Hi Liz,

I apologize for the late reply to your post. Congratulations for beginning on your recovery journey- that is something to be so proud of! Unfortunately I am unable to give any direct advice in terms of weight restoration and meal plans- as no one here is a medical professional. Are you currently working with a professional? I think that meeting with a dietitian would be a really great way to get all of these questions answered regarding what to be focusing on in terms of diet and exercise. How are you feeling in general about beginning the recovery process? I know it is scary, but I want to encourage you that recovery is possible. And there is always hope. <3 Please keep us posted on how you're doing. Know that we are always here to listen!
