I think for me, "to do" lists or "don't do" lists provided structure. While in my ED I was very rigid with everything! I think not having something "rigid" or with structure, would have left me hanging with nothing to hold on to. I believe that's why I meal planned for 8 months, not missing a single day even when I had no intention of eating it all. Recovery gives a lot more freedoms, but I for one would not have been ready to be structure-less. Having said that, you've talked before about not "bingeing" on recovery and too many lists could lead to that; so it's all about moderation and realistic goals or lists. Keep it simple!
