DWTS is the only thing that has ever made me excited about Mondays. I just started watching it a few seasons ago and I am obsessed! The stories that are told, the family that is created, and the growth you see is heartwarming.
There was a dance last night done by one of my favorite pros Mark Ballas (I fell in love with him when he was partnered with Sadie Robertson) And Alexa PenaVega.
She opened up about her struggle with Bulimia. And the dance they created to portray that struggle was spot on. See for yourself below:
In an interview with People magazine Alexa said this, “You read textbooks and it’s just so, well, textbook. ‘This is how you get over bulimia.’ But it is so much deeper than that,” she continued. “I wish I’d had somebody who could have told me, ‘It’s scary.’ You struggle giving it up. You want to get rid of it but you struggle because, in a strange way, you enjoy it.”
Alexa’s bravery and courage to share her story will touch many lives and help so many people who are going through or have gone through the same struggle.
