Anonymous: I'm chubby and I don't mind that, but I have put on weight now. And I still don't really mind how I look, but it doesn't feel very comfortable. I can't go to the gym or go running because of health problems. Oh and I'm vegan. Do you have any tips how to lose some fat? :3

I think your mindset right now is beautiful and I completely understand! I think you should look into 801010. You don’t have to eat less to weigh less, you just have to eat more fruits! Even if you just make one meal entirely from fruit, you will start noticing a difference in your body and energy. Also make sure you’re drinking enough water and getting proper sleep!

You know you’re a monkey when your friend sees a banana tote and thinks of you 💛🍌🍌🍌 #iwouldhoardmynanasinthis @megan_geraghty
Anonymous: What is the sleeping thing you take?

Sleeping thing? I use to take a vitamin b complex to help me sleep, but I don’t have to take it anymore!

Anonymous: why do people push away people that care about them? and why must they make up problems that arent even there in the first place when it comes to friendships

I don’t know what you’re going through, but I can tell you that when I’m going through something difficult, I tend to push my friends away so that I can hide from my problems. Maybe your friend is hiding from something. You could try and talk about it, but just remember that it’s not your problem and ultimately you need to focus on your own well being xo

Anonymous: I know that wanting to die isnt the best thing and neither is hurting myself but my friend basically told me that i wont be "normal" until i get help and thats hard and i just dont know what to say to her anymore

To me, “normal” is just going through life doing what you need to do to survive. Hurting yourself and feeling suicidal is not surviving; it will kill you!
It sounds like your friend cares about you and wants to see you get better. Receiving help is not a sign of weakness and it is nothing to be ashamed of. Mental illnesses are just as serious as any major physical illness/injury. If your kidneys exploded, would you refuse to go to the hospital?
I think you would really benefit from seeing a counselor. You have nothing to loose except these horrible thoughts!

4 hours of pain for 5 minutes of beauty 🗻💙 #hiking
This way by far the hardest climb I’ve yet to do, but the view from the top was worth it. 8 miles of hell well spent! #hiking #climbing
Anonymous: I'm in the exact same place i was last year and i feel like i'm wasting my life

Nothing is a waste of time! Everything happens for a reason, remember that.

I spent an entire year hiding in my bed, crying for time to pass, but also for it to stand still. I wanted to change so badly, yet I didn’t believe I could, so I didn’t. I had no idea who I was or what the hell I was doing. It was the scariest year of my life, but I am so extremely grateful for that time because it brought me to where I am today. It wasn’t until I BELIEVED that I could change that I actually did. I went out of my comfort zone in small steps. At first it was a struggle to even get out in public, but eventually I was hanging out with my friends, making new friends and having fun. Because of that time, I no longer take my life for granted because I got so close to having it taken away from me. Even if I spend all day watching tv in bed, it’s still a good day because I’m not living in fear that tomorrow won’t exist. Life is such a beautiful privilege, so go out and feed the birds, dance in the rain, dye your hair and write a book. Stop with the excuses and go out and live! I believe in you; now believe in yourself xoxoxo

Anonymous: Hi Jen! Firstly, you have such a great body, I can tell you take great care of it! I am getting more into fitness lately, I love running and yoga, I hope to start biking soon too. I really want to tone up my body but I hatteeee weight lifting-gym workouts. Unfortunately, people I talk to all tell me I cant see results without weights. So what do you think? Can I do the workouts I enjoy and still see results??

I don’t remember the last time I picked up weights! Haha. Working out is supposed to be fun!! I swear to you, my favorite workout is laughing my brains out. My abs get so sore the next day! Do what makes you happy and don’t worry about what other people say :) xoxo

Anonymous: Do you ever have a day when you eat a lot and afterward feel really fat? I've just had one of those days and I don't know what to do to fix it! It makes me feel terrible about myself when I bough I was making a lot of progress in my recovery but this makes me want to go back into my cycle of not eating! Do you have any suggestions? Btw feel better!

There are always days when I eat a lot more than usual! That’s completely acceptable. You need to trust that one day of eating more won’t make the slightest difference on your body the next day.
-Drink water or warm tea to settle your tummy and help digestion
-Give yourself a massage on your tummy and all over with lotion or oil
-Light a candle and relax
-Maybe go for a brisk walk for HEALTHY reasons (to distress, not burn cals)
