This is one episode that I simply can't write out all the show notes.
Months ago, I shared my story of exercise addiction (Spotify link to ep. 273). How it started, how I recognized it, and how I still battle with it.
On that show, I said I would do another episode sharing my eating disorder story. Trying to do both in one podcast would be too emotional and too long for you and me.
I pushed the 2nd topic off for over a year. A year and 4 months to be exact.
This was a hard episode to record. Harder to edit. And the hardest to hit publish.
If you're triggered by eating disorder talk, just skip this episode.
So why am I sharing this now?
Because I've been doing a lot of self reflection.
Working on my own confidence and also being more transparent with you so that I can be the best trainer and nutrition coach I can be.
I want listeners to know my story with the idea that I understand the struggles, the internal battles, and the self sabotage so many woman deal with. I've dealt with it for decades.
In the episode...
You'll learn more about my addictive personality.
My need to be in control.
As well as some personal stories of being broken down and belittled for the way I looked or acted by close friends/family.
This is not to diagnose or help provide treatment. This is my story.
But there's good news...
I broke free of my eating disorder. Yes, it's always in the back of my mind... but I fight it.
I don't let it control me.
I learned long ago I want to be healthy, strong, fit, and be an example.
I hope you enjoy my story.
