Say goodbye to Body Checking
Part 1 of 2
1. Ask yourself, ‘Have you had enough pain?’
Kristie – In my eating disorder I had a complete and total addiction to checking the size of my stomach. I would check in front of the mirror, with my hands, or just by looking down at my body. Once, in a single hour I tallied myself ‘checking’ over fifty times!.
You don’t have to give up body checking. No one can make you. If you choose to hang onto it as your ‘safety behavior’, I can promise you that living with a little bit of an eating disorder is no different to living with a full blown eating disorder. Trust me. I tried it for over a decade. Turns out, you are still in a cage.
