Leading a double life




If you suffer from eating issues,
it’s more than likely that you put on a brave face
when you venture out into the real world. 

Your friends, co-workers, partners, even your 
closest family members might not even suspect 
that you’re struggling with food. 
To them, everything seems fine.

Little do they know that at the very 
core of your being, you 
actually feel like you’re losing your mind.

Isn’t it amazing how we can
continuously broadcast a perfect image of 
ourselves to the people around us, 
while inside we feel absolutely tormented? 

Just like secret agents,
we guard this part of ourselves 
from the outside world. 
Believe me, I know all about it because
I too used to be one of those secret agents. 

This double life arises out of a deep sense of shame.
However, hiding our struggles also
perpetuates our shameful feelings.

The more we hide from our true selves
and the people around us, the less 
likely we are to admit that we have
a problem and actually do something about it. 

I’ve struggled with an eating disorder myself. 
I’ve also worked with some of the 
bravest people you could ever hope to meet 
and helped them to recover. 

So you can trust me when I say that 
there is nothing for you to be ashamed of. 

You’re not a weak or cowardly person
if you have issues with food.

Struggling with an eating disorder
doesn’t mean that you’re damaged in any way.

Your food obsession is not your fault 
and you don’t have to hide it. 

The truth is that leading a double life is complicated.
It’s mentally draining and it truly takes its toll. 

You’re putting all of this effort into presenting
a flawless image to the rest of the world,
while that energy could instead be
directed towards recovering
and not having to play the
game of hide-and-seek ever again!

Ask yourself, 
Is there somebody in your life that
you could share your secret with?
A friend, partner, family member, a doctor or a therapist?

If you can’t think of anyone, that’s ok. 
I get it, 
I know it’s hard to find someone
you feel comfortable opening up to. 

That’s one of reasons I
created the HealED Coaching program.

I wanted to provide a safe, confidential space.
A non-judgemental environment. 
Where the person you are talking to understands exactly 
what your going through. 
Because they’ve been there too. 

They’ve suffered with a ED and know exactly 
what it feels like to hide the true you from the world. 
You can get your own coach here.

Sharing secrets can be incredibly empowering and freeing.

Once you have somebody like that by your side,
you can gradually break free from your perfect image
and focus on living the one, true life that you deserve. 


Your friend and coach,


Ali Kerr
