this is what i worry about all the time too! i feel like my body is not going to be the way it used to be and i am so sad and mad because i look back on pictures of how i used to be and i found that i really did like the way my body looked before. but i had to mess it up with an eating disorder...ugh i wish i had never ever done that. i do think that it is selfish for both of us to worry about this and i feel really bad just worrying about my body all the time and not other things that are happening. like when i heard my grandparent was diagnosed with cancer, i was worried for about 5 minutes and then started thinking about how i hate my body. an eating disorder is such a horrible thing to have because it consumes your thoughts and I HATE IT!!!! but yeah, sorry this didn't really help with your question...i just wanted to say that i worry about that too. but congratulations on deciding to recover! i do think that life is much better in recovery!
