Eating dark chocolate, 2 or more giant sweet potatoes, lots of oatmeal drowned in honey and fruit, and a half block of cheese every day for breakfast and then lots of meat and starches( brown rice. beans, etc.) for dinner. I went from 41 to 47kg in a month. Proof that you can get fat without eating junk food.
Noted. There go my so called "safe binge foods." :c

I started dating my boyfriend... he eats out all the time and doesn't care to eat healthy. I held out for a little while, but gradually got to the point where I wasn't thinking about my weight. He tells me he thinks I'm beautiful and all at any size which is great and I'm thankful for, but I don't think I look good at this weight, so now I'm back trying to lose again.
saying "no thanks" to food is saying "yes please" to skinny

In all honesty, my ED is what caused me to be fat
It's crazy how you go to the extremes to be skinny and avoid being fat, and then suddenly you lose control for a long period of time and become exactly what you feared being

I was never athletic growing up and my parents always bought us junk food and we always used food to cope with our problems. This was years ago now, I've changed my lifestyle since.

for me, it was by choosing recovery. i definitely encourage ppl to recover or at least give it a try but all it has brought me was weight gain and bed. i used to only restrict and i was good at it. it was easy. and now i binge all the time. it is this uncontrollab need to keep constantly eating. and that’s how i’ve gained 30 pounds in 3 months. i fight the urge everyday. it is miserable
I went thru the same thing ur not alone!!!!!

My ex threatened to dump me if I didn't gain weight back when I was dealing with ana back in 2012.
Then I went on birth control.
Then I got depressed because I was in a cycle of cheating and emotional abuse.
Then I developed hypothyroidism (thanks, genetics).
And then developed binging tendencies.
However, I also was diagnosed with ARFID (think of it as a legitimate phobia of new foods) and so many of my safe foods with THAT disorder are processed garbage.
Makes me wish I wasn't terrified of purging, because now I'm over twice my lowest weight from 2012/2013. It sucks.

for the first time, when i got to my hw, i didnt know anything about my weight, i was completely alone, i didnt really know what calories where, my mom gave me lots of food every day, i binge ate, and had years and years and years of repressed trauma, etc etc, one day i ended up at the hospital for acid reflux, and at the doctor i got weighed, 179 lbs (81 kg). i guess that slapped some sense into me and i started to loose weight, developed an ed. for the 2nd time, recently, i was in a binge/restrict cycle, i had just started my restrict cycle and was weighed at the doc again, 172! oh hell no!, i got to that weight because of a big move, more repressed trauma, and a binge cycle, so i kinda ballooned up again, and theres no way i could go back to my highest weight again. i was always overweight my whole life because of how my mom fed me and binge eating. tl;dr: i got fat because of mental illness, life changes, and my how my mom feeds me
skinny looks good on everything

I have literally never known a time where I wasnt fat, I always ate trash as a kid, ever really cared about it till I developed an alcohol addiction in 2019. That and quarantine and Im at the point where I hate my body shape so here I am :/

I've always had a really big appetite, but food didn't start becoming a huge problem for me till I was 15/16. My parents divorced when I was 15 and as the oldest child I was thrown into the middle and parentified so my siblings could have a decent quality of life, so I unconcsiously started overeating and eating out of boredem and occasionally bingeing to cope with the stress. I didn't even realize I was overeating and eating unhealthy foods everyday (I used to try my best to eat decently healthy) until a year later. But by then it was too late. I already established the habits and I've been trying to get a hold on them ever since.

But... recovery made me fat.
I basically spiralled and developed what I think is BED, but i’m slipping back into restriction now and I plan to continue this for as long as I live. My family forced me to recover - I was admitted into inpatient and I accepted fate because everybody was yelling at me to EAT, and I fucking love food. My mother told me I was ugly and too skinny, so I started to eat and eat. I basically just fell off the rails and ate everything in sight. The biggest thing was white bread!! I binged on it. Now I am 156 lbs (Previously 96 lbs) and I feel ruined. Food no longer tastes good because I can feel my fat stomach and thighs whenever I eat. Hopefully I can get back to my old BMI or lower ! (17)

Unhealthy eating habits from childhood, didn't have much money plus there weren't really any places you could get fresh produce so I mostly got fed frozen food or super oily stuff.

Gained weight during a pregnancy. Gained more from believing that losing weight was impossible because of haes/fa logic.had me thinking being fat was ok and making it worse wasn’t as bad as trying to lose it.
