Lilian Garcia speaks about overcoming eating disorder

Lilian Garcia was hired by the World Wrestling Federation as a ring announcer in 1999. She made her debut on the August 23, 1999, episode of Raw is War in Ames, Iowa. She was involved in her first angle on the September 13 episode of Raw is War, when Jeff Jarrett applied a figure four leglock to her after she angered him by announcing his loss by disqualification to Luna Vachon.

Through his official Facebook account, Lilian talked about overcoming eating disorder: "For years I suffered with body image and body dismorphia. No matter how small I got, I would always perceive myself as having some kind of flaw where I would be ashamed of my body.

(And for sure I would NEVER be able to post a photo like this.) That led me straight into an eating disorder that I suffered for years. With the help of therapy, education and self love I was able to little by little cherish the body I was given and learn how to properly take care of it with the right eating habits and exercise.

I tell you this because if any of you out there are suffering from hating your body, you are not alone. But I will assure you that resorting to being anorexic or bulimic will NOT make your situation better."
