You know you're in recovery when... don't bother clicking on the "Casseroles Under 200 Calories!" link in your cooking newsletter because you know they won't cut it for your meal plan.

...instead, you click on the link for energy bar recipes and think "that's more like it."

I love this. I just had one of these moments this weekend: You know you're in recovery when you go out of your way to put butter on your pancakes.

Exactly. My mother gave me a low-fat cookbook (don't ask) and I was looking through it, thinking "Do you know how many servings I would have to eat of this 150 calorie entree?"

I need one of those Facebook "like" buttons on this one!

Great and here I thought you were giving us casserole recepies. It didn't click till I read some of the comments that normal people eat more than 200 calories at a meal. Oh well live and learn.

You know you're recovered when your husband offers you a warm and gooey smore and you eat it without doing mental calisthenics in figuring out how many calories it has.

I'm a science writer, a jewelry design artist, a bookworm, a complete geek, and mom to a wonderful kitty. I am also recovering from a decade-plus battle with anorexia nervosa. I believe that complete recovery is possible, and that the first step along that path is full nutrition.
