My name is Polly Mertens and I am a bulimia recovery coach, a recovery community leader and a personal transformation teacher.
My mission is to help people who want to overcome their eating disorder after 10, 15, 20, 30 or even 40 years make that happen.
My clients are usually women over the age of 30 who have had an eating disorder for 5 years or more and keep relapsing and can’t find their way to lasting recovery.
Getting help for an eating disorder is a big step and I wish you the best wherever you are on your recovery journey. It is possible to have lasting recovery from all types of food addictions and eating disorders.
I had bulimia for 20 years and have been in complete recovery since 2005. I’m grateful to my husband for his support and my ever unfolding life.
When I’m not working on my eating disorder recovery website, writing on my bulimia recovery blog or collaborating with others in recovery, I’m probably out hiking, globetrotting, playing with my animals, gardening or spending time with my wonderful husband. I love what I do now and enjoy making a big ripple in the world with my work.
Being a teacher and coach is something I never went to school for, but I love being a contribution to others so much and I am so grateful for having the opportunity to help people live with joy, good health and fulfillment. There’s no greater gift or reward I could imagine.
I live in the happiest place on earth (San Luis Obispo, CA) according to Oprah Winfrey. It’s a small town on the Central Coast of California between LA and San Francisco.
I have a healthy relationship with food, my body and I can honestly say I’m comfortable in my own skin, with who I am and am proud of the work I do and the life I am living.
My goal with my blog is to encourage you to start your journey, to be a guide as you pull yourself out of the obsessive overeating that has taken over your life and choose a life of recovery and happiness for yourself.
I hope you’ll download my ebook which includes amazing bulimia recovery stories and allow us to stay in touch. I will share with you what I’ve learned about how to have lasting recovery, be healthy, confident and have a happy life. It is a process. A journey. Allow me to be your guide and help you find your way to recovery, too.
