"I have noticed so many parents with kids in the 9-14 age range lately who are being told to back off on calories and supervision because the child has reached “weight restoration” during treatment for an eating disorder. As a family who fed a very young child through puberty, I feel compelled to address this."

I hope this especially helps those of you with kids who have a ton of growth and change to go through. Don’t stop. Keep those fats and calories high! Stay in it for the long game. 
Persistent, consistent vigilance!
Love it!
13 yo d started to eat "healthy" September 2018, she had a growth spurt a bit later, followed by tummy bug. She started restricting breakfast and school lunch in January 2019 (that we know). We succesfully refed at home.
I have found inner strenght, patience and compassion that I did not know I had.
Never retreat, never surrender
keep feeding
Persistent, consistent vigilance!
