Eating Disorders Awareness Week (pg. 2)

Ready to Think Twice?

Next time you look in the mirror and don't see the body of a supermodel staring back - chill. It means you're normal, not abnormal. And don't go starvin' yourself to be bone-thin like Nicole Richie or have your Dickies fall off in public like Avril Lavigne. Isn't it much easier to have your pants stay on than to have to battle a life-threatening disorder? Wouldn't ya rather wear a size 12 or 14 (like the average American women) than put your life in danger?

Do You Worry About Your Weight?

  • Yes, I always think I look fat.
  • Sometimes, but I try not to obsess about it.
  • Never. I'm healthy and look like a million bucks.
  • No, but I have friends who do.

If you're willing to face the consequences, then yes. I know a lot of people say violence is never the answer, but in truth it sometimes is. If you really want somebody to leave you alone, then fight. If you win, it shows that you're dominant over that person and hopefully he/she will leave you alone.

Honestly, I think it's better to get your feelings out sooner rather than later- maybe ask him why he's being mean to you... Though, don't say it in such a way that annoys boys... If you know what I mean.
