Anonymous said: hey love! I've been battling anorexia for years on and off. It's strange how my high weight of 140-145 can go as low as usually in the 120's when I'm anorexic. I can only get it as low as 113. How do you fight off depressing feelings? that's the reason that I gain weight and can't seem to keep off the extra few pounds to keep my looking great. When I starve myself I know depression is the one thing that makes my weight go up and down a few pounds ><. I know it must slow down my metablism too. I've had anorexica on and off for 8 years, since I was 11, so I'm sure it slows down my metablism. The long long walks don't cut it very often anymore. any other suggestions?
WHY MUST YOU BE AN ANON?! I’d love to check up on you dear <3 How to fight off the depressing feelings? I shop for cute clothes that I look amazing in, or put on some classical music && try to feel all skinny && sophisticated. The mood swings are the worst though. I remember just laying on my bed staring at the ceiling for hours just because I felt like doing nothing else. When you are actually in high spirits, write shit down that makes you feel even better, that way when your real low you know what it is. That might sound dumb, but I know when I hit that kinda low I can’t think of anything that will get me out.
As for moving the metabolism, your right, long walks won’t really cut it after a while. But every little thing counts. Obviously caffeine will spike your metabolism, as will lemon, (I’d suggest putting it in your tea) Also stretching does wonders. Your body will feel better && it’ll give you a bit of a metabolism boost. I’d also suggest getting green tea pills. Don’t OD on them && make sure to have pleanty of fluids if you’re gonna do it. I hope that helps <3
