Life after a long recovery

I've always wondered -- if you have been recovering for a long time (say 3+ years), have the thoughts in your head ever died down or gone away?  I'm referring to the thoughts or "voice" in your head that might say you're too big, you need to restrict or fast, you can't eat more than a certain number of calories otherwise you'll gain weight, etc.

I've been recovering for 5 years now and that voice has died down a lot, but it's still there.  It's kind of irritating.  It usually occurs when I'm stressed out, but I never act on whatever thoughts are in my head (such as "you need to fast!") so I guess that's a good thing.  I'm definitely glad I've been this successful with recovery (I feel pretty much recovered), but those thoughts make me question if I'm truly recovered.
