Once i am more familiar with the recovery process and this website, and alltogether more comfortable with the idea of me in recovery, knowing that i haven't been healthy in abt 10 years, i know it will become easier, but for now i have some questions that i would love to be answered. Thank all of you in advance.
1. I know the theory of the set point weight and how recovery-weight gain or loss depends on where you are compared to that, but i would still love to know a range/numbers of how much most of you gained during recovery.
2. how long before your weight (again, i know how long theoretically) stabilised.
3. do you ever actually get to the point of not having the thoughts of: "it would just be so much easier if i purged"
4.and how do you stop your mind from automatically counting the calories you put on your plate. i seem to be uncapable to turn that off. it just happens. and i also have nightmares of me being extremely fat to the point of not being able to walk, and have gross images of me not fitting into clothes appearing in front of my eyes allll the time. how do you fight that?
again. Thank you so much for any answers you might be able to provide!
