positive post.

I am taking steps in recovery. I realized I am lucky to have my treatment team who totally back me and not everyone has that and they are wonderful and really want me to get better. I need to utilize them more and for who they are like my therapist is wonderful and like my whole team is just great. I have been following my meal plan and trashed my scale which is enabling me to follow my meal plan because I can't see the number. I have been journaling everyday and my therapy appointments have been going well and i gained a little so my nutritionist was happy though I still have more to go but I am taking the right steps. I am pulling myself out of this hole i dug and not going to give in and go inpatient. I am moving into a new apartment and I don't want to lose that at all and my job I have been at for 3 years in December i was out a few weeks for treatment since there but nothing big so still working. I love my job and I have watched the kids I have been with since they were 1 now they are 2 going on 3 I don't want to miss them growing up more. I have to fight so doing the work. Just thought I would share a positive post for once struggling but doing it the best I can.

Hey, that sounds like some really great progress. Scary but necessary. I am proud of you. You will do amazing things with your life as you are already doing without being controlled by the eating disorder. Good for you for trashing the scale. That was a huge statement and accomplishment. I am really glad to hear you have such a supportive team. Take care and don't let fear stop you.

Thank you for your support.

Thank you for your support. it is a hard time of year but I am trying to keep the momentum going of throwing out my scale. I have been following my meal plan ever since and I am scared but am doing it. My team really is supportive and they want what is best for me and they have wise words and kind words for me. I am working hard and putting in more effort than i really ever have. i have never been in recovery really just ok points or just restoration of weight caused by meds for one not even eating. following my meal plan is hard knowing i will gain but i won't know the number and that is freeing and better for me. I have to fight for my life health wise my doctor said this weight is not healthy for me and my nutritionist feels the same way and i need to gain my therapist agrees with the rest of my team and my psychiatrist its nice they are all on the same page. it is helpful. this is difficult but trying to fight and believe it is worth it.

You have been making so much progress recently & that has been obvious! So proud of you for taking such scary but courageous steps forward :) Trashing the scale has been so crucial for igniting that progress. It's amazing you have been journaling regularly and have such wonderful support in your treatment team. I'm excited to see how you continue to grow! It's amazing to see you fight to overcome ED. You should be so proud of yourself <3

I totally agree. You need to celebrate. Celebrate you. Celebrate the steps you've taken. Even if you are scared and it is difficult, YOU are still doing it. I am also proud of you. You can do this. You have determination, the willingness, the desire and a great team. And I in no way say it is easy. This is fighting for your life. I think we all know how difficult a journey is but we all experience it differently. God bless you and may He continue to help you on this journey.

With love, iwanttolive
