EATING DISORDER RECOVERY TIPS

Get rid of the scale!!!

You are not defined by the number on the scale. You are much more than that. I understand if you are trying to lose weight for health reasons, but you dont need to do it unhealthily.

Find someone you can talk to.

Having someone to talk to really helps me to know that I’m not alone. By the way, if anyone needs to talk, I’m here. You can email me at

Reach out for help!!

You want to nip an ED in the butt before it destroys you. I know an ED is all about control, but you want to take control of it before it takes control of you. I’ve been dealing with an ED for the last 17 years.

Join a support group.

I’m still learning to accept these tips myself, and I know there will be days when I struggle, but we all can overcome this. You are beautiful just the way you are. I believe in you. From no one else does, just remember my blog and that I believe in you. Stay strong and keep fighting no matter how hard it gets. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I just felt like someone needed to hear that. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

  1. i love this list so much. also, my favorite recovery mantra is that “you were whole to begin with. you were not born loathing this body or this life, and you do not have to die that way either. you can feel whole again.” recovery is possible, my friend. keep on keeping on. i’m so glad i found your blog and your post. i’m right here fighting too. 💙

  2. I’ve been dealing with the scale since I was in the third grade. It’s so sad that many of us, me included, let this run our lives. I don’t even own one anymore, the anxiety of just knowing it was there! I think support groups are great tip. From experience, I know from just having one person sorta understand what you are going through (I say sorta because I believe everyone’s is different), is enough to to calm your mind on fighting alone.
