Sarah Callazzo: How did an eating disorder become the biggest part of you?
Our next guest is Sarah Callazzo. She used to wear smaller jeans and fake a smile. She liked having as many friends as possible. She would never consider herself a leader. Her camera roll was filled with ‘progress pictures’ of her body. She was fighting a losing battle with herself. She was in denial and was exhausted – but she would’ve never admitted it. Around 2 years ago, Sarah decided she didn’t want to be that girl anymore. She was exhausted from trying to be the girl that ‘does it all.’ Rather than trying to be a superwoman for everyone else, she wanted to be her own hero. She has been actively working on her own recovery while encouraging others to do the same.
In episode 224 of the Fraternity Foodie Podcast, we find out why Sarah chose the University of Rhode Island, what was special about ZTA at URI, what her biggest challenge was as chapter president, where her body image issues started, how an eating disorder became the biggest part of her, what Sarah does when she struggles today, how we can avoid missing 95% of your life to weigh 5% less and get that message out to the masses, and the resources that are available to those who are struggling with an eating disorder.
