Life after an eating disorder is not
only possible — it’s freeing.
Our philosophy around recovery is all about transforming your life from one of fear, anxiety, and rigidity to one of joy, peace, and freedom. Many people wonder how they will know they are recovered or what defines recovery. We resonate most with Carolyn Costin’s definition.
“Being recovered is when the person can accept their natural body size and shape and no longer has a self-destructive relationship with food or exercise. When you are recovered, food and weight take a proper perspective in your life, and what you weigh is not more important than who you are; in fact, actual numbers are of little or no importance at all. When recovered, you will not compromise your health or betray your soul to look a certain way, wear a certain size, or reach a certain number on the scale. When you are recovered, you do not use eating disorder behaviors to deal with, distract from, or cope with other problems.” —Carolyn Costin

She is willing to work with you on whatever you want and/or need. She can help you go clothes shopping, grocery shopping, eat meals/snacks together, clean out your closet, talk about whatever is going on in your life (food related or not), or do meaningful bookwork in The 8 Keys to Recovery from an Eating Disorder. One of my favorite things to do is exposures, which helps you gain real-world experience in a less stressful environment. I have always enjoyed our meals out together. She is so kind, patient, easy to talk to, and so understanding. Our meetings are always very beneficial. She offers real tools I can use and implement in my daily life supporting my recovery. One of the things I love most is how knowledgeable she is about eating disorder recovery and anti-diet culture. There is a lot to learn and unlearn about food and diet culture in recovery. I would not have gotten to where I am without Brandy!
