Sunday Weigh-In

I weighed N yesterday. He is up to 94 lbs. I'm thrilled that he continues to gain.

His behaviours have improved quickly this past week since we returned home. The past few days, though, he has eaten several times to the point of making himself sick. I want to encourage him to listen to his body, but don't want him to learn to binge and purge. I've tried to help him make varied food choices, but he seems to lean towards sweets and carbs. It seems like a careful dance to help him choose foods that will help his body and brain heal, yet to encourage him to listen to his body and celebrate the fact that he is eating of his own free will.
