    I can relate to this. I had an eating disorder when I was in my teens. I had food hidden in my room where my mom and brothers couldn’t find it. I do not do it now as an adult but sometimes I have the urge. I use meditation and yoga to center myself and get past it.

      Thanks for sharing, Anne Marie. I know it’s kind of nerve-wrecking to share something so personal and scary but sharing is probably helpful!

      I’m glad that Rachel decided to share her story, too. It took some convincing on my part and I’m glad she said yes. I think it’s important for people with eating disorders to know there’s others struggling out there too!

    Thanks everyone for the support, it was really hard to write this post but looking back I realize that I have come a long way in my relationship with food, but I have room to grow and am now in therapy (yay!) to help me mend the emotional eating cycle. It’s difficult, but I have a toolbox now with some great tools and an amazing support network. Again, thanks for hearing my voice and being so supportive 🙂

      It’s a hard topic to talk about I’m sure. I’m glad you decided to share it. I bet it helped some people out there who may not have shared their own stories. You never know!
