Swimming. Oh my god, I don't even know when the last time I went swimming actually was, probably over 10 years ago when I was a child. 


I've conditioned myself to be completely covered up and I feel too uncomfortable showing any skin beyond my forearms, it sucks.

I used to love laying in my mom's bed while clinging to her. I really want to have her hold me like that again, but I'm scared she'll just end up feeling how bony I became.

This got me wondering if there's anything you used to do that's now either more difficult and taxing or no longer an option.

Thank you for starting this - it got me working on a long list all afternoon… turns out I have a heart rattling around in my cage after all. This thread is a keeper - very special 🙏
I came, I saw, I tried to leave
but life just wasn’t done with me
So I waved hospice goodbye, took Ana’s hand in mine and begged
“Peace until the end?”
And with wry reply she sighed
“I’ll do my best my friend…”
So we live
side by side
Until it’s our turn to drift away
on the gentle tide

Current BMI - 13.3
Goal: 14-15 so I am strong enough to fulfill this life’s purpose before blowin’ this popsicle stand and hitchhiking to the next life…

Working out super hard. I’m scared my heart can’t handle it anymore. 🥺. It was the greatest escape.

Baking/cooking in general and enjoying what I made for myself and others.
Spending a cold day just snuggling on the sofa under a blanket watching a movie instead of exercising compulsively outside.
Going out most nights with my friends and being carefree.
Having energy to spend time with other people.

having enough energy and a clear mind so i can write. one of my only joys in life and i can barely do it anymore.

not hating my body enough so i can go swim in the lake i used to go to as a kid :/

and god not one thing but my ed has taken up so much time in my mind i have no interests. i miss being a person with things that i like and hobbies and whatever else. everything i do is just a distraction so i don't eat. i miss doing things because i genuinely like them. i miss caring about more things than just my body and food.

SW: 245 CW: 187 UGW: 90-75 / male / GW for xmas is: 170

Trying new, obscure foods without worrying about the fact that I didn’t know the calorie amount. Going to restaurants and picking the best sounding item and not the side salad. Certain physical contact without flinching away. Not worrying about being a potential trigger for others or being a cause for worry.
