Robyn Cruze, Author
I am thrilled to share an inspiring conversation with Robyn Cruze, a trailblazer in the world of eating disorder recovery and co-author of Making Peace with Your Plate: Eating Disorder Recovery.
We had a chance meeting at the Barnes and Noble on the 3rd Street Promenade when I was chaperoning my son’s field trip. In the calm of the storm when the kids were being read a story I told her about this project and she immediately raised her hand to share her story. It is one of persistence, courage and hope.
Robyn is a double winner enjoying recovery from alcoholism and a fierce eating disorder.
Along the way to finding her calling, Robyn had success as:
- A professional film and TV actress from 1992 to 2003
- A film research and executive assistant to a successful film writer
- A designer of a hugely popular and highly profitable maternity clothing line
- The author of an affirmation book for children
- How her calling came to her in stages
- How a painful relapse brought her truth and clarity
- Dealing with feelings of failure about a previous career
- How she redefined success
- What to do when you’re told ‘you suck’ at your passion
- How full recovery from an eating disorder is possible!
