Feel your feet hit the ground and touch the earth.
And remember, you are no failure, no wrong-doer, no judge.
You are a person.
A person whose body deserves acceptance kindness, and thanks.
A person who deserves to wear whatever you like and participate in whatever activities make you feel alive.
A person who deserves to nourish your needs, wants and wishes.
A person who deserves to smile at yourself.
A person who deserves compassion, care, respect and love.
Because no matter what the voices or messages may say.
The scale is no barometer, no measure of any, any of that.
First, woohoo, congratulations on what has been a hard and long journey to get back to where you are now. That is a great thing.
I can hear both sides. Your parents are worried and fearful that you might slip back and you are frustrated and anxious to prove that you have achieved health. It’s time to have a really good talk between you or if you feel you can’t get your medical support team to do it. Part of later recovery is learning to own and care for yourself. Get your own foods, be responsible for the amount and what you eat and learn to stay stable and healthy yourself. Your parents don’t have to let go completely, but gradually and it is the best outcome for you too. So you don’t feel suddenly you have it all on yourself. Start with one meal and snack a day that is totally your responsibility. Then when you feel comfortable with that, move on etc. As long as your weight stays stable and you are eating a wide range of foods there is no need for your parents to keep picking at you. Hope this helps and answers your question.
You can read my other replies about this. Bloating is normal and routine and isn’t really the final indicator. It depends individually for each person. Some bloat straight away with refeeding, others take a while for bloat to happen. Again the bloating is normal, it isn’t a BAD thing. In the scheme of things, a bit of bloating as opposed to being very sick or dying - it’s not such a big thing really.
Thre is nothing wrong. It is normal as they body starts to work properly for a period to be missed. Don’t worry. See how you go next month.
