Body Shaming My Old Binge Eating Disorder Body

I’ve recently encountered a new form of body shaming and this time, it’s body shaming of my old binge eating disorder body (No Body Is Perfect: Body Image and Shame).

I’m not a doctor, an eating disorders expert, a binge eating disorder therapist or a sociologist. So why should anyone listen to me when I talk about binge eating disorder?
