"By nature, individuals with eating disorders tend to be perfectionistic and high achieving -- they like to do things right, and they like to be the best at their endeavors," explains Julie Holland, MHS, CEDS, chief marketing officer at Eating Recovery Center. "Their approach to recovery is generally no different, and patients often struggle to understand that life without an eating disorder looks different for every individual and there is no 'right' or 'perfect' way to live a life of recovery. In addition to developing recovery skills and implementing effective support systems, patients must also accept that challenges are likely to arise and understand that they have not failed even if recovery lapses occur."
