Della, that’s great! Baby steps is what it’s all about. It gets easier. Hunger/fullness cues can take time (like a few months). When I was in recovery I was told it takes a full year of normal eating for your metabolism to really recover, and I think that’s true.

(BTW, I hope you have a good therapist to work with through all the feelings that come up as you recover. Once you start to get past the starvation-recovery stage, you start to deal with a lot of the emotions that you can ignore when you are starving, and you need to understand why you began starving yourself to begin with. All of that gets easier as well. Eating properly is step #1 in loving yourself and understanding that you are a worthwhile and valuable person.)
