When is Excessive Weight Gain in Full Remission

Posted Nov 12 2012 5:00am

If you think of being overweight as a disease, what would full remission look like?

Would it be that you achieved a more normal body weight? That would certainly be one criterion for being in full remission. What about other criteria like positive self-regard, better ways to cope with your feelings, greater confidence in yourself, increased physical and psychological comfort, look better, feel healthier, and take more satisfaction in your everyday functioning without your old eating problems?

What other criteria would you use besides actual weight loss to say, “I’m all better now”?
