Stopping eating disorder behaviors is just the beginning of eating disorder recovery. Moving beyond your eating disorder way of life through psychological and emotional development is the path to your lasting recovery. Discovering and building on your genuine talents, gifts, and heartfelt desires become the process. Moving your eating disorder energy into life fulfilling tasks takes you to your fulfilled and satisfying life where you no longer need an eating disorder.
