Recovery

The inner voices of anorexia and bulimia whisper that you’ll never be happy until you lose weight, that your worth is measured by how you look. But the truth is that happiness and self-esteem come from loving yourself for who you truly are and that’s only possible with recovery. And while it may seem like there’s no escape from your eating disorder, recovery is within your reach. With treatment, support, and these self-help strategies, you can overcome your eating disorder and gain true self-confidence.

What you can do:

  1.  Admit you have a problem
  2. Reach out for support
  3. Assemble a treatment team
  4. Learn to cope with uncomfortable feelings
  5. Learn to love and accept yourself as you are
  6. Take steps to prevent relapse
  7. Learn more by reading related articles

True recovery from eating disorders involves learning to:

  • Listen to your feelings.
  • Listen to your body.
  • Accept yourself.
  • Love yourself.

This may seem like a lot to tackle, but just remember that you’re not alone. Help for eating disorders is out there; all you have to do is ask!
