“Girls develop eating disorders and self-image problems before drug or alcohol problems. Nevertheless, there are drug and alcohol programs in almost every school, but no eating disorder programs. Societal pressures to be thin are rising, however, research for eating disorders continues to be under-funded and insurance coverage for treatment is inadequate.”

EXACTLY 1 YEAR AND 4 MONTHS AGO - I made the decision to change my lifestyle. I threw out my alcohol and my junk food, I joined a gym and I got rid of the negativity. I set out to get in the best shape of my life, and I achieved that… I will continue to try and improve, each and every day.
What will you do today that will make YOU proud a year from now?
