Thanks toothfairy- very timely. My s has started to get twitchy about Christmas and keeps begging me to avoid getting in any "treats". My kids have always had chocolate coins and a chocolate Santa in their stocking for instance but this year we'll be focusing on non food related celebrations.
Really appreciate your links x

2015 12yo son restricting but no body image issues, no fat phobia; lost weight IP! Oct 2015 home, stable but no progress. Medical hosp to kick start recovery Feb 2016. Slowly and cautiously gaining weight at home and seeing signs of our real kid.

May 2017 Hovering around WR. Mood great, mostly. Building up hour by hour at school after 18 months at home. Summer 2017 Happy, first trip away in years, food variety, begin socialising. Sept 2017, back to school FT first time in 2 years. [thumb] 2018 growing so fast hard to keep pace with weight
