Join me today as I chat with writer and comedian, Ginny Hogan. I contacted Ginny after I read her article on the shame she felt as an adult with an eating disorder.

Being in eating disorder recovery myself, I wanted to know more about her journey and how she was feeling now.

In our conversation, we discussed how it feels to be adults recovering from eating disorders (which can be incorrectly perceived as a teen issue).

We also touch on the impact of Instagram and diet culture on body image, and the need to acknowledge the struggles around food and body instead of focusing on someone’s physical appearance.

Ultimately, Ginny and I emphasize the importance of being grateful for our bodies’ capabilities as we strive towards recovery.

If you take anything away from this episode, I hope it’s that no recovery is wrapped up nicely in a bow. You can be proud of your own efforts to have a recovery that is as unique as you are.
