#Bodygoals-Check yourself before you wreck yourself.

I hopped in the Mighty Soul community today to talk a little about what I went through with my body dysmorphia and binge eating disorder, and what I now realize the driving force behind my body goal making decision was.

Today I want to briefly talk about the word "healing" when it comes to recovering from disordered eating patterns. I think a lot of us overthink this word and assume it means once you get to a certain point, you will be completely free and you'll never experience another difficult moment with food again, ever.
