depends. if all the stuff saying " YoU HaVe tO gAiN To ReCoVeR" Is true, then, Fuck no.

 

If my recovery meant I could roughly maintain this weight and suddenly not care about the exact number or not obsess over fat on my body or any little thing with food and , then yes. I would. 

 

I guess that means im not ready to recover eh? lol 

 

I guess the answer is no then. just a hard no.

 

Kinda sad but at least im being honest with myself. Thats progress at least

No. I think at this point it's like Stockholm syndrome with my ED, if that makes sense.

Can I recover but without my face getting fat? Please?

 

But then what would I rely on instead if not an ED? I'd just find something else... something to control, something to distract me, something to give me purpose. Idk if just an ED recovery would be enough tbh


today at least you're you and, well, that's enough x

if it means that i actually do not care about my body, my face, my skin, the small details of my body, the big details of my body, the need to regulate something, and mostly, i didn’t need it as a coping mechanism, then yes. if it just means that i get fat, nah.

I'd love to instantly recover all lost or restricted flexibility and range of motion. So for me, I guess it depends what recovery means.


I was once told that you are what you eat and then I just cried and cried and cried cause no matter how much I wanted to be one I just couldn't bring myself to eating a skinny person.

No way

The process of recovering is what makes it worth it, not the end result

Maybe?

If I never have to think about food in a bad way, and I'm happy with how I look and making the most of my life... well, that would be a fresh air. 

 

As long as I was completely free of ED and anything related, then I guess so.

 

I just don't really know how I am without my ED being a part of my life.

YES. I'm maintaining at my set weight due to severe binging and restricting and I just want to feel normal again since I look it anyways.
