Recovery Challenge

Over the next 30 days, I will be answering one of these questions a day. I found this on an inspiring Recovery website and decided to take the challenge.
Recovery Challenge

2. What does recovery mean to YOU?

4. What are factors that contributed in your choice to recover?
5. What actions do you believe could be taken in the future to help prevent your child(ren) or close friends from ever developing an eating disorder?
6. What was your favorite meal before your ED? What is your favorite meal now?
