Remember, this is a process

Recovery or as i like to call it being "Healed" is a process. As much as i hate to say this, i know it is speaking my truth. Before i was healed and really wanted to be healed, i still would give in to my urges, for a million different reasons. I constantly gave myself permission to to b/p. As so many of you know the of importance of structured eating , distraction, journaling and loving self, the one most important key is to forbid yourself from the purge. The binge will still be a problem for a while, but i believe focusing on not giving into the purge is critical. It brings such gratification when you don't give in. By practicing this, eventually the urge to purge will subside, i promise, it just takes a lot of mindfulness. Working on too many steps at one time can be over-whelming for some. This was key to my wellness and ability to heal myself for life.

Wishing you all focus on life and less focus on food:)
