Um, yes and no.

I believe the thoughts will be around, more or less, for the rest of my life. I probably will have an altered body image (I still don't have an accurate one), slightly unhealthy notions around food (I still have a couple quirks with certain things), and will have to actively change my OCD thoughts away from food (at times) for the rest of my life.

BUT, I don't see myself as returning to the eating disorder lifestyle, physically or in action ever again. Even with the occasional thought, I can't see it affecting my behavior or causing a downward slide toward the eating disorder.

So yeah, I get why they call it lifelong. But I don't think I will have to fight it like I did ever again.
