I realized the other day that it has officially been just over a year since my last binge. This is the longest I have ever been able to go without a binge and I don’t even hesitate to say it out loud for fear of jinxing it. Before this I had made it six or seven months I think, but my head is in a very different place and I have no doubt that I will stay in recovery. That is not to say that I never struggle because I still have days that are hard and I have to remind myself of what’s important. I still read my binge recovery manual, “Women, Food, & God” by Geneen Roth to make sure I stay the course. I highly recommend this book for everyone who has food issue, body issues, etc.
It has been quite a year and I am feeling better than I have felt in a long time. Moving forward and never going back!
