Full Recovery From an Eating Disorder is Possible

Full recovery from an eating disorder is possible..png

Today marks the beginning of National Eating Disorders Awareness Week and the theme this year is “let’s get real”.
So let’s get real for a minute. I used to believe I would never recover from my eating disorder. I thought it was possible for everyone else except for me and that I would never truly be free from the thoughts that consumed me. I wasn’t sure I would ever be “normal”. But with a lot of support and persistence, I achieved full recovery. Unfortunately, way too many of my peers either lost their fight or continue to struggle or live in quasi recovery.
This is why I don’t stay silent about eating disorders. Because I know how debilitating and deadly they can be and I also know that full recovery from an eating disorder is possible for everyone. You don’t need to settle for “recovered enough”. You can live a life free of negative thoughts about your body and the foods you eat. Food can become just a small part of your life. Don’t settle. There’s so much more to you than this chapter in your life.
