Tabitha Farrar

The information on this site, however, is also helpful for parents of sufferers of any age, spouse or partners of adult sufferers, and friends/loved ones because it will help you understand what an eating disorder really is and how it affects the sufferers behaviour.

If you come away from this site knowing one thing, I want you to understand that eating disorders are genetically based mental illnesses. They are not a choice. They are not “caused by society” (although they are complicated and aggravated by society in a very serious way). They are not caused by bad parents or a “need for control.”

This is the one blog out of the hundreds I followed that convinced me to start active recovery, instead of just planning it ‘one day’. It was an absolute lifechanger, and I honestly believe I would never have fully embraced recovery without Tabitha.

Incredible resource

13/04/2018

Tabitha’s website has been such an incredible resource for my husband and myself as our daughter works through her recovery. The podcasts, blogposts and several skype sessions with Tabitha have provided immeasurable information, guidance and support. This is a full-service, on-line resource center, full of science-based and heartfelt information. I really can’t put into words my appreciation for what Tabitha provides.

Gold

Tabitha is recovery GOLD. When I first came across her blog, I was underweight and in the grip of anorexia, desperate and confused. But it was like Tabitha had looked inside my head and told me exactly the things I wanted (and needed) to hear in order to recover. She gave me the courage to give recovery a shot, and gave me the tools I needed to continue with it, and reassure myself that I was doing the right thing. I would NEVER be where I am today without Tabitha- recovered, and blissfully anorexia-free. I cannot recommend her enough.

I am not sure I can find enough superlatives to express the vital importance, and the unmatched breadth and quality, of what Tabitha has made available for sufferers of eating disorders and their families. Tabitha is so prolific in covering the myriads of ways that EDs wreak havoc, and most importantly in expanding our understanding and providing tangible ways to move through recovery to reclaim wellness. She is genuine, courageous, candid, funny, persistent, brilliant and committed to using her own experience, and tapping into the most current and relevant science, evidence and personal stories out there, to help sufferers become liberated and fully recovered. Thank you Tabitha, for each and every podcast and blog post, it is making such a difference!

Thank you

So, I’m lying here in bed, and I am CERTAIN that now you do so much outreach work, you will receive hundreds of emails every week. But even if you don’t have the time to read this, it really helped me to write to you instead of focusing on not going on that run… And maybe if I get back in touch in August, I’ll be able to join you all in the slack community! And if you do get a chance to read this, further down the line – THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING YOU’RE DOING YOU’RE SUPER GREAT!!

I can eat

21/03/2018

Thank you for helping me to see what I could not see Thank you for teaching me I can eat, I can breathe, and I can live free. Thank you for teaching me how to walk again in life and instead of being afraid and playing it small. Thank you for being there and guiding me. Today I realized very very slowly and didn’t quite realize it until we were talking that I went through the day without ED bugging me even with the stress I was able to go talk and be present. I was able to sit and be. That is amazing. Thank you it is a gift what you are doing. You have given me a gift..you have helped me get my life back or give me the life I was too afraid to live. Xx

Thank you

I’ve been meaning to write and say thank you for your blog for over a year now (!!) I came across Love Fat back when you had recently published the book, and were just writing blog posts intermittently. I loved your style and felt a real affinity with what you were writing and how down to earth you were… I read back through all your posts, and wished that there were double as many!! When I found out that you were starting a podcast I was delighted, and listened to every episode as soon as it came out. I’m in the UK, and [not to stereotype but the general style of lots of US podcasts is a little less grounded (?)] it’s super refreshing to hear your voice / you really make me smile every time you’re super blunt and just say things how they are, no sugar coating… 😉

Thank you for getting this heart to beat

Tabitha–I could say you helped me through the semester, through the exams, through the year–but that’d be a shallow effort. Thank you for getting this heart to beat. Nothing matters unless my mouth is full. You’ve changed everything for me. Every thing.

I just wanted to let you how much of a difference what you have done has contributed to my recovery so far and it has prevented me from relapsing several times. I am sure other people going through the same situation would also find it helpful. So thank you agin for providing all these resources, I think it is inspiring how you have used your experiences to make such a posive difference to people affected by eating disorders (:
