i noticed in a few challenges she does, she tends to wear a lot of like short sleeved clothing, and you can easily see how tiny her arms are and her collarbones. like, i know she’s trying to recover but lowkey it’s very triggering and shes constantly doing lowkey body checks in her videos/tiktoks

It only took me less than half a video to raise an eyebrow. Constantly pushing her hair back to show collarbones, Her sleeves she does wear are ALWAYS rolled up JUST enough to show how tiny her wrists or elbows are. Not to mention as I watched more videos, I definitely caught her looking into the view finder during certain positions. 

 

Also she said it's been "a few months" --- I would expect to see SOME kind of progress in her being weight restored (meaning some kind of progress towards it)

 

She mentioned how tik tok took her stuff down. So I tried to find some videos and one def looked like some body checking. 

 

I dunno...So many of the comments say she's inspiring, etc. I can't put a finger on it, but I find her triggering. I can't explain why, but my gut instinct says she isn't ready to be showing her journey on youtube. She definitely needs to consider doing some trigger warnings too. The amount of time she expresses anorexic thought processes, and just showing how hard or challenging some things are for her to eat....if it panged my heart I could definitely see it causing someone vulnerable attempting to recover being scared off by it.

If I had watched her videos when I was trying to recover, I would have stopped eating right then and there. There is no way she could inspire me to gain weight while showing her collarbones and waving her stick thin arms. I don't mean to be rude or anything but she has been in recovery for a few months now yet the weight gain is ... barely noticeable

No I agree. Each recovery is their own, etc, but I don’t like the idea that thousands of vulnerable people could be watching her and thinking that’s the reality of recovery because it’s so far from it. I also don’t like how she states she’s all in, because from what I can see none of it is very intuitive

I don't expect her to hide her body just for the sake of not triggering others (free country, hello), but her mannerisms remind me a lot of mine when I'm ~discreetly~ trying to show off my body.

Also yeah I'm jealous of how she doesn't gain. I sometimes go through reactive eating episodes where I eat like her, fuck, maybe even less, and it doesn't take long before I puff up like a balloon. Whether she pretends to eat that much or she actually does but it doesn't show, I hate it.

She's great thinspo.

I've been trying to figure out what I felt was 'off' about the videos because she does seem quite nice. But it's the falseness. She remindes me of me when I'm trying to pretend that all is ok, when in reality there is a shit storm going off in my head.

I know she doesn't hide her struggles 100%, but she's holding back a heck of a lot. Which is understandable but it gives the wrong impression to those who don't know any better. Expecually those who currently have an ED.

She seems way more ok than she would be in reality. It's not an honest look into recovery.

I just get a feeling that she’s really smug 🤷‍♀️I find her irritating and annoying. Maybe she’s smug because she is fooling everyone around her, after her videos she then spends most her time vomiting and exercising? Who knows.

I just went down the rabbit hole on her YouTube and tik tok and I’m not entirely sure what to think. She says she is 3 months into her journey (3 and a half now probably) I want to say that: we don’t know where she started. On TikTok, She says she was in residential/inpatient for the last two years, and this is her first time doing all-in recovery on her own. Her BMI looks very low (I’m not going to guesstimate, just out of respect and on the off chance she is active on MPA or ever finds thus thread) and I would assume that being discharged for her meant a meal plan. It’s possible this nutritional plan was fairly low calorie if that is what she needed in to be in order to commit to it. That would mean a much slower weight restoration, which does make sense from what I am seeing. She posted just after “3 months in” saying she has stopped counting calories. I followed her so I can see her progress going forward. She seems to be working hard on the mental side of her ED, which I think is probably the most important part, so if her weight restoration is going slow, I believe it is just her trying to do everything slowly so she doesn’t freak out and change her mind. I respect that.

I think she is using her platforms to say the things she herself needs to hear and get support. It’s not 100% real or realistic, but I applaud the effort of putting the things you personally need to hear out into the world. While I personally find seeing her body triggering, I do not find her as a person triggering. I don’t feel like she overly body checks, not more than a normal person who is trying to look decent when filming themselves.

I think she is trying. Recovery isn’t linear or perfect, and while I don’t think she is making very fast physical progress, she seems to be making genuine small-steps-at-a-time progress, which is awesome. I wish her the absolute best and I believe in her and her recovery.

There has to be compensatory behaviors we don't see, she definitely fasts and exercises when the cameras arent rolling. Its sad because the act seems to be fooling her family and they seem so sweet and supportive.
I hope she is really recovering, for her own sake.

yeah ive seen a lot of her videos and they all seem strange to me. i think she uses youtube to bodycheck a lot which really isnt healthy for her, and it especially isnt if she edits her own videos. she seems so sweet but i feel like shes just being overly positive like Eugenia cooney to make everything look fine even tho its not fine at all. i just hope shes actually able to recover some day

Yes that who she reminds me of! Eugenia Cooney! The same “happy, the world is wonderful” attitude and persona. I think she’s fake and pretending to recover. Maybe a part of her hopes that if she pretends well enough she really will recover..

She was in hospital for like a week in December, and has been documenting her “all in” recovery ever since. I don’t know, there’s something not right and I don’t like it :/
