Recovery is the “end goal” of eating disorder treatment and support. But many would describe eating disorder recovery as a process – and a messy one at that. To look at social media content focused on recovery, one might begin to believe that eating disorder recovery looks like a perfectly polished, idealized, and privileged place where oat bowls are bountiful and physiques fit the mythical social ideal. And yet, people who seek to recover from eating disorders come in all shapes and sizes and from all walks of life. What is the impact of only seeing some versions of what recovery is or can be? In this talk, I discuss the importance of pluralizing recoveries to open up space for different ways of being in recovery. I will share ideas about how to support people in recovery and about systemic shifts that start from within and foster more widespread body acceptance.
