I’ve been anorexic for years. Never got treatment, just decided that I really couldn’t live this way anymore. I’ve been in recovery for the past few months and last night, my friends and I ate fast food after drinking. In the moment, I just wanted to eat and it tasted so good but I woke up this morning with major regret. I feel like I need to do a huge workout and eat super healthy for the next week. How do I get over this feeling of regret and just enjoy fast food as a treat occasionally?

That instant regret can be hard to cope with but you deserve a treat, drinking alcohol has more calories than people think but you’ve not got in your head about that? Treat yourself and try not to overthink things ❤
