“For me recovery is about being out of your safe zone and feeling proud and liberated, forgetting the former shadow of yourself and re-inventing a new identity.”

Imogen, 25

“I never thought I would cope with my body changing during pregnancy but I’m stronger than I think I am and I’m so proud of what I’ve achieved.”

Kate, 32

“At the age of 57 I consider recovery a turning-point, enabling me to enjoy a full, active life which is no longer dominated by anxieties about food and weight.”

Olwen, 57

“You don’t have to be ready to recover, you just have to not want to spend one more day or one more hour or one more minute living like you are.”

Rachel, 41

“I've come a long way, to me recovery means freedom and being at peace with yourself. As you recover you start to feel real happiness - better than any you can get from starving or losing weight because it is REAL - and it's amazing.”

Maddy, 21

“To me, recovery is the effort each day towards a life where food is not an enemy, simply a nice accompaniment to a full lifestyle.”

Freya, 15
