A flower does not think of competing to the flower next to it. It just blooms.

If you’re having to count calories, restrict food and/or exercise purely to “keep your weight down” and allay anxieties about becoming “too big”, then the weight that you’re at is almost definitely not right for your body. Breathe. Let your body be. It’s fine just how it was before; it’s always fine. All bodies are fine, even yours. It can be hard to accept that sometimes, but it’s true. Not accepting this will only lead to compulsion, misery, low self-esteem and, ultimately, an eating disorder. Breathe. Let your body be.

mod note: It’s always a good idea to check with a dietitian/therapist to make sure you’re meeting your physical/emotional needs, especially if you’re concerned about a possible relapse. But also: some variation in diet is normal! People without eating disorders have some days where they feel less hungry, and some days where they feel more hungry, or where they eat a bit more than average or a bit less. The point is that 1) they are honoring their hunger cues rather than trying to control them, and 2) they are still meeting their physical needs as an average, and 3) are doing so without extreme variation (e.g., severe restricting followed by binge eating).
