“For many moms, the reality is that interoceptive awareness, or being able to listen and respond to the messages that your body is giving you, is not possible. And that does not mean that you’re a failure that does not mean that you’re not doing this right. That you’re not recovered enough from your eating disorder or that something is wrong with you. The reality is there are a lot of obstacles out there that make it really challenging, especially as mothers to be in tune with our body’s cues.”
