Episode 19: Rachel’s Recovery Story

Episode description:

Peace Meal’s Recovery Series aims to share stories of those in eating disorder recovery in hopes of starting conversations, breaking stigmas, and encouraging healing. On today’s episode, we talk to Rachel Moe. Rachel has struggled with anorexia, bulimia, exercise addiction, and substance use disorder. Now a registered nurse, Rachel leads an eating disorders anonymous meeting in Duluth, MN and runs the blog Moe’s Musings, which focuses on leading an authentic, vulnerable life.

Episode show notes:

Rachel Moe started using eating disorder behaviors in junior high. Rachel reflects on the years she spent struggling with her dual diagnosis of an eating disorder and substance use disorder until some significant turning points forced her to reach out for help. Rachel describes how embracing vulnerability and self-compassion helped her find her way through the recovery process. An alum of The Emily Program, Rachel is passionate about sharing her story and creating support systems for others who are struggling.

In the episode, Rachel says “I realized that if I put half the amount of energy into my eating disorder into my recovery, I could do amazing things.”
