1 month since I began my recovery journey

Four weeks into my BED recovery journey, and so far I’ve only lost around 9 pounds. This has been an extremely insightful (aka extremely difficult and frustrating) journey so far, but I think it will ultimately be worth it. It’s hard for me to continue seeing my nutritionist every week, even when I feel humiliated when I fail to follow the plan I’m supposed to be taking,but so far I’ve gone every week. Hopefully, eleven months from now, I can look back at this slog of (enlightening) failures, and see them as important lessons on my path to real and lasting health.

“Yes, poor little old you. There we were, discussing rape, violence against women, systemic oppression and other manifestations of sexism, and you had to jump in to remind us that “not all men” do these things. Why don’t you really say what you want to say? “I HAVE NEVER RAPED/HIT/ASSAULTED A WOMAN!” Right? Isn’t this what you really want to say? Yes, make a discussion that is about the plight of MILLIONS of women about poor little old you. I mean, millions of women are being assaulted and oppressed, but you’ve never done it, so why are we making you uncomfortable with these discussions?”
