Today I want to share something really important with you. Something that helped me SO much to make peace with my body and stop controlling it. Stop thinking like I can change my body, my weight or my eating.
We all know recovery from an eating disorder is super hard, very uncomfortable and requires us to face our biggest fears. In recovery, you might feel like your eating and weight are spiraling out of control, it makes you panic and often go back to restriction or relapse.
But all the scary symptoms of recovery – the weight gain, extreme hunger, bloating, water retention, feeling exhausted – are all healing symptoms! Your body is literally recovering from an eating disorder so of course, like with any other illness, recovering from it is not comfortable. But your body does all of that because it loves you so so much! This is how your body is designed to recover and there is nothing wrong with that!
The only thing that you need to change is your own mindset about your body. To stop fighting against your body and love your body back the same way your body has done it all along.
