No hard feelings, your mental health always comes first. 🖤--This is the first episode where you'll be hearing me and Ricardo talk about something that is so prominent in our lives right now -- my eating disorders. For me, it's been hard to realize that having an eating disorder and being in a bigger body is still not accepted in society. I've had a hard time finding content that empowers women who are in a bigger body and working through an eating disorder, especially in my Latinx community. I think a lot of the reason why I still feel like the odd man out is because, personally I am still unlearning the stigma around what body types are considered "acceptable" to have an eating disorder. There isn't a solution to this episode. This is just a real and raw conversation between me, my husband, and my Fearless Friends Club.--For assistance with a possible eating disorder I would highly recommend you reach out to NEDA. They are the ones that helped me start my recovery:https://www.nationaleatingdisorders.org/help-support/contact-helpline--Get involved with the podcast @fearlessfriendsclub on Instagram & TikTok.
