Top 8 Benefits of Gaining Weight in Ed Recovery

January 15, 2020

Gaining weight is by far the #1 thing that scares people about recovery. 

 

I myself resisted recovery for many years because I could not come to terms with seeing my body change and "losing" my "athletic" body. I would come up with a mired of (unrealistic) awful things that would happen to me when I lost my thigh gap. 

 

I put my thoughts BEFORE gaining weight next to my thoughts/the reality of what happened AFTER I gained weight in the table below. 

 None of my previous fears of what weight gain would do to me came true. In fact I found that there were so many benefits to weight gain that I was very frustrated that I did not take the plunge and gain weight sooner. 

 

I put together the top 8 benefits that I experienced after gaining weight. 

 

*Note: I did not just gain 5 lbs. Throughout my whole eating disorder journey, from my lowest to highest, I gained 50 lbs. I had a huge change in my body size and shape that needed up being a huge blessing. All of these benefits are when I finally reached my highest, most healthy weight. 

 

  Comment down below the benefit you're most looking forward to in your ed-recovery journey!

 

Much luv,

 Hey Babe, 

I WISH I had a "big sister" during my ED Recovery-- Some one who fully understood my thoughts, feelings, fears, + who could support me in what I needed to do next to achieve full recovery. 

Recovery is HARD + there are so many aspects of it that I was not prepared for which is why I now coach women through this process. If you are struggling then reach out, I'm here to help :)
