In this episode of Fighting Anorexia, I share my top 7 recovery tips with you. I was inspired by Julie Parker’s amazing book “My Recovery” because many of the suggestions shared in this book resonated strongly with me and my own experience.

My Top 7 Recovery Tips

  1. Explore your creative side
  2. Embrace Imperfection
  3. Don’t diet and eat intuitively
  4. Don’t be ashamed to ask for professional help. Ever.
  5. Separate yourself from your eating disorder
  6. Let Love in and cultivate Self-Love
  7. Know that recovery is not linear and take one step at a time

You can find me on aMINDmedia.com and you can check out my new podcast. Also, be sure to check out the 28 Loving Reawakenings, the Body Image Revolution Course, the True Beauty Mastermind Program and so much more. All can be found on aMINDmedia. I am not going anywhere, I’m just moving on. I hope you’ll move with me.

Like I said, the new podcast will focus on self-empowerment and that is something that is crucial for recovery as well.

Thank you for everything and please never forget that you are beautiful, worthy and deserving.

In this special episode of Fighting Anorexia, I share an interview with my sister Valerie with you. Valerie has been my rock in the years of my struggle and has been there for my during the hard months of recovery.

She’s three years younger than me and I have always felt horrible for impacting her youth in such a negative way, but I am proud of her for being such a strong, independent and amazing young woman.

In the interview we talk about the first time she noticed that I was sick, how it was for her to see me getting sicker and sicker, how she has tried to help me and how the disorder influenced her in general.

We then discuss the fact that there are moments where you are angry at the person that has the illness for many understandable reasons and how you can deal with those feelings. And we talk about the way that my recovery has influenced her and her life and so much more.
