Eating Disorders, Disordered Eating, and Body Image

Moving through life with an eating disorder is not an easy journey; it's difficult to be fully engaged in life when you're surrounded by food. It can feel as though your body is in a constant battle with your mind: do I avoid the food to avoid the fear or do I fuel my body? Is there something wrong with me if I fuel my body? Our society equates a white-centric, colonized body as a valuable body, and a valuable body as a valuable and worthy person.
