Love Your Body Week


LOVE YOUR BODY WEEK 2016: Febuary 8-February 12

        as part of National Eating Disorder Awareness Week



The theme for 2015 was "I Had No Idea" to raise awareness towards the significant impact eating disorders have on individuals, families, and communities across the nation. The more people who learn about these life- threatening illnesses, the more lives we can save.

               I had NO IDEA...

                           ...that the "perfect" images I see every day are digital illusions.

                                        ...that bullying can trigger disordered eating.

                                                    ...that my passion had become a problem.

                         ...that eating disorders don't discriminate. 

Get in the Know.  Get Help.  Get Involved.
