Kristie Amadio’s Favorite Quote
With addiction, you can figure out how to lock the tiger in its cage and keep it there. With recovery from an eating disorder you have to figure out how to put the tiger on a leash and walk it three times a day. When you’re recovered there is no tiger.

Kristie Amadio’s Advice to Former Self
I believe 100% that you can recover. It’s going to be work. but its going to be ok.
Kristie Amadio’s Definition of Recovery
Being recovered is when a person can accept his or her natural body size and shape and no longer has a self destructive relationship with food or exercise. When you’re recovered, food and weight take a proper perspective in your life and what you weigh is not more important than who you are; in fact actual numbers are of little or no importance at all. When recovered you’ll not compromise your health or your soul to look a certain way, wear a certain size, or reach a certain number on the scale. When you are recovered you do not use eating disorder behaviors to deal with, distract from, or cope with other problems.
