“Bigger pants, BIGGER life”
One of our therapists in treatment, used to say this over and over to us. At the time all I thought about was the bigger pants. I did NOT want bigger pants. That would = Fat.
It’s only now being on the other side I’m able to realise the true value of what she meant. By being free of my eating disorder, my life has become so much fuller. I have more relationships, I have more opportunities, I value myself and others more. It’s bigger than ever imaginable.
The funny thing now is I don’t really think too much about the bigger pants, but how much more my life can grow. I still struggle with accepting my body, but these days it’s less important and doesn’t hold as much power. To me, that’s personally a huge win in my recovery
