What an incredible honor to be amongst such brilliance. NEDA is the first place I turned to when I decided to get help for my eating disorders, and their annual conference was a remarkable demonstration of all the incredibly responsible, motivating, hard work that they do.

That is such an honor, Lynn! What sort of other lectures were there at the NEDA conference? This is an organization very dear to my heart as well; and every year I make sure to participate/get the word out when NEDAW occurs

You look great! Elegant, sophisticated and HOT…like Abe should take you out for a wine & dine night. Ok…no wine for you, but you get the idea.

Congrats to you and Lisa for some well deserved recognition.

Like Andrea, I loved to hear you speak at the conference. You were wonderful! I was so excited to meet you after with Judy, in regards to her daughter, Ellen. :) You are doing amazing things! Keep up the wonderful work…and Recovery!

Great Job Lynn! You looked stunning (hello…that CUFF? LOVE!) BUT the most important part is that you shared the beauty within, and I know I wish I had known about an organization such as NEDA whilst struggling with my disorder. I wish I could’ve heard you speak:)
