alloy blouse, nordstrom skirt, thrifted flats, target belt, f21 cardigan

I'll have to admit, when the maxi-skirt trend first came on to the scene I wasn't quite on board.  I never thought I'd be able to pull one off.  but, after seeing them styled countless times on many style icons, they have grown on me and...VOILA! I'm in one.  and guess what?  I'm in love.  this is the first of (hopefully) many.

so I'm really excited that you all are excited about the FAQ's on eating disorders, cause I am too!  I want to share my experiences to help others, and what better way to do it.

How do you overcome the fear of weight gain in recovery?

There is no simple solution to this question, but I'll try to sum it up.
Not everyone has an epiphany or a triumphant "aha" moment; I know I didn't.  But what everyone does have is the power to change.  You have to find the strength to overcome that fear within yourself, and you have to truly, sincerely want health or just pretend like you want health (even if you don't).  Because as soon as you start to pretend to believe in weight gain and all that it will do for you, sooner or later, you will start to actually believe in it.  Take it little by little, one day at a time, and you will get there, I promise!  Don't be afraid of the unknown; as FDR once said, "the only fear is fear itself".

what is the biggest fear you've ever had to overcome?
