What does Recovery mean to me?
Tuesday, April 02, 2013
Last few days I've been feeling more pressure not from anyone else but from within myself. Along with the added pressure I have been feeling I have also noticed my personal expectations of myself changed. Today I asked myself what does recovery mean to me. Recovery means to me that I have reconnected with my mind, body, and soul. It means I now have found tools/resources that I successfully use to bust (binge eating/comfort eating/emotional eating). That I have committed to being more active and incorporated weekly gym time and find try new or different exercises. That I am learning to fully love and accept my body and myself. That I believe I can and will overcome my eating disorder. I continue to work step by step day by day. I have learned to be honest and kind to myself. Also showing myself love, compassion, and understanding along each step of the way.
