Book Review: Goodbye Ed, Hello Me
I just finished reading “Good-bye Ed, Hello Me” by Jenni Schaefer and I am a HUGE fan. Jenni wrote about being “in recovery” in her first book “Life Without Ed” (which is also a phenomenal book that I highly recommend). But in this follow-up book, she talks about what life is like and what life has to offer post-eating disorder recovery.
Things I loved about the book:
Guides to developing a new identity that isn’t connected to body, weight, or an eating disorder
Short chapters that can be read in 5 minutes- easy to pick up and put down
Practical self-help tools and exercises
Importance of incorporating spirituality into your recovery
Suggestions and insight for friends and family of those struggling with an eating disorder
I highly recommend this book for anyone hoping to recover from an eating disorder, those in recovery from an eating disorder, as well as family/friends who are trying to support someone through their recovery. Happy reading!
