When my cognitive abilities still haven’t returned to normal
Reminder: Gaining weight is a normal and inescapable part of recovery, and it does not demonstrate weakness or failure. You are still in control.
“"I need to lose like 500 pounds by summer"
NO. You really don’t.
You need to love yourself by summer. And I don’t mean love yourself once you drop a dress size, once you get your hair coloured, once your spots go. I mean love yourself now… in every state.
You don’t need to lose 500 pounds by summer. Losing 500 pounds will only make you lighter; it will not bring you peace of mind - you’ll want to lose more. There is always more to lose.
Don’t lose 500 pounds by summer.
Love yourself by summer.
It’ll get you so much further than losing weight EVER will. I promise.”
