Go Girl Go Speech Update!

For those that dont know I spoke at a curriculum school meeting here in San Antonio last Thursday and Friday about eating disorders and how important it is to have early prevention.

It went well and I was so excited to actually be able to share my story because I learned that talking about eating disorders like bulimia and anorexia is very touchy! I mean we can walk about talking about how obese this nation is with no problem, but people scatter and go hush hush when someone mentions someone throwing up after they eat… I can understand why, but there needs to be more people out here that will speak up about it!

In the end there were some that came up to me afterwards and spoke privately about issues that they were having or family members etc… I was so glad that I could reach out and be that resource for those that needed it and were at their whits end and didnt know where to turn, to them I was a blessing at just the right time. I thank God for placing me there and that I could be of some assistance! It was a great experience and I cant wait to get out there and do it again!
