These days, Shawn Johnson East is prepping for baby no. 3 (!!). But in 2008, she was a 16-year-old chasing after big Olympic dreams. The 4-time medalist is on the show today reflecting on what it was like to find success at a young age, and shares what it was like for her to adjust after Beijing to "normal" life post-sport. We talk about her comeback, her thoughts on working with a therapist, and what it's been like to shift into a new chapter as a mother, wife, and speaker. Plus: How she's embraced her body after years of battling disordered eating, and what she's most excited for right now.
