Jennifer Kreatsoulas - Part 2
Let's go of the shame......that is such a burden to carry.
Millie Thomas Part 1
I kept telling myself; I need to give myself the chance to see what it's like on the other side. I need to see what it is like to fully live.
Millie Thomas Part 2
Don't give up ..... There is so much hope.
Yes I am in a larger body and that is just me. My body is not a problem, it is not a problem to be solved at all
Everybody has the opportunity to succeed, everyone has the opportunity to get well. Recovery is special but it’s not so special that you are excluded.
It's a sense of freedom you can't really describe unless you are there
It progressed...every year it got a little better...a little better...a little better and it definitely took longer than I thought!
Jenny is a former Coach of Recovered Living and is now in private practice.

Food just takes up this space in my life that is appropriate now. I don’t want to say it doesn’t take up any space because it does, but it’s part of self-care now.
Beware of someone who is recovered because they have a zest for life!
Carolyn Costin Part 1
It almost left as it came, I didn’t wake up with an eating disorder and I didn’t wake up recovered.
Carolyn Costin Part 2
You are not your thoughts and feelings. You are this awareness, this presence, that is aware of your thoughts and feelings.
I knew that if I could just fight the battle of recovery - as miserable as it was - then I could eventually get to the point of Recovered and have it be over.
If you are on the road to recovery, you are on the right path. You have everything to gain from doing that journey. You may fall down a lot and you just have got to get back up.
Life is so good on the other side and it's worth it. Go slow but stay steady. The steadiness is what is going to build the momentum
I have a deep deep respect for my body. There is almost a joy in the fact that this IS my body and this is how God designed my body to be.
It's possible...I'm proof! And there are so many of us out there that have recovered

When I first started recovery I didn't believe I could do it. Talking with people who had recovered helped me realize it was possible.
Anyone can get better. The ones who don't are the ones who give up.
I got frustrated and bored with using that as a mechanism of healing, because it wasn't working
