I often receive requests for a song about struggling with an eating disorder. Well, I can’t pretend to know how difficult that fight must be, but I once loved a girl dealing with ED and self-image issues, and I wrote this song for her. I hope everyone who listens to this believes that someone out there is ready to love them—just the way they are.

There are currently over 30 million Americans who struggle with eating disorders, and this number has been growing over the past two decades. In spite of this, eating disorder research continues to be under-funded, insurance coverage for treatment is inadequate and societal pressures to be thin remain rampant.
$30 provides 30 minutes on the NEDA Helpline. $50 provides 20 CD-ROMs of NEDA Toolkits to parents, teachers, coaches and volunteers. $100 pays for the tools required for a NEDA Navigator as they provide support to individuals and families affected. $250 pays for a full day of operation of the Proud2BMe.org teen website, which promotes confidence in teens across America.
I’m a student and I know its hard to find money to spare, but seriously! Any amount helps! Even if it’s just a few dollars!
Hello! Brittney here. I wanted to let you all know that this is a side blog for me. I am not so sure about the main mod. I am writing regarding messages received here. It’s really difficult to answer messages on here because it is a side blog and I do not have access to the questions unless I am on my phone. Every time I do try to answer messages on my phone it logs me out and I am unsure if the messages have even sent. So if you do not get a reply, please know you are not being ignored. I read every message, so I really apologize for not having the capability to answer them. I will try my best to figure this out!
This addition may only be spotted by a few in public.
Artist Daniel Soares pasted Photoshop toolbar stickers on these H&M posters as a nice little reminder that not all is as it seems. Y’all know how Photoshop messes with our perception of beauty, and I think this is a smart little stunt to snap us back into reality when we start to wonder why we never look like the girls on the posters we walk past every day.
This is Brittney (one of your mods, littlebirdybuddha.tumblr.com). I hope you are all having a great day. I just wanted to invite you to a new blog I just created focused on thankfulness, mindfulness, and spiritual recovery. It is thegratefulday.tumblr.com and I would love to have you on board. My goal is to inspire more people to give thanks for the little (or big) things in our lives. Hopefully with this thanks we can begin to view our lives in a new way. So far it has been really helpful for me.
And I would just like to give a shout out to Jeyn (the main mod here and an incredibly good friend) for giving me this board for Christmas. You inspire me every day and I love you.
Negative urgency (i.e., the tendency to engage in rash action in response to negative affect) has emerged as a critical personality trait contributing to individual differences in binge eating. However, studies investigating the extent to which genetic and/or environmental influences underlie the effects of negative urgency on binge eating are lacking. Moreover, it remains unclear whether negative urgency-binge eating associations are simply a result of the well-established role of negative affect in the development/maintenance of binge eating. The current study addresses these gaps by examining phenotypic and etiologic associations between negative urgency, negative affect, and dysregulated eating (i.e., binge eating, emotional eating)….
Looks like aerie is ready for its closeup — its unretouched closeup. aerie, American Eagle’s sister store for lingerie, has launched aerie Real, a Spring 2014 ad campaign featuring all unairbrushed models.
This is awesome news to wake up to! Young girls look up to these models with so called “perfect bodies” in which influences their own perception of their own body types (which all are beautiful). Hopefully more brands/designers will follow in their footsteps and it’ll be one more healthy step (each step counts) towards fighting eating disorders Awesome job, Aerie and with much thanks!!!
