Well done for the improvement you have made so far. It’s not surprising that you are having a few nagging ‘thoughts’. Remember that’s all they are. You can resist them and not act on them if you stay strong.

Thank you. I have come a long way and I feel better than how I used to be but now that the food is having an affect on me I just feel like I should eat less cause so much of those thoughts keep going through my mind. Ive been good with not giving in but its getting really hard.

This is a tough battle

don't be disheartened by not feeling good about your progress Ana is angry at your progress and is trying to ruin your recovery

keep on track and don't let Ana pursude you to take a wrong turning

Stay with your recovery plan

It really is a tough battle. Ana is very convincing right now but I will try my hardest to ignore her. Thank you so much for responding to this.

I admire your strength and clarity. You seem to know that ‘you’ are not the voice of Ana. And that you can resist the pressure not to eat nourishing food. Taking responsibility for this task is the key step in recovery. I wish you well. Xx

Thank you so much. I know that Ana doesnt speak for me and I know that she seems like she was good for me but what I keep remembering is that she hurt me more than she helped me and she is just too toxic for me.

You sound like a true fighter! It’s great to hear. Sadly, my granddaughter is far back in her relationship with Ana. I’d love to know what’s helped you most in tackling her toxic messages.
