Mika Brzezinski: Women Are 'Tired Of Lying' About Their Weight And 'Starving'

Mika Brzezinski: 'Tired Of Lying' And 'Starving'

Mika Brzezinski has long been open about her own struggle with disordered eating, but now she is speaking out on behalf of other women.

The "Morning Joe" co-host said Thursday morning that she hopes more women will join her and take a stand against the fear of gaining weight.

"We're all just tired of lying about it [weight]," she said. "And starving."

Brzezinski has gotten lots of attention in the last few days for tweeting out her weight on Monday, along with a picture of herself standing on the scale.

Brzezinski then appeared on "The View" Wednesday, where Barbara Walters and the rest of the co-hosts said her tweet was "brave" and something most women "would never do." Brzezinski said Thursday that it led to a "good conversation" where the "View" women began sharing their weight as well.

The MSNBC host has opened up about her struggle with food in the past year. She first spoke out about her eating disorder in April 2013, and since then has continued to fight her battle against food obsession in the public eye. She tweeted about her weight in August and said that she feels happier at a heavier weight.
