long, I had placed blame on external factors and others, seeking solace in the belief that I had no control over my actions. But in that transformative moment, surrounded by a supportive community, I realized that if I truly desired change, it had to come from within. Nothing changes if nothing changes, and I was the one standing in my own way to recovery.

I confronted the pain, shame, and vulnerability that had long plagued me. Through education, self-reflection, and embracing a newfound sense of empowerment, I gradually unraveled the complex layers of my binge eating disorder. It was a journey of self-discovery, as I explored the emotional triggers and underlying issues that fueled my destructive relationship with food.

With each step forward, I recognized that recovery was not a linear path. There were setbacks and challenges along the way, but I remained steadfast in my commitment to change. I discovered the importance of self-compassion and forgiveness, understanding that healing takes time and patience.

Through this journey, I found hope and inspiration in the stories of others who were also battling binge eating disorder. Their resilience and determination fueled my own determination to reclaim my life from the grips of this disorder. It was through their stories that I realized the immense strength within me, and the potential for transformation that existed.

My journey to overcoming binge eating disorder taught me invaluable lessons about self-empowerment and personal growth. By embracing the realization that I held the power to change, I embarked on a transformative path of healing and self-discovery. Today, I stand as a testament to the strength of the human spirit and the possibility of reclaiming one’s life from the clutches of binge eating disorder. May my story serve as a beacon of hope and inspiration to others who are navigating their own journeys of recovery.

Binge eating


A severe and life-threatening disorder, Binge Eating Disorder is characterized by recurring episodes of excessive food consumption. A recent but important addition to the officially recognised list of disorders, binge eating is capable of immense harm to the body and mind.

Basics of Binge Eating:

Warning Signs:

Binge eating is an insidious disorder, it gradually develops over a period of time. Be wary of these warning signs:

-Stealing or hoarding of food in strange places

-Withdrawing from friends and usual activities

-Going on-and-off on diets

-Uncomfortable while eating around others


Binge eating directly impacts your physiology and psychology, it comes with a plethora of symptoms. They include

-Fluctuations of weight, both increase and decrease.

-Stomach cramps


-Acid Reflux

-Difficulty in concentration


The prominent health risks associated with Binge Eating Disorder are clinical obesity, weight stigma and weight cycling. Yo-yo dieting is common among those with BED. Not all people who are clinically obese have BED, but two-thirds of people with BED are clinically obese. Similarly, while most people with BED have higher-than-average weight, it can be diagnosed at any weight.

More severe cases of BED lead to Bulimia Nervosa: a life-threatening eating disorder involving cycles of binge eating and behaviors like self-induced vomiting.

Just need the breathe #BingeEatingDisorder #EatingDisorders

I haven’t used this app since 2019 and I never thought I would use it again but I feel alone and I just want my voice to be heard by people who understand what I’m going through. I’ve always had eating problems, my first eating problems was I was too skinny then once a major life event happened I gained weight, lost it again and in 2021 I’ve started to binge eat constantly. I don’t know my weight I refuse to weigh myself but I’m heavier than I ever been before. I just graduated college and while I was in college I was embarrassed to eat in the dining hall, I felt watched and judged. Everyday passing the dining hall windows and I saw my reflection, unhappy and disgusted with who I see, but I couldn’t stop eating. I feel paralyzed to do something about it, I want to go to the gym but I have no motivation to leave my house and I’m constantly walking on eggshells around my mom when I eat. If she hears rustling of a bag in the night she questions what I’m eating and it hurts and I always ask permission if I can have seconds. I broke down last night upset with my weight my mom always goes “what is it this time” I admit I complain a lot but growing up with her saying that or her dismissing my feelings hurts and I told her that and she just says “you come at the worse times”. Tell her how unhappy I was she told “im being honest and truthful but no one wants to date someone who looks like you” I was so hurt and I told her to apologize and she said no because it’s the truth and I can’t take it. I was angry, I kept hitting my legs, wanting it to bruise just to let my pain out, thinking about stabbing my leg or taking pills. She pointed to a picture on my bedside of when I was skinner and said “what happened to her?” I know I have to make the first move to become better but it’s so hard feeling paralyzed by emotions.

Tips for emotional eating?

I think I’m developing binge eating disorder or at least for sure emotional eating, I’m pretty overweight for my age but based on my ethnicity and such we are more naturally curvy or plus sized, but regardless for health and trying to slim down or at least be healthier/ more active and eat healthier or less big portions. What are your tips or anything that helps you personally if you struggle with this or even if you don’t any ideas, or anything you have personally looked up online/ learned in therapy etc.

Thanks!! Appreciate it! Super hard to lose weight but I really need to make a change :c before I gain more weight I’m currently 85kg and 5”3 so it’s definitely too high for my frame. Mainly the thighs and also lately my stomach/waist.

Potential signs of eating disorders


Eating disorders including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and other specified feeding or eating disorder (OSFED) most commonly emerge during adolescence or young adulthood and disproportionately impact females. These illnesses often linger, so it is not rare for them to persist into a woman’s reproductive years. When they do, they can impact the health of the baby as well as the mother, so it is critical to understand the interactions between pregnancy and an eating disorder.

Research on the incidence of eating disorders during pregnancy (and in general) is limited. In addition to a relative lack of studies, the results of the studies we do have may be skewed by the reluctance of many women who are pregnant to admit they have an eating disorder. Some estimates indicate that—if subthreshold disorders are included—eating disorders may affect between 5 to 8 percent of women during pregnancy.

One study conducted in Norway found that one out of 21 women had an eating disorder while pregnant, with binge eating disorder being the most prevalent.

Women with eating disorders often have irregular or missed periods. Women with these symptoms often assume they cannot get pregnant. This belief is not true–while women with active anorexia nervosa have more difficulty conceiving and seem to have lower rates of pregnancy, pregnancies do occur.

The rate of unintended pregnancies is, in fact, higher in women with anorexia nervosa—perhaps due to the belief that contraception is unnecessary.

Research on the fertility of women with eating disorders is mixed. Two small studies found the rate of eating disorders in women attending fertility clinics to be approximately 10 percent or higher, which is much higher than the rates of eating disorders among women in the population.
