I think this is where the 'parental confidence' piece is really huge. She had a freak out, you guys stayed calm and stuck with the plan and she got through. You are not back at square 1. Ed is going to rear it's ugly head many more times on this journey. This is part of it and you managed it. This is where our staying calm and steady helps them to continue to trust us and rely on us to guide them out of the cave.
"We love you...we know what we are doing".....I love that! You do love your girl and you do know what you are doing. You are not afraid of ed and she sees that and it makes her feel safe.
-anotherbite from the thread Arghh she weighed herself
Oh, the memories you've stirred up - - like the blasted measuring cups!! Aaack - we would go away to the mountains for the weekend and d would get this panicked look on her face and ask if I'd packed the measuring cups, diet scale and meal plan handbook. And of course I always did, and hated myself for doing it, but I wanted her to eat and shouldn't wouldn't eat without them. H has now torn up the meal plan book in a million little pieces, jumped up and down on them, and them swept them up and thrown them away. I kid you not.
