Sometimes allowing myself to eat a food type that I’ve denied myself for so long due to the eating disorder leads to such mixed emotions…
– Mourning for all those missed years of delicious eats!
– Elation at taking power back from the eating disorder and eating and enjoying foods such as this again.
– There can also be the anxiety, guilt, fear… and same old ED BS that kicks in too!
Still, the more delicious eating the better and the sooner the eating disordered thoughts and feelings will go from a roar to a whimper!
