Special thanks to my anorexia for introducing me to the most brilliant souls throughout my journey.
Featured here are individuals that have impacted my recovery by choosing their own.
My name is Meghan Blackwood, and in 2015, I lost 130 lbs in 9 months. Yes, you read that correctly. Half of my body weight diminished into thin air, along with all of my sanity. One- hundred and thirty pounds. #BodyGoals, right? Wrong.
Recovery is something that was sort of thrust upon me. At 19, I’d run myself into the ground. Things were worse for me medically and mentally than ever and I chose treatment because I was scared. Not because I was ready.
Throughout all of my pre teens and teenage years, I struggled with body image. In fact, I recall standing in the mirror at about 10 years old, pinching the skin on my stomach and declaring that I was “fat.” I had no idea that negative thoughts..
Hey, I am Sarah (Katherine to some, SK to many, Sarah to most), and I am in recovery from an eating disorder. So what does that mean to you? If you don’t have an eating disorder, than that means that I am the girl on social media that occasionally whips out a selfie with some inspiration that you like.
Hi! I’m Cassi. I’ve lived with an eating disorder on and off for about half my life. I consider myself actively in recovery now. That looks different for everyone, but for me it means being intentional about healing my relationship with my body and food.

I don’t remember a time in my life when being thin wasn’t on my mind. Most of my memorable moments as a teenage girl were bogged down by the obsession with food and physique. All the major events like school dances and graduations were filled with shame and suffering.
