I legit do not give a fuck about my weight at all today. I can feel my thighs touching as I sit, but thighs just sometimes do that, y'know? My eating today will not interact with fat thoughts.

When you actually leave some food on your plate because you already ate enough and you feel satisfied. And then you can feel hunger,so you know when to eat again and what to eat - because you're not depriving yourself of anything-if you feel like it's that mac&cheese kind of day,you just go for it.

When your response to a very bad body image day is not to restrict or resort to any other behaviours, 'cause you know it does shit all and you'll be back to where you started. Instead, you continue to eat normally, and make plans where you'll be safe and distracted. --> coping skills ftw

When you make literally whatever for lunch because you're hungry and you're not freaking out about not having the healthiest meal ever.

Congratulations! Very well deserved!

This. This is how you know you've come a huge way. You see this in the supermarket, and don't buy it.

NOT because of its calorie content
NOT because you're worried you'd start binging on it
NOT because you're worried of what people will think of you eating chocolate.

Image

BUT because it looks disgusting. Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww. Vegemite and chocolate?

Apologies to anyone who wants to try it

^^^ I AM LITERALLY EATING THAT RIGHT NOW.

And it's weirdly good. I don't even really like vegemite, but somehow it works. Like super salty, intense caramel. Odd...

When you think about meeting your new colleagues and you're not freaking about about how many of them may be skinnier than you.

When you look back on your journal entries (offline, not my journal on here) and can see how much positive growth you've achieved in recovery.

When you're leaving your current job to take up the role of your dreams, which feels incredible because there was a time when you thought the most likely thing you'd be leaving your job for would be to end up in residential treatment!

When you realize you've made peace with things you thought you'd never forgive yourself for.

You get a million of ed-related books at the library but then realize they will only trigger you and you step back,take something else and actually enjoy something that's not about weight/body/food/calories etc.

I thought to myself just now: I love and respect my body. My weight restored body. I am grateful.

When you are struggling with body image but put on a bathing suit anyway to play at the water park with your niece because your niece is far more important.

When you're told you shouldn't exercise for a few days and don't freak out about it!
