St. Petersburg, Florida --After leaving the anchor desk at CBS Evening News a year and a half ago, Katie Couric is making headlines herself, opening up about her battle with bulimia.

Couric told More Magazine she was inspired to talk about the eating disorder after interviewing singer Demi Lovato about hers.

She didn't think it was a major news bulletin but believes people saw her as someone who had it all together.

The 56-year-old hasn't re-married after her husband died 15 years ago and admits it's not easy dating at her age saying everyone comes with baggage and it's just a matter of if you can fit it in the overhead bin.

The February issue of More Magazine is at newsstands now.
