Candid Recovery

About Me October 1, 2012

 My husband and I enjoying a stroll in the parkHello! My name is Marie Martiínez, and I’m currently living in Ames, Iowa with my husband Jesús and my dog Sheldon. When I was about 11 or 12 years old, I began a vicious battle with an eating disorder that completely consumed my life for about 15 years. After years and years and years of outpatient, inpatient, and finally residential treatment, something finally “clicked” in my mind, and I was determined to fight as hard as I could to get better… for ME. Now that I am doing well and my recovery is going strong (note: that doesn’t mean I don’t still have struggles… I just DEAL with them in ways that don’t involve disordered eating!), I want to devote my time to helping others work through and surpass their eating disorders. Whether you have been formally diagnosed with an eating disorder, have body image/self-esteem struggles, or simply want to improve your health and your relationship with your body, I hope this blog will be a source of both support and information for you! Thank you so much for stopping by, and please don’t hesitate to contact me if you need/want to reach out! (
