Why is accountability so important in recovery from an eating disorder? Having a system in place to hold you accountable for your behaviors and actions is one of the most important things in recovery because it promotes honesty and progress.

It can be very easy to fall into old habits and harmful thoughts and behaviors.

This is especially true when you first enter recovery. Having someone to hold you accountable not only helps to move you out of your comfort zone and challenges you to keep growing in your recovery, but it can also provide a safe place to voice your feelings when you feel like you are struggling.

Different stages of recovery require different levels and types of accountability.

Early in recovery, accountability partners consisting of your recovery team and possibly family and friends are essential training wheels to help establish your own internal accountability system. Thinking you can do it all yourself can be dangerous. Having someone to help guide you and hold you accountable to your plans of action is critical in recovery from an eating disorder.

No matter where you are in recovery, the number one aspect to any accountability plan is honesty.

ED hates honesty and will convince you to lie or be deceptive in order to preserve your destructive habits. Usually, if you are scared to be honest about your behaviors or feelings, it’s probably best to share them with your accountability partner and be honest when you are not able to follow through with goals.

Being held accountable is not easy. It can also be scary because you are going to be challenged to stretch beyond your comfort zone. However, you must remember this fear is a sign you are continuing to grow in your recovery.
