I started thinking about eating as a way to fuel my body for runs instead of running and exercise being punishment for food I had eaten.
For recovery, I took a break from running

What I wish for every person who has struggled with an eating disorder is to one day really be able to have a different relationship with food. I purged literally and with exercise for years and restricted as well, just like you did. It is a real joy now to truly look at food as fuel in order to help my body do all the amazing things it wants to do — like run! Even more, I can truly say today that I LOVE food, everything about it. I know I am very lucky and not every recovering person gets that, but I do believe it can be achieved! Really enjoyed reading your story, thanks for sharing!
