    Hi,

    I'm trying to challenge my thoughts surrounding my eating disorder.

    Ive realised it makes no difference if i manage to eat an appropriate amount of calories each day, because if my thoughts don't change im still going to have a problem.

    Its the control aspect. If I eat x amount of calories in a day i can be a brilliant strong happy person, if i eat more than this set amount im a loser, worthless and weak (i could go on)

    So I'm looking for advice, opinions and experiences with trying to challenge the thoughts surrounding an eating disorder.

    Please don't suggest therapy or doctors, right now those are not an option.

    could you slowly and gradually increase the number of calories allowed?

    How about seeing a dietitian then one who can set up a healthy diet for you so you know exactly what to eat and when and the amount

    The times when I have felt like I am overcoming it are the times when I am suffering the most. Your weight just fades in significance when you have so much other shit to worry about.
