Lisa is my friend and I’m so proud that she was willing to discuss a tough subject. Eating disorders and body image.
First I go over some unnerving stats and then we delve into Lisa’s story growing up, how and when body image became noticeable, how as a teenager Lisa dealt with it, when an eating disorder came into play and how (in her now 53 years of life) she works with it.
Lisa and I have known each other for about 8 years. We were on the same running team. We ran our toughest 10K together and I will be forever grateful for having her by my side for that and for knowing her. Our hope is that this podcast will open more and better discussions about body image and eating disorders, which are prevalent in our society, especially among females starting in their teens.
