Even Therapists Have Had Eating Disorders

When I was a teenager I started to believe I could be “just a little more fit,” and “lose just a few pounds.”  I got into a cycle that didn’t really get under control until I was 22 years old.  I CONSTANTLY thought about my body.  I worried I was gaining weight.  I worried I had cellulite.  It didn’t take much to trigger this.  Hear more about my battle with bulimia, non-purging type in this quick video:
