EATING DISORDERS AND FEAR OF BEING CRITICIZED



She wants to know how to accept your body, when other's are going to judge you because of it. This is directly tied to Maslow's Third Hierarchy of Needs, to want to feel worthy of love and inclusion to survive with our tribe. We aren't wired to seek survival alone. When you hold yourself to high standards, to feel worthy of inclusion and love... you are the judge, and you are the one who believes you are worthy of judgment. The goal is to believe you are worthy of love and belonging even if others don't agree. It is your job to validate your life, NOT THEIR'S.

BINGE EATING: EXISTING IN AN OBESE BODY FOREVER



It's very difficult to accept weight gain when a diet was used as a way to justify overeating. The only reason people fee safe to eat excessively is because they assume a future diet will eventually fix all of the damages. To permanently accept gained weight to break the cycle between dieting and bingeing and dieting and bingeing, when you ONLY ate thinking that weight gain would be short term, would require you take responsibility for the damages that have been done...no blame, no delusions of victim hood, no hiding from the consequences.

BINGE EATING: IS YOUR WEIGHT REALLY WHAT'S UNHEALTHY?



When a belief about "health" puts you in a position to fear your own body, to fear food, and to be in constant triggered survival mode... isn't that belief what's unhealthy? Especially if it puts you in defense of eating and access to food when there isn't REAL famine? Consider the UNHEALTHY beliefs that position you to live in chronic fear. RECORDED AUGUST 2017

BINGE EATING: SURRENDERING YOUR WEIGHT TO GOD



She recognizes how the pressure to lose weight triggers binge eating. The feelings that food is going away increases the urge to eat or "feast" before dieting "famine." In order for her to recover from binge eating, she will need to surrender dieting and allow her body to heal itself. By never dieting again, she is forced to face how she eats to cope with emotional stress.

DOES YOUR EATING DISORDER GIVE YOU A SENSE OF BEING "SPECIAL"?



Sometimes having an ED gives you a sense of purpose, identity, and a sense of knowing what to do. To give that up would feel empty, purposeless, and as if you don't know who you are or what to do. She suffered from anorexia and bulimia for much of her adult life. She is struggling to surrender being thinner, but also letting go of the struggling between food, dieting, and the "purpose" she's received from her eating disorder. Without the crazy she feels bored.

ORTHOREXIA: EGO, SURVIVAL, AND THE HUMILITY TO FAIL IN UNHEALTH



She was raised in a very strict religion and was given praise for being thin, "perfect," and "smart." As she began to question the religion, her focus shifted from needing a religion to controlling her body. She worshiped dieting, controlling food, and the idea that being thinner was healthier. As she let go of her need to be thinner her urges to binge significantly reduced. However, she still held herself to concepts of "health" through food restrictions. This round of sessions we honed in on the beliefs of health to discuss the underlying fears she would need to face in order to fully recover. We discuss survival mode and the link to her ocd behaviors.
