Hi, I've been in recovery for quite a while now and have gained a fair amount of weight. I am now almost at a healthy weight for my age and height. 

I was just wondering, is there anyone in the same boat that wants to share their experience and maybe give each other some good advice smile

      I was the same as you, dont worry.

      It is a scary time, and its a big step to take, but i will say there is nothing to be scared of.

      I started at 39kg i think at 14, and im now 16 and im around 50kg (last time i was weighed). I dont know how old you are but Im here for you, and message me if you want to talk about absolutely anything at all.

      But in answer to your question, yes you will be able to stop putting weight on. And yes you will be able to eat normal amounts like everyone else instead of extra to gain the weight. But it doesnt mean that you can stop trying smile you have to keep going, do it for you!

      Anyway, feel free to message me anytime and im sorry for the late reply. GCSE's are stressful aha
