BODY IMAGE & EATING DISORDERS
Low self-esteem, self-harm, bulimia, overeating, anorexia, binge eating, self-loathing.
You know, girl, this is a hard world to live in. And especially hard for women. It's one thing
to be constantly bombarded by tabloids: "Lose 10 Pounds in 10 Days," "Miracle Fat Burn!,"Michelle's 95-lb Weight Gain."
It's an entirely additional thing to be bombarded by moms, dads, friends, immature boys, coaches, and gym teachers.
But hear us when we tell you:
you are worth more.
Easier said than thought, right? We know, we know.
Alas, we are here. And have provided some pretty kick-butt resources to guide you on your journey to self-love. Check out blogs, Instagram handles, and the Project Light Ministries website for more!
