Alexandra,

Just another thank you…
A couple of months ago I sent you a little thank you for talking about your eating disorder and inspiring me to seek help for mine. I was extremely surprised and even more inspired to find out that you responded! Thanks to you, and all those who have supported me, I was able to actually eat and enjoy Thanksgiving, my birthday, and Christmas. This is something I haven’t done since I was in 13, and I’m now 24! I can only imagine how much better it gets! Wow! Thanks again for the inspiration!

Dear Leah,
I am thrilled to hear about your progress – that is so wonderful. Life without bingeing and purging is like having a huge weight taken off your shoulders, no pun intended, and the more balanced you get around food, the better your life will be, I promise.

It is important to understand WHY you turn to food in an unhealthy way so that you won’t return to your eating disorder when life gets stressful. Therapy is very good at helping us understand ourselves and at giving us other tools to deal with life’s challenges. I also recommend a 12 Step Program (Overeaters Anonymous, which deals with all eating disorders, really helped me. Go to www.oa.org to find meeting near you) if you want the support of others who understand intimately what you are going through.
Congratulations on your courage in making this change in your life. It is never easy, but it is definitely worth it!

Thank you so much for the update,
Alexandra
