I wanted to find some way to stay positive. So I started putting Post-Its in my planner and writing encouraging words on them every week. Every time I'd look in my planner to check what homework I had or to write in an assignment, I'd see the words and feel more empowered to kick ED's butt and enjoy my life.
Here are a few examples of what I wrote to myself:
YOU are stronger than your anorexia
You are strong, beautiful and loved
No problem is too big for God :)
You are more than just a # on a scale
Show love to yourself
You are worth fighting for!
Food=fuel, not the enemy!
Why waste your time COUNTING when you could use it LIVING?
"I'm beautiful in my way/'Cause God makes no mistakes..."
Hopefully, these words can serve as encouragement to you in your tough times!
