🛑 Being at a "healthy weight" does not mean you have no right to reach out for help to heal your relationship with food and your body.
🛑 Being able to eat your fear food does not discount your need for support to grow into your new identity when you still feel sh*t AF.
🛑 Being at a refeed phase where you are restoring your weight does not mean you are fully done with recovery.
I am saying this from a place of compassion, where I have been through it all before too.
🙅🏻♀️ Physically, I looked like "I didn't need anymore help" when I first stepped into the discombobulated world of recovery.
Inside I was always beating myself up.
I hated how I looked.
I was secretly restricting food intake and then punishing myself with more exercise when I felt like I had eaten "too much" or some "nono food".
It was doubly harder to admit at that time that I had an eating disorder because outward appearance said otherwise. 😅
I felt even more sh*t. I felt like I had completely let go of a physical appearance that I had previously found comforting, for an ugly me that was doing my head in.
I kept running away.
