into the light.

Pissed about the way women are treated by the media?  Pissed off by your friend who is diet-obsessed?  Pissed by the amount of women dying slowly from eating disorders everyday?  Well, here’s where you can get angry.  As a woman who’s been on the other side of food obsession, I consider it my duty to share my story, and to advocate for a society which promotes healthy body image.  No calories, weight numbers, or body-checking allowed here.

Who am I?  Just another city-dwelling, late twenty-something professional who found the courage to be normal.  For eating disorders bring us to the extremes – they render us emaciated and silent, or out-of-control and belligerent.  I used to swing between both extremes, but now I hover somewhere near the middle.  I am lucky.  I have supportive friends, a great therapist, and a laugh that cannot be contained. 

Spread the word.  The madness has got to stop.  And I hope you can find a little hope and inspiration here.
