I like this post. I'm struggling with body image right now and as hard as it's been, I think I'm staying loyal. I haven't relapsed because I'm committed to my recovery. I have this theory when I'm "stuck" or struggling I will "do no harm," meaning I may not feel like I'm moving forward, but I will not move "backwards." I'm also "faking it until I make it" with my feeling towards certain body parts. I've been OK with them before so I'm continueing with the same treatment as before the switch. I "danced" my body parts in my dance class yesterday as a way to celebrate them. I've also been using lotion on them in hopes that I'll feel better about them.....can't hurt. So I like the idea of being loyal...can't say it's easy, but I do agree that it's very helpful. Thanks Joanna!
