How are you doing in this time of uncertainty during the Corona Virus (Covid-19) Pandemic? If you’re having a hard time with food and body image or with your eating disorder recovery, you are most definitely not alone.
Your eating disorder is valid even if you don’t have dramatic before and after pictures.
Your eating disorder is valid even if you didn’t lose weight.
Your eating disorder is valid even if no one noticed you were struggling.
Your eating disorder is valid if you recovered into a fat body.
If you feel like you failed eating disorder treatment, but know that what actually failed you was a treatment program designed fundamentally for a young, well off, white, able bodied, thin woman, I see you.
If You’re Mentally Planning Your Evening Snack While Eating Dinner, it Might Mean You’re Not Satisfied
Have you ever been planning out your next meal while you’re in the middle of a current one?
Have you ever had judgments about that? “Why am I always thinking about food?” “Am I addicted to food?” “Is there something wrong with me?”
Had an episode of binge eating?
Take care of yourself post-binge. Drink some soothing tea, take a gentle walk or do some stretching, journal or call a friend to talk about how you’re feeling.
Almost to the end of your January cleanse and already planning your binge for February 1st? Probably time to plan a different approach to healing your relationship with food.
