I'm so sorry to dredge an old thread up but I would LOVE to know more muslims, especially ones with EDs as ramadan comes up. No one else gets it even though they mean well~~

You already think about Ramadan? :D I feel like that's half a lockdown away still.

Omg me too. My ed always gets worse during Ramadan. Especially because I eat small meals throughout the day.

yeah I'm on a slippery slope to a full-scale relapse and am also in the midst of a serious stomach illness and I'm coming to terms with the fact that I don't think I'm going to be able to fast at all this year. It feels so bad. Last year was the first year I ever had to stop fasting because of my ED and it broke my heart. I love Ramadan for spiritual reasons, and I can't bring myself to poison it with ED stuff. (No judgement to anyone who feels differently about the connection between ED and ramadan!!)

Ramadan is basically here, literally like two days...I want to fast, and I'm relapsing, it works perfect! However I feel so much guilt, like I'm doing it for the wrong reasons and I'm not "in it" with good intention. Anyone relate? I reverted almost 5 years ago and I'm still not completely open with my family and its just me and my husband so I will continue to fast even when we can break, but its difficult for me. I have strong faith, but I'm using this as an excuse to act on my impulses instead of faith.

You have to break your fast, honey. If we did it for weightloss, we'd drink water, right?

How's your Ramadan going y'all?

Alhamdulilla, good. Trying to keep my intentions pure. It's not that difficult because I've never been good at fasting. Lol

How is yours?

Are you fasting now? You should have a Muslim doctor's permission to not fast.

I hope all is well with you.

If you can't fast you have to fast them later, or according to some scholars, feed the needy. But just because you don't fast doesn't take away ramadan. :)
