So I mentioned a week or two ago that I finally pulled my head out of the sand, took off my rose-colored glasses, and told my 10-year old daughter that I had an eating disorder. Here is the letter I wrote and read to her, to get the conversation going… MamaV just posted it on […]

My husband and I thought that our newly-minted 10-yr-old daughter has been looking pretty thin over the last six to nine months.  She had always been a picky eater (like her mom), but her zen for desserts/junk food seemed to be changing.  Whereas prior to that time, on any given day you could count on […]
