The tiktoks where the girl is like “you can do it, eat with me” I’m sorry but it’s so cringe

I just want to add that we don’t need more middle/upper class thin white girls documenting their recovery journeys on social media. Skimming through the recovery hashtags, there is no diversity there. What about people of color? What about people with other body types? What about men? What about LGBTQ folks? What about older women? What about eating disorders other than AN?

I wouldn’t normally agree with a statement like this but it’s gotten to the point where I’m embarrassed to tell people about my disorder because I know what the stereotypes are, which I a white female fit right into. I feel like people will just look at me and not take my ed seriously because of that if you get what I mean? These accounts definitely feed into the stereotypes, and you’re right there’s no diversity whatsoever! Ugh I just hate most recovery accounts and the bullshit fake positivity “you are not your disorder” posts they share. There’s so much more to Ed’s than what they share. It’s a mental illness and it’s not pretty, nor a personality trait

But anyone can choose to make a recovery account on social media? In fact, one of the most popular is Stephanie Buttermore who isn't white.

Surely recovery accounts should be encouraged for everyone. If they help that individual, allow it.

I'm mixed Italian/ Arabic and I personally relate to accounts for their personality, not immutable characteristics such as sex or race.

No way any medical professional would call her "recovered" at that weight.
And she's shaming people who are calling her out in the comments. Yikes.


Right?!
Like I mean people get involuntarily hospitalised that are bigger than her :/

Instagram suggested reels bringing out the goods today in regards to this topic.

Katie_fitness19: clearly orthorexic/possible AN, loads of body checking, saying she is going to be a registered dietician (ie very cliche)

Kittyjonesfit: orthorexia + body checks

Running_4_food: self explanatory

Like wtf Instagram this is on my dog’s Instagram account too haha

Just all of it really.

High restricting is the way for me because slow and steady wins the race. As far as I'm concerned, as long as you end the day on a calorie deficit, you have won.

I kicked anorexia’s ass! Look at how sick I was! *montage of 12 emaciated body checks* Look how much I eat now! *obvious binge food*

I get that a part of anorexia recovery is letting yourself be free to eat what you want, but $35 of gas station food at midnight, and shovelling it into your mouth like it’s a race barely giving yourself time to breath screams b/p to me

Especially when their lowest weight was like BMI 12 and now they’re like BMI 13 and go on and on about how great they feel and how they’re soooo recovered now

This is more about recovery videos because I’m back to bulk-watching them atm, and they’re all like:

- As a child I was always happy
- Then ~sports~
- Started watching my weight
- Hospital
- Now everything’s fine and I’m so grateful for all that’s happened!

Not hating, but I’ve had an ED for 18 years. What magic pill did you take to fix it all after one hospital visit? I feel for these girls because I hope that really is it, but I know for most of them, everything is not going to be fine.

 

^^^preaaaach

 

it's those people who post "my anorexia story" on youtube, and like most of it is a sad montage of photos of them looking super sick, malnourished, feeding tube, body checks etc. and then at the end they put like 2 photos of "me now!" having gained weight. it just feels self-indulgent, like they're trying to prove or show off that they were 'able' to lose weight/restrict to x amount/etc. and we're supposed to believe they're better? i could be wrong, but i feel like even just posting images of your darkest ED days indicates that you still feel quite attached to that time. and this goes without saying, but these videos are more much triggering than inspiring, regardless of whether you're dealing with an ED or not

 

i wish i could have recovered after just one hospital visit, but alas... and even if i had, i personally wouldn't post graphic photos for fear of harming my viewers

YES omg, one of her brown signs was trying to call out recovery accounts that don't follow their own advice... pot, kettle?? Until her post about relapsing (after backlash, I'm assuming) she hadn't put on ANY weight in months, and was clearly still underweight. She also wears a lot of revealing clothing for a recovery account. Shorts and vests are not inappropriate in themselves of course, it's just different in an ed space and she knows that
