Son,DX with AN, (purging type) in 2015 ,had 4 months immediate inpatient,then FBT at home since. He is now in very strong recovery,  and Living life to the full, like a "normal"[biggrin] teen. This is with thanks to ATDT. Hoping to get him into full recovery and remission one day at a time. Getting him to a much higher weight, and with a much higher calorie plan than his clinicians gave him as a target, was instrumental to getting him to the strong recovery that he is in now. Food is the medicine. Recovery is possible.

Thanks for sharing toothfairy!  Tissues needed for sure!  So proud of those young women!  I am going to tell my D about the campaign and see if she would like to participate.  I am so proud of my D too!  (Tears coming again . . . )

The first video is my daughter guys! Diagnosed at 10.5 and will be 18 in May. She has been in a solid recovery without any relapses now since around 14. Smashing that damn scale was cathartic! I did it to and it’s felt damn good!

Wow very moving to watch, can see how powerful it was for the girls too!
I was advised very early on in my d journey to throw out the scales, which I did,not really understanding at the time how valuable that advise was
Great job girls! Congratulations on recovery and your pregnancy!!!!
The snow looks..........COLD!!

Hi mamabear,
what a wonderful and powerful young lady you have!
I can imagine how it felt to crash this scale. We have none any more but I think about buying one for that, but it might be too soon and triggering to get onto it. Maybe in a few months.
Big hug from Germany,
