Purging  harm reduction for us mia girls (and boys n enbies ofc) - copy and pasted from MPA with some tips of my own
Okay, to dispel some of the harmful “Pro-Eating Disorder” tips, I’m going to share a list of safety tips. Mainly since I know if I ask you to quit doing what you are, it will fall on closed ears.
1a. Somebody just messaged me with this, thank you to that person, this is a huge risk and very important!! vocal cord dysfunction, its fucking terrifying, i thought i was dying when it started happening to me. i've never purged, but my stomach sphincter is weak and stomach acid leaks into my throat daily. it burns my vocal cords, giving me VCD. it can happen to anyone who commonly has stomach acid coming in contact w/ the vocal cords. the sensation of VCD is similar to being strangled. the extreme constriction of the throat is terrifying. Laryngospasm is the worst form of VCD. were NO AIR gets through the vocal cords. you are literally choking at this point. you can help reduce the risk of developing VCD by drinking, eating or taking something to neutralize the acid in the throat. pepto bismol is honestly best for this, but milk or creamer also can work if you dont have it i really dont want people to have this happen to them and freak out because of it, since there is literally nothing you can do when it happens but stay calm and focus on doing breathing exercises but when you suddenly feel like your being strangled and your making a noise you've never made before, its really fucking hard to stay calm
1b. @strwbrrypoundcake reblogged with this and i thought it’s important to add: flushing" is horrible. Do not drink water in between to get it out. It dehydrates you even more and is not worth it.
Pro Anorexic sites say, to purge, you "Tie a small candy to a string, and swallow it, then pull it up and you can purge" THIS IS NOT TRUE: - What if it goes down the wrong hole? - You will choke. - It doesn’t work. At all. Don’t try. - According to a study, those who came into the emergency room for choking, a portion of them tried this method. It didn’t work and two people died.
DO NOT USE: - Spoons, Toothbrushes etc. Choking is prominent.
WASH YOUR HANDS RIGHT AFTER. The stomach acid will burn and damage you’re hands.
After you purge. Have an electrolyte replacing drink. Hydrolyte, Gatorade, Powerade, etc. You don’t want to have a heart attack. A girl in America, after being bulimic for only 6 months, was normal weight and died from a heart attack.
If you purge a tablespoon of blood, that’s enough to go to the ER.
Don’t use ipecac syrup. That stuff is death in a bottle! Seriously, they don’t even use it for poisoning anymore because so many people have died after taking it.
If you do purge regularly it is worth asking your doctor from time to time to have your blood electrolyte levels checked.
If you must purge, use a saline rinse and wash out your sinus cavities. Stomach acid and food particles can make it up into these areas and cause serious infections, chronic breathing problems, etc.
If you’re purging via laxative abuse: - 2 full glasses of prune juice is as effective as pills and is kinder to your body. - Eat things like grapes, oranges, cabbage to help the difficult process of weaning yourself off of laxatives. - Drink plenty of water. And do NOT be an idiot and take both lax and water pills, or you’re going to seriously dehydrate yourself and pass out.
If you feel dizzy or lightheaded stop immediately.
If you repeatedly blackout during/after purging, take a break for a few days if possible.
If you heart flutters during, stop immediately.
If you lose sensation in your legs and feet stop immediately.
After a purge, dissolve baking SODA in warm water. Gargle it, rinse your mouth, etc. Wait about 20mins then brush your teeth.
Do NOT brush your teeth right after a purge. It’ll actually rub the stomach acid into the enamel!!!
Helpful things: -avoiding acidic foods -avoiding spicy foods -drinking LOTS of water -avoiding soda and other carbonated drinks -avoiding or limiting caffeine consumption 
my own things to remember: 
make sure theres at least one person you know irl who knows in some capacity about ur ed in case something goes wrong and you need someone to talk to doctors for you
avoid purging things you’ve heard are hard to get up as they can be a choking hazard! these include bread, peanut butter and thick oatmeal.
DRINK WATER!!! lots and lots of water, before, during after
if you cant purge, up your cals for a few days if ur restricting, take a week long break or whatever, if you still cant, go to the doctor, something might be wrong
my biggest tip of all:
DONT PURGE!!! if you can help it
if theres any chance of recovery, recover! im just posting this because bulimia is a illness and not everyone has the chance to get better

I did it, I fucking did it. I finally hit my ultimate goal weight. 95 pounds.
It took around 2 years to lose 60 pounds but I did it. I'm actually shaking, I never thought if do it? It's such a weird feeling I don't know what to do now? I've been so blinded to everything in my life driving myself to this point.

Ever notice how skinny ppl can just... Do stuff?
They can eat.
They can be cringy.
They can have weird fashion.
They can make unfunny jokes.
They can talk all the time or not at all.
Skinny ppl can't be perceived as weird or gross...

Hello my darlings, 
                I did my research this week (virgo things) and here is a list of the following foods which speed up your metabolism (helping you lose weight easier). Also is a list of foods which slow your metabolism down (making it harder to lose weight).  -cheers- (˘ ³˘)
 Avocado, Tempeh, Chili pepper, Beans, Whole grains, Eggs, Broccoli, Low fat cottage cheese, Almonds. 
Refined carbs/grains, any sugar not naturally occuring in the food, alcohol, granola, soybean oil, inorganic meats, white flour, canola/vegetable oil, inorganic apples (apples can be super good for you but they have to be organic, not sprayed with pestecides), butter.

some of my safe foods and why <3
popcorn, you can get some that is only 170 for 4 cups and maybe even less and it's good
waffles & pancakes, can make them yourself and can get some for rlly
sandwiches, can help give you protein and are filling
popsicles, really low calorie depending on the kind and make ppl think you eat normal
rice cakes, i loved these even before i developed ana, they taste good and are lowcal
fruit and vegetables, usually low cal and healthy
gum, lowcal and good
baby food, as always it's lowcal and yummy
soup, it taste good and you get a lot for a little bit of calories
applesauce, comes in different flavors is lowcal and filling
if there is anything you'd like to add on go ahead Id love to listen and add to the list :)
