Dear Tri-Fit-A-Thon Charity Sponsor,
Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! I cannot express enough how much I appreciate you wanting to help out others and to make a difference!
There are 20 million women and 10 million men in the USA that suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time during their life. Binge eating disorder (BED) is a severe, life threatening disorder characterized by recurrence of eating large quantities of food (often very quickly) to the point of discomfort. During a binge there is a feeling of losing control what follows is shame, distress or guilt. Sometimes, this will lead to purging the food to counter the binge (possibly leading to bulimia).
Here are some statistic from the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA)
- BED often begins in the late teens or early 20s, although it has been reported in both young children and older adults.
- Three out of ten individuals looking for weight loss treatments show signs of BED.
Raising money for Overeater’s Anonymous is close to my heart as I deal with many women who have a distorted view on food and self perception. Getting fit and healthy isn’t just about working out and eating “right”. There is a mental component which is often neglected that inhibits most people from ever reaching their health and fitness goals.
It’s nice to know there are people out there that want to make a difference …and are willing to do more than talk about it!
