You are NOT a sketch, say NO to anorexia (and other eating disorders)!

YOU ARE NOT A SKETCH. Say NO to anorexia (eating disorders).

YOU ARE NOT A SKETCH. Say NO to anorexia (eating disorders).

Please take this poll – it is to show how common women or men participate in these behaviors. It is to try to show for those who may feel alone, they aren’t and also to show how society thinks on this part of the topic….

 

WARNING: THIS BLOG SECTION IS BASED ON EXPOSING THE SICK, TWISTED BLOGS THAT PROMOTE EATING DISORDERS – CONTAINS SENSITIVE/EXPLICIT MATERIAL… MAY BE TRIGGERING…

The first site I have come across is run by a girl who is using an anonymous name. She claims she is ONLY 17 YEARS OLD. She has posted numerous forms what she calls “Thinspiration”. This includes but is not limited to: pictures, links, diets, bracelets, info, “tips”, updates, news, and techniques. THEY ARE DETAILED AND DISTURBING. PLEASE REMEMBER I AM TRYING TO EDUCATE PEOPLE INTO REALIZING HOW FUCKED UP IT IS THAT WE ALLOW THIS AND  MAKE THESE SITES.  This whole thing is just sad, disturbing, and maddening all at once. DON’T start with any kind of eating disorder. It is NOT fun, NOT pretty, NOT healthy. You WILL LOSE ALL CONTROL AND STRENGTH. You WILL LOSE YOURSELF. It could KILL you. It is NOT worth it! Trust me, it left its fair share of scars… emotional and physical.  My skin, first broke out in acne and then dried out and flaked and peeled. My hair became greasy and thin… I bruised easily. I got sick a lot and was always cold. I became bloated and LOST MY PERIOD for 10 months. It was all due to my eating disorder. It destroyed me. PLEASE don’t let it destroy you. GET HELP and don’t strive for this.

She starts off with a disclaimer claiming she only wants to help.

She calls this her "Ana Boot Camp"

Here is where she tells us her age, that she is using a false name for privacy reasons, and some more of her info including her “ultimate goal weight” of 80lbs (she is using pounds instead of kgs, even though she claims she is from the UK).

80 lbs is NOT a healthy weight for someone who is 5 feet 5.5 inches...

The Red Bracelet Project is an alarming one. She claims anyone could wear it, not just those who want to be sick. Doesn’t seem true, sadly.

This "project" is doing more harm than good...

Some examples of what she is promoting – WARNING SOME OF THESE GIRLS ARE EXTREMELY SICK/THIN LOOKING… THIS IS NOT HEALTHY… THIS IS NOT WHAT WE SHOULD STRIVE TO ACHIEVE!!!

 

Celebrities she wishes to emulate:

NOTICE HOW THIS IS NOT HEALTHY AND SOME OF THE GIRLS LOOK LIKE THEY WERE IN A CONCENTRATION CAMP. THIS IS NOT WHAT WE SHOULD WANT TO URGE OTHER AND OURSELVES TO LOOK LIKE!

She even includes a little something about the late Karen Carpenter… she passed away from heart failure brought on by her anorexia.

Karen Carpenter passed away from heart failure that was a result of her anorexia. Her idea of "thinspo" is a woman who died from this terrible disease.

Notice the quote in the one picture – “Still hungry, I’m not” as well as the severely underweight girls.

Several of the girls in this post are severely underweight... notice the one quote "still hungry - I'm not"....

The next picture is quite disturbing… why is this allowed?! Or perhaps more important, why do we want to become this?

This is NOT healthy. This is NOT pretty. This IS sick. This SHOULDN'T be promoted!!

This is NOT healthy. This is NOT pretty. This IS sick. This SHOULDN’T be promoted!! Notice how the one girl’s waist is almost non-existent.

This next picture is also disturbing…

These girls look NEAR DEATH. Their skin is retaining water - a possible sign of kidney damage and/or FAILURE! These girls are SICK, NOT healthy. This is NOT what we should want to achieve!!

These next three photos are based on what she calls “ANA BOOT CAMP DIET”. It goes on to tell how little calories to eat and when to not eat at all. NOT HEALTHY!!

NOT HEALTHY!! DO NOT ATTEMPT!

NOT HEALTHY!! DO NOT ATTEMPT!

NOT HEALTHY!! DO NOT ATTEMPT!

NOT HEALTHY!! DO NOT ATTEMPT!

What she refers to as the “Commandments” – to not follow these = sin.

DISTURBING...

DISTURBING… LIES AND NOT HEALTHY – THIS WILL KILL YOU!

 

This next picture is just ridiculous. She goes on to say how based on your astrology sign, this is how you should feel about food…

Ridiculous!!

RIDICULOUS!!

 

This last picture is her “recipe” for an eating disorder. This is just sickening.

This is just sad. Why do we do this to ourselves?!?!?

This is just sad. Why do we do this to ourselves?!?!? You LOSE ALL STRENGTH AND CONTROL WITH AN EATING DISORDER!
