So just a quick up date.We have reached weight goal and then some about a month ago.Our phycologist thinks now is the time to go into stage 2.I have read about different stages.We are still in the middle of re introducing fear foods.Should all of her fear foods be conquered before starting stage two.

Hi berry75 and toothfairy,

Here is a link to a recent thread with many comments from the experienced parents

Unfortunately, from what I have read, there are no short cuts to preventing relapse and the younger your kid the longer you have to chase growth, puberty and true recovery.

Best of luck with the next phase though,

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
