Eating disorders are about so much more than physical appearance or a desire to lose weight. They are about fear, feelings of inadequacy, crippling anxiety, and an overpowering voice in your head constantly telling you you're not good enough.

By Ashley Martin, 2016 Remuda Alumna

“You are a liar. You tell me I am worthless, and unworthy. You say I am not worth fighting for. You tell me I am undesirable and unpleasant. According to you, I am ugly and overweight, incapable and broken.

Trauma Can Lead to Eating Disorders

Heather was raped when was she was a young adult. Her feelings of fear, rage, and powerlessness that followed became overwhelming and unmanageable. Initially, the stress she felt robbed her of her appetite; but, eventually, she began restricting her eating by choice. It gave her a sense of power over her body.

Mentors Helped Me Learn to Love My Body

By Sara Goniea, Remuda Alumna

Once, I wanted to vanish. My body was a vessel to be tamed, broken, tortured, ignored, and forced into submission. I conveniently forgot that without it I didn't exist; frankly, at that point, I often wished I didn't exist.

Choose to Love Your Body

By Kelsea Rausch, 2006 Remuda Alumna

Goodbye, ED

By Hayley Rambo, 2016 Remuda Ranch Alumna

Dear ED,

For years, you held me under the delusion that if I put my trust in you, you would make me invincible.

by Moriah Hvizdak

How can you accept your outsides if you hate the person inside? How can you care for the shell if you don’t care for the core first? This was my dilemma for so long. Slowly destroying my body as I turned my rage inward.

By Kelly Biese, 2007 Remuda Ranch Alumna

I will never forget October 11, 2007, as I stood in front of the security gates at the Dayton airport. I was so angry with God. Part of me wanted to turn and run back, afraid that I'd never return to see my friends, and another part of me still believed I didn't have a problem and would be sent back home when I got to Remuda Ranch. I was just so tired of fighting and tired of being tired.
