National Eating Disorder Awareness Week

    I wanted to do this post today because not only is this week National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, but February is Eating Disorder Awareness Month.

Here's this years NEDA poster....

2014 NEDAwareness Poster 
    
 Eating Disorder Awareness is something I'm very passionate about, and I've spent a lot of time trying to raise awareness for the cause. I've spent a lot of time researching and learning about these illnesses and today I wanted to take the time to ask you to please educate yourself about these deadly diseases.

    The reason I'm so passionate about this cause is because so many people don't understand what eating disorders are. People think eating disorders are a choice, but they're not, eating disorders are a disease, they are a mental illness and should be taken seriously because they kill thousands of people every year.

So please take a few minutes today and get in the know and visit www.nedawareness.org 

By visiting the NEDA website you can learn more information about eating disorders, how to get help, and you can also find NEDA events near you that you can get involved in.

XoXo,
