You have been through some sort of recovery for Anorexia and/or Bulimia. Whether it was through one of the many great self-help books, online study, a therapist, or even a recovery center, you should be proud.
Healing from an eating disorder is a process and a practice. Eating Disorder relapse rates are over 60%, and you do not have to be a statistic. Just because you are eating regularly or have stopped the binge-purge cycle doesn’t mean you have necessarily been freed from the food prison.
You may even have a new fear about sliding backwards and disappointing everyone, including yourself. Secretly, you still are consumed by thoughts of gaining weight and all that means. No matter where you are at post-recovery, as your coach, I can help.
Our eating challenges fall on a continuum. According to Webster, the simple definition of a continuum is “a range or series of things that are slightly different from each other and that exist between two different possibilities.” Imagine that I am holding up a long string. There are many different points along the string between the two ends. Just because you are not at one end/extreme or the other, doesn’t mean you do not struggle.
Many will think if they are not suffering from a clinical eating disorder, such as Bulimia and Anorexia, or haven’t been diagnosed with Obesity and related health concerns, then there isn’t a problem. However, if your mind is consumed with thoughts of food, body, exercise, etc., then you certainly have a pain-point. The great news is that you do not have to live this way. No matter where you are at on the continuum, I will meet you there and help!
