Default Eating Disorders Awareness Week

I just thought I'd post that National Eating Disorders Awareness Week is from Feb 26th - March 4th, this year. One organization that's involved is www.nationaleatingdisorders.org, but there are others as well. I know that some plus-size models become involved in speaking engagements and such, and it's all for a good cause.





I think the effectiveness of some of the events varies, though, and there's still too much effort focussed on decrying negative images instead of advocating positive ones. But the criticism is still necessary and useful, especially if it's done well.

Here's a link to a great public-service announcement about eating disorders in the form of a web video. It was broadcast as a TV commercial in Canada, not long ago:

I think it makes a pretty devastating point...
