The honest truth.

Hey girls...

I'm back in Connecticut, and I wish I could say that it was an uneventful journey...but it really wasn't. My mom and I had a very tear jerking conversation, in which I discovered a few things.
1. I want to recover for myself, but also for my family. They deserve better.
2. I am obsessed with food. I think about it all the time, I talk about it, I watch it (food network), I read about it (blogs, recipe books, magazines), and I even LEARN about it in my nutrition classes.
3. I have an addictive personality.

So this is going to be the end of this blog for awhile. Not just this blog, but the end of me reading all of your girls blogs. I've debated this NUMEROUS amounts of times, but this time I'm going through with it. Don't take it personally, please! Because every single one of you are so so special, and SO deserve recovery....whichever way works for you! I just spend so much of my life on here, reading and comparing and I just can't do it anymore! I need to separate myself from food..and just live. But as most of you know, I have my facebook link in my profile (I think?!) If not, my name is Laura Carr and I go to UConn! Feel free to add me, just mention that you're from the blog <3

Good luck girls..with everything. Stay in touch, via facebook or ANYTHING! You're all too special to not be in my life!


  1. Good luck Laura <3 I think this is a really courageous and sensible decision. I hope everything works out for you :)

  2. hi girlie
    i completely understand where you are coming from and understand and respect your decision. I think we all have to do whats right for us to recover, and if the blogging world is not helping wit the comparing etc, then its not worth it. do what you need to do to get better hun! il miss your posts and comments of course, but all i want to see is a healthy, happy laura,free of ed :)

    i wish you all the best, your a great friend, and il definetly be keeping in touch with you over face book!
    love you lots hun,

  3. Hey Laura ~ just wanted to let you know that you will be missed. You are every bit as special, inspiring, kind and wonderful as you say everyone else is - I hope you can recognize that. Definitely have to stay in touch via facebook! I hope that taking a break from blog-world is the breaht of fresh air that you need to help you find yourself again. If you ever need anything, feel free to message me. Storrs really isnt *that* far away, so know that at least somewhere there's someone in the same state who believes in you.
    xo and best of luck

  4. Laura girl..I totally know how you feel..It is so easy to get obsessed with blogging and food..and nutrition..and it's def. hard to get away from the blog world sometimes..I'll miss your posts girl, but you seem like such an amazing person! I know you will recover, and I will be hitting you up on facebook fo sho!

  17. =(

    Majorly sad! But, I absolutely understand, and I think you're making the right decision! The most important reason for having a blog like this in the first place is to HELP in your recovery, and get support, but if you feel like it's just hampering your progress then you should definitely take a break for a while!

    I'm REALLY going to miss your posts though! In the short while that I've had my blog I've really really loved reading yours! You're an amazing person, I hope that this change gives you that push you need to go further in recovery and leave your obsession with food behind!

    Take care, love you girl!

  18. good luck Laura- I think this is a really big and important step for you to 1) recognise, and 2) take. I hope it works well for you- see you on FB!

  19. I'm doing something similar...congratulations to you for deciding to do what's bst for you!

  20. Long time lurker ;-) just thought I would de-lurk, to say it sounds like you are making the best decision for YOU! That is great - I completely understand - I love your blog - and will miss it, but best of luck for recovery! Also enjoy your new uni major!

  21. You probably won't read this, but I'm really happy that you're doing the right thing for your recovery. I'm leaving blogging too, and I already know it's going to take a lot of pressure about food away. I know doing this will make you even more amazing that you are already! Much love xxx
