Welcome to the ED Recovery Challenge! Inspired by the various pro-ed challenge communities already in existance, I thought there should be a pro-recovery challenge as well! The goal of this community is to encourage recovery and healthy eating habits.

Every day you can earn points in the following categories:

Food
+1 for sticking to your meal plan.
~If your goal is to maintain/gain or just gain weight, earn 1 extra point for eating MORE than planned.
~If your goal is to stop bingeing, earn 1 point for each binge-free day.

Exercise
*Before starting an exercise plan, please meet with your doctor and make sure that it would be safe*
+1 for 30+ minutes of exercise.
~If it is safe for you, earn 1 point for each additional 30 minutes.

Water
+1 for drinking at least 4 glasses
+2 for drinking at least 8 glasses

Self-Esteem
+1 for every thing you do that makes you feel good about yourself.

Negative Points
-1 for purging (Subtract one point for each time)
-1 for taking any diet pills (unless perscribed by a doctor)
-1 for overexercising

Other
+1 for posting


When joining, please make your first post your introduction.

At the end of each week add up your points. This is a contest against YOURSELF, not the other members. The goal is to get more points than you did the week before. Hopefully we can help each other become healthy and happy!
