Michelle recovered from her eating disorder as far as the doctors were concerned…but she was still not where she wanted to be. Food was still taking up way too much space in her head, she still deemed certain foods “good” and others “bad,” and body image was still a constant struggle. Even though she was no longer “formally” engaging in her old eating disorder behaviors, she dealt with much residual food guilt and stress around food and her body. Michelle shares how she went from partially recovered “surviving” to fully recovered “thriving” in life after having an eating disorder.

In this video, Lizzie shares how she was able to go from feeling constant panic around food to feeling peaceful and in control around food. “I feel like a whole new person, it’s like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders,” Lizzie shares.
