Stories in recovery also involve being able to feel all our feelings, knowing they won’t kill us, and knowing they have absolutely nothing to do with food; learning when we are full of feelings versus full of food; learning how to get still, whether through meditation, spiritual practice, or being duct taped to the chair to start; learning how to listen to our own intuition, beliefs, and truths and to let go—piece by piece, message by message—those that no longer serve us; writing our own non-fiction story and being willing to rewrite our old “perfect” ending with the “perfect” body, finding instead one we can sustain and that can sustain us: our own groove. This is the rough, inelegant, challenging road to recovery—and not for the faint-hearted.
