Podcast 7: Eating Recovery Day


We’re doing something a little different with this podcast episode - as part of ERC’s first ever Eating Recovery Day on May 3rd, we are answering this question: “If you could go back and talk to yourself at the beginning of your recovery journey, what would your wiser self say to your younger self?”

You can hear Lisa and Lynn talk about this question below, or by downloading the episode here.
