It is National Eating Disorders Awareness Week.


The National Eating Disorders Association is sponsoring the week of awareness, and events are held all over the nation in order to bring focus and awareness to eating disorders such as bulimia and anorexia . The theme this year for National Eating Disorders Awareness week is: "Be comfortable in your genes. Wear jeans that fit the REAL you. While you can adopt a healthy lifestyle and aim to be fit for your particular body type, you cannot change your genes. Everyone needs to start feeling comfortable in their genes by wearing comfortable jeans.
Women are particularly vulnerable when it comes to physicak appearance and weight issues. It is important to realize that fighting your natural size and shape can lead to unhealthy dieting practices, poor body image and sometimes eating disorders.

Some inspiration from the National Eating Disorders site:

"Be comfortable in your genes.
Your genes play a role in determining your
body size and shape. Embrace your genes.
Stop trying to turn your body
into something it’s not.
Wear jeans that fit the TRUE you."
