[INTERVIEW] Escaping the Grip of Body Dysmorphia and an Eating Disorder Once and For All and Finding Newfound Self-Love and Self-Confidence

Ep. 209 - WordPress

Meet Mandi.

A 36-year-old mother, who, due to her husband’s frequent and extended travel, acts as a solo parent while being a dog mom, homeowner, and full-time career woman.

Mandi spent her teenage and early adulthood consumed by an unhealthy relationship with food and extreme body dysmorphia, which ultimately culminated in a diagnosis of an eating disorder. 

After seeking the appropriate support and help she needed, Mandi still battled residual guilty and self-sabotaging thoughts related to her food choices and the way she looked. And to no surprise, this directly impacted the way she felt about herself, the confidence she had in herself, and how she showed up in her relationships and career.

Sick of having tried everything and then some to improve her relationship with food and herself, Mandi invested in herself by joining The 5% Community.

Since joining, not only has Mandi gone on to lose dozens of pounds and countless inches, but she’s absolutely transformed her self-talk, relationship with food and dieting, and can now confidently shout from a mountaintop just how much she loves herself and her body.

She is an absolutely different woman inside and out from when she first joined and I’m excited to share her story with you on today’s episode.
