Eating Disorder Recovery: Celebrating Small Wins and Prioritizing Self-Care

Self care can look like eating on a tough body image day, ordering takeout instead of cooking, packing an extra snack, or taking a rest day from movement.

Self-care is an essential component of eating disorder recovery. While it might seem like a simple concept, it can be challenging for those struggling with disordered eating habits to prioritize self-care. As dietitians, we understand that recovery is a journey, and every step, no matter how small, is a win.

When working with clients, we always talk about the “wins” they’ve had since their last session. A win in recovery might not be obvious, and it might even feel like a failure at first. For example, packing a snack that you didn’t end up eating may seem like a failure, but it’s actually a step in the right direction. Recovery is a process, and every step is worth celebrating.

At our practice, we believe in a client-centered approach to eating disorder recovery. We understand that every individual’s journey is unique and requires personalized care. We are here to collaborate with you and support you every step of the way.
