Guiltless Recommends: Proud2Bme

I think we can all attest that the teen years were both fantastic and horrible at the same time. You're learning so much about yourself and the world, sometimes it's hard to stay positive, and have a strong self-esteem in the neverending battle of popularity and who will be homecoming king and queen. That's why i was so excited to see this new website:

National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) recently launched Proud2Bme, an online community created for teens by teens, the inspires positive body image, health and happiness. It covers everything from fashion and beauty to news, culture, and entertainment—all with the goal of promoting positive body image and encouraging healthy attitudes about food and weight.You can be inspired by teens that traveled to Capitol Hill to push for eating disorder insurance coverage legislation , read other thank you letters to our bodies. If you are worried that a friend might have an eating disorder this article tells the best way to approach that friend. Because you don't need to be a size zero to be a hero...

So spread the word! If you're a teacher, tell your students. If you have a little brother or sister, tell them. If you are a teenager share this with your friends! You can also follow Proud2Bme on Twitter and like them on Facebook.(Oh and Happy Halloween!)
