Recovery is not (and never will be) a race.
A few months ago I made this post with wintry animals, but now it is summertime and here are some summer-loving animals checking in on you! be good to yourselves! :)
First it was questbars and yoga for everyone. And PB! That was the way to recover from an ED. The one and only way on tumblr.
Now it’s MM for everyone. The “true way” to recovery.
I’m recovered from the ED I had. And next month I’m getting discharge from the psychologist who helped me recover…
What would your 7 year old self say if she saw you politely refusing your favorite flavor of ice cream.
(Mint chocolate chip goes best with warm summer nights)
What would she think if she knew you drank coffee black.
(You use to tell your mom it tasted like gasoline)
(Your dad made pancakes every Sunday morning)
Ran until your lungs couldn’t take in oxygen fast enough.
(No one is chasing you anymore)
Counting every calorie.
(You never liked math)
What would she say if she saw you hating yourself .
- enjoying food
- feeling full
- eating more than someone else
- taking a second serving
- eating until you are full
- nourishing your body
- not liking a certain food
- eating a food for its taste, not its health benefit
- food in general
