Athens, Alabama
My name is Savannah and I'm 24 and overweight. I'm trying to get in shape for myself, my daughter, and my husband.

Recovering from a serious eating disorder is arguably one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. It is a constant battle, 24/7 with no relief, often not even in sleep. How do I know?

I have been to an intensive in-patient treatment...
