Surprisingly is was what my sister said about people with eating disorders...if only she knew the half of it.
"I don't count calories. Besides, you don't want to be like one of those girls who counts all calories as bad calories or eats like a strawberry and considders it their daily calories."
Then she went on to say that counting calories is an eating disorder, blah blah blah..."
That triggered me back onto this site for the first time in months. I had stopped weighing every ounce of my food and writing down and calculating exact calories,instead I had been doing approximate calculations in my head mostly, but the second she said all of that I whipped out my phone and searched for days until i found the perfect way to calculate my calories, water intake, weight etc. A better app than I already had, all the while starting to count calories again and now I'm back to not just obsessing over the calories and portion sizes, and worrying about food all the time, but every single little individual calorie that might possibly enter my body. I started weighing my food again with my digital food scale and now it lives in my bedroom.
