Setting Healthy Boundaries in Eating Disorder Recovery — Emily Fonnesbeck, RD It seems that in terms of health and fitness, a common belief is that strength and self-improvement comes from eating a certain way, sticking to a diet or pushing through the pain in exercise. I don’t believe it. I feel that true strength and self-improvement comes from being true to yourself and respecting yourself enough to avoid the demoralizing world of weight, body shape and diet obsession.

I remember during the roughest time in my disorder last year, I went to the beach. I walked inside of a ice cream shop and asked what they had that was sugar free. The boy looked at me and said, "But sugar is the good part." And smiled, probably unaware of how deeply involved I was in my disorder. I ended up getting a kids cup of sorbet and felt guilty for it. Something in me though changed that day, hearing a voice so carefree, so... Normal regarding food. I'll never forget that.
