My Definition of Recovered

The field struggles to define "recovered," but I knew it was important to do so for my clients. So, I came up with my own definition and use it to point out to all my clients where they are headed.  

Being recovered to me is when the person can accept his or her natural body size and shape and no longer has a self destructive or unnatural 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 a scale."
