After I graduated from treatment for my anorexia, I kinda just went back to a version of the “normal” I had before my ED, which isn’t bad but I don’t feel super great about it either. I’m basically eating whatever I feel like whenever I feel like it, which maybe is true “food freedom” and what I said I wanted to reach when I was still in treatment, but now I have the biggest body that I’ve had in my life, which has been making me really self-conscious lately. Whenever I think about slipping back into old behaviors, I just try to ignore it and keep eating “normally” but I don’t know whether maybe the voices in my head are right and I shouldn’t be eating this or that or so often.

      Sometimes in the moment I have a hard time trying to just swallow my food because I find it so hard to eat sometimes. But making a set time of when u eat each meal along with having diverse options helps a lot! I’ve been trying new foods that I’ve never even heard of and it’s started to spark a sense of hunger in me.

      your body has been struggling for so long, and giving your body the food it wants is so important. mental hunger is real, and fueling your body is so important:)

      It's important to eat healthy, but it's even more important to listen to your body and give it what it needs. It's ok if you don't feel 100% happy with your body yet, recovery is a long and bumpy road
